Something Americans can agree on: Hating the Patsies! (This week the Falcons are my favorite team.)

Thanx to Metafilter

Took me a minute to figure out what you were even talking about ("Patsies?"). Can't agree. No football team, to me, is important enough to hate - even the Raiders (though I hate their obnoxious fan base, living as I do near the Oakland Colisseum; Warriors and A's fans are nowhere near as repulsive).

Actually had to Google to find out what you're referring to.

There's a Super Bowl next weekend? Didn't they have one of those last year? Why does anyone need another?

Someone posted a pie chart about who'd be cheering for th eFalcons with a tiny slice for actual Falcons fans, and the rest for people who hated the Patriots. Sadly I've not been able to find it again but, in the absence of my hoped for Packers v. Steelers game I will be cheering for the Falcons as well.

Sadly I have not won one of these 'wished for' results since the Scottish Independence referendum.
