The Dunkin’-Wawa divide runs deep.
Before New England and Philadelphia square off Sunday in Super Bowl LII, Saturday Night Live took a look back to the Revolutionary War era, and the two passionate fan bases didn’t seem that different.
“Dynasty. That’s the word you’re looking for. Dynasty,” said host Natalie Portman, celebrating New England’s recent victory in the Battle of Bunker Hill — much to the annoyance of their fellow colonists.
The sketch featured the return of former SNL cast members Rachel Dratch, a Lexington native, and Tina Fey, who grew up outside Philly, both of whom sported their best hometown accents.

But the trash talk got heated after Fey insulted New England’s “precious captain, Thomas Brady.”
“Boston’s not even a real city,” Fey said. “It’s a college town with a fishing pier.“
Dratch replied that Philadelphia should “talk to us when you win one.”
“One if by land; two by your mother,” she later added.
