OK. It is time to make fun of Spartans today.
On Sunday the Super Bowl was set when the New England Patriots defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game and the San Francisco 49ers got bounced by the New York Giants. This sets up a rematch between the Patriots and Giants when the G-men spoiled an unbeaten season by beating the Patriots in 2008.
A few people asked for a prediction in the Super Bowl and I said I think the Patriots will get revenge and beat the Giants. So what does this have to do with Spartan fans? Hang on.
Two people actually had smart ass remarks. Let me paraphrase.
“Is that because of your U-M love and bias?”
It took me a moment to figure out what they were getting at but it quickly hit me that former University of Michigan quarterback Tom Brady quarterbacks the Patriots and is the face of the franchise. So these people are dumb enough to think I would pick the Patriots to win a Super Bowl because I am in love with Michigan?
That is pretty stupid. Gee, I don’t know. Tom Brady is a Hall of Fame quarterback. Tom Brady has won three Super Bowls before. And I don’t know. I trust Tom Brady to make one more play this time just like Eli Manning did last time. I also believe Brad
Some Spartans carry around that inferiority complex like a bad cold. They think you are attacking them even when you are not thinking about them. It is silly. It has even trickled down to my son “B”. He has been brain washed by my wife’s family and is a little Sparty. He goes around rooting against Michigan and was thrilled to see Arkansas beat the Wolverines in basketball Saturday afternoon.
I asked him why he roots against Michigan.
“I don’t know,” he said. “I just don’t like them.”
I of course am a state of Michigan man. I want to see everybody do well, especially the Chippewas of Central Michigan University.
You know how far the Spartans sunk before this recent surge under Mark Dantonio. My Spartan family danced and celebrated when MSU beat the Chips this year. You are supposed to beat us every year. The only directional school the Spartans should lost to is the University of Southern California.
Any way. I am not rooting for the Patriots because I love Michigan. I simply believe they are the better team. Of course I will admit I was rooting for the Pittsburgh Steelers because of Antonio Brown.
