The matchup in this years Super Bowl features two teams that haven’t won the Lombardi trophy in quite some time. The Kansas City Chiefs haven’t won a Super Bowl in 50 years. Not since Super Bowl IV and the famed “65 Toss Power Trap” play call of their Hall of Fame coach then Hank Stram. The San Francisco 49ers haven’t won a Super Bowl in 25 years. That was in Super Bowl XXIX, which also happened to be in Miami, where Steve Young threw for a record 6 touchdown passes. Both of them in the 2019 season have been among the most consistent teams. The Chiefs will be looking to win their second title, while the 49ers will be looking to win their sixth.
The photo above is one of many I took on February 2,2016. It was the first Lakers game I had ever attended at Staples Center. I was with my younger brother who had also never been to a Lakers game in his entire life. We were fortunate enough to get tickets to this game thanks to our oldest brother who purchased them for us. This was during Kobe Bryant’s last year playing in the NBA. It was one of the last sporting events I would attend in person while still living in Southern California at the time. Kobe scored 38 points with 5 rebounds and 5 assists and in typical Kobe fashion willed his team to victory down the stretch. The Lakers defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 119-115.
