As a NY Jets fan we have had our ups and downs — mostly downs! We are used to the Giants being the “Pride of NY Football”.
This year we (the Jets) had a run and made it to the AFC Championship game. Believe it or not, we were one game away from playing in The Super Bowl. It was fun while it lasted. We had no illusions of grandeur. We knew the Colts were the better team.
Once the Jets were out of it, I really did not care who won The Super Bowl. I just hoped for a good game that was worth watching. Colts win? So? Saints win? So?
The concept of rooting for teams in “Sports” is interesting. Why do we root for one team or another, when it’s not “our” team?
I have nothing at stake in this game. No bets. No boxes. No ties to either team.
…. I think back to the week before the AFC Championship. A Giants-fan, season ticket holder, buddy of mine says “it doesn’t matter who wins the AFC Championship, there are no good teams in the AFC anyway. The team coming out of the NFC will destroy the AFC team in The Super Bowl….”
Wow. What a case of sour grapes! Poor baby. The Giants didn’t make the playoffs so put down the AFC and the Jets. Poor baby.
* News Flash * NY Giants Fans — The NY Jets are the best football team in New York. And they’re an AFC team!
Now I know who to root for! I am passionately rooting for the AFC and the Indianapolis Colts!
