It’s every Indiana resident’s territorial right to despise the New England Patriots.
However, it’s become evident that the urge to roll one’s eyes at the sight of something as simple as a hooded sweatshirt has made it across state lines.
The Pats are America’s Team, as in America’s Most Hated Team.
And it’s not even close.
A combination of factors contribute to this distinction. Most are traced to the collective arrogance of the New England franchise and its minions, people unaware that in a matter of days six different NFL franchises (and eight teams) will have won Super Bowls more recently than their heroes.
