Our Long National Nightmare Is Over

Just a quick one before I head to bed tonight.

First off, congratulations to the New England Patriots on advancing to their fourth Super Bowl in seven years, and putting themselves 60 minutes away from a feat that may never be equaled.  (Until the NFL realizes that 4 pre-season games is too many and expands the regular season while cutting the pre-season.)

Congratulations also go to the New York Football Giants, who are not only advancing to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2000, but have also ensured that it will be safe to watch ESPN, the NFL Network, and any other sports related programming that you might be interested in between now and Super Bowl Sunday.

Honestly, did you want to listen to two weeks of "Favre vs. Brady?"  Now, in lieu of that, we'll get talk about what could be a very intriguing Super Bowl, the Patriots on the cusp of immortality, and numerous reruns of the regular season finale that these two teams gave us, which was easily the best non-Vikings game I watched this football season.

Yep, ladies and gentlemen, it's a good time to be a football fan.

I might be a little scarce this week, as my mother has journeyed down from the frozen lands of North Dakota to visit Mrs. Gonzo and I.  There WILL be content this week as I continue looking at different potential draft needs for the Beloved Purple, but I'm not going to say what's coming on what day, because I'm not 100% sure.  Until then, have a good one, folks!
