Here in Connecticut some of us root for the "New England" Patriots, but others remember two things, one with animosity, one with fondness: (1) the Patriots and a certain felonious governor who will remain unnamed toyed with the state about the team moving here, and then pulled the plug; (2) we have an uncle who is as die-hard a Giants fan as they come, and so we will be rooting for them in his honor today. Go Giants!

As a Bear fan, I don't have a dog in this hunt, but still love the memory of the comedy routine that started the career of Andy Griffith about a football game he watched and then commented on.


Andy Griffith - 1954

Both bunchesful wanted that thing.
One bunch got it and it made the other bunch just as mad as they could be!
Friends, I seen that evenin' the awfulest fight that I ever have seen in all my life !!
They would run at one -another and kick one- another
and throw one another down and stomp on one another
and grind their feet in one another
and I don't know what-
all and just as fast as one of 'em would get hurt,
they'd take him off and run another one on !!

I don't know friends, to this day, what it was that they was a doin' down there, but I have studied about it.

I think it was that it's some kindly of a contest where they see which bunchful of them men can take that pumpkin and run from one end of that cow pasture to the other without gettin' knocked down or steppin' in somethin'.

I have friends in Conn. who will be rooting for the Giants. I am north of Boston in Patriots territory and will be rooting for the Pats. It's frankly not all that important to me, but I do hope the Pats win, if only so I am spared the wailing and gnashing of teeth that would follow a loss.
