One storyline that the NFL will relentlessly attempt to promote is that certain teams do not like each other. Steelers vs. Ravens is the one that comes to mind the most, and it’s true. They are much like a pair of prison gangs competing over the heroin trade. But it’s true for other teams as well. Jacksonville and Tennessee are like a pair of married couples who have a regular “double date” scheduled for an inconvenient day during the week which they hate doing and would much rather avoid, but are too passive-aggressive to ever bail on. The Jets hate the Patriots the way a cab driver hates a Wall Street broker. The cab driver hates the broker because he’s rich, handsome, happy, cheats on his taxes and gets away with it, and cheats on his wife too and even if she got caught she wouldn’t even really care. And the broker hates the cab driver because he’s poor and doesn’t wear deodorant. Or maybe he wears plenty of deodorant but it’s not even remotely effective. The Chiefs hate the Raiders like a cop hates a criminal. And the Broncos hate the Raiders like a cop hates a criminal. And the Chargers hate the Raiders like a cop that got fired from his last job and moved to a new city hates a criminal that is actually more popular locally than the cop.
This week’s radio theme is “adversaries” and as usual, there was no shortage of hate available from our listeners. An honorable mention to Gratliff for getting topical with “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” by the Dead Kennedys, with top marks this week go to SonOfSpam (again? yes, again):
As usual, here’s your Spotify link. Enjoy!
