Little Big Town’s Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet are looking forward to Sunday’s Super Bowl, which pits the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Fransisco 49ers.

Jimi told us, “This game is gonna be fun. Of course, my team is the Tennessee Titans, so I don’t have quite the heart connection that I do with these two teams. But I’m excited because I think it’s gonna be a great game. They match up very interestingly, and I think it’s gonna be fun to watch. I don’t think anybody’s gonna stop Mahomes, though. The 49er defense, they are for real.”

Phillip adds, “If you can pick apart the 49er defense, you can win this game.”

Meanwhile, LBT’s Karen Fairchild looks back on her own fairly dangerous football days on the field. Karen told us, “I was the quarterback to my powderpuff team. I was running the ball and I came around the corner – this was in high school – and a foreign exchange student, I think her name was Inga, and I didn’t want to fumble ‘cause my brother and my dad were there, and I come from this very athletic family, so I held onto the ball.”

She continues, “I knew I was going to go down, so I let my head hit first and I bit all the way through, but I didn’t fumble and I had a hole in my face, though. The sad thing is that it was just flag football, but I left my flags on and cleats and everything, ‘cause it looked cool, and I had blood running all down my jersey. I went to the emergency room like that, and they sewed up my lip.”
