This week was dominated by a lot of media preoccupation with superstition, propaganda and seemingly endless football hype. Most locals have not only been talking about an inevitable Super Bowl victory but also the potential for a Patrick Mahomes Dynasty.
Everybody is aboard the Kansas City Chiefs bandwagon that will either result in one of the proudest moments in local history or the kind of disappointment that's usually only reserved for the death of a loved one.
Sure, most broke-ass locals are probably thinking about work or (more likely) working today but there's no doubting this moment belongs to middle-class sports fans and their obsession powered by consumerism, willful distraction and ignorance in their adherence to a trivial sports score and just a touch of military industrial complex flexing for good measure.
And so we ask . . .
