Normally this time of year I ask who to cheer for, but my friend the Bills fan has made it clear that I am not allowed to cheer for the Patriots, my unfortunate fondness for Julian Edelman and his fondness for Gronk notwithstanding.

So I have my gloriously bright red lipstick and two bottles of Becks ready :)

Go Falcons!
