Patriot Fans

There are a lot of things going on in the world this week.

The United Nations estimated that over 34000 civilians were killed in Iraq in 2006. Somebody really hates freedom.

Fidel Castro is probably going to die.

Lindsey Lohan checked into rehab

Mitch Daniels gave his "State of the State" speech.

Butchdingo finally received the recognition he deserves. (so did indygirl, masson and other torporindy favorites)

However, this week, I am only going to write about the Colts.

You know Indianapolis has struggled with its image for years. Hopefully the rest of the country doesn't know that the toothless hilljacks featured on Armed and Famous are only an hour away.

On the other hand, New England conjures certain images--old money, lineage and tradition. Boston itself is home to several great universities including two of the best--Harvard and MIT. This weekend the circle city will be blessed because scores of sophisticated New England Patriot fans will visit our city. Fellow Hoosiers, I know you have visions of smoking jackets and fireside philosophy chats with our visitors about the Frankfurt School philosophers vs. the 68ers. Well, I wouldn't dust off that Adorno book just yet. You can probably still use your Derrida text to stabilize that wobbily table because I have a feeling that most Patriot fans are like the guy below. Watch the video to get a taste of his wicked awesome commentary about his beloved Patriots.

(I warn you the sound is probably not safe for work, so keep the volume low)

I usually don't comment on blogs that are not considered one of the top fifteen in the city, but whatever.
