Well, well, well. It’s Super Bowl Sunday this weekend, the biggest game of the year, seen by over a Billion people worldwide. It’s the culmination of yet another EPIC NFL season, and one of the most storied franchises enriched in football tradition. The San Francisco 49ers are going for a league high sixth Vince Lombardi trophy, while the Ravens look to bring home numero dos for their DIE HARD fans in Baltimore.
Super Bowl Sunday is the exclamation point to a season of surprises (Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck,Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick); scintillating performances (Adrian Peterson, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady); disappointments (Philadelphia Eagles and of course our very own Carolina Panthers); and unexpected moments (Ravens coming back in the 4th quarter to eliminate Denver in the playoffs). It is also an unofficial American holiday that brings out the WORST type of patrons and viewers, “FAIR-WEATHER FANS”!
MEMO TO ALL “FAIR-WEATHER FANS”: If you’ve never heard of Ray Nitschke, DON’T WATCH! If you think the “Steel Curtain” is a reference to a jail cell, DON’T WATCH! If you are someone who watches the Big Game to see all the new, cool commercials, DON’T WATCH!
“FAIR-WEATHER FANS” are the type of followers and conformists who go whatever way the wind blows. They were wearing Von Dutch hats back in ’03 because EVERYONE ELSE did. They think fake reality TV show people (Rock of Love skanks and Snookie from “The Jersey Shore”) are REAL celebrities. And rest assured, they will be the same “JABRONIS” attending Super Bowl parties because it’s a social networking event, not to watch Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick.
FINAL MEMO TO EVERY AND ALL “FAIR-WEATHER FANS”: If you’ve never heard of Bill Walsh, Johnny Unitas, John or Jim Harbaugh; PLEEEEEASE, DON’T WATCH!!!
