As you learned all too well from my Patriot game anxiety - I live in New England. Maine to be specific. And I have a good friend/co-worker who was very active on our Yes on 1 campaign. This was our gay marriage bill...and while it didn't effect me or my marriage directly, I was unbelievably outspoken about it (in favor of).
He is an avid Patriot fan, and he said that he is very torn on who to cheer for. I had been trying to work him over to our side from many angles. Honestly, he's the only Pats fan I know NOT rooting for us. I told him I can't understand Patriot fans cheering for Baltimore. They've had a nasty rivalry lately. You've got Ray the murderer. You've got Bernard Pollard who has devastated the Patriots with impact injuries (he took out Brady in 08, Welker in 09, Gronkowski last year, and he murdered Ridley last week).
One of those angles that I was hoping tipped the scales was the 49ers' endorsement of It Gets Better...
I can't BELIEVE I haven't been sent an outraged link from this yet!!
