The NFL Super Bowl LIV, the 54th Super Bowl and the 50th modern-era National Football League (NFL) championship game (American Football) will decide the league champion for the league’s 2019 and 100th season. The game will be played on February 2, 2020 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. This will be the 11th Super Bowl hosted by the South Florida region and the sixth Super Bowl hosted in Miami Gardens, which hosted Super Bowl XLIV ten years earlier. At the beginning of the Super Bowl, America the Beautiful (America the Beautiful on YouTube) and the American national anthem (The Star-Spangled BannerUS National Anthem by Beyonce) is intoned, followed by a fly-over over the stadium by a flying unit of the United States Armed Forces (one will have to wait in vain for a while to be able to watch the overflight by the new 6th armed forces, the United States Space Force). This year’s legendary halftime show will be co-headlined by the American artist Jennifer Lopez and the Colombian artist Shakira.

After a mixed season, especially for the New England Patriots and their quarterback and superstar Tom Brady, who were defeated by the Miami Dolphins before the playoffs and finally kicked out of the 2020 playoffs by the Tennessee Titans (The New York Times, 5 January 2020: Tom Brady’s Last Pass Puts His Patriots Future in Doubt, US Today, 5 January 2020: Tom Brady uncertain on future, but retirement ‘pretty unlikely’, NBC News, 5 January 2020: New England Patriots stunned by Titans as rumors swirl over QB Tom Brady’s future), the Minnesota Vikings had taken the New Orleans Saints out of the race in the first round, the Wild Card Playoffs, what was definitely not to be expected as well. The joy at the Vikings lasted for a week only, because they lost clearly against the San Francisco 49ers in the second round. The Baltimore Ravens fared similarly in the game against the Tennessee Titans, who were able to prevail against their opponents in the Divisional Round as well as the Kansas City Chiefs (who set off a points firework against the Houston Texans), the 49ers (against the Minnesota Vikings) and the Green Bay Packers (against the Seattle Seahawks). The Chiefs won the AFC Championship against the Titans and the 49ers won the NFC Championship against the Packers, ending this years play-offs so that both winning teams will face each other at the Super Bowl. It will be very exciting, as almost every time (CNN, 3 February 2020: Led by Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs pull off epic Super Bowl comeback, The Guardian, 3 February 2020: Trump congratulates wrong state for Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl win, The Washington Post, 3 February 2020: ‘That play in our back pocket’: How Patrick Mahomes rallied the Chiefs to a Super Bowl win, The New York Times, 3 February 2020: Chiefs Defeat 49ers in Stunning Super Bowl Comeback, The Washington Post, 3 February 2020: At the Super Bowl halftime show, Jennifer Lopez lived the American Dream, Cosmopolitan, 3 February 2020: Why Jennifer Lopez and Shakira Won’t Get Paid for the Super Bowl Halftime Show, BBC, 17 March 2020: Tom Brady: Quarterback announces he will leave New England Patriots, NPR, 17 March 2020: Tom Brady Bids Farewell To New England Patriots, Says He’s Ready For ‘New Stage’, BBC, 20 March 2020: Tom Brady: Tampa Bay Buccaneers sign ex-Patriots quarterback, Gulf News, 20 March 2020: A career in pictures – The evolution of an NFL GOAT: New England Patriots’ Tom Brady, France24, 8 April 2020: Brady admits concussions, vows not to be forced from NFL, The Washington Post, 28 April 2020: Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are among the best passing combos of the past decade).

CNN, 26 February 2020: Over 1,300 complaints were sent to the FCC about Shakira and J.Lo’s Super Bowl halftime show – good for them, that they never saw this video. It could have led to mass hysteria or even to serial heart attacks.
