Jenny | 5274 comments Pam, it must be weird for you to not have the Patriots in the big game this year.
I was really hoping for a Chiefs/Packers game, but the Packers forgot to come out of the locker room in the first half of their last game. Oh well.

I think I will be rooting for the Chiefs, but I really would just prefer that it is a good game. Or, that there are some really funny commercials.

It is certainly weird not to be in the SB this year but since Jimmy Garoppolo started with the Pats I am happy to cheer him on.
