This year’s Super Bowl party in Jerusalem: same same but different

American expats in Jerusalem have a good place to watch this year’s Super BowlFirst Station, the ex-train station opposite Liberty Bell Park that has been turned into “a place for food & culture.”

Excuse me, did I say expats? Because according to the event’s promotional material, Jerusalem residents need only really get excited about current Patriots:

You may notice that only one of the participating teams is featured on this year’s ad. At least last year’s ad bothered to depict both:

I like to imagine that faced with the challenge of promoting two Western teams, the organizers simply couldn’t decide — so they opted to put the NY/NJ stadium front and center.

Glad to see east coast bias alive and well in the Holy Land. יאללה שלכים. Every year in Jerusalem.
