Cheering for Patriots this Super Bowl Cause They’re from a Democrat State

New England Patriots

New England Patriots

Super Bowl LI is tomorrow as I write this. The New England Patriots are in it against the Atlanta Falcons. Generally, I hate all things Patriots, having been a Peyton Manning fan for about two decades since he was in collage. I’m also not a fan of cheaters, never mind repeat cheaters. However, I’ve recently decided there are some things worse than the New England Patriots, and that includes those with no regards for people, their rights and who are hypocrites to everything they say and try and force upon others. That would be those supporting whoever that guy is in the White House who thinks he runs the world and is above the law.

In 8-11, the most recent US election, Georgia voted Republican and Massachusetts voted Democrat. As a result, I’m going to put my pride aside and support the team I’ve hated so much over the years. Seriously, it’s just football. A little cheating ain’t right but it’s just a minor part of life. This whole other political thing, that messes things for everybody, even those who don’t live under that umbrella like me in Ca-na Land.

This Super Bowl, I’m going to be supporting the New England Patriots instead of the Atlanta Falcons cause the Patriots play in a Democrat state. I realize the city of Atlanta voted Democrat, and that Matty Ice played at Boston College in Massachusetts. However, I’m looking at the bigger picture which is what so many Republican supporters fail to see.

Now, this is just a harmless action and it’s just for fun. I’m not going to be too miffed if the Patriots lose, let’s just say it that way. But for the small sake of picking a team to support that isn’t of much interest to me, political lines is the critical factor on which I’m going to make my decision this year.

No more people from Republican states in the White House! (re winning team visit)

Least Likely To Facebook Tagging Meme

After creating my version of the next generation of pictorial Facebook tagging meme in the Most Likely to version,the logical progression was a Least Likely To version below so this is original at the time of posting as far as I know it. While one can use thisย  poster in a pessimistic way towards tagging people for the future, to identify friends who would be least likely to do something, I meant it as a reflective exercise with the instructions being to tag friends who were least like to do something.

This is an exercise to acknowledge how people change in big ways we don’t expect, but that we should afford them the chance to in life, rather than blocking them in by removing their potential. I’m generally a positive kind of guy, though with a bit of a wicked sense of humour, at times, as you can see by some of my choices in the poster below. As a result, despite using the same poster as the Most Likely to version, I changed the picture text to be more general in some circumstances. We may dream or lift others to the post of president, for example, but in reality, just being a leader applies to far more of us than president, no matter what kind of president you want to consider.

I’m too tired to put links to all these people but you can Google them, and maybe guess why I’ve put labeled each as such.

Most Likely To… The Evolution of a Facebook Tagging Meme

Note: Since this posting, I have evolved Facebook picture tagging memes on my own ideas far beyond this concept I saw. My ideas involve real world and life actions rather than just associating ideas. They are listed under the Action memes category, involving what I call Facebook 2.0 tagging memes.

The pictorial Facebook tagging memes that have been going around in many variations seems to have evolved into that common high school year book feature, the Most Likely To… page. I saw one just hours ago, but it was so poorly done (mostly due to almost unreadable small type) I went and created my own, text, picture compilation and all. Here’s how to get it:

  • Click on the picture below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends or let them tag themselves.
