The Football Gods Hate Me

Well...the Packers lost. Way to come up big Favre! Of course I'm pissed that the giants are going to the Superbowl...on top of that, one of the AFC teams that I don't like is going too (the Patriots). But you better believe that I'll be the Patriots' biggest fan come February 3rd.

If you're a giants fan (and I know of atleast one who reads this blog...you know who you are), you may be enjoying all of this in spite of Eagles fans everywhere. One thing I noticed in last night's game though, that I'll always remember. The giants (if you noticed, I don't think they deserve a capitalized G) could not get through the whole game without one standout asshole moment. You'd think they could considering Shockey wasn't playing. But no...when Brandon Jacobs ran 1 yard (correction...it was about half a foot considering the boneheads on the Packers who ran offsides TWICE), he made an unnecessary celebration. Now...I enjoy an enthusiastic celebration once in a while, if it's made at noone in particular...rarely when it's made at someone on the opposing team (even if they deserved it). But to taunt the fans of the opposing team like Jacobs did, in THEIR stadium, in an NFC championship game? That shows no class.

And don't call me a hypocrite...I know T.O. once played for the Eagles and did similar things. I never liked the times that he taunted fans though...and he never really fit in with the Eagles. He was like someone you pay to be your friend.

I won't be completely bitter about this situation though. Congratulations to the giants. I know the Patriots will be favored, but I don't want the game to be a blowout. I want it to be close (kind of like, say, when the Eagles played the Patriots in the Superbowl 3 years ago). Eagles fans have sustained enough heart-breaking losses in close games...it's about time the giants feel that pain.

You're a better man than I. I hope it is Pats 58 (including one safety) Giants 0, that Peyton throws at least four INTs, and that Coughlin's head finally explodes from rage.

Peyton? You mean Peyton's much less fortunate sibling, Eli.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. :)

To recap the 2000's so far: made the playoffs 4 of 7 years, 2 superbowl appearances

Giants = most prolific NFC team this decade. w00t
