Earlier today I was reminiscing about the 2004 election between John Kerry and George Bush when I realized that this weekend’s Superbowl is perfectly analogous to that election. Yes we have the New England Patriots, going for their fourth NFL championship in the past 7 years, and the New York Giants hoping to not be embarrassed. Who do you root for? Boston or New York fans? Eli Manning or Tom Brady? Tom Coughlin or Bill Belichick? Might as well be Hitler or Bin Laden.
As much as I hate to do it – I just can’t stand seeing Boston win another championship. Maybe if their fans weren’t such assholes, or if their coach wasn’t so damn smug, or their QB so damn good – I could sit back and enjoy history in the making. As it is, this lifelong Philadelphia Eagle fan, and therefore a lifelong hater of anything having to do with the New York Giants must root for them this weekend.
What else can I do?
