Spinozist Karma in Super Bowl XL
by Christian Y. Cardall
[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.
