In past years, I've always had a team to cheer for (or vehemently against).
-2009: Cardinals (cuz the Steelers winning would cause mental trauma)
-2008: Patriots (cuz I wanted to see history made)
-2007: Colts (cuz I wanted Peyton to get the monkey off his back)
-2006: Seahawks (see: 2009 scenario...needless to say both these years I was in my own personal hell)
And so on...
This year? I have no team to cheer for or against. I like both these teams. They're both very fun to watch and both have awesome passing games. You have two QB's who can dominate a game and score in literally a minute, and neither team has a defense worth being in awe over like teams in the past.
So, how to pick?
Well kids, I'm going to choose using the "clueless people who don't know how to choose a team based on football reasons" logic. The kind of logic often chosen by tech nerd men and ditzy girls...the people who choose to root for a team cuz "Team A's jersey is more badass than Team B's" and so on. You know the kind. The kind that true football people roll their eyes at, if not get truly frustrated over. Well, I have to use this logic cuz neither team has much of an emotional pull for me.
So what's my logic for who to choose?
Commercials. And the sultan of NFL TV commercials is...you guessed it: Peyton Manning. My personal favorites being Peyton's Sprint NFL Mobile commercial and the MasterCard commercial where he cheers on his favorite butcher.
So, CUT THAT MEAT! CUT THAT MEAT! Go get em' Peyton!
