Ok, I can finally talk about it… perhaps that will help me get over it.
At the Superbowl, I had a great time hanging out with some Giants fans before the game. It was a pretty good crowd, and everyone got along.
The only people with whom I exchanged an unkind word were two Pats fans who walked in wearing 19-0 shirts.
You do not anger the gods like that… (nor do you disrespect a team that frankly looks a lot like the 2001 Patriots).
Back before the gods stopped punishing the Sox, I used to say “we’re the 1918 World Champs, and nobody can ever take that from us.”
I guess that I can now say that the Patriots went 18-1, and nobody can ever take that away from us.
I’d like to send a big ass-hat award to Bob Kraft for angering the football gods by filing a trademark application for 19-0 , the perfect season.. (Thank you for the correction, Bob). That was as stupid as the Steelers reserving their hotel rooms in New Orleans before the 2001 AFC Championship game.
If anyone has one of those flashy things that they used on Men In Black, I’d like to borrow it to erase all memories of Feb. 3, 2008.
And for cryin’ out loud, will people STOP saying that the Pats tried to patent or copyright 19-0? It was a trademark registration. There is a big difference.
Ugh… congratulations to the Giants… they earned it. Nobody believed in them, nobody believed in their QB, they fought the whole way on the road, and the Patriots didn’t come out and play them like they respected them. The Patriots deserved that loss. And if this is the football equivalent of the 1986 World Series, Matt Light is the new Bill Buckner. That stupid bum missed way too many blocks all post-season and played like a drunk rookie in the Superbowl. Well, not just then… pretty much for as long as I have watched him act like a turnstile instead of a left tackle.

Yeah, every now and then. Of course, every other time you screw us. If Belichick doesn’t cut Light in the off season, I’m not wearing my Pats jersey on opening day.
Okay, there, I talked about it. Can everyone shut up now?
