God, I Love Pro Football...
If you have issues with that video, just click through the link on the embedded object and watch it at YouTube. It's worth it. I mean technical issues. If you have issues with the appropriation of the image of historical monsters to make funny jokes, well... air those issues in comments, I guess.
The funniest thing about this, is it's so true about football fans, in *so* many ways. You know how much I love the NY Football Jints? Enough that I couldn't watch their first two playoff games. Couldn't stand to watch them.
When you care about somebody so much that much of the time you can't stand to be near them because they make you completely insane... that's real love. Admittedly, it's the sort of real love that usually wins you a restraining order and a warning from your love object's older siblings, that they have a couple 12 gauge shells with double aught buckshot in them, with your name on the side of the shells. Most people aren't really comfortable with that kind of real love, because it usually ends with somebody getting shot, arrested, or stabbed... but that's how real football fans feel about the game, and their team.
The NBA is fan-tastic? Yeah, whatever. The NFL is Fan-atic. Capital F.
One other thing - Go Jints!!!! (I added extra exclamation points to stress that I *really* want the Giants to win.)
