I've mentioned this a couple of other places, but I'm depressed. I REALLY wanted to see the old man take Green Bay to the big game this year, and they blew it. They weren't playing with the passion and drive I've seen all season long.
So now I'm left with a decision-- not as hard as the Capitol One Bowl, mind you, but a decision nonetheless: do I even bother to WATCH the Superbowl this year? I have no buy-in, and it's pretty anticlimactic for me.
I've been pretty open about my dislike for this Pats team and Christ Incarnate--er, I mean Tom Brady. I really can't pull for them to go 19-0, even though I'll lay odds that is what is going to happen (and I'm not a gambling woman.)
BUT, I can't stand Eli Manning, either. (Love Peyton, hate Eli. Can't wait to see how the third one turns out for me.) I'm not-so-secretly hoping that Eli goes out hurt early on and the Giants win without him. And as wrong as it is to wish injury on someone, that is the only way I'll get any satisfaction from the game.
Anyone else out there with me?
