That time of year – for the NFL’s annual celebration of ritual sports entertainment, the Super Bowl – has once again swiftly arrived. But the NFL and the Super Bowl are about much more than the presentation of scripted entertainment. Both were also covertly designed as socio-political and behavioral conditioning tools while the dramatic excitement of the ‘game’, particularly during the Super Bowl’s half-time extravaganza, itself conceals the unfolding of grand masonic rituals.
But has anyone never considered the derivation of the word entertainment or considered the occult significance of the term “Super Bowl”?
As for the etymology of “entertainment”, the word derives from the juxtaposition of entre (French) which emanates from Latin inter both meaning ‘together, or among’ and Latin tenere, which means ‘to hold’.
Therefore, in a literal sense, entertain means to ‘hold or support together’.
With its dazzling array of dramatically scripted spectacles and its bevy of charismatic stars, the NFL’s quality-controlled product is designed to attract and to completely seize the public’s attentions, long enough to garner massive profits, both for itself and for its business partners in the television production industry and also, of course, for its gaming/booking associates in Las Vegas.
This is why so many of the NFL’s prime time games appear as spectacularly competitive, the final outcomes of which, oftentimes, aren’t decided until the waning seconds of the final quarter. In NFL parlance, this is termed as the maintenance of league “parity”.
More intriguingly still, have any of its rabid fanatical followers never once considered that the NFL – chiefly, for the purpose(s) of increasing profits derived from advertisement and merchandising revenue, and from skyrocketing television ratings – may, from time-to-time, recycle some of its star players (fabricated character schemes portrayed by reliable actors) into new identities? ￼

A deeper investigation into the deceptive methods of operation utilized by the NFL has revealed, the league, throughout its entire history, has been no stranger to the conceptual phenomenon of Post-Modern Reality Simulation. Imagine, too, for a moment, if you will, the throngs of duped fans needlessly expending emotional and financial energy (gambling) on professional sporting spectacles which – much like the WWE – are stage-managed and scripted for maximum entertainment value and, more paramount, to maximize profitable revenues.
Perhaps even more tragically, imagine the crestfallen reaction of those same millions of fanatics, those enticed and smitten by a particular player’s intriguing biographical backstory and his exploits both on and off the field of play, if they were to ever realize their favorite athlete was essentially a highly paid thespian contracted to act under the guise of both a pseudonym and the carefully sculpted image of a fabricated character scheme?
Turns out, in the particular case of the former NFL athlete observed in the first image posted above, not only was his image recycled and repackaged into that of yet another NFL star, Joe Montana, who also played in the Super Bowl, Broadway Joe Namath’s live-action role player – a well-known Hollywood actor – also went on to assume the identity of a once popular persona in the world of pop music entertainment.
