Simmons: It wasn’t so bad

Epic Patriots homer and Grantland writer Bill Simmons should have had a bad time in Indianapolis. A week in the home of the dreaded Colts topped off with a second Super Bowl loss to Eli Manning should have crushed him. Maybe we’re all getting older and a touch less testy or just maybe Bill found a little Hoosier magic made the trip worthwhile:

Here’s the point: Whenever I think about Super Bowl XLVI, I’m always going to think to myself, That day wasn’t a total catastrophe … that’s the same day we went to theHoosiers gym! Which made it a brilliant play. I’m adding the “Good Karma Game Day Swerve” to my arsenal for any monstrously important Boston sporting event. It made yesterday 10 percent more bearable.
