Rams WR Brandin Cooks Surprises Facility Employee With Super Bowl Tickets

Rams WR Brandin Cooks Surprises Facility Employee With Super Bowl Tickets

We've seen so much of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in the Super Bowl since the last time they faced the Rams in 2002, so I thought I'd put together a Patriots Super Bowl quiz about their previous eight Super Bowls. It appears there's some New England Patriots fatigue going on.

According to a report by USA Today, Cooks handed Alfonso Garcia two Super Bowl tickets before the team boarded a flight to Atlanta last week.

Garcia was called into the office of Rams general manager Les Snead, where Cooks was waiting to deliver the gift in person.

It's become a yearly tradition for the latest Madden game to predict the results of the Super Bowl.

When asked about the reasons that prompted him to help out Garcia, the Rams receiver said the day porter was a "special soul" and wanted to give him the chance what could be a historic night for the franchise.




Cook, who works at the L.A. Memorial Stadium, always keeps the facility "in tip top shape" for the footballers.

"If all of the workers who watch the Super Bowl spend just one hour of their workday discussing the game or come in one hour late, the productivity losses could hit $1.7 billion", said Andrew Challenger, vice president of the Chicago-based executive coaching firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas.

The New England Patriots are playing the Los Angeles Rams in the 2019 Super Bowl.

Twitter map shows which team each state is rooting for in Super Bowl LIII.

Garcia's son, Joshua, told CBS Los Angeles that, "I'm really excited to go to the Super Bowl". "From the bottom of my heart, I thank you".
