The internet exploded after seeing billionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos at the Chiefs-Chargers game.
It shouldn’t have been too shocking since Bezos was present for Amazon Prime’s “Thursday Night Football” debut at Arrowhead Stadium during the Chiefs’ 27-24 win against the Chargers. Amazon Prime has the exclusive rights to TNF. The partnership marks the league’s first all-digital rights agreement.
Goodell and Bezos got plenty of camera time, but not many knew who the woman was that accompanied him to the game.
He was alongside his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez and she is already known around the football world.
Lauren shares a 21-year-old son with Tony Gonzalez, who made his television debut as a studio analyst for Sanchez’s boyfriend Flex Bezos’ new Thursday Night Football.
It’s the beginning of a new age in the NFL with this streaming video deal with Amazon and the league seems to be very excited about what’s to come.
The same thing is likely to happen once DirecTV loses Sunday Ticket.
