So, SB 46 (screw those roman numerals) will be a rematch of SB 42. Meaning four years after screwing New England’s bid for a perfect season, Brady and Belicheck have their chance at revenge.
Both Championship games were decided by a FG. For the Ravens, they missed theirs (bad snap? to me, it appeared a bit short, and the adjustment put the laces at 2-3 o’clock, not 12 noon. I don’t know if this altered things, but the potential game=tying FG was then wide left). Final, Pats 23-20.
In OT, the Giants win 20-17. So it is a rematch of SB 42, the one in which the Giants ruined the 2007 Patriots undefeated season.
As for me? Go Giants.
Other news today: 2006 WS MVP David Eckstein retired today.
Johnny Damon desperately wants to rejoin the Yankees. Problem. The Yanks have just $2 million or so for a DH. That, AND to re-sign Chavez as a backup 1B/3B. Meaning they have to find a way to dump A.J. No one is interested yet, no matter how much $$$$ the Yanks will dump. Until the Yanks dump A.J., and a portion of his salary, they then can’t go after Chavez or Damon…
