Last night, I asked this question at a table of friends and family. My younger sister got the right answer. I don’t think many got the deeper meaning though.
The question is the title of this post. I gave a hint–they are in the AFC South. One guessed the Chicago Bears. They’re in the NFC North. Another guessed the Buccaneers and the Saints–they’re in the NFC South. That same person guessed the New England Patriots. The New England Patriots are in the AFC East but I hadn’t specified the division yet.
Here are the correct answers:
The Chicago Blackhawks are the NFC East favorites and the Arizona Diamondbacks are the favorites to win the Super Bowl. If you’ve gotten how ridiculous it is to think that a hockey team could win the NFC East and how a baseball team could win the Super Bowl, pat yourself on the back. But also know how foolish you were.
The reality is that sports are something that are fun but they say nothing of our own intelligence. I know squat about soccer but that is not necessary for me to be an intelligent person. Caring and showing interest in sports is the stupidest thing any ostrich-man could have ever come up with.
