      WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden said the Kansas City Chiefs are building a dynasty as he welcomed them on Monday to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

        DALLAS — The Southeastern Conference’s allegedly temporary resolution this week of what Kirby Smart called “the most overrated conversation there ever was” might lend credence to the Georgia coach’s assertion at that. The SEC will stick to eight conference football games and a November puff pastry after all. And if you don’t like it, Georgia or Alabama will meet you in a stadium in January. ...
