While we’re on the subject of football, I just want you all to know, I can’t wait for this:
I know, I know. I’m a homer. Doh! A shameless homer. A brazen homer. An incorrigible homer. I don’t care. I’m also a spoiled homer. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, there’s nothing like blogging when your teams are winning. Last season, my team wasn’t winning, and like my main man little Ricky Pitino always says, “It sucks, and it stinks, and it sucks.”
For just the third time since Jets‘ linebacker Mo Lewis delivered that bone-crushing hit on Drew Bledsoe in week 2 of the 2001 season, the New England Patriots did not make the AFC Championship game. For just the third time since Jets’ linebacker Mo Lewis delivered that bone-crushing hit on Drew Bledsoe in week 2 of the 2001 season I didn’t have horse in the race. Without a dream in my heart. Without a love of my own. I didn’t like it. I didn’t like it one bit.
When Bernard Pollard took out Brady’s knee, he took away all those hopes and dreams. This one, this one right here. This was my dream, my wish. And it didn’t come true. So I’m taking it back. I’m taking them all back. Don’t get me wrong, Matt Cassel played admirably. Admirably Charles Nimitz. God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless. Matt Cassel did not give up, even though everyone thought playing without Tom Brady was hopeless. Can you blame them?
You know what I think. You know I think Tom Brady is the best football player on the planet. You know I think If Dr. Evil was smart, he’d get frickin’ sharks with Tom Brady’s arm attached to their heads. When there is trouble, he’s there on the double. From Atlantic to Pacific, they know Tom Terrific!
They know all Tom Brady has ever done is win. Best regular season record for any NFL quarterback since 1950. Better than Roger Staubach. Better than Joe Montana. Better than that six-five, 230-pound quarterback with a laser rocket arm. Better than them all. Post season? NFL record for most consecutive wins in the post season. Three rings. Two Super Bowl MVPs. That my friends, is what a quarterback looks like.
And just so you know, Tom Brady is already the favorite to win the 2010 Super Bowl. Get your popcorn ready bitches!
