First off, congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on winning their first ever Super Bowl! It was an amazing game. That’s all you need say about it.
Both Katie and I were rooting for the Eagles because we singularly despise Tom Brady. But it became less about rooting against the Patriots and more about rooting for the Eagles because it was just such a fun game.
Nathan even got into it. In his own odd little way. He asked if the team we were rooting for were the villains.
You need to understand that Nathan loves villains. Joker, Penguin, Harley Quinn, Darth Vader, Balthazar Bratt, Lex Luthor, etc. Basically, the more villainous, the better.
So, yes, we told him the Eagles were “villains” and he cheered along with us. The pain point, of course, was having to call the Patriots “good guys.” But that’s the price you pay for a five-year-old’s allegiance.
