- They were the underdogs.
- I like quarterback Eli Manning's brother, Peyton, in all of his amusing, self-deprecating commercials.
- Michael Strahan has a sweet smile and seems like a decent guy.
- Patriots coach Bill Belichick's cut-up sweatshirts are ridiculous.
I realize all of this "thinking" is coming dangerously close to my admittedly pathetic rationale for hating the Miami Dolphins for years (orange & turquoise are hideous team colors). But I had to have something; just wanting the Patriots to lose so they wouldn't be undefeated seemed terribly mean and petty.
Forgive me, Cowboys. (I was pretending it was you the whole time).
