Chiefs Come Back to Win Super Bowl; Halftime Show Unexpectedly Goes NC-17

Does America want to see a middle-aged Puerto Rican woman shake her rump and climb a stripper pole? Like it or not, that’s what millions of Americans watched in the Super Bowl halftime show. Jennifer Lopez, age 50, starred in the show, and Todd Starnes was not amused:

“Mommy, what’s a stripper pole?”
I suspect many parents across the fruited plain were faced with that awkward question after letting their youngsters watch the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira starred in what can only be described as an NC-17 softcore porn production that featured a stripper pole, lots of crotch shots and simulated sex.
“We were disgusted with the raunchy show, provocative gestures, pole dancing, lack of modesty,” one outraged mom wrote on Twitter.
They were doing things that would have made the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah blush.

OK, maybe Starnes is a bit too puritanical, but there was a general agreement on Twitter that this was not suitable for children.

J-Lo is still kind of sexy for a middle-aged Puerto Rican, but I never cared much for her, even back in the day when she was half of “Bennifer” and got a $2-million engagement ring from Ben Affleck. I suppose we should be grateful, however, that the halftime show didn’t go “woke” and lecture us about “rape culture.” Meanwhile, there was a football game:

Patrick Mahomes threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to a comeback victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, 31-20.
Mahomes and the Chiefs were down 20-10 heading into the fourth quarter. The quarterback threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce with 6:13 left to cut the score. Then, with 2:44 left, Mahomes found Damien Williams on a 5-yard touchdown pass to put the Chiefs ahead.
Williams would then put the dagger into the hearts of the 49ers with a 38-yard rushing touchdown to put the game out of reach.
It’s the first Super Bowl victory for the Chiefs in 50 years. Kansas City hadn’t won since Super Bowl IV.

This was the outcome I had expected: The way the Chiefs defeated the Tennessee Titans in the AFC title game showed them to be formidable, and then there is the matter of values. Kansas City represents the American heartland — Missouri has two Republican senators and a Republican governor — whereas San Francisco is home to Nancy Pelosi, and is a crime-riddled dystopia where drug addicts defecate in the streets.
