Super Bowl Sunday was a great day for Langley fans, many of whom were celebrating the end of pandemic restrictions that meant they could go out and watch the Kansas City Chiefs play the Philadelphia Eagles on big-screen televisions with other fans close by.
At the packed-to-the-rafters Match Eatery and Public House in Langley City, general manager Sean Palmer described it as “our first post-COVID, real Super Bowl party.”
Palmer said the place was fully booked, with a little room left for last-minute walk-ins.
For one family from Willowbrook, dad, Kevin, mom, Kim, and son, Ashton, it was a welcome outing.
“We’re looking forward to getting out of the house and watch the game,” Kevin told the Langley Advance Times.
Chris Shields came in from White Rock to celebrate his 58th birthday and watch the game with a group of friends from Langley, White Rock, and North Delta.
Sheilds was rooting for the Chiefs, explaining that he’d paced an over-under bet with the B.C. Lotteries Playnow.com betting site.
“I would like to see [Chiefs QB] Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs win,” Shields said.
“I’m hoping for a high-scoring game.”
At another table, four friends from Langley, Chris, Jeff, Bruce, and Dan were raised their glasses in salute as the pre-game show got underway.
Jeff was rooting for the Eagles.
“I’m a Philly fan,” he said.
Sadly, he would be disappointed, as the Chiefs pulled off a 38-35 win.

Mahomes limped off the field after aggravating a right ankle injury just before halftime, but returned to lead Kansas City to its second Super Bowl win in four years.
