As part of Sportscasting’s Super Bowl coverage ahead of the showdown between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium, we spoke with several past champions this week, including a pair of Super Bowl MVP winners in Terrell Davis and Hines Ward.

Davis won back-to-back titles with the Broncos in the late 1990s alongside John Elway and earned his MVP trophy following Denver’s first championship. TD carried the ball 30 times in the Broncos’ 31-24 win over the Packers for 157 yards, the fifth-most in history, and three touchdowns.

Ward is also a two-time Super Bowl champ, winning two titles with the Steelers in the 2000s. The four-time Pro Bowler earned his MVP trophy in Pittsburgh’s 21-10 Super Bowl 40 victory over the Seahawks, catching five passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.

We caught up with the pair of former Georgia Bulldogs earlier this week to get their picks for Sunday’s matchup, their respective choices on who will join them as a fellow Super Bowl MVP, and how they’ve teamed up with Tums for some Super Bowl trivia fun.

Sportscasting: So before we dive into a couple questions about Super Bowl 56, tell us what you guys are doing with Tums and how fans can get involved with some trivia this Sunday.

Terrell Davis: We’re extremely excited to be partnering with Tums this year, who knows a lot about the heat of competition. And as players, we always enjoy the heat of competition and we’re looking forward to the matchup this Sunday. Tums is hosting the first-ever Tumsworthy Big Game Trivia is putting fans’ knowledge to the test for the opportunity to win a piece of $88,000.

Hines Ward: And fans can check us out on Tums’ official Twitter account for more details.

Sportscasting: So I’ve got a pair of two-time Super Bowl champions here and both of you have won a Super Bowl MVP. So I’ve gotta get a pick from each of you for the winner of Sunday’s game and your pick for Super Bowl MVP.

Terrell Davis: So I’ll go first on this one. I’m going with the Los Angeles Rams here and I’ve even got a score for you, 27-24. It’ll be a tight one. I think the Bengals will come to play, but they just fall short. And my MVP is going to be Aaron Donald, who has been waiting for this moment for a long time. He was there before, but they didn’t come through, but I think Aaron Donald becomes the MVP with his play on that defensive line.

Hines Ward: Yeah, I agree with TD and I’m going to with the L.A. Rams. But my score is a little different with them being at home. L.A. wins big, 33-21. And, of course, we all know in a big game like the Super Bowl that the game is catered to the quarterback. And our fellow Bulldog, Matthew Stafford, adds to the collection of UGA MVPs, so I’m looking for him to bring home that ring and the MVP honors back to Athens to join Jake Scott, myself, and TD.

Sportscasting: So we’ve obviously got a lot of young guys playing in this Super Bowl, obviously more so on Cincinnati’s side as the Rams have a few guys that played this game a few years back. You guys know this game. You know what a big stage this is, what the atmosphere is like. What can these guys who haven’t been there expect this Sunday when that first whistle blows for the Super Bowl?

Terrell Davis: It’s not a normal game. It’s not. You can convince yourself all you want how it’s a normal game, but it’s not. Everything is different about it. The build — the pace of the game just feels like it is going so fast — or slow, depending if you’re up or down — but it feels like every play matters. It’s like if you have a bad play, it tends to linger. You have to just be able to get past that and don’t just dwell on that one play. Just hang in there. It’s going to be a dogfight, and it’s not going to be easy task for the Bengals.

I played in the game my first time and we were able to win it. We didn’t have the experience of the team we played. They won the championship before the year before and we didn’t have that experience, but we still won that game. So go and do the things that you’ve done to get to this point. Don’t change who you are and don’t change your stripes if you’re the Bengals. Go in there, play free, and maybe you can come out of there with the win.

Hines Ward: And for Cincinnati, they’re the new kids on the block and having a Cinderella season. They only know what they know. They don’t know. They don’t know what they’re supposed to feel like in the Super Bowl. But they go on to beat Tennessee, then to beat Kansas City. You’re coming in there with a lot of confidence. You beat the two best teams in the AFC. So to them, it’s just another game.

Don’t get too overwhelmed with the Super Bowl and try to do too much. Just continue doing what they’re doing and they’ll have a shot at the end to try to pull off the big upset. But for me, it’s all about leaning on your superstars. And Aaron Donald, Von Miller, Jalen Ramsey, OBJ, Cooper Kupp, Matthew Stafford, and company — those guys are on a mission. They’re trying to win it together in L.A., so playing at home gives them a little advantage as well.


We’d certainly like to thank Mr. Davis and Mr. Ward for joining us and also our pals at KEF Media for setting things up. Enjoy Super Bowl 56.

Taylor Swift’s rep responds to reports the singer has the worst private jet carbon emissions



A spokesperson for Taylor Swift has responded to a report that named the singer as the celebrity with the worst private jet CO2 emissions. 

Yesterday, a report released by Yard claimed the American singer was the biggest CO2 polluter of the year so far, having flown in her private jet 170 times since January and totalling 8,294.54 tonnes of CO2.

However, Swift’s spokesperson told Buzzfeed News the statistics are inaccurate.

For context, the report claims the average person produces just seven tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

Taylor Swift speaks onstage during the 36th Annual Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on October 30, 2021 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Swift’s representative said only some of the 170 flights can be attributed to the singer: “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”

Regardless, it is clear Swift’s jet is racking up significant amounts of carbon emissions due to its inefficient use.

According to the Yard report, her average flight time is just 80 minutes, and her jet’s shortest recorded flight flew between Missouri and Nashville for just 36 minutes.

Celebrities react to Roe v. Wade

Other significant celebrity polluters include boxer and domestic violence perpetrator Floyd Mayweather, whose shortest flight was just 10 minutes long but emitted one ton of carbon; Kim Kardashian, who has emitted 609 times more carbon than the average person; and director Steven Spielberg, who took an 18-minute flight between Rotterdam and Amsterdam – a route which, when taken by train, takes only an hour. 

The subject of celebrity carbon emissions has blown up ever since Kylie Jenner shared an out-of-touch photo of her and partner Travis Scott posing in front of their private jets with the caption, “you wanna take mine or yours?”

In the midst of the backlash, many began diving deeper into Jenner’s private jet use by examining the Celebrity Jets Twitter account, which records celebrity private jet trips.

Many were horrified she was regularly taking flights as short as 12 minutes and reprimanded her for “her absolute disregard for the planet”.

Many found it hypocritical that ordinary people were being asked by big companies to reduce their car trips and use paper straws when celebrities are constantly leaving huge carbon footprints with frivolous trips in their private jets.

Despite the wave of criticism, celebrities have continued to take private flights between short distances.

How to Make Sense of a Very Unpredictable Fall Movie Season




All of a sudden, the fall movie season looks very busy. This week brought two big festival announcements loaded with major films to come: First came Venice, with a lineup that includes everything from Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale” to “Bardo”; it was followed by TIFF, where Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” will premiere alongside Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light” and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking,” among many others. Meanwhile, Telluride continues to shroud its selections in secret, but the latest lineups help us get a sense of what to expect there as well.

In this week’s episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson dig through both lineups to get a sense for which films could impact the coming awards season and why it’s almost certain to be an unpredictable ride. They also address the return of competitiveness between festivals that seemed to subside earlier in the pandemic, and touch on the recent changes to the Oscar submission rules in France.

Watch the full episode above or listen it below. 

Screen Talk is produced by Azwan Badruzaman and available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify, and hosted by Megaphone. Browse previous installments here, subscribe here, and be sure to let us know if you’d like to hear the hosts address specific issues in upcoming editions of Screen Talk.
