Spinozist Karma in Super Bowl XL

[UPDATE: Post-game comment below.]

I don’t watch sports hardly at all—they're more fun to play than to watch. But I do try to watch the championship games in most sports.

I usually don’t have strong feelings for either team. I do have a general sympathy for the underdog (mostly in hopes of an exciting game), and also a mild prejudice for teams from the west since I grew up in California. Both of these factors point to the Seahawks, but what really puts the gods on their side is their sweet uni’s: can’t beat the Spinozist monochrome color scheme. If they win I may even add fluorescent green accents.

UPDATE: Well, Seattle couldn’t get it done; in the end an interception and a successful gimmick play by the Steelers did them in. Imagine how bad it would’ve been without the Spinozist color scheme karma.


The silver lining of the loss is that I don’t feel any obligation to add fluorescent green accents to the template. And that, win or lose, the color scheme still looks good on the Sea Gals.

DAMN YOUR COLOR SCHEME!!! If you would have put the green highlights BEFORE the game they would have won!

LOL, Rusty! I wondered if this updated post would elicit some unfavorable responses, but I must say yours is not the one I expected...
