The start of the MLS season is not quite here yet, but if you need a sports fix on Sunday afternoon, you could check out what the NFL calls their “Super Bowl,” which can be translated as their version of MLS Cup.

This is the 55th edition of the Super Bowl, so it’s been around a bit longer than the MLS Cup, but one can argue which one is truly more popular. Still, I suppose it’s all in the eye of the beholder.

The NFL equivalent of the LA Galaxy as kings of MLS Cup is the New England Patriots, who have six Super Bowl titles all-time. This year, the Super Bowl will be held between the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs and challenger Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It’s a good news/bad news situation when it comes to the length of games, which generally run four hours or more. The good news is frequent commercials, especially during the Super Bowl, allow you to use the restroom, attend to your dog, or do any other manner of tasks, but also all those commercials literally slow down the game, too. You’re gonna want to settle in because it’s not a quick thing.

You can watch Super Bowl LV on Sunday at 3:30 pm PT on CBS, which you can watch via FuboTV.
