Sunday was just a fun day.

The Husker women’s upset of Iowa had me so pumped. I was not expecting such a great ending, but love seeing the girls come together and show what they can do.

Then the Super Bowl was fun. I rooted for the Chiefs as I was at a Cheifs fan’s house and I have no real NFL allegiance.

I’m a Taylor fan so I loved seeing her, but I also loved Post Malone’s performance. And then there was Usher. While I thought he sound guy did a crappy job, I was a big fan of Usher’s show. To be fair I am in that Millennial demographic that was obviously targeted. But, I also would like to see anyone else try to sing and dance while roller skating. I can’t even stand up straight or turn my head to fast when I’m doing it.

On Sunday night in Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium, Usher hurried through a medley of many of his biggest hits and proved yet again why he's the current King of R&B.

Here are your flakes.
