Kobe Bryant is expected to be remembered during this year's Super Bowl. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the announcement to reporters on Wednesday, saying this:
"I'm proud of… the way our players, the way our league, responded [on Sunday, after the accident] -- including a moment of silence during the game, with Kobe's picture up -- and the way our fans responded. And we did that again on Monday night. We as a league have been very responsive, and I think respectful, of somebody who contributed so much to sports."
Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and 7 others died this past weekend in a helicopter crash. The news crippled social media, and had sports fans and (non sports fans) heartbroken.
My Two Cents
Kobe Bryant's legacy transcends all facets of sports. His contributions to sports is highly respected and will always live on. I think it is a beautiful thing that he will be recognized at this year's Super Bowl.
Kobe, we miss you!
