Bryce Harper meets Steph Curry at the Super Bowl


Bryce Harper meets Steph Curry at the Super Bowl

There was a lot of star power on the field for Super Bowl 50, but there was a lot of star power off of it as well including two of the best players in other sports.

Bryce Harper may be the best player in baseball and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors may be the best player in basketball. On Sunday, the two got to meet at the Super Bowl.

Thank you to @gatorade for an amazing time once again at the SuperBowl! Gotta say this was one of my favorite moments..As an athlete you respect the craft of other players, professionals! and this guy does it right every single day. It was a pleasure meeting the NBA MVP and fellow @underarmour athlete @stephencurry30! #Goat

Curry was there to support his Carolina Panthers and pound the "Keep Pounding" drum prior to the game. Harper, the noted Dallas Cowboy fan, is seen wearing a Washington Redskins hat.

Curry with Harper together watch Cam Newton and Peyton Manning. That's a lot of star power.

Adrian Peterson's impressive day vs. the Panthers wasn't exactly supposed to happen

Adrian Peterson's impressive day vs. the Panthers wasn't exactly supposed to happen

When you don't hear from someone you wanted to hear from, you typically follow up.

But on Sunday during the Redskins' 23-17 win over the Panthers, Jay Gruden actually didn't follow up with Adrian Peterson about a plan the two first discussed leading up to kickoff.

Everyone associated with burgundy and gold should be OK with that, however, after seeing how things played out.

During his weekly, exclusive interview with JP Finlay on the Redskins Talk podcast, Gruden explained how Peterson's injury situation almost prevented the running back from posting his crucial 17-carry, 97-yard stat line. 

"I talked to him before the game, had a sit-down with him," the head coach said. "I told him I was probably only gonna use him on short-yardage and goal line if that, you know? Because I want him to heal, we have a long season ahead of us." 

Heading into Week 6, Peterson was dealing with shoulder, ankle and knee issues. Plus, he's 33 years old at a position where that number is way more common on a player's jersey than in his bio under "age."

So, Gruden's concern made some sense, especially considering how necessary a productive Peterson has been to the 'Skins' success in 2018. Problem is, the two never connected again, so the coach's pitch count was never executed.

"He says, 'Oh, just let me go early, I'll let you know how I'm doing,'" Gruden recalled. "We let him go early and I never heard from him so I just kept him in there. He played great. He's a pro, he's a stud."

For those of you now wondering if this means you should start ignoring emails from your boss or not text your buddy back and still expect success, let's not get too carried away here. In this instance, a lack of communication worked for the future Hall of Famer, but that doesn't mean it's going to work for you.
