Re: 2013 NFL Playoffs!!!
My interest in the playoffs has just about collapsed. I primarily root for three NFL teams. I root for the Raiders, a heritage from my love for the John Madden Raiders of the 1970s, but of course the silver and black have been a pathetic joke for years. I root for the Bengals because they are the local team, and they of course were eliminated last week. I root for the Packers, partially because of the old Lombardi Packers and the players they had that I admired, such as Bart Starr, and because of their current generation that includes Aaron Rodgers, Charles Woodson, et al. I was also kind of rooting for the Broncos because I like Peyton Manning, with the hope Green Bay would defeat Denver in this year's Super Bowl.
Now that the Packers and Broncos both went down, no team is left that I care about. I don't even have the Steelers to root against.
