I can’t recall a Super Bowl where I have l less of an interest in the outcome of the game. I despise both teams, despise the Head Coaches of both teams, and especially the methods both teams choose to employ to circumvent the rules. We all hate Bill Belichick, somewhat because he’s a divisional foes Head Coach, GM and Emperor, and mostly because he’s a liar, and a cheater.
I also hate Pete Carroll, and it’s impossible for me to think of anything but him standing on the sidelines all smug with his hand to his neck pimping the choke sign to our kicker Pete Stoyanovich.
His players have racked up more suspensions, and have taken as many steroids and other PED’s as Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco combined.
BTW – Is this Superbowl Ex-Lax? (XLIX) It is for me . . .
What I do look forward to is the delusional thought that after the SB, the Patriots will be hit with a severe punishment, suspending Palpatine, er Belichick for the entire season as a penalty for cheating. I think as Dolphins fans we all know that’s not going to happen. Justice will not be served against the Patriots, it never is!
After the SB, the next thing as a football fan is all the hoopla regarding the NFL Draft, which, BTW, is no longer in NYC, and will now be in Chicago, April 30 – May 2 in the Auditorium Theater. That will be different. No longer will we see the cretinous NY Jets fans yelling incoherent things before and after every pick. Instead, we might hear shouts of “Ditka!” or “Da Bears!”, or “Mini Ditkas!”. Who knows, it may actually be less entertaining, or it might be an improvement. We’ll find out soon enough, as it’s already January 29th, and April 30 is only 3 months away.
What about our Dolphins? Do we cut Mike Wallace? Hartline? Both? Do we trade back, or do we trade up? Do we take the BPA, or do we take our biggest need? What is our biggest need? O-line? (AGAIN!!!) DT? CB? LB? WR? TE? RB? Depending upon which players are sent packing, it all might change so fast, and new positions may end up clearly being the biggest need.
In any case, I love the draft. Love it! There’s nothing like the promise of infusing potential young talent into your football team. As fans, most of us who really dig into the draft tend to compile our favorites, our “mancrushes” so to speak, and when we don’t get them (As is usually the case), we pout, we are petulant, and we lash out at our know-nothing GM (whoever it may be), and sit in dismay and utter disbelief that the scouting department, comprised of likely 30-50 very qualified people know substantially less than we do, especially since we watch a lot of college ball (not me), or because we read all the scouting reports put out there by amateur draft “experts”, or even the semi qualified draft “experts” like the guys who have been in the NFL for many years like Pat Kirwan, Charlie Casserly, Gil Brandt etc . . . Yeah, we do it every year, and every year we become the “experts”, and not to disparage anyone, because I think some of you guys really do know what you’re talking about, yet still, in comparison to the information that our scouts and personnel professionals have, it pales in comparison.
I hope you all enjoy the big game, maybe win a box pool, hopefully don’t get indigestion, or worse diarrhea. Don’t throw up on your friends couch, don’t throw the remote at the TV when the Patriots or Seahawks win, and bet with your head, not over it.
Maybe some of you can convince your wife that you need a new TV for the big game (amazing how often that one works!) and you can get a hold of a big 70” 4K UltraHD TV. That would be cool. I’d bet in 4K, you can probably see Palpatine, rather than Belichick. I can’t prove that, I don’t have a 4K TV, but if any of you do, and see it, please let me know, and if you can upload it to the site here, that would be even better! Thanks!
Enjoy the Superbowl! GO P, naw, Go S, nah, ahhh, WHO CARES!!!
