Beantown Bloggery details the wagers. I think Bloomberg is trying to kill Menino: 42 pounds of ruggelach? I love the stuff and try to stay away from Cheryl-Ann's because, mmm, nothing beats those dried out shrunken little pastries, but 42 pounds? That's enough to induce coronaries in an entire wing of City Hall.

In any case, shame on Mr. Mayor for wussing out.... Read more

New York Giants: 2008 Super Bowl Champions [ILLUSTRATED] (Paperback)

Giants jinx! Also, could somebody please get local radio reporters to stop calling them the "New York Football Giants"? A. We all know they play in New Jersey. B. They haven't needed to be differentiated from the New York Baseball Giants for 51 years now. C. It's just stupid.

Oh, hey, the Herald has... Read more

Stupor Tuesday? Tom Menino in a Giants uniform? All because Menino wants to come up with a plan to keep drunken college students from going on a rampage IF the Patriots win?

Also, WBZ 1030? That poll about whether Bostonians would rather go to a Patriots rally or vote on Tuesday? What drugs did you take when you came up with that? It's not... Read more

UPDATE: No doubt spurred by thousands of calls from outraged Pats fans, Amazon has pulled the pre-order page down.

19-0: The Historic Championship Season of New England's Unbeatable Patriots (Paperback) - Now available for pre-order.

Via Peter N, who is aghast.

Harry hopes the book doesn't take its place in the library of other forgotten Globe books, including:

Unlikely Triumph: The Road

The New York Times throws in the towel, declares us winnahs:

Yet as the Patriots enter Sunday’s Super Bowl as heavy favorites - over the New York Giants, naturally - to win the city's sixth championship in seven years, "Not so, Boston" seems as outdated as those Pilgrims. Backward is forward, and Boston is first.

No, not where he's been the last two days, but where he buys those flowers for Gisele. Would you believe the Stop & Shop on Newport Avenue in Quincy? How else to explain the sign Anali spotted there?

So who's going to win the Super Bowl - again?!?

It's one-stop shopping at Boston Sports Media Watch, where Bruce Allen compiles all the links.

Soxaholix asks, strictly hypothetically, of course:

If I were given a chance to manipulate historic events, would I willingly sacrifice the Pats 19-0 season in exchange for a guaranteed Red Sox World Series victory in 2008?

But what would Bill Swerski's Super Fans say?... Read more

Looks like the Jags were built for losing.

Yowza! Angela explains what those numbers mean for you people just arriving on the shuttle from Neptune (Vince provides some after-the-fact liveblogging).

Although, to the Rozzie folks now shooting off fireworks: Dudes, maybe wait until after the Super Bowl?

Exclusive pre- and post-game field access, plus some playoff tickets, to make up for the station's loss of what it had thought was exclusive rights to broadcast the Patriots game.

By - 12/28/07 - 7:01 pm

What do you mean we can only see the Pats game on four stations tomorrow? What's wrong with the other stations?

By - 12/26/07 - 5:16 pm

CBS AND NBC to carry game against the Giants. ABC, PBS just give up all pretensions of caring.

Jay Fitzgerald hears from a blog reader of his now living in Madagascar - the guy now has a satellite radio that lets him get NPR and he wonders if he'll be able to get Patriots games:

... Imagine sitting on a lawn chair in Madagascar, sipping Three Horses Beer and listening to Gil Santos and Gino Cappelletti call a Pats game. Talk about

Kristen sure wishes so:

... They're so good at doing their talking on the field, as it were, but you just know that they let loose occasionally and I would LOVE to hear it. Just once. Especially Rodney. 'Cause you know Rodney was preachin'. After that 4th down stop at the goal line? ...
