SUPER BOWL….Patriots vs. Eagles, eh? That’s an All-American Super Bowl, isn’t it? And as Matt notes, it’s also an all-blue-state Super Bowl, surely an important consideration in these partisan times.
So who to root for? I used to travel to Tyngsboro, Massachusetts, all the time to visit one of our engineering sites, and thus developed a slight loyalty to the Pats (Los Angeles not having a pro football team, of course). On the other hand, Bostonians will become insufferable if they win both the World Series and the Super Bowl. So in the end, I guess I don’t care. In fact, that’s pretty much how it’s turned out every year since the evil Georgia Frontiere stole the Rams from us and absconded to St. Louis. Unless I can root against the Rams, it just doesn’t matter.
