During the presser, Rahm disclosed how he would not be “doing any events outside,” owing to the LIV Golf event that they are competing in. “It’s a little hard to do,” said the pro before continuing, “If anything, it would be Saturday night,” while alluding to the only free time they would get after the tournament before Sunday when they would be going back. But even so, he made sure to point out how “it’s going to be complicated to move around Vegas on the weekend.” 

He dubbed it a “hard guess” to see who would win before going ahead to praise Patrick Mahomes. The Spaniard then made a complete U-turn to express his support for Brock Purdy. The reason? “Just because he’s an Arizona guy,” said the 2023 Masters Tournament champ before continuing, “and for almost how overlooked it seems like he’s been his whole career.” Moreover, he predicted how the San Francisco 49ers “have a really good chance of possibly getting it done” while mentioning how it would be “an amazing ending to this year.”

Well, there was just one other teammate from Legion XIII who supported Rahm’s prediction; none other than Kieran Vincent. He went ahead to say, “I think the whole Brock Purdy story makes you draw to the 49ers a little bit… So I think I have a bit more of my chips on that side.” Nevertheless, both were extremely sure it was going to be a “great game.”

However, not everyone from the team shared the same opinion. Don’t get it wrong. It’s not as if the other two did not want the 49ers to win at all, but they were not that involved in the whole Super Bowl storyline.

What about Caleb Surratt? “I don’t know the first thing of what’s going on,” said the 19-year-old athlete when asked about his Super Bowl plans before going ahead to hilariously express his doubts on whether he would even be able to get in. It seems the young golfer is also just like Hatton when it comes to the NFL. No matter, since the team just has to focus on emerging victorious at the upcoming event in Las Vegas. Many would be eagerly awaiting the same.
