The good news is, for once, the New England Patriots and their spoiled fans weren't happy about it. Pettiness for the win! Everyone laugh together at the 7-9 Patriots and their no Super Bowl! Welcome to the club — we've been expecting you!

Outside of the mild satisfaction it brought Dolphins fans knowing that Patriots fans were feeling a certain way, the game was an otherwise all-time snoozefest. There weren't many flashy plays on either team, nor a big moment anyone will remember in three years, much less two decades from now.

Sunday was all about Tom Brady cementing himself as the NFL's Michael Jordan. That's just what it is, so get used to it. We all live in this space now.
The pair had their way with the Chiefs' defense all game long, especially early when Gronkowski scored the first two touchdowns of the game. Dolphins fans have seen these plays in their nightmares for years but seeing the Brady-Gronk connection thrive in Buccaneers uniforms on the NFL's biggest stage felt like watching some unexpected twist at the end of a horror film.
A pair of South Florida subjects made an appearance in South Bowl ads. Jimmy Butler made a quick cameo in the biggest Michelob Ultra ad of the night. He had some greatness accompanying him, too.
One of the more shocking things to see, other than Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs looking like crap, was a local business running a Super Bowl ad. Funky Buddha — a local brewery that started in a strip mall in Boca and grew into the powerhouse in Oakland Park — made an appearance in the second half with a hilariously trippy ad.
Helluva come-up for one of South Florida's little guys turned industry ass-kicker.
