Iconic Superbowl Moments

Jordan Barish, Staff Writer

The 52nd Super Bowl took place on Sunday, February 4th and was filled with moments that were nothing short of iconic:

  1. Pink performed the National Anthem (extremely well) despite being sick with the flu
  2. NBC Sports suffered equipment failure, causing a black screen to air during commercials for almost 30 seconds–quite the expensive mistake
  3. Tom Brady dropped an insanely easy catch when acting as wide receiver during a wheel route: https://youtu.be/16x035QVrEI (video link)
  4. Nick Foles, when executing a similar play to the one mentioned above, caught a pass for a touchdown: https://youtu.be/YDG3_ewrOWg (video link)
  5. Kickers kept missing field goals and extra points throughout the first half
  6. Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. recreated the Dirty Dancing lift: https://youtu.be/KUoD-gPDahw (video link)
  7. Justin Timberlake performed a tribute to Prince during his halftime performance
  8. Timberlake danced with a (very awkward) kid named Ryan McKenna who has turned into a meme: https://youtu.be/2z3EUY1aXdY from 12:30-13:30                    

Lastly, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Patriots, winning their very first Super Bowl in franchise history
