I really dislike the New England Patriots (sorry Cindy). They aren't a team that you can tolerate when they are winning, like, say, the Fastest show on turf Rams who were fun to watch or the 70s Steelers who were generally a bunch of nice guys. The Patriots are filled with arrogant jerks like Teddy Bruschi and Rodney Harrison, or insincere punks like Corey Dillon and Tom Brady. Which are tolerable when they are your team, but when you don't root for them, it just makes for a team of players that you wind up hating. I mean even now, you can tolerate it when the Jets beat you because they are a humble team of nice guys, or the Colts because they are truly fun to watch. Not so with that Pats. Maybe it's just cause they all take on the demeaneor of their coach who is a truly unlikable person if you aren't part of his inner circle. And I will never forgive the organization for the absolutely shabby way they treated Drew Bledsoe.

There are other teams that I simply despise. The Vikings, a team of hoodlums and thugs who should be in prison. The Ravens, a team with even more felons who should be in prison. The Cowboys, a team with a history of the most felons in NFL history. The Raiders, who have a felonious owner. I'd rather see the Pats win than any of those teams. But I still intensely dislike the Patriots. And I really hope the Colts can beat them.

If you're going to disparage one of my favorite players, please spell his name right. It's Tedy, one "d", okay? [wink]

And I'm not going to go into how I don't agree with you because let's face it, we rarely agree on much. But we still like each other anyway. That's what counts. Right? [grin]

Sorry Michael, we won....again.

I do feel bad for Bettis though. I mean, not bad enough that I wish they had one but this may have been his last chance to get to the Super Bowl. Ben has time, he's still a rookie, but I do feel bad for Jerome.

And we have to win in two weeks. I already put in for and got approval to take the Monday and Tuesday off after the Super Bowl so we can welcome them home to Gillette Stadium the day after and the parade in Boston the next day. I don't want those vacation days to be for nothing. [wink]

I think it's a forgone conclusion that New England will win the Superbowl. The Eagles haven't really played anyone of the caliber of New England since Pittsburgh beat them. Atlanta wasn't really all that close. Which shows you how weak the NFC is.
