I'm sure all of Eli's interceptions are just a punishment for my obnoxious behavior as a teenager. You see, my high school girlfriend's stepfather was a huge Buffalo Bills fan and I hated the team. I didn't get along with this Bills fan but I spent so much time over her house that I usually watched each Bills game at her house with him. Now, her stepfather and I didn't really get along and I loved to piss him off. I remember that I would sit there, next to him...in his living room and laugh each time Jim Kelley threw an interception. I'm sure I even clapped a few times.
Now that I'm older, and find myself more emotionally invested in a football team, I can't believe how I acted. Actually. I would probably do the same thing today. What I can't believe is that he let me stay in his house or come back for the next game. Right now, I would kill someone if they laughed in my face every time Eli threw an interception. There would be blood. So, I feel like The Football Gods are punishing me by having me sit through Eli throwing tons of interceptions.
Oh well, If that's the medicine I have to take then I'll take it. I'm just glad I never made fun of the Bills never winning a Super Bowl. So, I guess this is my apology to that Bills fan and to the rest of you for cursing Eli when I was a kid.
