Again, With The Occupation?

2012 Looking Like DeJa Vu All Over Again

Are you overcome with a feeling of deja vu, all over again? If you're like me (and I know I am), you might be. Just four short years ago, in 2008, some giants from New York won an epic contest over some patriots, despite the fact the patriots were favored. And it's, like, happening again.

In 2008, the patriots, who had been a high-scoring portrait in prosperity and had won every contest in which they'd found themselves, were upset by a small clan of Wall Streeters who (by calling themselves "giants," among other tricks) had convinced people they were more powerful than they actually were and had sneaked into the big contest. It seems the patriots, when it counted most, just weren't into it... and their usually-full-throated voice was very quiet that day. Meanwhile, the giants, backed by the power and resources of New York, made a thunderous racket. They proclaimed they had all the answers, and (being much more motivated) stole the victory.

This made these "giant" New Yorkers mistakenly believe they had a mandate over the patriots, and now, four years later, they're still fighting the same battle... and, despite being the weaker force, might pull it off again.

As the contest grows late, though, the patriots still have a chance to make the game come out right. But they have to get serious, and focus.

The patriots have to be wary of these sneaky giants who like to occupy places like Wall Street... I mean, they'll try to convince everyone THEY are the real patriots, when they clearly are battling to radically transform the whole game! They'll say they're against Wall Street itself, even when it's obvious Wall Street is behind them! By disguising themselves as patriots, they hope to get the actual patriots to throw them the ball by mistake.

The patriots have to show up. They have to make their presence known. They have to make it clear they will not again be kept silent by this clamoring minority from the Big Apple.

The patriots have to connect. When the game's on the line, they can't drop the ball or turn it over to their opponents. They are the superior team, and they have to act like it.

Superior or not, the patriots have to be realistic about the uphill climb they face. The giants have all the cards stacked in their favor: they've got the media as cheerleaders, they've hand-picked the refs, and their fans (outnumbered two-to-one) get to scream their heads off and hurl insults while the patriots' fans are required by their own code of character to maintain a respectful decorum (insulting only each other, apparently). The patriots' fans have to work hard to earn their ticket to the game, and (due to redistribution of tickets) each patriot fan must pay for the admission of at least two opposing fans!

Look, though no less a luminary than Clint Eastwood recently appeared on the TV contraption (as a paid spokesperson) to declare "halftime in America," the truth is this: if the giants steal another big one this November, it's lights-out for the patriots. Game over.
