G'damn! ****** playoffs so far for any team I'm even remotely rooting for. My Rams got waxed. My wife's Packers got spanked. Chargers choked. And the Colts got beeotched. That leaves... the Steelers!
By all means, root for the patriots then.
Sorry I jinxed your boys there, Jess...
Couple more crappy, uncompetitive games yesterday. Playoffs this year have been a snore. As much as I despise the Pats (since they won their first Super Bowl after technically losing to the Raiders two games prior in the "Snow Job" game), I'm really rather starting to respect them and their coach. They aren't the typical fancy, big name, showboating team of superstar players that so many others are in this league. They just go out and get it done every week. Man, they're tough. Just no way I see the Eagles cracking that, and pulling out a W in a couple of weeks. The Pats are very much like the Spurs in the NBA, IMO. Dominant. Winners. Champions. But just not too terribly exciting, so a lot of folks don't get to overly thrilled for them when they win. But I'm digging Brady more and more, especially when he's got that cool beard and doesn't look like some pretty boy surfer kid from SoCal. Looks more like a football player now!
I could stomach an Eagles win, as long as T.O. doesn't get in the game. He's fun and amusing to watch, but he's a serious idiot too, so I'd rather not see him get any "Champion" type of recognition. I think it would eat him alive if they won it all without him in the lineup.
Either way, this is a Superbowl I'm not terribly interested in. But there are some serious stakes on the line, namely winning #3 and getting that "Dynasty" tag for the Pats. Most likely gonna happen.
I'll mostly be looking forward to the beer, snacks, and commercials!
