Lets enter the best moments of 2013 in New York where the sun beams down on America first. We have a metropolitan dog as the bottom slice of a sports superfan supreme sandwich. In between the two layers of sandwich bread which is topped by superfan Lady Liberty we have a vibrant liberty-loving sports culture and there was an abundant number of choices of toppings or fillers if you will; today I'll show you how passionate National Football League fans are about their NFL sandwiches.
Leading off is a metropolitan dog who really loves his sports. he's a Mets dog! He's also a jetropolitan as in a New York Jets fan.
As is true in New York and many other NFL cities the superfans at Sunday games have no problem showing their true feelings.
Green Bay is the little town of the NFL and their hats of choice include a quarter wheel of some kind of holey orange cheese from holey cows I suppose.
In New England they wear the red, white and blue while standing tall. This Patriots superfan wore a pile of red, white and blue in support of his hometown team.
Animals are well represented in the NFL and one fan chose to show orange and black stripes which are typical colors in the Queen City of Cincinnati, Ohio.
The San Francisco 49ers went to the Super Bowl last February and their fans showed abundant creativity as did this fan with lava coming out of his head.
Rats are something no NFL team would advertise loudly unless it was funny; these New Orleans Saints fans found humor in the vermin and the rat hats have an animal appeal that's hard to replicate with any other animal.
Oakland has its rebels; all of them consider themselves rebels it looks like. The silver and the black are crisp and cool colors and reflect the chilly Oakland weather. This fan has three ideas about the Raiders.
The cheese has an appeal in Green Bay and so does the deer eating cheese; dairy is big in Wisconsin and there are deer everywhere in this rural state. Dear deer. Please feed your deer, y'all.
Masks aren't typical in Houston unless you're a bank robber or a Texans fan. Their fans have adopted the mask as a uniform to support their Texans. Who are those masked men?
This Texans' fan bag of shame reflected the Texans horrible 2013 season which, though, resulted in them receiving the first choice in the 2014 NFL draft.
The bears--the ones we hear of in the deep woods--are a fightin' sort of animal that won't ever be accused of being timid and neither was this Chicago Bears fan who brought out the passion in this photo.
Cheese is funny as a symbol and so--in a derivative sort of humor--is the grater. The grated cheese made the whole meal come together in this game as the Lions grated the cheese heads by thirty points thus putting a topping on their victory potatoes.
As I mentioned this sports superfan supreme sandwich begins and ends in New York. Without the liberty that shines on us and without he top layer of the sandwich we'd be heating chaos stew.
Shine on Lady Liberty!
