Sibling Super Bowl

There is something special about the unique band of being brothers.

Brothers you love. Brothers you hate. Brothers forever and a day.

It’s all about brotherly love. A love that only brothers can fathom. A love that is somewhat less complicated than gnashing our bicuspids over the meaning of life and what comes after death.

Blood is as thick as a medical school textbook. Thick as the Beijing phonebook. You can look it up.

I once threw six darts, and four of them stuck, at one of my brothers on Christmas Eve in a scoring disagreement. My mom was not pleased.

I once gave another brother a bloody nose in a disagreement over a misplaced typewriter cover. Little did we know then that typewriters soon would become as past tense as the Joe Louis left hook I nailed my brother with.

Now, oh brother, are we gonna have a Super Bowl. Jim Harbaugh will lead his San Francisco 49ers against John Harbaugh’s Baltimore Ravens.

Why the hell is this Super Bowl in New Orleans?

It definitely should be in Philly, the City of Brotherly Love.

It’s gonna be one intense family affair.

A game that will make all of us brothers in arms.

Except for those who were an only child or stuck with just sisters.

Then again, those folks already know that life is as unfair as a casino.

    The narrative has already been set. They’re both saying that the game is about their players, not them.

    Shannon Sharpe blasted New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick for refusing to do an interview with CBS Sports following their loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

    The Hall of Fame tight end and analyst for “The NFL Today” called Belichick’s behavior “unacceptable” after the Patriots lost the AFC Championship game to the Ravens 28-13.

    “Bill Belichick makes it real easy for you to root against the Patriots,” Sharpe said to CBS. “You can’t be a poor sport all the time. You’re not going to win all the time and he does this every time he loses.”
