The Way It Had To Be

Brady and Manning. New England and Indy. The Pats and The Colts. You get the feeling it had to be this way. Here’s the problem. If you equate this to the Sox v. Patriots … the Pats are the Yankees.


Most of the country is sick of my team. They’re sick of us winning. 3 Super Bowls in the last 5 years. Constantly in the hunt. For a while it was a great underdog story. Now … people want another team to get a shot at it. You have no idea how weird that is to say. We New England fans are living through an of sports team dominance that we never even imagined. It’s still kind of unreal. I think we’re all afraid that suddenly, poof it’s all going to be gone. One misstep, one bad game, one wrong move, and we’ll be watching our grandkids wondering whether the Pats or the Sox or the Celtics or the Bruins will ever win again.

So I am going to enjoy this while it lasts. Today’s game is going to be absolutely insane. There’s no way it could be anything but. And I’ll be sitting at the bar, with a couple hundred other Pats fans, hanging on every single play. If I don’t post for a few days, forgive me, I’m probably just recovering.

Nothing but respect for the pats win or lose. For the most part a classy organization who is run like a business and thats why they win. Although its hard to compare baseball to football, i would say pats and yanks do not equate, the pats do not spend more money then anyone else, and this is from someone who roots for the yanks.

So enjoy the game and enjoy the dominance because these things don’t last in the NFL

Hopefully, a good night’s sleep will erase the sadness I feel right now.

Damn Colts. Damn Payton Manning.
