Super Bowl LII

The wind chill feels like it is about 50 degrees below zero in Chicago today, but on Sunday, two teams will play indoors for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

As much as I enjoyed this NFL regular season, I cannot remember ever being less "excited" about watching a Super Bowl. I thought my decision last year to root for the Philadelphia Eagles was an odd one, but this feels even more so.

So, yeah, I am going to root for the Rams, even though they were completely gifted the win in the NFC Championship Game by a bad call, and even if the pro-football fans in Los Angeles are not exactly "long-suffering." I just prefer to see Kraft, Belichek, and Brady lose again. Most likely though, they will win. Over the past 17 years, the sports fans of Boston and of New England have won numerous championships, including at least one in every major North American sport. The Red Sox literally just won the World Series. While the Celtics and Bruins are not going to win the title this year, they still are good teams. When is AOC or someone like her going to call for redistribution of sports wealth?
