Superbowl 52 is finally set. The New England Patriots came from behind to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars, while the Philadelphia Eagles dismantled the Minnesota Vikings at home yesterday. Both teams impressing for different reasons.
For the Patriots this was their seventh Championship Weekend in a row. With the win football's "Evil Empire" gets a chance to win their sixth Championship of this dynasty. It was business as usual for the Patriots. Rallying behind one of the best to ever do it and giving nothing more than a "yippee" when the game was one. The Patriots and the city of New England know there is much left to be done.
Philadelphia on the other hand was playing in their first NFC Championship game since 2008 and looking to make it back to the Superbowl for the first time since 2014. Looking to win that elusive first ring. While the team kept it's composure and dominated the game, the fans of Philadelphia did not disappoint post game (or pre game for that matter).
Fighting horses, driving dune buggies up the Rocky steps, peppering the Vikings team bus with garbage, and running full speed into a post chasing down a train. Eagles fans showed that it's been a while since they have had anything to celebrate. Running a muck on the city as the rest of the world looked on.
Similar to the Philly cheese steak, Eagles fans were sloppy, idiotic, and flat mostly embarrassing. Their actions make Gronk look like a boy scout. You always see crazy things after a big win, but their stupidity just reaffirmed what the rest of the country already assumed. Philly fans suck.
As the dust settles and bail money is posted, we look towards one of the worst Superbowl's ever if you aren't a fan of the Eagles or Patriots.
On one side you have a fan base that are the Kings of Snobbville who would drown if it rained they have their snoody noses so high. On the other side you have neanderthals that are likely to cause a Planet of the Apes uprising if their team can get one more win.
For the fans of the 30 teams not play on the fourth. Grab a bottle of your finest alcoholic beverage, buckle in, and enjoy the shit show. Regardless of who wins, things are about to get real weird.
