Drew Brees' playoff heroics become devastating footnote — again

  Drew Brees' playoff heroics become devastating footnote — again NFL playoff heroics reduced to a trivia question — it's something Drew Brees has faced before. The Saints QB's almost-game-winning drive won't be forgotten, but it was overshadowed.The comeback he led in the final minute and a half against the Vikings in U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday night would have gone down in NFL lore and cemented his legacy even further. "This would’ve been one for the ages, if we had been able to pull it off," he said afterward.

"It was a pleasure to collaborate with Carrie for this inspirational song," the rapper says.

In addition to the Super Bowl, the song will also be used during the Winter Olympic Games telecast, beginning in February.

"When we met with Carrie last year to discuss the Super Bowl open, we each brought ideas," Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of NBC Sunday Night Football and the Super Bowl LII presentation, says. "Carrie presented first. After she spoke, we looked at each other and said, 'That's the one'.

"Later on, our Olympics producers listened to The Champion and decided that it would be a perfect complement for our Winter Games coverage. We are excited to highlight The Champion in two events on the global stage in February."

Diddy still peeved that 'Nipplegate' overshadowed his Super Bowl performance .
Diddy is still peeved that Janet Jackson's infamous 'Nipplegate' wardrobe malfunction completely overshadowed his performance at the Super Bowl. The 48-year-old rapper took to the stage alongside Nelly at the Super Bowl XXXVIII Halftime Show in 2004, with a performance he says took six months to prepare. However, the evening also saw the now world-famous moment when Justin Timberlake performed with Janet and accidentally pulled her top to reveal her nipple pasty beneath. That scandal made headlines worldwide, becoming a topic of conversation for months to come, and Diddy still holds something of a grudge that his own Super Bowl performance went completely under the radar. "First of all, I want to say that I’m still upset about that Super Bowl because I put, like, six months of my life into the preparation. And then nobody even knew I performed," he said during an appearance on U.S. TV show Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night (21Jan18). "Y’all don’t even know I performed at the Super Bowl!" Justin will be returning to the Super Bowl stage for the 4 February Halftime Show, with some rumours suggesting Janet could also be making an appearance during his set. Asked what he thought about those reports, Diddy replied: "I think that would be great. It’s time to move on and I think she’s at a great place and the world just needs to get over it.
