Greetings!

I officially renounce my status as a fan of the New England Patriots. I don't care if they win this game or not.

I remember first becoming a Pats fan in 1990, when I started watching football. The season was an awful one, one of the worst in NFL history in which the Patriots managed to go a humiliating 1-15.

The first game I fully watched was against the Colts when Steve Grogan, in one of only four starts in his final season, led the Patriots to a win. His line was 16-24 for 187 yards a TD and a Pick. Admittedly, I didn't actually remember anything but the TD and Pick and just looked up the Box from that game.

The most fun I ever had as a Pats fan was enjoying the continued seasons of awfulness that eventually ended when they, led by Drew Bledsoe, made it to the Super Bowl and lost to the Packers and that @$$hole Brett Favre.

Anyway, it's a lot more fun to be elated or neutral rather than neutral or annoyed. I spent many years amused by how awful the Patriots were and them actually starting to win was just a bonus.

Watching the NFL isn't fun anymore because I expect the Patriots to win, so I'm either annoyed or neutral. I won't even be happy if they win this game, just mildly satisfied.

I will now have a new favorite NFL team. I thought about the Panthers, mainly because I really liked Jake DelHomme, but they made the Playoffs this year, o they are probably too good right now, even though they had a losing record.

You know I'm serious about this, because the Pats just scored, so this is a winnable game.

I need a team to be really bad, and for the last few years. I hate the Rams and Raiders, always have, besides, too many people like the Raiders.

Thus, I have come to a decision, I am now a fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Cool, the Pats won. $25 for me. Who is our (the Jaguars) Quarterback, by the way? Do we have one for this year, yet?

Become a Vikings fan like me and you have a team that doesn't win all the time. And most of the time they are really bad.

I considered the Vikings, I like the Gjallarhorn after every TD.
