For those of you that care, I had the flu this week, I am currently burning 100, better than I ever did in school. (not really, but its funny) I even took a sick day at work (Benefits FTW!)
But I’m not here to talk about The Stylin’, profilin’, limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ n’ dealin’ son of a gun!
The one and only Ric Flair, the GOAT of all fake sports sport- er Professional Wrestling.
Thats right boys and girls, the one and only.
Apparently the Nature Boy has gotten in trouble with going to talk to the Niners last weekend before Green Bay, and now the Niners play his hometown Charlotte N’Wt Carolina Panthers.
But now Steve Smith, amoung others on the Panthers are upset that Ric Flair picked the Niners to beat the Panthers, and has Burned the Golden Gate Bridge for his fans in Carolina.
But here is what you are missing.
Ric Flair has been a Season Ticket Holder since Day 1 for the Panthers,
Here lies the issue.
Ric Flair is so old, he actually won the NWA title in front of the ACTUAL 49ers!
The Panthers have not been around that long, Football has been the number 2 sport in Carolina for decades, but its a STRONG number 2. They have sold out EVERY home game since 2002, My own family has fandom that spreads across the country, with the Panthers a decade and a half away- My Mom was a Redskins fan (since they were the closest team to Carolina, since she Predates the Falcons) my brother Jack is a Cowboys fans, cause there is something wrong with him.
I grew up a Niners fan. I was a Notre Dame fan, growing up, one of my earliest memories was the Catch- where a team beat Dallas and made my brother cry (don’t tell him I said that) and the QB was from Notre Dame???
I had me a team People!
I personally got out of the whole “two favorite teams” issue really easily.
John York. Man is an asshole, plain and simple. He ruined the team, its legacy and drove away many fans. Including me.
So I just got one team. But lets be honest with you. Ric Flair has got more going on to care about how shitty his teams owner has been, guy worked for Uncle Eric AND the Pizza Guy. So he can keep his fandom.
He’s Ric Flair. I’m fine with him pulling for the Niners, and I know he’s got his tickets- even though the home playoff game SOLD OUT IN THREE MINUTES (take that Green Bay, Cincy and Indy)
He can do no wrong in my eyes, and he’s still the MAN. I can understand the anger from Steve Smith, lets do this, use it as motivation.
And when you score a touchdown, go to the goalpost and give it a chop- we might just break the stadium.
Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park, but it has the longest line.
