There’s never a good day to die… unless you’re Klingon. However, if there were a day for New York Giants football matriarch Ann Mara to pass away, Super Bowl Sunday would be as symbolic as any. She passed away due to complications from a head injury in a fall a few weeks ago (ESPN).
It’s very sad news for the football world on an otherwise big happy day, or more tragic if you dislike the Seahawks and utmostly loathe the Patriots as much as I do.
But here’s to remember a complete class act in Ann and the Giants. Rest in peace, Ann, and soon joy as the Giants will be back at the top again I’m sure.
You know how people boycott brands whose makers they don’t approve of? Well, I’m taking it to the football sense.
I hate the Patriots for their cheating ways. Robert Kraft owns them and there’s a lot of Kraft products out there. It’s bad enough they got to this Super Bowl XLIX by cheating. If they win it, I’m going to boycott all Kraft products till they are dethroned.
I know my actions won’t make a dent in their income and such. However, I’m doing my part and that’s all I can really do. If that’s not good enough, then you can extend the argument to why vote where the action of one individual won’t mean a heck of a lot. It’s a principle and morals stand that’s worth far more personally than it ever might be socially.
Unless it catches on as a meme, of course, hahaha. Too bad I don’t think people are nuts enough to do it. But I’ll tell you one thing, it’ll make for one heck of a good short party story while my boycott lasts if the Pats win. If not, I’ll still minimize my Kraft purchases after Deflategate… even more so than my restraint after Spygate. 🙂
The Super Bowl is the biggest betting day of the year. There are bets and odds available for just about everything, including some really ridiculous things!
Given that premise, I want to know the odds being offered for something far less ridiculous, which is the New England Patriots cheating. Seriously, they are serial cheaters. When they get caught, it’s not for an instance, but a long running scheme they had been running to the point of getting caught. They know the NFL marketing machine well that big penalties aren’t going to be handed out so that the crime is well worth the risks. No wins forfeited. No Super Bowl trips retracted. But also no big prizes if they don’t cheat either cause have they won any Super Bowls since Spy Gate?
So yes, very seriously, what’s the Vegas line for the Patriots cheating this Super Bowl XLIX???
I’d bet on more than even. Question is will the Pats get caught, not would they do it. 🙂
