So it's Super Bowl Sunday. What used to be a time when our boys would Fight for Old DC is now a parade of teams that keep their draft picks and don't have a carousel of coaches.
So what's a 'Skins fan to do? The Patriots are insufferable and the Giants are threatening to pull ahead of the Redskins' Super Bowl legacy . As our Brother in Blog asked on Twitter today, who should Redskins fans cheer for in this one?
The answer? No one.
This Super Bowl has nothing to do with the Redskins. The Redskins aren't relevant to the playoffs, and the outcome of this game has zero bearing on the team we root for. Twisting around scenarios to determine how the Redskins' legacy is impacted vis a vis a random matchup of teams is an exercise in futility. Because there is no impact. In fact, in the era of free agency, there's a chance that some of the players you may root for or against in today's game may very well be Redskins next year.
So for today's game, forget about how the Redskins are impacted by these two buttwad teams and their jerk fanbases. Covet the pageantry and dream of a day when you, yes you, could blow 5 large to spend a weekend in a crowded Indianapolis during the winter to cheer on our beloved Burgundy Warriors.
If you must choose a team to cheer for, base it on something personal, like how you walked in on your stepdad and your mom roleplaying "Belichick Cuckolds a Square", or that your ex-fiancee is now dating the guido Giants fan that gave you herpes through the transitive property.
My advice? Skip choosing sides, stuff yourself with crimes against nutrition, bet your kid's college fund on random prop bets, and root for career-ending injuries to the star players on each team.
Hate on, haters.
