A B-2 stealth bomber flew over the Rose Bowl Monday night during Oklahoma’s game against Georgia, and the scene was about as American as you can get.
I dare anybody to check this out the photos and videos of the awesome event and tell me they don’t love it.
What could possibly better than football and a stealth bomber? Absolutely nothing.
This is what America is all about. We have the best football on the planet by a billion miles, and we have the best military. We obviously have to combine those two, and they came together perfectly Monday night.
I’ve seen tons of fighter jet fly-bys in my life. They’re awesome. But I’ve also seen a B-2 flyover in person, and it’s way cooler. You can just sense the power in the air as you watch it fly over your head.

Sudan's top football club has been reprimanded after some of its supporters taunted rival fans by erecting banners displaying an image of Adolf Hitler during a bitter championship decider.
Photos of the banner, which was displayed by supporters of al-Hilal Omdurman during the club’s derby match with al-Merrikh on 25 November, made headlines on sports pages in Sudan and were widely shared and condemned on social media, while world football governing body FIFA has told MEE it is seeking more information about the incident.
As well as erecting an image of the leader of Nazi Germany, fans belonging to al-Hilal's Blue Lions ultras group also held aloft letters spelling out the word "Holocaust".
Al-Hilal has said it condemns the fans responsible, although the club also posted video footage of the banners on its official Facebook page.
This is the moment former reality TV star Aaron Chalmers knocked out Karl Donaldson in his third professional MMA fight.

Great Britain has never been great with dealing with the snow.
As soon as a few flakes appear, everyone goes into meltdown as airports are closed, roads are left deserted and people rush to the shops to stock their shelves for the winter hibernation.
But one football match defied all that as they battled through blizzard conditions, refusing to let the white stuff postpone their match, report Wales Online.
When Aberdare hosted Risca at Aberaman Park on Friday night in their Welsh League Division Two clash, you could be forgiven for thinking Christmas had come early as heavy snow hammered down.
But rather than call the match off, the two teams braved the cold conditions and played the full 90 minutes - with Aberdare running out 4-2 winners.
This ref couldn't get out of the way of a hail-mary and gets run the hell over.

Exactly seven months after ESPN cut more than 100 employees, the sports network is making another round of cuts, this one bigger. ESPN is letting go of 150 people beginning on Wednesday, Yahoo Finance has learned.
This is a significantly larger number than initially reported by other outlets in the past few weeks. But it amounts to less than 2% of ESPN’s 8,000 employees.
The last round of cuts, in April, affected almost entirely on-air personalities — people recognizable to television viewers and radio listeners.
This time, none of the people getting cut are on-air talent. Instead, these layoffs will affect behind-the-scenes people in a wide range of departments, particularly studio production, digital content, and technology.
ESPN is looking to cut about $100 million in costs, though that savings will come from a combination of staff cuts and other business changes. A little more than half of the 150 people are based at headquarters in Bristol, Conn.
In a terse memo to ESPN employees posted Wednesday morning, ESPN president John Skipper said that the 150 cuts, “generally reflect decisions to do less in certain instances and re-direct resources.” Skipper, whom ESPN renewed this month through 2021, noted that the laid-off employees will still receive their 2017 bonuses.
Poland’s Samuel Ilnicki and England’s Solomon Rogers both had dreams of MMA stardom as they made their debuts in a welterweight contest at Golden Ticket Fight Promotions.
But less than three minutes into the opening round of their early-card contest, Ilnicki delivered a harsh dose of reality to his opponent with one of the most soul-destroying knockouts you’ll ever see.
The Iranian wrestler was cruising through the match, looking like a sure bet to defeat his Russian opponent. But suddenly, as if suffering an injury, he fell to the mat and was thrown around the ring like a rag doll by the surprised Russian. Finally, the match ended and the referee pronounced the Russian the winner.
But the Iranian wrestler was not injured. As Iranian news outlets reported on Tuesday, he said his real problem was that his coach had told him to throw the match to avoid facing an Israeli opponent in the next round of the tournament.
In Iran’s hard-line ideology, Israel is not recognized as a state, and supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei often refers to the country as “a cancerous tumor.” Iranian athletes are forbidden to compete with Israelis in any sport, and, if necessary, are told to forfeit their matches or to feign sickness.
The wrestler, Alireza Karimi-Machiani, 23, can be seen in blue in the video below, taking on Alikhan Zhabrailov, a Russian, on Saturday at the U23 World Senior Wrestling Championship in Poland. (Begin video at 5:50.)
The Clippers' third win in a row for the first time since opening the season 4-0 came at a price.
Blake Griffin fell down under the basket and clutched his left knee with 3:53 left in a 120-115 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night.
The team said he's day-to-day and will be examined on Tuesday. A grim-faced Griffin dressed and left the locker room without speaking to reporters.
"It didn't look good, obviously," coach Doc Rivers said.
Griffin was going for a loose ball in the paint with teammate Austin Rivers and Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball. It appeared Rivers fell on Griffin, whose knee got twisted as he landed on his back. Griffin got up, but soon left the game and the court.
"Lonzo knocked someone into Blake and it was a trigger effect," the elder Rivers said. "Blake said he was OK. Then he just couldn't move. He's hoping it was just a bang."
The Clippers are already missing three key players, including guard Patrick Beverley, who is out for the season after having right knee surgery last week. Forward Danilo Gallinari and guard Milos Teodosic are hurt, too.
Lou Williams scored a season-high 42 points, helping the Clippers rally from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter to earn their 11th straight home victory against their Staples Center co-tenant.
"He saved us," Rivers said. "We needed every point Lou gave us."
Griffin added 26 points and 11 rebounds.
The elder Rivers and Williams both thought Griffin got fouled on the play.
"The referees acknowledged he got hit," Williams said. "But I guess there were some other things that went on during that play."
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit an open 18-footer that left the Lakers trailing 116-115 with 48 seconds to go.
Williams answered with a layup before Brandon Ingram missed a corner jumper for the Lakers. Williams got fouled and made both, completing a 14 of 14 free throw performance that closed out the game.
"That was a gutty win for us," Rivers said.
Pope led the Lakers with 29 points. Ingram and Jordan Clarkson added 17 points each.
Ball finished with three points on 1 of 7 shooting for the Lakers, who were coming off a four-day break after dropping six of nine games. Ball returned for the game's final five minutes, tossing the ball out of bounds and missing two 3-pointers.
