“Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” That famous quote is credited to UCLA Bruins football coach “Red” Sanders. But if winning is everything, how do players and fans cope with losing?

Super Bowl XLVIII pits two great teams against one another. The Kansas City Chiefs under Patrick Mahomes, seemingly the second coming of Tom Brady, face off against the San Francisco 49ers led by the shockingly good Brock Purdy, who was literally the last player drafted in 2022 and earned the name “Mr. Irrelevant.”

Only one will win. And congratulations to the team that does. Come Super Bowl night, fans of the winning team will be celebrating not just across America, but worldwide, thanks to the NFL’s growing global fan base. The stadium will be filled with confetti and players will be lost in the greatest feeling in sports – winning.
