First, let me say that maybe I'm giving up a tad early on Baltimore, but they're down early and it isn't looking good. And after the Iggles relentlessly teased me with a near comeback, I just can't take that kind of stress...
An Arizona Pittsburgh SB?!? Are you kidding me? I mean seriously, can there be a greater cap of a hellish year for Seattle sports fans than this debacle. Our weak-sister division rival and perhaps worst regular season team EVER to make the post-season vs. the team most of us haven't forgotten nor forgiven for the highway robbery of SB XL.
I try to be a better man and not hate, but how can I find anything, anything at all to take from this matchup to enjoy? I don't want to watch a game solely to see players get hurt (though karma dictates Hines Ward deserves a career-ender every time he walks on the field, the dirty bastard.)
I will be forced to support Arizona, that's how much I dislike Pittsburgh, but that being said, I have no faith they can (without assistance ala Stealers in XL) win the game.
So, this SB I believe I will be on either a golf course or snowboarding, whichever the weather shows to be the better choice for this Washingtonian transplanted to Denver. I'm sick and tired of our teams and our city getting karmically crapped on, and I'm walking away from this year's zero sum game.
