They Might Be Giants: "The Shadow Government."
There's a hint there as to where my loyalties lie in today's "big game." My late father is spinning in his grave, but I simply cannot root for the Patriots. As an Eagles fan, the idea of rooting for a New Yawk team really sticks in my esophagus. But. They are just too much. Too much hype. Too arrogant. Too cocky. Too much swagger. And they cheat. They remind me too much of You Know Who.
In fact, right now, they really are "America's Team," in so many (not-so-great) ways.
And here's a shout-out to my nephew J., who is 21 today. Between that to celebrate and the game, the Agitator house will be rockin.'
