So football yesterday sucked. The Chargers lost. Then the Packers lost. That would've been a FUN Super Bowl, y'know? Chargers vs. Packers?!? Le awesome. Now we're all reduced to rooting for the Giants to spoil the Patriots' perfect year.

The Packers had chances but didn't capitalize on them, and they didn't play as well as is usual. Defense, particularly against the pass, was uncharacteristically sluggish, and special teams were a bit off on returns (and punting, dear lord). Too many 3-and-outs. Maybe the defense was tired by all their time on the field (though if I had to play in -1 to -4 degree weather with -24 windchill, I'd prefer to be on the field, getting "warm" through exertion!). They were truly lucky that Tynes missed those field goals in regulation. I couldn't *believe* he missed that fairly short one at the end of the game. What a relief!! A short-lived one, of course, since he had to go and *redeem* himself in overtime (the nerve!).

It was a great run though--13-3 and through 2 of 3 weeks of playoffs.

Still going with the Patriots! Although I can definitely see why the rest of the world hates the Patriots.

You're the exception. ;) :) I don't HATE them, they're just so *smug*.

Tom Brady is good. But people like the underdogs.

My husband keeps saying that if the Patriots win another Superbowl, he wants to name our firstborn (regardless of gender) Brady. Um, riiiiiiight.

I'm kind of a proxy Giants fan now, I've gotta say, since my parents moved out there. Plus Giants stadium is in Secaucus, and, well, how can I not root for the team who plays in my grandparents' home town?

I didn't think you liked football at all! E, you just keep the mystery alive. ;)

PS, thanks for the Xmas card! Will you let me know your contact # for the next time you're in the US?
