My wife and I were discussing the upcoming game last night (actually, she was biching abiut why I biught the NFL ticket, seeing that every Pats game, exept for 3, have been on commercial or cable TV), when she asked if I'd been in bith Oakland and SF. I said yes. She asked what teh difference in teh fans are. I said this:
Both are wine and cheese crowds. In SF, the wine is from Napa Valley, merlot, 1998, and the cheese is a nice cheddar or brie on a lightly salted rye cracker. In Oakland, the wine is anything in a box or a screw on cap (vintage Tuesday), and the cheese is Cheez Whiz on a generic brand saltine.
In Sf, fans look at you if you sing the National Anthem off key of forget the words. In Oakland, they'll kill you for knowing half the words, and if you wear anything other than Black. The Stick, on game day, looks like a preppie convention, while The Black Hole has more latex in it that the annual adult video convention in Vegas.
In The Stick, it's appropriate to say "Thank you, sir/ma'am" after being served or assisted. In The Black Hole, if you don't say "Mother F*&^%$!" at least once in any conversation, you get a beat down.
Fans in The Stick knows what it feels like to be associated with a winner. Fans in The Black Hole have to go back a full generation to recall when the Raid-uhs were, well, relevent.
Jackets worn will not be an issue come Sunday night.
