The Kansas City Chiefs are on top of the Super Bowl mountain for the second straight year but this year's championship felt different. No, it wasn't because the win cemented the Chiefs as the dynasty of the 2020s but it felt different because the Super Bowl also aired on Nickelodeon. A moment we'll all remember forever will be documented not only by the legendary Jim Nantz but by a cartoon sponge and starfish as well.
Super Bowl LVIII marked the first time that the big game aired on Nickelodeon in an effort to teach children more about the sport we all love so much. Fans might have caught the Chiefs playing on Nickelodeon on Christmas Day when they got trounced by the Raiders and if you say you didn't watch even a snippet of that game on Nick, you're probably lying.
Anyway, even though the game went to overtime, the Nickelodeon crew stayed with the action, delivering an iconic call of the game-winning touchdown.
Those who didn't watch the Super Bowl on Nickelodeon were missing out.
The call starts with Noah Eagle announcing there's eight seconds left in overtime and then we see that legendary play of Patrick Mahomes finding a wide-open Mecole Hardman to win the Chiefs' third Super Bowl in five years. Patrick Star (the other iconic Patrick) then screams "TOUCHDOWN TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL!" with SpongeBob then joins in with "TOUCHDOWN!" over and over.
After that, the slime cannons start going off in the end zone, soaking all of the players. A Super Bowl victory and some slime, you just can't beat that.
You won't get this kind of analysis anywhere else, folks. Nickelodeon for the win.
