During the third quarter of Super Bowl LVIII, former Kansas City Mayor Conley jumped down the field and virtually attacked Richie James, forcing him to make a Herculean effort to move completely horizontally.

Special teams are usually unannounced. But in this Super Bowl, it played a somewhat central role. The punters were great, not to mention the record for longest field goal in a Super Bowl was broken twice.

I sincerely admire Conley for bringing grit to a game that has gotten softer over the years.
