Maybe it’s just that the Patriots aren’t in the Super Bowl, but I find myself more excited for this year’s rendition of the greatest event in sports than I’ve been in a long time. It’s fitting that the Kansas City Chiefs, who represented the AFC in Super Bowl I, will play for their second Lombardi Trophy in the league’s storied 100th season. They find themselves facing the five-time Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers, who can tie the Patriots and Steelers for both the most rings in NFL history and the most annoying fan base with a victory.

As I write this column two weeks into the winter quarter, I find myself to be infinitely smarter than I was when I arrived on a frigid Sunday two weeks earlier. Why, you ask? Because, after taking two weeks of social psychology, I have solved the most fundamental debate facing NFL fans.
