Outside Raymond James Stadium on Sunday night, three barefaced Buccaneers fans jumped up and down on the roof of a white car, waving their arms. One man held out his phone and recorded the largely maskless Tampa crowd cheering, flying flags, hugging and colliding into each other as the Tom Brady-led Buccaneers won the franchise’s first Super Bowl in 18 years.
“I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” exclaimed a not-at-all surprised Captain Louis Renault in the classic film Casablanca, and CNN reporter Randi Kaye found herself shocked, shocked to find that Super Bowl crowds were drinking in Tampa before the big game.
“That didn’t sound like a moment of silence,” one person wrote on Twitter. Another Twitter user wrote the moment of silence was “interesting,” while another person wrote that was the “loudest moment of silence ever.” Other people on Twitter praised the Bidens for showing appreciation for the essential workers. And the NFL showed their appreciation by inviting 7,500 healthcare workers to the Super Bowl.
