Re: [patriotzip] Pick Your Poison//OT--NFC
- Well, 24 to be exact (1986 Super Bowl) but who's counting...lol? I can't believe it's been that long, geez.... I was right out of college. NOOOOO, I've never been a bandwagoner for any team or anything for that matter. Rams were here in L.A. and we had tickets for 4 years, but with the other teams I sort of grabbed them for other reasons....Cowboys for Aikman, Vikings and Pats inherited by marriage if you will. I followed the Pats all those years, through different coaches and players and those two nasty Super Bowls. I do have to admit that with the Bears we were just plain outmatched--they had a season in which they'd get lucky and sqeak out victories in quite a few games (as did the Whiners in their glory years), but they were the ones standing with the trophy at the end. We were outplayed...but 1997 against Favre was disappointing.I've rooted for my own teams when they had games, but I've always rooted for the Patriots too. The 2002 Super Bowl with the Rams was hard for me, but I was glad that the Pats won because the Rams had already gotten a victory. Now I will root for the Pats over any of my teams.I'm not native California, but have been here since I was about 4--was born in (gag) Buffalo, how ironic!Love the New England area and actually wish I lived in the Boston.Here's to a victory parade next year for our Pats AND I know the route they take...saw the victory parade for the Celtics in June 2008 (against the Lakers). GO PATS!!!!Where's Randy these days? Hope he doesn't mind some off-season discussion.----- Original Message -----Sent: Tuesday, January 19, 2010 9:52 AMSubject: Re: [patriotzip] Pick Your Poison//OT--NFC
Okay, then it's been 25 years. Congratulations on your silver anniversary. I was afraid you were a fan in need of a team back in 2002 when it was easy. Have you always lived out in California or do you have a connection to New England?On Tue, Jan 19, 2010 at 12:40 PM, Susan Moore <scmoore3@verizon. net> wrote:I guess since the Bears/Patriots Super Bowl season.....Sent: Tuesday, January 19, 2010 9:25 AMSubject: Re: [patriotzip] Pick Your Poison//OT-- NFC
So Susan, how long have you been a Patriot fan then?On Tue, Jan 19, 2010 at 10:59 AM, Susan Moore <scmoore3@verizon. net> wrote:Hey Barry....since I live in L.A. I was a Rams fan and had season seats for 4 years, then around the same time I started rooting for the Cowboys too. They had gone 1-15 in the 1989 season (I think it was that year) and Troy Aikman came aboard. I was intrigued to see whether he'd be able to turn things around. George, don't yell...lol!My husband roots for the Vikings and Patriots, since he's from North Dakota and therefore no pro sports. The Super Bowl between the Rams and Patriots was hard for me to watch..the Rams were favored, but during the first quarter I knew the Pats were going to win.From then on, I moved over the "dark side" if you will...lol! I root for the Patriots no matter who they are playing. It's not a bandwagon situation because we suffered through those bad years and the nasty Super Bowls at the hands of the Bears and Packers. I guess that I just became enamored of them and their organization, etc.Even if I didn't despise both the Jets and the Nags, I'd still root for the NFC because of the Viking fan in my house. I really didn't want to see Favre come back from retirement, but since he's there we want to see the Vikings win because they've had multiple failures.----- Original Message -----Sent: Monday, January 18, 2010 9:10 AMSubject: Re: [patriotzip] Pick Your Poison
You're going to root for the NFC team over the AFC team? Really? I just don't understand that.On Mon, Jan 18, 2010 at 11:35 AM, Susan Moore <scmoore3@verizon. net> wrote:I know, I agree with you here..it's just that I can't stand either team and am disgusted that these are the teams in the AFC championship game. Can't do anything about it, but am disappointed anyway. Part of it is sour grapes because I don't believe these two teams are better than ours, so we should be in there. Only trouble with us is that we didn't play up to standards and are on the outside now.It's like the title here says..pick your poison, would you rather be shot of hanged or something like that?I don't like either team for various reasons and also for the reasons you suggested. It's going to be hard to root either team on, that's for sure.I hate the things that the Jets organization did to us and inferred about us, but I also loathe the Nags organization too and the manipulations that they've done so Goober looks better than he really is (as George has outlined).Normally, I love the game of football in general and the Pats and a few other teams specifically- -I'll watch just about any game for the love of that sport. Now?? I just don't know if I can watch the AFC game, but I'll cheer on the NFC entrants and I guess hope that one of those teams wins the Super Bowl.GO PATS!!!!!!!! !!!!!!Sent: Sunday, January 17, 2010 9:00 PMSubject: Re: [patriotzip] Pick Your Poison
Anybody but goober, over and over? Yet the jets should be the real nemesis! Ryan bashes the pats, the jets "call" the pats cheaters (and everyone knows this stigma has stuck) and their organization just tries their best in anyway possible way to mess with the patriots organization. Yet everyone is against manning? I for one hope the goober and the colts crush the jets!

While I don't like the Chargers (and I live in L.A.), I really didn't want to see our nemesis win either. I don't really want to hear over and over about "Sanchez from USC this, etc".BUT, now for me it's anybody but Goober--can't stand his smug face as he walked off the field. I thought the Ravens would have given them more of a challenge too.My Cowboys blew it today but I still think that I'm going to root for the NFC team in the SB. New Orleans has never been to a Super Bowl and the Vikings have been but never won. Don't really care now as long as Goober and his Nags go down before the Super Bowl.2011 WILL be the year of the Patriots!!!! !!!!!!!----- Original Message -----From: GeorgeSent: Sunday, January 17, 2010 4:25 PMSubject: [patriotzip] Pick Your Poison
I honestly don't know which is worse, the Patriots NOT making it to the AFC Championship, or the Jets and Colts playing that game.
I will not watch it. I'll watch the NFC Championship, then I'll wait for the Super Bowl, and root with all my heart for the NFC team!!
