So I have to share something that just happened on the Colts forum. Naturally, in the two weeks before the Super Bowl, fans of the opposing team (this time, the Saints) will come onto our board and basically talk smack about how they are so much better, the Colts are going down, et cetera ad nauseum. So anyway, one of these trolls posted this today...
YOU SHOULD ALL BE ROOTING FOR THE SAINTS
1. Saints have not yet won a Superbowl but the Colts have. Hence, the Saints will both want it more and will mean more to them.
2. Everyone else is rooting for the Saints. There's a myth that the Saints are the underdogs and everyone loves an underdog. But even if they knew the Colts were the underdogs, everyone would still want the Saints to win. Even if a person knew nothing about either team and had to root for a team based on uniforms, they'll pick the Saints unless they like the thing that horses wear better than religious symbols. Maybe it's just my opinion but that horse shoe seems like one of the most banal symbols in the entire league.
3. It's inevitable that the Saints will win so why root for a team that stands no chance? I went through the reasons for this in another thread. After spending two weeks thinking you have a good chance to win the game and then shown otherwise, you'll be depressed. There's a far better chance that Peyton will have to be carted off the field than leaving with the in hand. Sorry. It's more humane for me to tell you this because it will lessen the shock. Great season, btw, maybe next year.
For those reasons (and more) you should root for the Saints instead of the Colts. Who dat!
I never respond to trolls (for obvious reasons), but this one made me laugh so hard I couldn't resist. Here is my response:
Whew, took a while to stop laughing. Oh wait...BWAHAHAHAHAHA...*sniff* Okay, I think I'm done now.
So yo, something you might want to know...I don't know a single person who likes the Saints, and I don't live anywhere near Indiana. In fact, everyone pretty much almost feels pity for people so lacking in intelligence that they continue to live below sea level when they have been warned hundreds of times that there will be a hurricane. Not to mention the absolutely corrupt state and local government you have elected to serve you...who spent the money they were supposed to be using to shore up the levee, etc. And that doesn't even include all the devout people like myself who know that NO is just a blasphemy against ANYTHING religious or Christian. What other place has taken a religious holiday and turned it into a time for having sex out in the streets with strangers? None I can think of. Saints?? God knows better.
So go ahead and continue believing all of America loves you and isn't thinking you are a town full of, well, I'll just stop here. But wait, one more thing...
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
I must also say here that these Saints fans have told us that it's destiny, that the Saints have pulled them all together when the rest of America let them down in their time of need. Several of the posters on our board actually donated money for the relief efforts from Katrina, even a couple went down there to personally volunteer and help rebuild. These generous people also had to point out to the Saints fans that in the midst of the disaster, their team's owner was trying to bail out of New Orleans and was looking for a new place to relocate. It's funny how they now think that the team was their savior, and all those thousands of Americans who donated money and personally volunteered their time to help them are forgotten. The sense of entitlement here blows my mind. But I guess it shouldn't, since this country elected Obama, the king of all entitlement-minded socialists.~k
