Lets try to figure out this moron's point.
On the surface, it may not seem that important. But it is. If the New England
Patriots defeat the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC championship game on Sunday,
it will unleash a wave of boredom and annoyance that could reach biblical
Boredom? The Patriots have played in 3 SuperBowls, they won two on a last second Field Goal, and they won the 3rd with an interception at the end of the game to seal the deal. Hardly blowout wins that put people to sleep.
Does society really need to see more camera shots of Belichick on the sidelines
in an old sweatshirt with the sleeves cut off? The Super Bowl reaches
approximately 1 billion people in over 230 countries and territories. What we’re
saying to the world, in essence, is that this is one of the most successful men
in the U.S. at his profession, and if you work hard enough, you too can someday
dress like him. I imagine that might slow human initiative around the globe.
Another national writer with the "attire" issue on Belichick. Yawn.
And don’t forget that if the Patriots actually win the Super Bowl, then
Belichick will be asked to say a few words. This will extend an already
interminable telecast because everyone will have to wait around for the
voice analysis experts to determine what he said. Belichick’s unique combination
of mumbles, grunts and intermittent clichés also threaten to put an entire
planet to sleep, although they do succeed in exciting some researchers in the
field of primate communication.
Now its becoming insulting. Hearing a reserved individual show emotion, to me, isn't boring - its refreshing. Nothing makes me happier to see somebody who typically doesn't let his emotions out actually SHOW EMOTION. This guy is a clown.
The Pats don’t have widespread appeal, like the Dallas Cowboys or Los
Angeles Lakers or New York Yankees. Their core audience consists of people in
and around Boston who need a fifth choice on their anger checklist behind the
Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics and the Big Dig. Of those, the Patriots have the best
track record lately by far, but that is offset by the fact that an NFL team only
plays once a week. Sports fans in New England are the happiest when they’re
miserable on a daily basis.
Now this guy is offending me. Listen moron, here's where you're wrong:
- The Patriots are the #2 at the very least, possibly the #1 (in my circle) for Boston fans. The Bruins and the Celtics??? Please pal, get a grip. You're clueless.
- I know you're from LA, so you don't really have any sense of the national sports landscape, but the Dallas Cowboys and the LA Lakers haven't been a factor in years. Was TO a factor? Sure. Was Kobe vs Shaq a factor? Sure.
But on a "major story" level, those two clubs have been non-factors for a long time.
- Boston fans aren't miserable. At least the "real" ones aren't. You've watched too many HBO specials, or "The Curse" documentaries you clown.
This guy is clueless, but not in a "hey I at least got you to read my story so I'm not that clueless" kind of way. He's clueless in a "you have no business writing about sports" kind of way.
Thanks to Kegman for sending this along.
