As a writer and football fan, I am always excited when the NFL playoffs roll around. This annual event, which pits the best teams in the league against each other in a showdown for the championship, is always a highlight of the year.
With the playoffs just around the corner, I can’t help but get excited about all the action and drama that lies ahead. What a crazy couple of games it’s been. Like most, I’ve been laughing about the performance of good old Russell Wilson. I can’t believe how badly that trade has worked out for the Broncos. I was sad to see the Saints and Panthers go.
And honestly, I’m tired of seeing Tom Brady, dude seriously needs to go. We get it, you’re the GOAT, now just sail off, let others touch the sun. Can’t believe the Bucs made it.
So, who am I rooting for? The Ravens. There was a time where I briefly grew up in the mean streets of Baltimore and while I hated the negative influences that almost took over my life (and my family’s), I still have a soft spot for it. Plus, they are ironically the ones that took my team, the Falcons, out of Playoff contention.
So here’s to the playoffs, and all the exciting football that they bring. May we all enjoy the action and root for our favorite teams as they battle it out for the championship.
