I Don’t Know Why It Matters…

But I hate the fact that the NY Giants are in the Super Bowl. I don’t know why it matters, but my stomach did a somersault after watching the Green Bay Packers lose in OT to the Giants. I think it’s because I think that Eli Manning, though playing well in the past few weeks, 1) seems like a baby to me and 2) isn’t as good a QB as he thinks he is. Not to mention the fact that Tom Caughlin (the Giants’ coach) seems like an ass and the team is woefully inconsistent in everything they do from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.

Maybe it’s also because I, just like a lot of people, wanted to see a New England Patriots-Green Bay Packers match-up in the Super Bowl. One team going for the unprecedented 19-0 season, while the other has one of the greatest sports stories in history in QB Brett Favre… That woulda been awesome, because the game would’ve been good and no matter who won, you could be happy.

Thinking about it, a lot of my displeasure probably stems from the fact that I hate seeing people who I feel don’t deserve it get a chance to win it all, while the guy who probably deserves it the most (Favre) gets left at home.

At this point, I’m sure I’ll tune in to the Super Bowl, but I won’t have as much interest in it as I would have, and I’ll be looking for the Giants to get their butts handed to them by the Patriots (even though the Giants almost upset New England in the last game of the regular season).

It just goes to show you that whatever record a team has entering the preseason, it's just a matter of who's playing hot.

Go patriots!
