I had plans to write previews of each team leading up to tomorrow’s game but I just couldn’t decide which angle to take.  First, I don’t find anything interesting about the Chargers getting rolled by the Patriots and second, I just can’t get my hopes up for a Giants victory tomorrow.

As a fan and a bloggerix, this puts me in a bind, and being the avoidant coper that I am, that’s why there was radio silence from me through the week.  But alas, I will do my best but it’s only because I know you all depend on me.

San Diego at New England: The Bolts’ surprising run in the playoffs has even turned the O.G. Norv Turner hater, writing that he owes Turner an apology.  Pussy.   Just because you had The Clap and you took care of it shouldn’t excuse your risky, hooker ass behavior for contracting The Clap.

So while the conventional wisdom on Norval has shifted because he’s in the Championship game, Norv is useless in my book.  He inherited a very talented team, took them to the brink of disaster, was blessed to play in a weak division, played a weak Wild Card opponent, was blessed - again - to play the Choking Colts in the Divisional Round, and has now made it one game away from the Super Bowl not because of him but in spite of him.

Dumb fucking luck.

And, as the captain of the Hatetriots, dumb fucking luck is exactly what I am hoping will strike on Sunday and lift the Chargers to the Super Bowl.

Can you imagine it?  Norv Turner.  Fucking Patient Zero for the Coaching STD, leading Billy Volek, Michael Turner, and a dinged up crew into Gillette Stadium and beating Bill Belichick, and his football playing savants.  Massachusetts just might spontaneously explode.

If you are a moral person, you will be rooting for the Chargers on Sunday.

Prediction: Chargers 28, Patriots 27

New York Giants at Green Bay:  I’m sort of stuck in a bind here.  I, of course, want the Giants in the Super Bowl but I think that the Packers match up better to beat the Patriots if they actually are able to muster the giddy-up to roll the Chargers in the early game.  Plus, I don’t want my Giants to have the dubious distinction of being the team that lost to the Pats for their 16th win AND also lose to the Pats for their 19th win.

This has sort of been a dream season for us: Championship game, Eli has graduated into being a fairly decent game manager, the running game and the pass rush are both solid and I don’t want to see it end.

However, I think there is a moral responsibility for a team to beat the Patriots.  Now maybe, maybe the Giants will be able to do it.  They almost did it once.  But for me, that’s a little too much to chance.  You see, I’m a little too scarred from the 2001 Super Bowl when Big Blue lost to the Ravens.  I had to go into rehab.

So, depending on who wins the early game, I’ll either be rooting for the Giants or the Packers.  I know, it’s mercenary of me.  How can I be a true fan, you ask?

You spend a week in a strait jacket in the lady’s wing of the Mid-Hudson Mental Hygiene Center and you’ll catch my drift.

Too soon…too soon.

Prediction: If the Bolts win - Giants 31, Packers 28; If the Pats win - Giants 31, Packers 35
