Jan 15 2018NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS! AGAIN
So here we are with four teams left standing for the Super Bowl title. The finish in Minnesota Sunday was one for the ages, and even better in this social media era. I tried to think fo something like that in Cleveland, and couldn't come up with much. A bunch of Indians' walk-offs, maybe the best recently at the end of that 22-game win streak last season. But nothing quite like the Kennum-to-Diggs miracle, which just rolls off the tongue. The Vikings open as a 3 1/2 point favorite in Philly, call that the "Nick Foles Effect." In the AFC it's the "Patriots' Effect," as in "they're always there". Seven years in a row! But in this country we don't celebrate excellence, unless it's our team. Tony Romo said it Saturday...best coach/best QB/best owner. Pretty good combo, but we despise it. By the way, The Pats are a whopping 9-point pick over the Jags.
