A Nation Divided

As all three of our regular readers have probably figured out, two of us who write for this site are San Diego fans, and the other is a Boston fan living in San Diego. Usually we all play nicely.

But this weekend, with the Chargers and Patriots taking each other on for the AFC Championship game, things are tense here in the Nation. It’s brother against brother - er, brother against sister, since Dave is the only guy – sister against sister, blogger against blogger! The stakes are high: San Diego has never won a championship in a major sport. New England is trying to become the only team to go undefeated since the NFL went to the 16-game regular season. Pink Hat Nation has never had a weekly staff viewing of The Wire in which one or two of us have wanted to kill the other(s), as I suspect will happen after the game.

I’m going to take the high road and just say, May the best team win. But if that team is the Chargers, so help me God…..
