It is 5 am and the remnants of a hurricane are trying to tear the side off of the house…
So, it is Sunday morning.
Later today the Colts will play the Patriots.
I know that many of you start skimming (at best) as soon as I mention sports, but I promise this will be short. And it is important.
You see, this is more than a football game.
This is the classic battle of Good vs. Evil.
It’s really quite that simple.
Let’s compare, shall we:
Colts QB Peyton Manning: Married man. Great role model for kids.
Patriots QB Tom Brady: Knocking up broads all over the east coast. (Clearly “double coverage” is strictly a football term for this dude.)
Colts WR Marvin Harrison: Humble, quiet, unassuming star. One of the all-time greats.
Patriots WR Randy Moss: Once hit a meter maid with his car.
Colts Franchise: Places as much importance on character and what people do off the field as they do on game day.
Patriots Franchise: Videotaped opponents side line signs for years in order to gain an unfair, and illegal, advantage.
Colts Coach Tony Dungy: Highly respected, man of God, quiet strength, pure class.
Patriots Coach Bill Belichick: Biggest prick on earth.
I don’t want to be overly dramatic here…
But, cheering for the Patriots is like watching WWII and rooting for the Nazis because you admire the way they do business.
I’m just sayin’.
I should warn you all that if the evil Patriots win today, I am going to be in a sour mood. And it could last.
I’m not just going to be cranky, I am going to be mad.
So, if you see me on the street, or google talk, you might want to cut a wide berth.
I already told my cousin in Boston that I don’t want to hear from her at all today.
And for even longer should her team win.
She said, “Likewise, dude.”
It’s a good thing we don’t take sports seriously in my family.
