Football wars

In the MonkeyHouse, there are two potential battles every football season.

I am a Michigan Wolverines and Kansas City Chiefs fan.

MonkeyHusband is a Penn State Nittany Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

Every couple of years, Penn State plays Michigan. Every couple of years, KC plays Pittsburgh.

Last year, the Steelers beat the hell out of the Chiefs. MonkeyHusband still rubs it in.

Needless to say, I'm enjoying yesterday's Michigan win twice as much because they whupped Penn State.

I'm not sure where you got the football gene from, mom or dad... or neither? But thank goodness that it completely bypassed me. You give me a headache! :) I still love you though.

Just gotta say, as a Penn State and Chiefs Fan, I am obviously bad karma for football teams. Maybe I should start claiming I love the Raiders?

I grew up 150 miles north of KC. Because we were so close, every Chiefs and Royals games were on at least one of the three available TV channels, usually pre-empting normal programming.
To this day I despise both the Chiefs and the Royals with equal intensity.
The Steelers won me a bet in Junior High though.
Sorry about that.
