Road Trip into Enemy Territory
Yesterday I was invited to a Superbowl Party. As you may or may not know, I am from a suburb of Philadelphia, and for the first time in ages and ages, the Philadelphia Eagles are going to the Superbowl.

I like football, although sometimes I find it hard to sit and watch an entire game. But home team spirit is catching and Eagles fever is all around. Shirts, hats, cupcakes, "fly Eagles fly"....even if you didn't particularily enjoy football, around here you'd be a conscripted Eagles fan. So of course I'll enjoy a Superbowl party. Even though this one is a bit of a drive.

6 hours.

In Massachusetts.

Yes, I'm heading into enemy territory for the big game. My friend Neil and his wife and my friend Brad all live outside of Boston. (I get the impression that in Mass, anywhere in the state that's not Boston is "outside of Boston"--correct me if I'm wrong.) I'm assuming they are all Patriots fans, and they'll be assuming that I'm a devout Eagles fan. The question becomes, do I admit to them that I harbor secret sympathies for the Patriots (and a not-so-secret crush on Tom Brady the QB--although the mullet he is sporting lately isn't so hot) or do I play up the Eagles fever?

    It's true that many people in Massachusetts say they live right outside Boston when, in fact, that's not true. However, I'd say that when you claim to live "outside Boston," you have to be limiting yourself to eastern Massachusetts (defined, by me, as east of Worcester, which is fairly central).
    As for the Patriots-Eagles thing, be loyal to your birds... they're gonna lose, so they need all the love they can get. Tom Brady and the Patriots already have a lot of love, and they'll be getting even more after they win. It's all about the loyalty here, I'd say.
