Philadelphia Eagles fans probably deserved this one. Comparing a football franchise to the U.S. Postal Service is a true insult. The agency has been called slow, overburdened with bureaucracy, and laced with a regressive tendency to “go postal.” The meme-worthy reply: “Well played, Patriots fans.”
Patriot fans scored a genuine win with this one. The Patriots and Eagles fan base rivalry goes way back, but the Super Bowl LII matchup stirred it up even more. All told, the East coast rivals have a lot in common when it comes to exuberant expressions of team spirit.
Goodell vs. Brady
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell can do no good. The unpopular NFL bureaucrat has a penchant for suspending the league’s favorite players, and that’s exactly what he did to beloved Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady. So, when Brady’s Super Bowl LI jersey was reported stolen, blaming Goodell was a no-brainer.
Fans shown here at New England Patriots Super Bowl victory parade in Boston ripped the commissioner a new one, in sign after sign. But this one took the prize. First, the commissioner stole four game days from Brady, depriving Patriots fans of their favorite quarterback for allegedly overinflating a pigskin. Next, when the five-time championship quarterback overcame the setback and won the Lombardi trophy anyway, his jersey disappears from his locker. Goodell must have stolen that too. Logic.
Prime Time Dig
She got the house, the car, and the (eternally sold-out) Packers season tickets. Here’s her chance for just one more jab at the lying, cheating ex who has undoubtedly blocked all her calls, texts and social media accounts by now.
Ha! Revenge is a dish best served cold. She gets the last word—dishing it out live, broadcast nationwide. Who’s the loser now? How’s that cozy couch-side view? Sure, he may have found someone better. But he’ll have to wait 30 years to procure another set of Green Bay Packers season tickets. Sorry. Lambeau Field sold out in 1960. No extra charge for sub-zero temps.
She Likes Super Bowl Champs - He Likes the Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys won more regular-season games than any other franchise. You’ll have to go back to the days of the moon landing to see evidence of that monumental winning streak. The team also procured two Super Bowl championships during that era. In both 1971 and 1977, the Cowboys clinched the world championship title. By the ’80s, those glorious days gradually began slipping away into oblivion. However, the ’90s brought new wind to the team’s sails, and they proceeded to overcome the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVII.
The following year the two teams matched up once more, and the Cowboys, again, took the Bills. In 1995, the Cowboys won Super Bowl XXX by crushing the Pittsburgh Steelers for their fifth, and final, Super Bowl championship. This Cowboys fan claims to like the Super Bowl, as if the game is somehow related to his team this century. The fact is, it’s been over twenty years since the Cowboys have played in a Super Bowl game. If he likes the Super Bowl, maybe he should like what she likes.
Dedicated or Dumb?
During the 1970s, the San Diego Chargers and the Miami Dolphins rose to become serious contenders. That’s when their rivalry first ignited. It was on display at an AFC Orange Bowl playoff game in January 1982. The clash between the two high-scoring teams unleashed a fireworks performance, and San Diego’s win made it one of the best NFL football games ever played. The Dolphins, for their part, won the Super Bowl three consecutive years: 1971, 1972 and 1973. Glory days.
Today, they’ve passed them by. The Chargers are falling through the cracks to oblivion on the streets of L.A. while the Dolphins haven’t seen the Super Bowl since 1984. These two fans are making the best of it. Huge score with getting players to sign their banners!
