Good Game

Despite the disappointing result, I did enjoy the rare opportunity of attending a Patriots' game last night. At 36 degrees, it was a bit cold, but the game stayed exciting until the final pass, tipped for an interception.

Gotta give Manning a lot of credit, he managed to make something out of nothing on several occasions, while the Patriots' offense did a lot of making nothing out of something (yet still managed to stay in the game). On the rare night when Adam Vinatieri missed 2 field goals, the Pats just failed to capitalize.

In any case, it was a lot of fun just to be there and be part of the crowd. I felt a little bit like Alypius in the Coliseum at times! Upside: Maggie will be happy, and the Patriots upcoming schedule is such that there seems little standing between them and the Playoffs. Hopefully, by then they'll have it all together. Super Bowl? A drunk and disappointed fan asked me on the way out. We'll see. I think the Colts and the Bears will have something to say about that.

I will resist the urge to say neener neener neener

really I will.


8 and 0 baby

but then we don't think that way, Coach Dungy has them playing each game as if it is the only game on their schedule.

I am not sure what was wrong with Vinatieri last night, that was more field goals than he has missed all year.
