Rooting Interests

Had dinner with my elder brother, his wife, and her friend and employer last night. They popped in at 7PM Mass at the parish–always a nice surprise. We went to a local pub/restaurant for decent food and weak service afterward. We were commiserating over what is, for him and me, a miserable football year, at least on the NFL level. The three favorite teams of my two brothers and I were a collective 2-13 heading into yesterday’s games. Add in the team for whom I would root in my last city of residence, and the marker was 2-18.

Funny enough, my team, my big brother’s team and my semi-adopted team all won yesterday. Only little brother’s squad lost. So the four teams are now batting .208. Not up to standard in any league.

Big bro is still taking the train to west to watch an in-state NFL rivalry this Fall. Have you enough info to match brothers with teams?
