It wasn’t the Russian interference in the election or the presidential election itself. It was not the tax cuts or Hurricanes Maria or Harvey. However, with today’s Super Bowl fans appear united in rooting against the New England Patriots. A combination of past scandals and, let’s face it, dominion in the league, most fans appear to be tuning in to root against the Patriots as opposed to for the Eagles. For my part, I am in it for the good football despite the terrible omission of the greatest football legacy on Earth . . . the Chicago Bears. The good thing is that I can watch Alshon Jeffery catch balls and cheer for the appearance of at least on Bear in the Super Bowl this year.
According to a survey from Monmouth University, only 16 percent of fans are rooting for the Patriots while 39 percent are actively rooting against the Patriots.
I am making a new slow-cooked chili this year. I prepared guajillo, ancho, and pasilla chiles and pureed them for a beef chili made with a beer and prayer. This will either be a collossal flop or my greatest moment.
As for the game, I have had serious doubts about watching this year. I find the NFL to be one of the truly more repugnant organizations in the country and the reappointment of Roger Goodell was the ultimate one-finger salute to fans who despise him with an unprecedented passion.
This is a case of fans trying hard to forget the conduct of the owners, the commissioner, and many players to just watch the game. I will admit that I also love to watch the commercials.
