Astroid 2002 AJ129 is set to narrowly miss Planet Earth at around 9:30 p.m. the night of February 4th. Another event happening on February 4th? Super Bowl LII.
With the two NFL franchises regarded to have some of the most obnoxious fans in the league, set to square off, neutral fans are actually rooting for the astroid rather than the Eagles or Patriots winning.

Welp, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’ll be rooting for an asteroid to hit Minneapolis for the Eagles/Patriots game. #WorstSuperBowlEver

Looking ahead to the Super Bowl: Go…Asteroid?

The Eagles being on the cusp of their first Super Bowl ever but not being able to accomplish it because Earth gets obliterated by an asteroid would be very on brand for this city https://t.co/08kmKBqXXH

If the apocalypse is what it takes to stop another Pats Super Bowl win, then bring on the asteroid https://t.co/xpROw7YGX3

I am so torn. I don’t know whether to root for the Eagles, the Patriots, or a giant asteroid to take us all out.

With a kickoff time of 6:30 p.m., the astroid should arrive sometime during the start of the 4th quarter, right before Brady makes his comeback. Perfect timing.
