Root Root Root for the Giants (I Guess)
No, I am rooting for the Giants for one simple reason, during the regular season matchup in Foxboro, the Patriots didn't do their job and lost. Had they won, the Giants miss the playoffs and my beloved Eagles win the division instead, and we could be talking about an Eagles Vs. Patriots rematch (more likely we would be talking about a Packers vs. Patriots rematch, but that is besides the point). And before you start spouting "facts" like if the Eagles hadn't blown 5 4th quarter leads, they would have made the playoffs, that is irrelevant, the only fact that matters is the Patriots lost to the Giants costing the Eagles a playoff spot and that is why I cannot in good conscience cheer for the Patriots.
Though the Superbowl is meaningless to me, there was another bowl this week. One that has far deeper consequences than who wins a stupid football game. I am talking of course of the Wing Bowl. Kobayashi set a new record by eating more than 300 wings. While I am awed by his glutenous feat, is this a sign of Japanese resurgence and America's decline? It may and it should have us all concerned.
