I am issuing a brief, pre-emptive congratulations to the fans of the soon to be Super Bowl champion Patriots. I don’t think this game will be close. The Giants are very talented, but the Patriots throw the ball six yards at a time. The short passes are nearly impossible to stop because of the threat of Randy Moss.
So congratulations ahead of time, New England. You can revel in the knowledge that:
1.) I’m less of a fan of the NFL because of this season. I like it 3 or 4% less.
2.) The endless references to this Patriots team over the next 30 years will have an untold negative effect on my personal well being.
3.) I hate you. . . soooo much.
4.) Something broke in the space/time continuum the night of the Ravens game. The Patriots were supposed to lose that game. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit to find out that Belichick’s grandson actually possesses a time machine and he has been sneaking back in time to help his grandfather call the right plays.
5.) Tom Brady brought his hair stylist to the Super Bowl with him. I wish I were making that up.
6.) Our opinion of Brady hasn’t changed. A good player who is accurate and protects the football. Manning is still better in our opinion. Both players have many seasons left and we are content to judge them in 2015. The Colts have a much younger team than the Patriots and I hope that we are merely witnessing the brief overlap between two dynasties.
7.) Patriots 31 – Giants 23.
