I live in a tiny town in a state with two outstanding football teams. My favorite team beat BOTH teams that are in the superbowl today. So while my heros (Tommy, Ben, Bettis, etc) are watching from home, the state’s OTHER team will be playing for teh vince lombardi trophy. I”ll be rooting for the Pats.
THere’s not much to celebrate in this tiny town, but as I walked around the neighborhood, along the river and past snowy playgrounds, I saw folks driving around in silly Eagles helmets, jerseys, backyard barb-b-qs, and general mirth. So even though I’m rooting for the out of state team, I’ll still be happy for all the eagles fans in my town if they win.
