This guy here is Bruce Marziani, he’s from Philadelphia and he’s a Dallas Cowboys fan…for no reason whatsoever. We all know people like this, from a town with thriving sports franchises yet rooting for another team from another town that probably has had some recent success or is the rival of the home team town and we all hate them. Being from DC, I know this phenomenon to be true all too often. Well, looks like the Football Gods have spoken against Bruce.
Bruce flew down to Dallas to watch his favorite team face his hometown Philadelphia Eagles, presumably so he didn’t get beat up watching this same match-up at home later in the year, and he brought with him some autographed memorabilia to hopefully get some more signatures put upon them. Part of his collection he brought included a helmet signed by Troy Aikman he said was valued at $900 and a NFL Cowboy game autographed program worth around $700 (i know, seems high right?). All of this must have severly angered the Football Gods because for some reason, he left that stuff in his hotel room during the game and someone broke in and stole them along with his computer and camera.
Sucks for the guy if the story is true, but why didn’t he bring that stuff with him if he was trying to get some more autographs on them? And why didn’t he bring his camera with him if he was going to the football game? Did he just forget the whole reason why he went to the game? And if he had over $1500 of valuables in his room…why didn’t he lock any of it up? Has he ever stayed in a hotel room before?
Of course its wrong to blame the victim, but i’m just saying, karma is a bitch…root for your home team or the Football Gods will apparently deal with you in unfortunate ways. Its not his fault his stuff got jacked, but it is his fault he’s a Dallas fan and for that, there are consequences.

What the Patriots did to the Washington Redskins last night was the worst loss I have ever seen in all my years of Redskins fandom. Think thats a stretch? The last time they lost near that bad was in 1961 when the Giants beat them 53-0.
It got so bad for me, the Redskins fan, that Cowboys fans at the sports bar I was at were actually cheering on the team that throttled them 48-27 just two weeks ago. That is some crazy shit right there and only confirms my belief that Cowboys fans are the single worst fans in sports. Yes, worse than Eagles fans…although it ain’t by much.
Did the Patriots run up the score? Lets see, final score was 52-7…you damn right they ran up the score. New England went for it on 4th down, twice, while up over 30 points to the Redskins and they never stopped passing the ball. Think the Patriots care? Nope. “…we don’t care,” Patriots’ receiver Donte Stallworth said after the game.
Now I am not going to whine about how big bad Bill Belichick shouldn’t have done this or that nor will I complain about these random, ongoing, headset problems that seem to happen at Gillette…I am just going to say this:
Do not anger the Football Gods, New England Patriots. The Gods of the Football do not like taunting. Egos large and small have been crushed by the Football Gods. What Belichick, Brady, Moss and the entire organization are in danger of is thinking that they are bigger than the game. A beatdown of that magnitude signifies it. They don’t care, they say. Its all about the Patriots right now and karma is a bitch whore.
So, on this day, congratulations Patriots and Patriot fans, you are still undefeated. You seem to have the single most complete team since the salary cap was instituted. Nothing seems like it can stop you…until the Football Gods inevitably intervene.
Lets just hope the injury bug that has seemed to miss this team does not strike anytime soon…and isn’t brought upon by a “Bounty Bowl” III in the future.
