So what can I use to help me root for either of the teams likely to be in the Super Bowl?
Well, if the Patriots win, they will have gone undefeated, 19-0. That means we won't have to hear anymore from those ass-clowns, the surviving '72 Dolphins. Every year, we get several stories about their popping the cork on the champagne once the final undefeated team loses. That's pretty low-class, and I'm tired of seeing these guys.
And speaking of tired, I'm also pretty tired of the Brett Farve deification. Yes, he's a great quarterback. Yes, he's obviously Hall-of-Fame. Yes, he's generally considered a "good guy". But enough is enough with announcers, columnists and commentators slurping this guy. Tony Kornheiser is perhaps the worst - I can hardly stand to watch a Green Bay game because of this very thing. So, if Green Bay somehow beats the Patriots, maybe Farve will go the John Elway route and retire on top. Then I can stop hearing about him for a while.
Of course, if the Giants or Chargers end up winning, I guess I won't have anything to hold onto. Fortunately, neither of those scenarios look very likely.
