Super Bowl summary

I was happy to see the Giants knock down the Patriots last night.

In the weeks leading up the Super Bowl, I was getting real sick of all the talk about how great the Patriots were and how they will be regarded in history -- as if they had already won the game!

As a Yankee fan, I admit that I'm something of a hypocrite when it comes to the Patriots -- I was just sick of seeing them win all the time.

Speaking of the Yankees, on Mike & Mike this morning there was an interesting discussion: how does the Patriots going 18-0 and then losing the Super Bowl compare to the Yanks dropping their 3-0 lead to the Red Sox in the 2004 ALCS?

Really it's apples and oranges. They were just trying to find a way to play up the New York-Boston rivalry. And I don't think there is any question the Yankees transgression was worse. But it makes for fun conversation.

An interesting analogy but I'm not so sure the Yankees loss was worse, at least in public opinion. Sure the Yankees had to lose 4 consecutive games to lose it so it was a more monumental failure. But it's already ancient history outside of New York and Boston. On the other hand, the Patriots loss will be remembered FOREVER as the 18-0 team that lost their shot at immortality in the final minute of the Super Bowl! The Patriots will NEVER live this down, ever.

Great game!!!

You're lucky you're a Dallas fan or I'd be letting you have it. Oh wait, they lost too!!!
