As hard as it may seem to a lot of people, I was really rooting for the Patriots last night. To be honest, I don’t like either team really, but I just hate the Giants more. The first reason is that I am a Cowboys fan. How can I cheer for a team that I want to lose every week of the season? If you were a Chiefs fan, would you root for the Raiders or Broncos in the Super Bowl? If you’re a Mizzou fan, do you cheer for
On the other hand, there was a little perverse glee in watching Belichick do a tense post game press conference. It is kind of funny that the Patriots were trying to patent the “19-0 the Perfect Season” slogan. It was especially fun after reading this column by the Sports Guy Bill Simmons. I am normally a fan of his unless he is writing about the Patriots or the Red Sox. He recently wrote a column comparing the Patriots to one of the best Celtic teams ever (1985-86). He did this before the season was over! Talk about karma!
Anyway, with the loss of the Cowboys and the Giants as Super Bowl champions, I can’t wait for the playoffs next year.
