A stock can't be overvalued or undervalued. By definition, a stock's value comes from what people think something is worth. TSLA is $200 because people believe it's worth $200, we've in January it was $400 because people believed it was worth $400.

In a way you are right, but this is a similar argument as you could make about tulip mania, at a certain point a tulip bulb might have been worth 2500 florins because that's what you might have paid for it and could possibly sell it for but does that mean it really was that value? when we look at it historically it would have been very foolish to buy it for that much, when its 'real' value was closer to maybe 20 florins.

Nah. The Superbowl yes has tons of ads but no the regular season isn't all about the ads. In fact the majority of major league games run on sponsors, ads, and ticket sales. It used to be that players got a mix of contract money and player shares of revenue. The contract has become the dominant way for players to make money aside from personal sponsorships that essentially attach a player to a brand. Anyways how American football is organized from it's rules and it's time per quarter to rules on the field came from over 150 years of development from 19th century football and rugby.
