We're You Ready For Some Football?
Well, that's better. Last year's Superbowl was a major yawnfest, but not so this year. None of my teams were in the game, but I was rooting for the Patriots since it would have been cool to see the perfect cap to a perfect season. Everyone expected the Pats to trounce the Giants, and everyone was wrong. This was a great game. Both defences were virtually unstoppable, especially the Giants' who beat the living crap out of Tom Brady, and both offences were nearly flawless. It was a very low scoring game, and I expect there are a lot of people in Vegas who lost major cash over the spread. In my opinion Bill Belachick blew the game when the Pats had a chance to get a field goal from 42 yards out, but instead tried to convert on 4th and 13, and blew it. Those three points could have made the difference. But, that being said, the Giants thoroughly earned their rings last night. They played a marvellous game, and the game winning play occurred with 1 second left on the clock. No matter who you were rooting for, it was a great game, and a worthy Superbowl. Even Tom Petty's halftime performance was fun and classy. Well done, NFL.
Now back to my sportsless life.
