Manning Schmanning

Eli, Peyton.... you just can't cut it. You're good, but you ain't a Boston caliber football player. You don't have the gorgeous straight white teeth of Tom Brady, the brute force of Randy Moss, or the delightful personality of Teddy Bruschi. You're good, you're just not GREAT.

I am not a football fan. I can barely watch a game without napping somewhere in the second inning quarter. I just don't like the game and don't get the whole behemoth players smashing into each other. But I appreciate a team, any time, that ends it's season undefeated. It rarely happens. In fact, in football it hasn't happened since 1972. But it happened tonight to the New England Patriots.

Say what you will about Boston, we have frigging great sports teams, and we have an even better fan base. First the Red Sox win the World Series, now the Patiots play an undefeated season and are on to the Superbowl, and the Celtics have finally gotten out of their generational doldrums and are playing great ball. We're just waiting on the Bruins to revive and we'll take over the entire field of professional sports. Heh.

It's been crazy in Boston the past few days. The reporters on TV could barely contain themselves about the game. It was shown on FOUR channels tonight. Both CBS and ABC carried the entire game. Let us just hope that MLB gets the hint and stops requiring payment in order to enjoy a baseball game, the moneygrubbing asshats. Everyone is talking about 'the game' and the grocery stores had a run on Doritos and Popcorn. I'm betting the pizza delivery guys made a small fortune tonight in tips. They certainly were busy.

I'm happy that the Patriots won this last game of the season, but of course that means even more football to endure. Oh well, it's only another 6 weeks or so until SPRING TRAINING! I can't wait!

What an awesome team...what an awesome game last night...and Brady is the BEST QB in the game.

why don't you brag about the patriots being cheaters or having a known steroid/hgh guy on the team? or stick to something you know about.

From a lifelong Green Bay Packer fan -- wow. Even we Cheeseheads have to admit that the team we love to hate has (in fluent Wisconsineze) done good -- real, real good. Can I still love to hate Randy Moss? Please?

Love those anonymous commenters!
Pat aren't cheaters per se. They were doing what WAS common practice around league until all teams were told to discontinue taping. They (stupidly) didn't comply with new league rules. If they were truly trying to cheat wouldn't they have covertly taped using individual(s) in stands?
Anyone, football fan or not, in the New England area is very proud of their accomplishment especially those who remember the team years ago, pooly managed and coached, that absolutely sucked.
So anonymous, if you think Margalit should stick to something she knows about perhaps you should at least use your name!!
(probably a New York fan-it's been a sad year for you!)

All I ask is that someone, Please, someone anywhere, remember that Randy Moss is a product of Marshall University. Huntington, West-by-Gawd-Virginia. Go Herd!
