I Dont Cope, I Justify


Unlike some Eagles fans who cannot and will not root for any other team, especially one in the NFC East, I found peace in justification. There is just too much depression, anger, and frustration attached to coping. I just cant do it.

However, what I had done prior to the Superbowl, just to make it bearable, I had to find a reason to root for one rather than the other. Most often, it comes down to who do I dislike more, or who has wronged me most. With this in mind, I easily picked and rooted for the Giants. The way I see it:

We beat the Giants 7 out of the past 8 times. We humiliated them on not only one occasion but a second time with the part two of Miracle at the Meadowlands. I honestly think they have more of a reason to hate us, than we do them. I have some Giants friends that are actually OK to hang with. (Its the DAMN arrogant Cowboys fans I really don't like.)

The Patriots, on the other hand, have had enough of the limelight in my opinion. Really starting to piss me off like the Yankees. Tom Brady seems to be the Man! Supermodel wife! HUGE mansion! Just about every NFL record! an almost perfect season! and too many super bowls! Furthermore, this is a game of competition. If you cant compete, you deserve to lose! Dont cheat! And if you do, and get caught, you should be forever banned from the sport - NFL, CFL, etc. To deprive a team like the Eagles who have never won the Superbowl(not that I am looking for pity from them) of the success they deserved, is despicable, immoral, and COMPLETELY UNFORGIVABLE! I will never - EVER - root for the Patriots (even if it was against the Cowboys - I don't know, maybe I would just boycott the Superbowl altogether in that case)! Furthermore, the President of the United States should strip the New England team of their PATRIOT name after cheating. (Yes, Im that bitter!)

Ergo, I am completely OK with the Giants winning the Superbowl - in our absence. I take GREAT SATISFACTION in the failures of Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the entire Patriot organization.
