Most of it, anyway. I go to church on Sunday night so I got home about halfway through the second quarter. I watched it for a couple of reasons.
It's the only game I watched all year. It's not so much a boycott of the NFL, I'm not a huge boycott fan, but something else. See, I see the NFL as a business providing entertainment to it's customers. When a business lets it's employees insult the customers and the American people, well, there are consequences for that.
There's a restaurant in Lawrence Mrs Safe and I have loved for years. Little local noodle house on Mass. We used to go there anytime we were in Lawrence and wanted to eat. We went there for fifteen years or more I suspect. Loved the place. Good food, good service. Well, the last time we were there, the service was terrible. There was hardly anybody there and we still got lousy service. And the food was awful.
So we aren't complainers. We didn't tell the manager how bad it was. We didn't go on Yelp and write a bad review. When a restaurant has slipped that far they probably don't care what you think. But we'll never go back. We're customers and they let us down.
On the other hand, there's a Mexican restaurant in Topeka that we love. Probably eight out of ten times when we eat out, it's there. Service ranges from very good to excellent. Food is always good. We've never been disappointed. So we go back again and again and will continue as long as they make the effort to make their customers happy which they seem intent on doing. (El Dorado at 29th & Croco by the way, highly recommend it).
So that's why I stopped watching NFL games this year. They were allowing their employees to insult me and my friends and my fellow countrymen over and over. And it pissed me off. So why watch the Super Bowl you ask? Good question.
First there was the political side. The QB, the coach and the owner are all friends of President Trump and speak positively of him. So I like that.
Then the ungodly left launched a full on attack on the Patriots because of that, pouring out the hate and snark and doing what they do best, hating everything good in the country. Plus the ungodly left hates them just because they hate patriots of any kind.
So I wanted to watch the left suffer another humiliating defeat by someone they hate intensely. And it happened, and happened perfectly.
The left was sure as always they would win. They thought their hatred and superiority and general nastiness would have some effect, just like they thought would happen with the election.
And as the game went on, they were convinced they had it in the bag, just like the election. And watching Facebook it was hilarious the hateful comments endorsed by thousands of liberals laughing at what they thought was a win, a humiliating pounding of their enemy. Just like they thought the election would be.
And what happened? They found out the hard way. The superior team came back and won against all odds. Broke multiple world records. Never surrendered. Never accepted defeat. And all those snarky Facebook posts made the lefties look pretty stupid in the end. Just like the election.
So the lesson for the godless left is, never underestimate what Patriots can do, even when you think their back is against the wall and you have them beaten. You should know that by now, but you don't. You're not smart enough to figure that out. Learn from this lefties. There's a lesson there for you.
