NFL Playoffs

After weeks of hearing the national media proclaim Peyton Manning the greatest thing since football was Manning wonders invented, I actually headed to Gillette Stadium yesterday worried that my beloved Patriots would lose to the Colts. I'm so disappointed in myself that I fell for the hype and didn't believe in the genius of Bill Belichick. What football fan hasn't learned by now - never pick against this coach and this team in any game that matters.

"Mr. 49 Touchdowns" couldn't score a single one in the biggest game of the year. The 'unstoppable" Colts offense that averaged over 32 points a game got all of 3 points against the Patriots defense lead by the all mighty Tedy Bruschi.

After the game we walked out next to #55 Willie McGinest's dad. I thanked him for his genes.
