A few lessons from the Super Bowl:

1. Cheaters never prosper.

2. Cheaters never prosper.

3. Tom Brady should not have been such an arrogant prick at the press conference when Plax predicted the Pats would (only) score 17 points.

4. Peyton Manning has a younger brother!

5. The New England Pats had become the New York Yankees (circa 1996-2000) of the NFL. Watching their dynasty crumble at the hands of a prohibitive underdog was as satisfying to a playa hata like me as when Luis Gonzalez touched up Mariano Rivera in the 9th of game seven of the 2001 World Series.

With the Red Sox in danger of becoming the New York Yankees and the the Celtics dominating the NBA, some humble (Boston Cream?) pie is JUST what New England needs after so much good fortune in such a short period of time.

In less than a decade, New England sports fans went from long suffering die hards to insufferable blow hards. The bitter taste of defeat, once familiar, should shut their smug, arrogant yaps for a while.

Congratulations Giants! Congratulations Giants Fans! Y’all deserved it.

Congratulations to the NFL on a great post season…and the best Super Bowl in recent memory. A game worth talking about…a game that lived up to the hype…a game better than the commercials.

How long before training camp starts?
