Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Frankly, I'm shocked

I've decided I'm happier that the Cheaters lost than angrier that Eli Manning is a Super Bowl-winning quarterback and an undeserving MVP and that an NFC East team won the championship before the Eagles did. But I'm still shocked. I'm still not entirely sure how it happened (and, to be honest, I didn't watch the whole game). Surprisingly enough, if you rush the passer effectively, you can shut down a good offense. Who knew?

So in the end, the Cheaters get theirs. And as I saw Randy Moss and Junior Seau looking like they were going to cry, I thought, "Yeah, fuck you guys." I don't want to hate the Cheaters, because I admire a lot of what they do, but as many long-time winners get, they started to get a bit full of themselves, so it's nice to see them taken down a peg. Is this the beginning of the end of the New England dynasty?

I'm also not worried about New Jersey dominating the league, because I'm still not all that impressed with them. They could easily miss the playoffs next year. We'll see.

Of course, now Mercury Morris will be even more insufferable. Please, national media, stop calling him up to get quotes from him. Man, what asshole. Maybe next year no team will be undefeated late in the year, so nobody talks to Morris and his geriatric cronies.

Anyway, good job, New Jersey. I'm stunned.

I don't care about NE or the Giants, but I always support the underdogs. That superbowl was fantastic fun.

I'm very sleepy...

PS Did you know the 1948 Cleveland Browns went the season undefeated? None of those commentators did.

DC: For whatever reason, the NFL doesn't count the All-American Football Conference statistics, even though they accepted the Browns (and, I think, the 49ers) into the NFL. The only pro league whose stats count in the NFL are the AFL's. I never heard anyone say that the Dolphins are the only undefeated team in PROFESSIONAL history, just NFL history. There is a difference. Hence, analysts today ignore the AAFC, whether they know the Browns went undefeated or not. Maybe they shouldn't, but they do.

18-1. Tee hee.
GO, GIANTS. Hey, I've been rooting for them for over 40 years.
Actually, it seems as though the damn closed roof DID hurt the Giants, with about a half dozen of them cramping up; that's when the Pats scored the go-ahead touchdown.

I have NO idea why they closed the roof. It's raining pretty steadily today (Monday), but it wasn't in the forecast yesterday, and even if it was, it's not like we get torrential downpours here. What's the point of playing in the desert in January if you're going to close the roof? It was a bit chilly, but that just sucks. They might as well play it in a dome all the time if they're going to punk out just because of the threat of rain.

They may have been gun-shy about the rain potential after last year's washout in Miami.
