Where I come from they tend to root for the NY teams. My mom likes to stir the pot, though, by telling everyone at Church or work that her daughter is from Boston, so just is dying to see New England win the trophy again.

Actually, I told her, I really didn't have a dog in this fight. New England has won enough, and besides, it's easier on the city when the fans don't have something to rampage over*.


*Interesting bit of trivia: more people have been killed in Boston due to rowdy sports fan activity than have been killed during the so-called Paris Intifada. In all fairness, however, one has to add that more people have been killed by Parisian police wrongdoing than by the Boston Police.
