Midway through the third quarter of Sunday’s Super Bowl in Houston, the Falcons led the Patriots 28-3 and had a greater than 99 percent chance of winning their first championship. President Trump, a Patriots fan, left his Super Bowl party early, and people made jokes about how happy NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell must have been, knowing that he wouldn’t have to hand the Lombardi Trophy to his Deflategate nemesis, Tom Brady.

By the end of the night, Brady had orchestrated the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history, lifting the Patriots to a 34-28 win that was capped by a two-yard touchdown pitch to James White in overtime. As Goodell presented New England with the Lombardi Trophy, the joke was on everyone who had counted the Patriots out. Throughout New England’s incredible comeback, many people, including Bill Maher, Donald Trump Jr. and Michael Moore, made comparisons to Election Night and, of course, the prognostications at the time that Hillary Clinton would win. (The Goodell jokes from earlier were infinitely better.)
