In honor of the FINAL installment of the Twilight Saga I decided that my first Lets Get Ready to Rumble! post should between the men that stole Bella Swan’s heart: Edward Cullen VS Jacob Black!
A tale as old as time…
An extremely awkward and downright ordinary looking teenage girl must choose between the two supernatural beings that stole her still beating heart. Edward Cullen, a sparkling vampire with some awesome hair or Jacob Black, an alpha werewolf who seems to have always misplaced this shirt. Imagine having to make that decision along with what to wear at prom and whether you want side bangs or blunt bangs. Being a teenage girl in Forks Washington is really really hard!
Now, and I am truly sorry for you Team Jacob members, but I do not think it was really that difficult for Bella to choose. It was always Edward! But, I did on occasion feel bad for puppy dog Jake, like I always say ‘Always a Bridesmaid never the Bride’. Well until he disturbingly imprints on Bella and Edwards just born child! Sorry Stephenie Meyer, that was just weird.
But, just because Bella had it easy does not mean the world did! Team Edward VS Team Jacob is a battle that will continue through out the ages. Here are the boys playing cards.
- Sparkling Vampire
- Beautiful color eyes
- Can read minds
- Graduated high school (several times)
- Does not pressure you to have sex
- WANTS to get married
- Comes from money
- Enjoys classic lit
- Plays piano
- Kick ass hair
Team Jacob Stats:
- Alpha Were-Wolf
- Likes his women to have a beating heart
- Extra Warm
- Comes with a pack
- Great with cars
- Drives a Motorcycle
- Has a tattoo
- Loyal and devoted
- Good with kids
- Fights with vampires
- Always seems to be shirtless
Twilight fans can argue till there faces turn blue and pigs fly about who is the better young man. I will hand it to Jacob, though. He was a stand up guy in New Moon and Bella was a twit for leading him on. I feel a little heartache for the kid, but I think it is pretty clear that he is meant to be in the friend zone FOREVER. Even Meyer thought little of Jacob until her editor told her to take a second look at a possible love triangle.
I am throwing it out there but I think Meyer is Team Edward 100% and so am I! Jacob you were a worthy challenger but it is time to back away with your tail between your legs. I would have Edward Cullen stuck my blood any time. A classic romantic, Edward makes every girl in Forks, Washington swoon. He maybe a little bit old fashioned for this liberal feminist but there is just something about his sparkling skin, funky color eyes, and cold body temp that makes me want to climb on his back like a spider money and fly through the tree tops. Bella you are one lucky lady! I truly hope that FOREVER really means FOREVER. And Jacob, I am so happy you imprinted even if it was on a new born child!
Check out the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in theaters now!
I will be making my trip to theaters some time next week…opening weekend is for TwiHards and I do not feel like getting dirty looks when I uncontrollably laugh during serious moments, so stay tuned for that.
