I wanted the Giants to win the Super Bowl!

Truthfully, I would have preferred that the Steelers were in it, but that didn’t happen so I was rooting for New York. More than anything, what I really wanted was for New England to LOOSE. That whole cheating episode, paying a fine and then going on to become world champions would have bothered me. I hate the standards that professional sports set for our kids. The “Idolize us and make us millionaires” attitude that does a 180 to “We are only human” when they are caught doing something wrong bothers me too.

When you get right down to it, the thing that irritates me the most about the New England team is Bill Belachecks sweatshirt. There is something about those cut-off sleeves that is disrespectful. Arrogance is almost expected in professional sports. Cheating seems to have become part of the game. Add in disrespect from the coach, and Belacheck has achieved the trifecta of jerkdom.

I heard on the radio that the Patriots had copyrighted the phrase “The perfect season” last week before the game. Wonder what they are going to do with that now?

LOL ... tell us how you REALLY feel, Karen! LOL

I agree with you ... too much arrogance w/ the Patriots ... from the coaches to Brady (let's not EVEN go into his personal life, okay ... now THERE's an example (NOT) for our kids!!).

I would have preferred the Green Bay Packers to the NY Giants but at least the ones having a parade tomorrow don't live in Boston!

Amen Karen. I agree 100% with every you said and now Brady isn't even going to the Pro Bowl. What babies. Hopefully the Steelers will be in it next year.

The best part is they left MY '72 Dolphins PERFECT Season record intact. Yea Giants!!

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who was rooting for the Patriots to lose! I don't usually pay a lot of attention if the Steelers aren't in it, but I was passionately rooting AGAINST the Patriots. That whole spying thing really got me upset. Then to hear that the Steelers may have been shut out of a couple Super Bowls because of it? GRRRRRRR!!!!!
