But it was also fitting he was 1/2 second from being the most talked about tight end in football history. That last pass.... if....

Ahh well. Thems the breaks!

When I saw Gronk out there I knew that he wasn't the intended receiver.

However, the threat of Gronk is enough to require that he be double teamed, meaning somebody else will be left open.

Use of the phrase "Belichickmen"? Check.
Red Sox reference? Check.

But the game itself, taken from an objective viewpoint as a football fan, was a great one. That's the good news. The bad news is, because it was so great, and because the winner was a New York team, it will be replayed many times on ESPN Classic, etc., in the years to come. Ugh.

Perhaps on better note. I believe all's was quiet in Boston, right? I hope it shows that we are not Vancouver when we lose so they can cool down with the +2,000 man army.

We won't have to waste taxpayer resources, not to mention unnecessarly inconveniencing people trying to go about their normal lives, holding another needless "victory parade".

The bad news - none of the Patriots players will have their outrageous "salaries" cut for failing to win the big game.
