The 2020 modern era Hall of Fame class has been announced,:

Troy Polamalu is the only 1st ballot guy. (Was there ever any doubt? Nope.)

The long overdue Steve Atwater and Edgerrin James made it.

Isaac Bruce made it. Bruce is a borderline guy in my opinion but I don't have any problem with the selection.

Steve Hutchinson rounds it out. Not a bad pick by any means but I'd have voted for Alan Faneca instead.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

The line on SB LIV only moved a half point in the last two weeks. People are making wagers on anything from which non-QB will throw a touchdown pass (a la "Philly Special"--a $500 bet nets you $1500) to how long it will take Demi Lovato to sing the National Anthem.

At the half, it is all tied up between the 49ers and the Chiefs 10-10 thanks to a pass to the 49ers Kyle Juszczyk from Jimmy Garoppoloand the extra point from Robbie Gould.

1st of all, congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on being Super Bowl 54 Champions.

The 49ers had the upper hand most of the night but Patrick Mahomes came to life just in the nick of time. Mahomes threw a key 44 yard pass to Tyreek Hill to set a Mahomes to Kelce touchdown and Damain Williams scored the winning touchdown with 2:44 left and a strong Chiefs pass rush finished the deal. Great players aren't always great, they're just great when they have to be.

Cobgatulatins to Andy Reid as well. Winning a Super Bowl should ensure his future place in Canton.

Oh, and seeing the NFL 100 All Time Team on the field before the game was totally awesome baby! :)

I'm so happy for Andy Reid. No one deserved a title more than him. So happy he finally brought one home. He absolutely clinched his spot in Canton.
Pete Carroll has the biggest balls in the world.

I'm so happy for the Chiefs and their Super Bowl win!

Guess those who bought Madden 20 will be glad we did, because the cover athlete in that game won the Big Game. And he's the youngest MVP ever.

I'm so happy for Andy Reid. No one deserved a title more than him. So happy he finally brought one home. He absolutely clinched his spot in Canton.
Yes, he'll go down in history as the man who brought an end to the 50-year championship drought.

All of us in the Philadelphia area pulled for him as well; though I of course wish things had gone differently way back in XXXIX, this was well worth the wait for he.

Andy Reid had great teams, but lacked a QB with leadership qualities. Patrick Mahomes was the answer and it finally paid off for Reid.

Fast numbers: overnight ratings showed 102 million viewers last night, the tenth largest Super Bowl audience.

Cleveland's Myles Garrett has had his indefinite suspension lifted by the NFL. The Browns say they will welcome him back.
