The Cardinals and Eagles play for the Super Bowl on Sunday afternoon. The Redskins beat them both this season; the Eagles twice.
Of course, Washington went 5-8 against the rest, including, as The Player Hater’s Ball points out, 0-2 against the Steelers and Ravens, who face off in the AFC Championship. I’m not sure why this is (particular matchups, I suppose) or what it means (not much), but it seems worth mentioning.
Of greater interest is who to root for. Philly’s not getting our support, so Arizona it is out of the NFC. In the AFC, I don’t particular like Pittsburgh, and their fans tend to be obnoxious; though relative to the Eagles’ base they’re just fine. Yet it’s Baltimore that bothers me more. They’ve commandeered the D.C. region’s CBS airwaves on NFL Sundays, regardless of the quality of their games, for over a decade. And for that they’re unforgiven.
In the end, an Arizona-Pittsburgh Super Bowl seems the best possible outcome, with, ideally, Larry Fitzgerald, going to Disney World. Really though, anyone but Philly.
Poll: I’m curious about this one, so please only vote if you’re a Skins fan …
