Richard Sherman and the San Francisco 49ers will be in Miami next week as they look to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 54. Whoever wins will be given the Lombardi Trophy as every single winning player will have their name etched into history. This is one the most intriguing matchups we have seen in a while and fans can’t wait to see how it goes down. Having said that, whoever wins will have a huge choice to make as it pertains to going to the White House to meet the President.
White House visits are customary for championship teams, especially when it comes to football. President Donald Trump has had a tumultuous relationship with the league and many players have taken notice. Recently, Sherman was asked by Scott Ostler the San Francisco Chronicle whether or not he would want to go meet Trump. As you can imagine, Sherman wasn’t thrilled by the idea.

“I haven’t thought about it. We’ve got a long way between now and then, but I doubt it,” Sherman said. One Sherman’s teammates, Nick Bosa, is known as a big Trump supporter so it will be interesting to see what kind conflict arises should Sherman decide not to go to the White House. Of course, none this matters if the 49ers lose.

If the San Francisco 49ers get their wish, they’ll be taking the field on February 2nd in their classic all-white throwback uniforms.
According to a report by David Lombardi The Athletic, 49ers’ cornerback Richard Sherman is leading the charge for the Niners to wear the throwbacks in Super Bowl LIV, similar to the way they did the last time they won the Super Bowl 25 years ago.

During that 1994 season, each NFL team wore throwbacks in certain weeks in honor the league’s 75th anniversary. The Niners, however, continued to wear the throwbacks once they got on a winning streak and they ultimately donned the classic red uniforms as they defeated the San Diego Chargers in the Super Bowl.
Now, the Niners are looking to wear the white throwbacks in Miami, although the league may not approve the move. San Francisco recently got an exemption to wear the all-white throwbacks in their Week 17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, but Lombardi reports “the NFL currently won’t allow it” for Super Bowl LIV.
The Kansas City Chiefs, listed as the home team, are expected to wear their red and white uniforms on February 2nd. It just remains to be seen if the Niners will be wearing white with gold pants, or the preferred all-white throwbacks.
While speaking at a dinner in Central London, hosted by his Sentebale charity, Prince Harry addressed his split from the royal family, marking the first time that he’s spoken publicly about the subject he and his wife Meghan Markle announced their decision to do so.
“It was so many months talks after so many years challenges,” revealed the Duke Sus. “And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option. What I want to make clear is we’re not walking away, and we certainly aren’t walking away from you.”
He went on to confirm that the resolution he and the Duchess sought was to continue to serve the Queen “without public funding.” However, the compromise was not met.
“Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible,” he said. “I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am.”
Harry’s words arrived just one day after Buckingham Palace ficially announced that Harry and Meghan would be losing their royal titles “His Royal Highness” and “Her Royal Highness.”
“I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander in chief, and I am incredibly grateful to her and the rest my family, for the support they have shown Meghan and I over the last few months,” Harry added. “I will continue to be the same man who holds his country dear and dedicates his life to supporting the causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me.”
The Kansas City Chiefs are ficially scheduled to play Super Bowl LIV to face f against the San Francisco 49ers, making it the first time in 50 years that the Chiefs will be advancing to the Super Bowl. The Chiefs earned their ticket to Miami by beating out the Tennessee Titans on Sunday for the AFC championship while the 49ers beat out the Green Bay Packers for the NFC championship by a score 37-20.
Naturally, the 49ers are well-versed in Super Bowl visits, having won 34 53 total appearances. Their last stint was in 2012 while their last championship win took place in 1994 in Miami.
In this bout nostalgia and considering the same red color both squads, the 49ers will be pushing for the league to allow them to wear the all-white throwback jersey fashioned after their 1994 season throwback jerseys that they wore to commemorate the 75th anniversary the NFL. According to cornerback Richard Sherman, however, the NFL has not allowed this to take effect yet.
The result this petition will actualize on February 2nd at the Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium home.

Within minutes a man who calls himself a cop takes over the steering wheel and ends up killing the man, leaving them with the car and the police on the way. “Initially they were written for white people which, plot-wise, would have been a different story,” Issa said the movie. “It’s not a story about race but we wanted to acknowledge our race and the fact that we’re an interracial couple.”
“The aspects I love the most are the rare moments sweetness between the two leads,” Kumail said his favorite moments. “They spend so much the movie bickering that the hints what they used to be are my favorite.”

Joe Burrow and the LSU Tigers had one the best seasons in college football history. They were able to cap f the year with a huge win in the National Championship game against the Clemson Tigers. Whenever a team wins the National title, it is customary for that team to come to the White House and meet the president. Ever since Donald Trump took control the White House, these meetings have been quite bizarre as he usually includes some peculiar antics.
This time around, Trump was particularly jol, albeit erratic. Near the end his speech to the LSU players, Trump turned the whole thing into a mini-rally as he began to harp on impeachment and how he’s a great president. He also spoke about the U.S military and its counter-terrorism efforts. He even likened the Tigers to the military, which got a huge laugh from the crowd and even the players.
Admittedly, some the players seemed to be uncomfortable with the whole situation, including Burrow who truly couldn’t believe what he was hearing. Trump can definitely be a bit a wild-card and this was one those times. At this point, we just hope the Tigers got better food than Clemson, who was treated to a smorgasbord fast food.
