Justin Timberlake’s return to the stage, paired with prior controversy and the death of a musical icon, have spawned a host of theories about what might happen during halftime.
It’s not uncommon for details of the show to leak ahead of time, but we’re already in full-on denial mode about some of the alleged details of what could happen. Take these with a grain of salt, because anything could happen.
TMZ reported on Saturday that sources who saw the show’s rehearsal said a hologram of Prince would be projected on the stage, much like Snoop Dogg’s performance at Coachella in 2012, during which a Tupac hologram appeared.
Durant was a panelist at an NBA All-Star tech summit on Friday morning, a field he has invested millions in since his move to the Bay Area. Subsequently, he and Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns participated in an “NBA Cares” day-of-service function. That was pretty much the extent of his obligations.
“I’m ready to finish out the season,” Durant said. “I feel like we’re ready to play some of our best ball.”
The Eagles defensive backs say that he is a “monster” to cover in practice. His opponents say that his mixture of speed, size and desire makes him dangerous on every snap.
Eagles quarterback coach John DeFilippo says:
”Alshon’s contribution, his effect here has been huge. I don’t think Alshon gets enough credit for the effect he has on games. It doesn’t always show up in the stats. It bothers me when I hear people say that a receiver like him only affects or makes eight or so plays a game. I could not disagree more. He affects the game. The whole game.”
Brady has had a flawless 2017 season thus far. He has maintained good health and was awarded the NFL’s MVP the night before the Super Bowl. But there’s one last chance for doom.
Rob Gronkowski was the latest victim of the curse in 2016 when a back injury sidelined him for the Patriots’ postseason run last year. But to be fair, things did end up pretty well for the Patriots, winning the Super Bowl and all.
