Brookdale Students Ambivalent About Super Bowl

Anthony Corsaro, Staff Writer

The Kanas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles have punched their tickets into Super Bowl 57. The teams will face off at 6:30 p.m on Sunday, Feb. 12.

While many Brookdale students are upset that neither of the Giants nor the Jets made it all the way, others are just as happy to see Philadelphia in the big game.

“I’ve been an Eagles fan my whole life, so I think it’s pretty obvious who I’m rooting for,” said Nicholas Calco, a 21-year-old business major.  “I think we have a good shot. No team has looked able to beat us yet, so I’m excited.”

To get here, Philadelphia handled business against the San Francisco 49ers, winning comfortably by a score of 31-7. The Eagles are led by their young quarterback Jalen Hurts, who has yet to win a Super Bowl.

The Chiefs, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, were able to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game, by a score of 23-20. Mahomes has already won one Super Bowl and is looking for his second ring.

“I don’t think I’m gonna watch the game to be honest,” said Joseph Basile, a 21-year-old journalism major. “I hate both teams, so there’s really no point in watching the game for me.”
