LeBron James is a big football fan, but he won’t be able to watch Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday. The Heat play the Toronto Raptors north of the border at 2 p.m. on gameday, and afterward the team will immediately board a plane and fly back to Miami to prepare for another game on Monday. Apparently the Miami Heat’s chartered jet doesn’t have satellite television, and LeBron whined earlier this week that he’ll be forced to miss the Super Bowl.
2. To reiterate: A professional athlete will miss watching the Super Bowl because he’ll be aboard a private jet. LeBron’s actual quote about the situation:
- U.S. presidential candidates are making their final pitches before the New Hampshire primary, the second voting contest of the nominating season 🇺🇸
- At least 9 people are dead and 150 others injured after two trains collided in Bavaria, Germany, local police say.
- The Pentagon has confirmed that North Korea successfully launched a satellite into orbit on Sunday night.
