There was a moment early during the first Giants series when I had a profound revelation—there was a football game being played. Especially being in Boston, the hype over the last two weeks has been so crazy and overwhelming. It was nice to be reminded of why we watch sports in the first place—for great games like this. Sports have an incredible capability to shock us and surprise us over and over again.
Three terrible outcomes:
1. Renewed New York fans. The only force more annoying in sports than Boston fans are New York fans.
2. More exposure for the 1972 Dolphins. Those guys would be more annoying than New York fans but there’s less of them and I don’t have to bump into them on a regular basis.
3. Back-to-back Manning Super Bowl victories. I don’t think this needs to be explained.
