After living anywhere for any length of time, in this case New England for 14 years, I love to share the idiosyncrasies of each region, warts and all. You saw a typical New England sports fan peculiarity in this post.
Today is crucial for New England sports fans who, by the way, are RABID. If the New England Patriots defeat the Denver Broncos aka "Orange Crush", they will clinch the AFC Eastern division.
As you can see, rabid Patriot fans are tailgating at Mile High Stadium. This little lady (l.) is holding up an about-to-be-cooked Maine lobster...or, as they call 'em here, "Lobstah". Now THAT is tailgate cuisine at its best.
I have no love lost for the Broncos. This California girl spent many many years living in San Diego, the fiercest rival the Broncos have. I hope Tom Brady kicks Tim Tebows' butt which, for more than team loyalty reasons is a priority. Tebow, an avowed pro-lifer at the tender age of 24 is vocal about his position on pro-life. Sorry but, I just don't think men's opinion on this subject should count. They don't carry the baby, deliver the baby and many never take much responsibility for the baby. Yes, this is a gross generalization and there are plenty of men who take total responsibility and are terrific fathers but... this kid isn't a father, he isn't married and he's a Denver Bronco. But, I digress.
I assume this is a cake. I cut and pasted these photos from the Twitter site, realpatriots. They were posting lots of twit.com photos. The descriptions are not always enlightening.
This photo needs no explanation. Our troops in Iraq came home today. Did you know that? The last troops left to come home today. 10 years, 4500 casualties later. Our men in uniform are celebrating at the season's biggest game of the year.
God bless them.
Whoopie pies are HUGE in New England. dThis appears to be an actual whoopie pie with a stirring slogan on it to "whoop the Broncos". Why it would be made by the Mile High Whoopie Pie Company, I'll never know.
Enjoy the game. It's now 3rd qrtr and the score is 27-16. This writer may just have predicted the final score correctly. Hope he had some money down.
