Who Am I Rooting For?

Who am I rooting for?

I was born and raised in Philadelphia. Three of the four major sports teams have won championships in my lifetime, all except football. Since the day I was born, which was the year of the very first Superbowl, the Eagles have played in the biggest game in sports twice, and have lost both times.

During this Superbowl, I am not interested in the commercials. I am not interested in the food or drinks. I am not interested in pools or odds. I am not interested anyone’s attire, including my own. During this Superbowl, I am not interested in expressing hate for opposing fans or players; I don't hate any player for being good, I just don't want them to play well when they play my favorite team. I am not interested in debating who’s the better team. Officially and inarguably, the better team is always the team that wins the Superbowl, period.

During this Superbowl, I AM interested in watching a great football game and being unbelievably euphoric about the outcome.
