Patriots, Redcoats and the American Revolution

Matt Bonner breaks down the Super Bowl as only the Red Rocket could break it down. From our radio show:

Chris Ryan: You know, the Patriots probably shouldn’t have won against the Ravens.

Matt Bonner: Yeah, and the American patriots shouldn’t have beaten the British in the American Revolution, but we did. Now there’s a professional football team called the Patriots, and they’re going to do the same thing. How’s that for a metaphor?

Chris Ryan: It doesn’t work. The Americans had muskets and pitch forks and were a rag-tag army.

Matt Bonner: If you told General John Stark that 230 years from now, there’s going to be a professional football named after your cause, the Patriots, and they’re going to take down the New York Giants in the Super Bowl the same way you’re taking down the British, would you believe him? Now that’s inspiration for you.
