I had no words last night. Seeing the Seahawks lose, seeing them lose like that, was so shocking I couldn’t speak on it. Couldn’t talk. Couldn’t write. Couldn’t do anything. I wouldn’t call myself a fan of Seattle but I kind of wanted to see them win, just to see someone win two Super Bowls in a row for once. Maybe they could be a dynasty? Maybe they could’ve been the first team to ever three-peat next season? I just wanted to see it.
Then the shotgun happened. From the half-yard line. Then the interception by the Super Bowl’s unlikeliest hero, Malcolm Butler. Then a half-dozen Seattle defensive players were so shocked and frustrated that they nearly started a riot. Now I feel bad for the Seahawks. I feel really bad for their fans. With my social media timelines full of Bostonians ready to celebrate, someone needs to say it: This was the craziest finish to any Super Bowl I’ve ever seen.
But those aren’t the only style points we’re giving out this week.
In Style Points, it’s never about what you do but how you do it. And in this rendition, you see that over and over again. From Russell Westbrook to Wale to some high school kid you’ve probably never heard of, you have to bring the swagger if you want to get recognized.
Today, in Style Points: The Super Bowl’s Unlikely Hero and Russell Westbrook’s Best Dunk of the Year.
