It’s no secret that February is one of the biggest months for American sports. We have the highly anticipated Daytona 500 kicking off the 2024 NASCAR Cup Season on February 18th, but all eyes this weekend were on the San Franciso 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs for the Super Bowl. After all, Kyle Larson’s 49ers made a heroic comeback to make it to the Super Bowl. But while that ship may have sunk after the Chiefs crushed the 49ers in an overtime thriller that left Larson heartbroken, Ryan Blaney was having the time of his life during the halftime show. However, to his best friend, Bubba Wallace what took precedence was not Ryan Blaney’s excitement but a small error in his praises.

From rumors of Justin Bieber joining his mentor and R&B legend Usher on stage during the halftime show to the unexpected shock of seeing Will.I.Am and Lil Jon slide out onto the stage on roller skates, the 2024 edition of the renowned performance created some memorable and iconic moments. Not only did we get to witness a surprise performance from Alicia Keys, but Ludacris also appeared to seal out a star-studded half-time show.

While Usher’s vocals were immaculate as ever, what stood out to Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney was the shenanigans on rollerblades. After all, we almost witnessed Usher tumble and fall twice, but the athletic singer managed to maintain his balance and smoothly transition into the rest of the choreography. It’s safe to say the show was a massive hit with the viewers, a thought echoed by Blaney’s X post.

However, his praise for the Super Bowl came at his own expense! In an attempt to share his excitement at the halftime show the Super Bowl had put up, Blaney made an auto-correct error that gave his best friend, Bubba Wallace, the perfect opportunity to roast him. The Penske star stated, “Roller blades, Lil John and Luda got this halftime show ROLLING now.” He soon corrected his mistake; “My apologies. JON. Damn you auto-correct.” but Wallace wasn’t going to let the opportunity slide to call Blaney “uncultured”.

While we’re still waiting for the official Cup Series action to kick off, it was certainly refreshing to see Bubba Wallace and Ryan Blaney return to their old ways of pulling each other’s leg at every chance. On the other hand, as great as it is to see NASCAR drivers watching the Super Bowl and enjoying it, did you know there is one NFL player who dominated both motorsports and NFL?

From the Netflix Cup that paired up Formula 1 stars with PGA Tour golfers to Ryan Blaney’s visit to WWE, it’s been quite a treat for fans to witness sport crossovers, which are all the rage nowadays. But while these crossovers are limited to media campaigns, there was one NFL player who not only won back-to-back Super Bowls with the 49ers but also won a NASCAR race at the end of his football career. That man is, of course, Mike Cofer.

Cofer had a solid start to his full-time NFL career after he helped the New Orleans Saints secure 2nd in the NFC West Division right behind his future team, the 49ers. Fast-forward to 1988, and the kicker helped the 49ers secure back-to-back Super Bowl victories before his career dropped off until he retired in 1995 with the Indianapolis Colts. A few years before his retirement, Cofer also stepped into the world of stock car racing. In 1993, the kicker debuted in the NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Tour, but an oil pump ended his hopes of a solid start.

Still, the next season would prove to be the one that saw Cofer bring in his first career win for JMC Enterprises after leading all 100 laps at the Stockton 99 Speedway. Adding to that achievement, Cofer also brought in two more poles and the Rookie of the Year award that season with a fifth-place finish in the final standings.
