Put the X in Specs

In professional foot-ball’s “Super Bowl”, the New England Patriots, owned by a man who vocally supports a rich, horrible billionaire authority figure, defeated the Atlanta Falcons, vocally supported by an owner who is a rich, horrible billionaire authority figure.  This brings to a close America’s most recent sporting season; until such time as the baseball season begins and we can briefly pretend that our team has a chance of winning, we must unite under the only banner that can still unify us.  I refer, of course, to making lists of athletes with amusing names.
