Top 10 Reasons You Should Root for New England This Weekend

33 posts in this topic

10. When Indy comes to Foxboro, we acknowledge that you are the "Indianapolis Colts." Baltimore? Nope. "Indianapolis Football Team."

 

9. It's been almost two years since the Bruins won the Stanley Cup. We're starved for a championship!

 

8. Tom Brady will send all of you a pair of Uggs.

 

7. The Patriots need to advance so that Mayor Menino can continue to butcher names. (http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/boston-mayor-thomas-menino-flubs-names-patriots-vince-164337514--nfl.html)

 

6. The Ravens advancing to the Super Bowl is a sign of the apocalypse, right there in the book of Revelations, before the four horsemen and after the plague of locusts.

 

5. No one wants to see another Gisele rant... right?

 

4. We're not the Chargers.

 

3. If you hate him, maybe another SB win will bring us that much closer to Belichick's retirement.

 

2. You can always root for the NFC team if they win and make it to the SB.

 

And the #1 reason...

 

1. Peyton would have wanted it that way!

 

 

 

I'm probably offline until after the weekend, so... enjoy the games everyone. Peace and prosperity to you and yours!

The #2 option sounds fine and it did work the last 2 times but why wait for another 2 weeks?

#4 is the only one I think I can agree with, but #8 kind of makes me want them to lose more. :)

That sounds like something Belichek would do to the Raven's locker room before the game in order to gain an advantage.

I respect the Patriots, I take nothing away from them, they are an excellent team, but I don't like them. They are like the end boss in a video game to me!

I actually will be rooting for NE if the Falcons win, because I know they are the one AFC team that would totally destroy them.

Peyton called me and said he did NOT want it that way.  And he said if you guys win, he and Papa John are taking back all of their 2 million pizzas.

How in Hades can you be wearing Vince Wilfork's jersey #75 & murder the name?  haha  :lol: Who is this Gonk player you speak of?  :facepalm:  Gronk...Pronounce the R please. Thank you.

Everytime I see a supermodel strut her stuff on the cat walk, I start rooting for the ground. Thud...Sick & twisted I know, but still hilarious IMO. :funny::spit:

Bill Belichick never gets enough credit for his incredible work in Cleveland. He would have delivered a Championship to the Browns dog pound too. Jim Brown knows it, all of Patriots Nation knows it, I know it, & Art Modell should have known better...Sigh....

6. The Ravens advancing to the Super Bowl is a sign of the apocalypse, right there in the book of Revelations, before the four horsemen and after the plague of locusts.

 

Locust: "A multitude of grasshoppers that swarm & devour vegetation & crops in a warm climate or region." Kind of like what running backs Woodhead & Ridley will do to wear out the Ravens defense in the 4th Qtr.

 

Grasshoppers are associated with an ancient insect symbol of the Far East & the Orient to symbolize wisdom & intellectual knowledge. Similar to Bill Belichick's brilliant defensive mind & a Russian Chess master of strategy.

"1. Peyton would have wanted it that way!" Cute, yes I have a sense of humor.  :funny:  lmao

 

I've been really critical of Peyton Manning lately. Chalk it up to tough love, but I don't kick Yoda when he is down...Like in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, Yoda is merely retreating, regrouping for next season. [Yes, SW1 is a huge Star Wars nerd. I will admit ithaha ] Peyton needs to get more aggressive & develop a pitbull fight mentality. Put your foes down in the post season #18.

Well...he is from Bahstin where they talk like sissy pirates. I love it when Bostonians say "Law"..... as in "Lar"

"2. You can always root for the NFC team if they win and make it to the SB."

 

This one is tough for me because I like both Tony Gonsalez & Randy Moss. My money is on the Patriots to win it all, but if an NFC team does pull it off I want the Randy Moss to win a ring.

When it comes to hockey, I'm dumber than a post or the puck used to play the game. Besides, their union just recently came off a strike & went back to work. Be patient GoPats...Just Kidding man!!!

#'s 8, 5 and 3 made me laugh out loud. As a Pats fan though I must say wouldn't the biggest reason you want the Pats to win is because the Ravens beat you? I know that would fuel me.

 

Can I also just say this too. The Colts are unbelievably more likeable with Andrew Luck and Pagano. I found myself voting for them all season except when they played the Pats of course. The Green Bay game and the second Houston game were the best regular season games of the year in my opinion. Also, do you guys think the Colts can overtake Houston next year for the division?

Harbaugh called and was wondering if he regretted not going to S.F. yet.

    • Woman has to know her place....
    • As far as I know, Eminem is the only rapper to list his favorite rappers in a song.   His top rappers are:   1.  Reggie  (His uncle) 2.  Jay-Z 3. Tupac 4.  Biggie 5.  Andre 3000 6.  Jada 7.  Kurupt 8.  Nas 9.  Eminem   Being last does not offend him, he made the list.   Either way, the spirit of God lives in us.
    • Very sad... He was a part of so many amazing tunes.   
    • I don't like anything about Frank Sinatra, tbh.    His music was before my time, but I enjoy a lot of other music and film from that era. I'm from the Midwest and it's hard for me to relate to those songs. They all seem to have a New York/Vegas feel to them (and not in a good, Sonic Youth way). A lot of it seems... insincere, for lack of a better word. I kind of compare it to today's teen bop bubble gum type music where the personality and public persona and "coolness" factor of the artist are as important as the actual music. However, like I said, I wasn't alive at the time to know whether that is the case or not.   Maybe I just don't get it (like many people don't get rap or jazz) but what Sinatra did doesn't sound like singing to me. He didn't seem to have any vocal range. He didn't play instruments (that I know of) or dance. It's really bewildering to me that he is such a cultural icon.    His persona is grating, to me. I never like performers whose image is rich/smooth/connected. Just not my cup of tea.    It also seems to me that Sinatra wasn't that great of a guy, either. I know that there is a culture gap between his generation and mine, so I won't judge him too harshly about what his social views were w/ regard to race and gender equality, but his coziness with organized crime figures ( ie murderers) is troubling.   All of this is just my opinion, of course. I'm not a Frank Sinatra expert, by any means. He just appears, to me, as the antithesis of everything that I enjoy about art.   He's on my short list (along with Gene Simmons, Andy Warhol, L. Ron Hubbard, Ronald Reagan) of sainted cultural icons who didn't actually contribute anything of value to their respective fields. Again, jmo... your definition of value might differ from mine. 
    • Not to mean this in an argumentative way but the changes in the Colts winning ways was started by Harbaugh. We were one play from reaching the super bowl against the Steelers. Take away the illegal TD that Stewart caught and that game may have had a different turn out.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
