I can't believe I'm about to talk football, but I am.
In less than three hours, the New England Patriots will face the New York Jets again. The last game was an embarrassment. The Jets scored a mere 3 points as the Patriots ran up the score to scary heights. I shrank in my seat as I watched, surrounded by a bunch of New England fans.
I've been in California a long time, but I'm a Jersey Girl. And the overwhelming majority of my family members are Jets season ticket holders. (Even some who live in California.) And it's hard to watch the home team get destroyed.
But we're having a heatwave. It's going to be 80 degrees today. It's the playoffs and tomorrow is a holiday. So I'm going out to join all my Massachusetts friends watch what, hopefully, will not be a massacre for the Jets.
Do you root for your home team? Do you root at all?
