Scene of the Week: Chiefs Win Super Bowl LIV
The Kansas City Chiefs and Andy “Big Red” Reid have finally done it. Defeating San Francisco 31-20, the Chiefs are the champions of the world, and the title is very much deserved.
This Chiefs team has been fantastic for a couple of years now, and they almost made the Super Bowl last year. But after a 12-4 season this year and playoff wins against the Texans, Titans, and now 49ers, this Chiefs team is finally victorious. They currently open up as 5-1 odds to repeat as Super Bowl Champs next year.
Patrick Mahomes got the Super Bowl he and this Chiefs team so desperately wanted. Mahomes is the first player ever to receive an MVP award and the Lombardi Trophy before the age of 25 — a stat that is so rare it’s hard to even conceptualize. Mahomes won Super Bowl MVP as well, showing that he does deserve the annual $40 million dollar contract after all.
As for San Francisco, their unbelievable year comes to an end. Filled with exceptional plays and tense moments, it’s a season no 49er fan will ever forget. They open up as having the third best odds to win the Super Bowl next year, and the future is bright in the Bay Area.
Take of the Week: Wizards Will Grab The 8th Spot in the Eastern Conference
The Washington Wizards have had far from a great season, currently standing at 17-31 and seeing little improvement from last year. But with easy games coming up and Rui Hachimura and Mo Wagner coming back, this team might just shock a lot of people.
Upcoming Wizards games include matchups against the Mavericks, Grizzlies, Bulls, Knicks, Cavaliers, Bucks, and Nets. Expect this Wiz team to pick up a lot of wins, sneak into the eighth spot, and surprise many. The concept of the Wizards in the playoffs seems far fetched, but in two weeks, it might not seem so far fetched.
Novak Djokovic Wins 2020 Australian Open
The greatest of all time in the A.O., and that is no exaggeration. Novak Djokovic, 32, has now won his 17th Grand Slam, just two shy of Rafael Nadal and three of Roger Federer. This is now Djokovic’s eighth Australian Open, making the Serbian the most decorated player on Australian soil of all time.
A lot of credit goes to Dominic Thiem, holding Djokovic to five sets and playing well for most of the match. But Thiem could not handle the best of Novak’s play, and eventually lost 6-4 in the final set.
