Jack and I wanted the Patriots to win. I’m from MA and the Patriots are my team. Even though I rooted for the Raiders my entire life because they had “cool” black and silver uniforms.
Also my first Super Bowl (well, the first I paid attention to) was XV, Raiders vs. Eagles. The Raiders killed the Eagles 27-10 and I was always so happy about the Eagles losing. And Jim Plunkett.
So this year, I’m kinda going back to my roots as a Masshole, and a hater of Philly. Hater for no other reason than me remembering what it felt like to be 13 and rooting for a winning team.
We were sad to see the Patriots lose. It was another good game and we were hoping for the same ending as last year. Woulda been great Tom!
me: Jack, what are you doing up there… bedtime!
Jack: Drowning my sorrows…
He was upset that the Patriots lost, and apparently there are a lot of rude Philly fans in 8th grade.
Jack: They’re all gonna be so obnoxious tomorrow. Sigh.
me: Ignore then.
Jack: You’ve obviously never been in 8th grade.
