Prior to today I had no idea that there used to be a thing called The Playoff Bowl, or the Bert Bell Benefit Bowl, with the proceeds from the game going to the players’ pension fund, and played the week after the then-NFL Championship game or Super Bowl. The game was played in Miami at the Orange Bowl every year it existed. Continue reading Today I learned: There was one a NFL 3rd-place game, and the Detroit Lions are undefeated in it!
The HOTSPROTSTAKES Podcast is back with our fourth episode, and this week went we all in on the Super Bowl.

Usually sports are a way to help us escape the real world for a couple hours. A way to relax and watch insanely talented people do things we can only dream about.

A new year means new things here at HOT SPROTS TAKES, and part of that is making sure we bring you more #content on here every day.
Today, @theryanwalsh and myself bring you the first episode of the HOT SPROTS TAKES Podcast, a (hopefully) weekly podcast where we offer up our hottest takes on whatever is going on in the world at the time.
First off, sorry for the lack of good #content on here, but I was swamped at work this week covering a father accidentally turning his home into a bug bomb and killing four of his children. If you haven’t heard/read about it, a quick google search of “Amarillo poisoning” should tell you everything.
But back to my HOT SPROTS TAKE. I bet that’s the last thing you thought you would see, particularly after the way the Lions closed out the regular season. HINT: NOT GOOD.
