Your “I’ll Be Honest-I’m Hoping For a Travesty Here” Sunday Night Football Open Thread

You know, the good kind of travesty whereby extraordinary misfortune befalls the easily-hateable team that has experienced so much success. The one that has had the benefit of iffy ref calls for more than a decade now. The team that has an owner that has more than doubled his significant wealth due to the hiring of a coach and the drafting of a certain qb in the sixth round on a bit of a flyer.

Yeah, that team. The one that has fans that couldn’t tell you who Steve Grogan or Andre Tippett is/was. They don’t even acknowledge the Super Bowl that Parcells took them to. “Affient bistory”, they say in their drunken, garbled tongue. That’s the fan base that doesn’t acknowledge players that have been cast aside and have ended up on other teams. “They didn’t play THE PATRIOT WAY-I hope they took the first segregated bus out of town after they was cut!”, they screech.

It’s the team that has bent the rules as far as they’ll go and have only been punished a handful of times. Logic dictates to me that they’ve been able to squash a few revealments of other wrong-doings with a wadful of cash here and a plutonium tea there. “Oh, that assistant strength coach that was booted out of the Boy Scouts for reasons unknown? His steroids weren’t replaced by insulin. No sir!”* [runs out of breath]

TO… THEGAME! [wheezes]

KC/NE:

Do what you do, Patreek Le Freek.

 

And you guys can do what you do as well

 

*may not have occurred but I’m not ruling it out completely

I am going through the threads, and it looks like I missed a helluva day of football.

But, I paid penance for missing Thanksgiving to go to Seattle. So I get to sleep at home. VICTORY!

This is my 50th season of Patriots fandom, and I know that the current streak of dominance is going to end sooner rather than later, and I’ve been expecting that end for several seasons now, but goddammit I am still happy as hell when this kinda shit happens. Having watched the Pats suck for nearly 35 years until 2001, and having hated all the dominant teams of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, I understand and empathize with the rest of the country’s hatred of my team. But tough shit. I’ve spent more years suffering than I have spent basking in glory.

Beerguyrob

I can never hate on the long time fans of a team. It’s always the bandwagoneers that ruin a team’s success. I see it every Sunday at the gathering of 12s.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I was up home for the losses to JAX and DET, and watched both in bars full of rabid Pats fans, and was honestly kind of enjoying a little schadenfreude (secretly of course). I have to tell my 20-something nephews up there, who have never known anything but Brady and success, that the sun only shines on a given dog’s ass for a given amount of time, and then moves on, and they’d best brace themselves for some 2-14 or 5-11 seasons during their time on the planet. They don’t buy it; I just hope it happens soon enough so I can tell them “I told you so.”

WCS

I absolutely detest any BAWSTAHN team winning, but, as the decedent of Stillers season ticket lifers from the 1950s, I respect the stick-to-it-iv-ness.

EDIT: You were also in the Air Force, so, common ground there.

Brocky

My beef with steelers fans is very specific:

Pieces of crap say pre superbowl titles don’t count, but unlike the Patriots, those cunts been around since the 30s.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I told the Yinzer colonel I worked for, born circa 1980, that titles didn’t count if you were still swimming around in your father’s balls.

Clearly this is a Russian bot. There are no real people who have folllowed the Pats for this long who possess empathy.

The thing that should concern the Chiefs is just how casual it was for the Patriots to go down the field on them in those last three minutes. You know how some things are just kind of automatic, like how Andy Reid finds himself at the Arby’s drive-thru without remembering even turning on the car? It was like that.

blaxabbath

I’ve not been to an Arby’s in a long time but I recall very much enjoying their sandwiches (not their fries though).
