LOS ANGELES — Amanda Gorman recited a kick-ass poem at President Joe Biden’s inauguration. Now she plans to do the same at Super Bowl LV. The 22-year-old poet, who captivated America with “The Hill We Climb,” has been selected as an honorary captain for the February 7th interleague matchup featuring our Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Amanda will participate in the coin toss and she’ll expatiate one of her lyrical oeuvres to honor town heroes Trimaine Davis (a teacher), Suzie Dorner (a nurse) and James Martin (a Marine Corps veteran).

All three busted their asses to help others cope with the coronavirus pandemic.

“The recitation of the poem will air nationally on CBS and be featured in-stadium,​” said an NFL official.

In case you didn’t know, Trimaine proffered technological succor to penurious individuals who aren’t computer savvy. Suzie, who lost her grandparents to COVID-19, worked overtime in her understaffed hospital to nurse debilitated patients. And James did his part to aid disabled veterans.

Like Amanda, they’ll be acknowledged as honorary captains.

“We are honored to recognize these three individuals who represent the best in all of us,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “During this incredibly challenging time in our lives, Trimaine, Suzie and James have exemplified the essence of leadership, each in their own way.”

Do you agree with the NFL’s decision to give Amanda a global platform?

Are league officials placing too much emphasis on social injustice?

    To God be the Glory

    you keep moving on Queen👑

  14. I’m boycotting the super bowl 🏈.
    You all should too…. boycott all sports and Hollywood….

  15. We now have a president with dementia holding the nuclear codes that’s more into sniffing kids and having them rub his leg that doing work for the country, Ohh, i’m sorry, he just let Males compete in woman’s sports. PATHETIC! That’s asinine and if that hurts some 🌈 person feelings, TO BAD

  16. Joseph Crispin

    Yay! A sexist poem during the Super Bowl.

  17. Affirmative action: real systemic racism

  18. It’s gonna be full of socialist cancel culture unicorn bs

  19. American football and poetry mix well 😒

  20. PropagandaBowl

  21. …And here come the racist jokes by a bunch of womenless, backed up like traffic, idiots. I swear…some of you really need to get laid.

    I wish you nothing but the best young lady. Unfortunately she’s being used as a pawn for the NFL. Nevertheless she’s amazing!

  22. Lots of angry, spiteful racist Whites on this post. Can’t stomach a level playing field,can you? The inner White Supremacy (pseudo white Supremacy that is) in you will not let you tolerate seeing the spotlight shared by someone as great as you. Your inner xenophobia moves you to make the hateful comments you’ve made in this post. My question to you all is how can you have an inner belief in your innate superiority when you fear competition and being outdone by others? I’ll answer that question gladly. It’s because White Supremacy is a myth intended to foster a false sense of superiority in those who espouse it.

  23. Thank God, I thought they were going to allow her to belch out her liberal fantasy dogma during the halftime bump and grind……..

  24. Yay Amanda Gorman! You are a very beautiful and strong woman! Keep up the great work!

  25. Emily Van Heukelom

    She is the dream!! So proud 💜💜💜

  26. What if she was White..or asian or middleasterns.. would she have getting the same publicity?? is it just because she is black.?? because her poem was garbage, nothing special about it..because black people really knows how to promote themselfs 24/7.

  27. rip superbowl

  28. James Anderson

  34. TikTok being involved with the halftime show now this? 😂 I’m still so confused on why everyone is busting a nut over this woman. Myself and everyone I asked have agreed that she was just mediocre.

  35. That’s Just Crazy Talk

    Another great way to DIVIDE America!!!!!
