I haven't had time to take all of
Sure I've watched some of the sports shows and
listened to sports radio and read a bit here and there in the paper,
but I really haven't digested what's going on.
What is going on is that our team is about to
play a game where they will either come out the victor and be regarded
the best team of all time, with the undefeated record to back it up,
or they will suffer their worst loss in the history of the
That's big, really big. (even bigger than that
annoying car dealer) I mean can you imagine just how sweet or just how
bitter this game is going to be?
I haven't had time to even think about it, I've
been too busy to contemplate all of the possibilities. Actually there
really are only two possibilities. One is a victory like none other in
NFL history, to cap off a perfect season, and their fourth Super Bowl
in 7 years. The other possibility is our team is going suffer the
worst loss ever in the history of the NFL. (I'll take the first option if
you're taking orders)
So that's it, in two days our team will either
reach the top of the tallest peak in the world, or fall all the way to
the bottom - no staying still, no going back.
So with two days to go, on a Friday night at
about 11:30, I've just been perusing the web with Sam Adams in hand,
taking as much of it in as I can.
There is the Patriots Official
site of course, boston.com and tons of You Tube video tributes to
look at. There's plenty of sports shows on my Tivo with all of the
hype leading up to the big game. And there's a walk down memory lane
of past Patriots Super Bowl wins. All of these things are helping me
take in this moment.
That and my Sam Adams,
while listening to my favorite group from high school, U2.
That's one thing I picked up on
tonight while watching some of media day on my Tivo, when Tom Brady
was asked what his favorite band was, the answer was, yes you guessed
My favorite QB ever (sorry Steve,
he just barely beats you out) on my favorite football team since birth
(up in Lawrence Mass) has the same favorite band as me, U2, whom I've
been a fan of since 1983. Now that's wicked cool.
This moment right now is a good
one, no matter how this game turns out two days from now. Great or horrible, whichever the
outcome of the big game, I want to enjoy a couple of days leading up
to it, see the sights, taste the flavor.
You too should take a moment and
breath in the air of 18-0 and enjoy some of the videos and stories
surrounding our great team.
I'm hoping that on this
Sunday Bloody Sunday, the Patriots will once again find just what they are
looking for, through intense desire and team pride, while Belichick
works in mysterious ways, to make it a beautiful day!
That would be the "Sweetest
That or it's
going to suck really bad...
But for now, I'm going to enjoy
the fact that my team is still perfect, and hated by most other teams
and their fans. (jealous) And I'm going to try to take some of this
Until now I just haven't had time
to take it all in...U2?
Bless and Go Patriots!
...Thatís just My
