For the Super Bowl this year, the NFL is committed to rewarding our nation’s healthcare workers who’ve been bustling their asses on the frontlines of this damn virus.
Overall, 7,500 physicians and medical staffers have been invited to the game after they got their their coronavirus vaccinations. And out of those 7,500, four of them got a personal invite from the great Rob Gronkowski.
“This is champion Rob Gronkowski, I hope you’re having a good day. I heard that you’re a pretty big Bucs fan and, more importantly, that you’ve been a huge help for patients battling tough times this year during the pandemic.
I want you to know that it hasn’t gone unnoticed, and we want you there inside of Raymond James Stadium cheering us on. Congratulations, you’re going to Super Bowl LV as a special guest of the Buccaneers and the NFL.”
With the lowest attendance in Super Bowl history, this year’s game is looking to host about 22,000 fans in their 75,000-seat stadium. In what is essentially a home game for the Bucs, Super Bowl LV is the first time that a Super Bowl team will play in their own stadium.
Tampa Bay-area Cancer treatment nurse Mandy Mueske was PUMPED to receive the message:
“I am so excited. I’ve never been to a Bucs game but I’ve always wanted to, so the first time going is going to be the Super Bowl. I’m so excited … I watch games every Sunday. Go Bucs!”
Gotta love it.
As much as this world sucks sometimes, and lately it seems to suck an awful lot, you still have moments like this to bring you back down to reality.
The game kicks off this Sunday, with Gronk, Brady and the Bucs going head to head with Pat Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
