on football fandom and flouting...

Random myspace hottie and Stiller fan
So I had been meaning to write this one for the last couple of weeks. Originally started thinking about it around the AFC championship game. Then I really wanted to go into it when the lovely and talented beststephi posted about women liking football I decided I definitely wanted to weigh in on this.

So there are some people out there who don't like football. I get that. I know some relatively cool people who don't care about football. People like jameel. I mean granted, he's a wussy little loser boy who only so barely qualifies as a man, but other than that, he's pretty much ok. What I don't get is why people who don't like football feel the need to exclaim it so much, as though there is something wrong with the rest of us. Let me just settle this once and for all. If you don't like football, guess what? There's something wrong with you. There just is. Face it. It's cool really. It's okay. There's plenty of things wrong with me. I've got tons of faults like... uh... well... ummm... I guess my penis is waaaay too large. Ok, maybe there's nothing wrong with me. But there's totally plenty wrong with lots of other people. And there's nothing wrong with that. Just accept it.

Yeah, I get it. You may not be into football. You may not care about the Steelers (Go Stillers!) So maybe its kinda annoying that all the news in this town for the last two weeks has been devoted to covering the team. You know why? Because whether you like it or not, right now, the team is the only fucking thing that matters in this city. Suck it up. Deal with it. Them's the breaks, yo! The Superbowl is the most popular event of the year. It has been for the last 40 years. It will be for the next 40. That's the simple truth. And in this particular case, the favorites to win are the team that has been the single most important segment of our city's culture for the last 30-some-odd years, even when they totally sucked. You might think that's stupid. Maybe it even is stupid. But that's how it is. Being all holier-than-thou doesn't make you cool. It doesn't help your cause. It just makes you look both pretentious and ignorant.

It's the same with people who hate reality television shows and feel the need to point out how stupid they are constantly. They are stupid. It doesn't matter. They're popular. And popular makes you important. You don't have to be popular. Not being popular doesn't make you a bad person. But it doesn't make you special either.

It just makes you a nerd.

So while you're griping about us unwashed masses enjoying our barbaric sports ritual, the rest of us will be piled into my TV room, getting wasted on beer and shouting our lungs out. Because we're so much cooler than you. Now get me another beer, four-eyes.

Go Stillers!!!

Note: If you're interested in dropping by to watch the game, let me know. Also, I apparently never had the forethought to do a sexy photoshoot of any hotties in steeler jerseys. I was forced to just steal one from MySpace. (Found by world famous poonhound anukul)So if you're a hot girl interested in being all sexy and supporting the team and giving me yet more cheesecakey photos to post in these little diatribes (and replacing "random hottie" with someone I actually know) feel free to hook a brotha up.
