You can catch the game on CBS, ESPN Deportes or 106.5 The Wolf. We've watched the Chiefs play their hearts out all season to take us to another Super Bowl and here we are!  

Whether you're watching the big game at home or socially distanced at a small gathering or outdoor event, we have a list of places that will satisfy your game day food cravings. We haven't forgotten the excitement from the Chiefs 2020 Super Bowl victory and we're hopeful to celebrate another one.

The difference this year is that the pandemic is limiting the types of gatherings and celebrations possible and that's okay!

Do you love soccer? I love soccer. I love playing soccer, watching soccer, and reading about soccer. I grew up playing soccer. Nearly every day of my childhood included playing soccer at Ed Alvey park right down the street from where I grew up.
