We have all probably seen or heard some of the strange things sports fans will do in order to give their favorite team a little bit more positive juju. It could be something as simple as wearing your favorite players jersey or something a little bit more extravagant. But, would you eat poop?
I can honestly say that eating any kind of poop is not something that has ever crossed my mind. Eating something that has already been chewed, digested, and passed is not only disgusting, but not anything any normal person would do. The thought of it turns my stomach.
But, what if I were to tell you that if you were to eat poop, it would ensure your favorite team a Super Bowl victory? Would that change your mind?
As a Dallas Cowboys fan, I would love nothing more to see them bring home another Lombardi trophy. Fortunately, I'm old enough to remember their Super Bowl success in the early 90s, but younger generations don't know that feeling.
But, there is no way in H… E… Double hockey sticks I would ever, and I mean ever, eat any kind of fecal matter to make that happen.
You may be wondering why this thought even occurred to me. Well, after the Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl nearly a week ago, one of their fans celebrated by eating horse poop. It's not the way I would've celebrated, but to each their own.
I think I would've been a little bit more understanding if this Philly fan had lost a bet and was paying up, or if he was doing it to break their Super Bowl drought, but not to celebrate. BARF!
I can't say that I'm completely surprised either though. Philadelphia Eagle fans are some of the strangest fans in the entire NFL. I don't know of any other fans who would destroy their city after just winning the Super Bowl, and I would hate to think what would've happened if they would have lost to the New England Patriots.
Honestly, I'm happy I'm a Dallas Cowboys fan, even though they are on a Super Bowl drought. Our team may be heavily scrutinized and hated by the vast majority of other organizations and fans, but at least we are not out there eating horse poop.
Surely I'm not alone.
