Ways to describe the NFC Championship game
Wow, this is huge. It was written in the stars from the day the Seahawks hired Pete Carroll and here we are. As a football fan I could not be more thrilled for the epic showdown we get to bear witness to this Sunday. As a 49ers fan: #%&*%$#@#%&&!
So if you are as anxious about this match-up as I am, you are probably looking for ways to describe the magnitude of the event to the Norms. Here are a few ideas to help put the game in perspective for non-49ers fans...but at this stage in the season you probably shouldn't be interacting with those folks anyways.
Ali vs Frazier - although a bit cliche, still a classic
Superman vs Darkseid - Hello ladies
Luke vs Vader - Hello more ladies
Leonidas vs Xerxes I - Good one for the PhD candidate studying history
Rocky vs Apollo Creed - For Niners fan residing in Philadelphia who are forced to interact with residents of Philadelphia
Godzilla vs Chimera - For the classic Japanese cinema aficionado
Pepsi vs Coke - For the non-sports fan
Edison vs Tesla - For the Redditor
Wolverine vs Sabretooth - For the kid who grew up watching the Uncanny X-Men cartoon...I wish they'd bring that back.
Optimus Prime vs Megatron - See above and replace "Uncanny X-Men cartoon" with "Transformers"
Crystal Geyser vs Aquafina - What? I dunno...
Kramer vs Kramer - Not a Seinfeld reference
Jerry vs Newman - A Seinfeld reference
Hatfields vs McCoys - Yay! More bloody historical references!
Hulk Hogan vs Andre the Giant - "I don't like to speak badly of people. I have grown up thinking and being told that if you cannot say something nice about someone, you should not say anything at all. But I must break that rule in this case because I hate Hulk Hogan very much. He is a big ugly goon and I want to squash his face." - Andre the Giant. Well said my friend, well said.
Tupac vs. Biggie - On second thought...this one makes me sad
Juan Marichal vs Johnny Roseboro - This was kind of one-sided
India vs Pakistan (in cricket...probably shouldn't delve too much into geopolitical relations)
Latrell Sprewell vs PJ Carlesimo - For the Bay Area basketball fan
Children vs Naps - The highest form of dislike
Conan vs Leno - More for the non-sports fan
Leonardo DaVinci vs Michaelangelo - Mike called Leo a horse-modeller! It was on after that
Tom vs Jerry - a good for the kids...Do kids even watch Tom & Jerry anymore? Any members of the Nation out there, with kids, want to weigh in on this?
Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus - my personal favorite
