The Super Bowl.
The biggest football game of the year or the biggest blowout of the year?
I know I will drive Giants fans crazy by saying this, but you do not even stand a chance.
I could name five games this year that have been bigger than the game that is supposed to come. (But I won't since that would be a waste of my time)
The Patriots, 18-0, take on a sub par Giants team that has squeaked their way by every playoff opponent thus far.
Sure, you might have beat the Green Bay Packers, a team that was predicted to be .500 on the season.
Sure, you might have snuck by the Dallas Cowboys.
But are you serious, the Patriots?
Now I am not a Patriots fan in any means of the imagination. I would rather see the Giants win any day. But the problem is, it just will not happen this year.
The Patriots are going to go 19-0 on the season and do something that no one ever has before. It is inevitable.
The news recently reported that a man by the name of Marc had spent $40,000 for four tickets to the Super Bowl.
Granted, this was a whole package deal which came complete with pre-game and post-game parties. But are you serious? $40,000? To take your son to a stupid football game?
The game this year will be so uninteresting (unless Tom Brady, Wes Welker, and Randy Moss all break both their legs in the first quarter) that I might only watch for the ads, a trait of people watching the Super Bowl that I hate.
Why watch a game for the advertisements? Sure, they are funny, but you can go on and on about how you hate the game and it is too violent and then you go right into watching the game, for the ads!
I wish I could be more interested in this year's game, but I don't think it is physically possible.
Not even the 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week pump-up crap that ESPN has aired since the conference championships is getting me even remotely interested in the game.
Sorry Giants fans, I wish your team could pull it off, but they simply can not this season.
