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]
Do what you do, Patreek Le Freek.
And you guys can do what you do as well
