A Very Falcoholic Discussion: Rooting In The Playoffs

This has been the kind of playoffs that makes you wonder if you accidentally mixed LSD in with your whiskey sour.

Seriously, who would have predicted that the conference championship in the NFC would feature the Arizona Cardinals and the Philadelphia Eagles? A crazy person, that's who! Even though I thought the Titans were set up for a surprise loss, the Giants falling to the Eagles was something I never would've seen coming.

If you're like me, it's left you wondering who you should pull for. Normally I'm not at a loss until the Super Bowl, when there's regularly games between two teams I either don't care about or completely detest (see Raiders-Bucs).

For me, the easy choice is the Cardinals. Not only did they beat us and clear out the Panthers, but they've also been one of the saddest franchises in the history of sports. When the rest of the field includes teams that have beat the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game and AFC teams that have been here recently, I don't think it's that difficult a choice.

How about you guys? Got a preference?
