As you know by now the NFL season has been reduced to the Final Four. Unfortunately for T3I our respective beloved Steelers, Eagles and Raiders are preparing for the NFL annual player selection meeting…more commonly known as the Draft. With our favorites gone, I thought I’d offer up my rooting interest perspective, remember this compilation does not necessarily reflect the views of Russianator or Champ.
Reason to back them: None
Reason to oppose them: Several, including Steelers losses to them in 2 AFC title games this decade. Bill Belichick. Gillette Stadium is in the middle of nowhere. But the overriding factor….I hate Boston sports teams.
Reason to back them: Powder Blue jerseys. Air Coryell Era was entertaining.
Reason to oppose them: January 15, 1995…another Steelers loss in AFC title game, that one still stings. N-O-R-V. Shawne Merriman.
Reason to back them: David Tyree? (that’s a reach)
Reason to oppose them: Exit 16W. Forced diet of Giants games by WTVH-5 and FOX-68 as a kid tasted worse than the green leafy crap on my dinner plate.
Reason to back them: Lambeau Field. Hearty fan base. Brett Favre. Cheese.
Reason to oppose them: Wisconsin is home to Miller Brewing Co.
In the end I’ll force down the Miller Lite and "back the pack", plus it would be a great story to see Favre get another title and ride off on his tractor...whatever the case remember there only 3 real football games left until August….so enjoy them.
