Default Re: Can I root for the Ravens on Sunday

I look at it this way. Both teams are overrated. The Steelers, when running on all cylinders, are better than either. So how do you decide what's best for the Steelers? (I already made my TRUE wishes clear...a pestilence of Ebola on both Godforsaken teams, but that's not realistic).

I'm going to say pull for the Rats. Why? Because we play them twice, so we can set them back two games all by ourselves (and hand them two conference AND divisional losses). I think both teams are in for their fair share of L's this year, and we have no control over NE since we don't play them. It makes me vomit a little in my mouth to say this, but I want the Ratpukes to win this week...winning will create an even greater buzz of overratedness around them, and won't change their status as a club of low class criminals and thugs, but will make their fall even farther when we sweep them yet AGAIN this year.

I'm not pulling for the Pats to win. I am only pulling for the Ravens to lose.

Default Re: Can I root for the Ravens on Sunday

I lived in New Orleans for about 20 years. During that time, NFL Sunday ticket did not exist, and once it came into existence I couldn't afford it. There was no Steelers football televised. I was forced to watch either the Saints, the Cowgirls, the Falcons, or the Titties. I chose the Saints. In fact, it became my "second team". Friends of mine had season tickets, and I went to many of the games and began to root for the Saints so long as the outcome of the game had no bearing whatsoever on the Steelers.

I promise, there is a point to all of this...

It turns out the Saints are doing pretty well, and I will continue to root for them as long as it has no bearing on the outcome of the Steelers games. If, however, a Saints victory in any way shape or form would affect the Steelers, I would want them to lose in horrendous fashion.

Now here's my point:
I despise the Patriots* in every way imaginable. I want them to lose like Losing has never been done before. I want it to be embarrassing, complete, and undeniable.

And this is my dilemma. If the Pats*lose, the Ratbirds improve their record. Since this affects the Steelers, I must (by my own Saints Rule) root for the Ratbirds to lose.
This means the Pats* must win.

The only way that I can accept this in my own brain is to realize that I am not rooting for the Pats* to win (my brain simply won't accept that);
I am rooting for the Ratbirds to lose.

This makes the nausea somewhat less intense.

I don't really care who wins this game, as long as a lot of people get hurt.

Its going to be a huge injury week, regardless of outcome.

Of course I want to see the Ratbirds suffer. It is the highlight of my year, every year, to see them lose.

I forgot to add the caveat that in order to cheer for the Rats to win, I will be consuming VAST and copious amounts of alcohol!
