Good Morning. It’s Sunday, 5 February 2017 and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift.
The Super Bowl is today–after an NFL season that started in the fall of last year, after a bruising round of playoffs, and after a two week media buildup, the big day is finally here. Let’s home for a close game, terrific commercials (for $5 million for 30 seconds they better be terrific), and a blow-the-doors off half-time show (Gaga will deliver).
The photo above is of the Atlanta Falcons arriving at NRG stadium for pre-Super Bowl practice. Good luck to both teams in this biggest of American sporting events.
Some 100 million people all over the world will watch the Super Bowl so it’s only fair to keep an eye on global affairs.
Catch up on what’s happening with the rest of the world by reading the front pages of the World’s Greatest newspapers.
