And before the rest of you LECHES jump all over him, I called Tom Brady WEEKS ago and none of you will take him from me. You can have all the rest without a fight from me but this one is MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE!!!!
I have to say, though, I was distressed at the Pats' inability to take down Warner and the Rams' ease at breaking tackles...though the lead was 14-3 at the half, they were lucky, and when those pontificating, preaching bastards tied it up I was forecasting doom.
But Tom Brady and the Pats showed such BALLS by just driving down that field in the last 90, and when Vinatieri put it through...I was ecstatic, because it was so well-earned. Just stellar, intelligent play from humble men who got there through hard work.
Kudos to Belichick, too, one of the finest minds in the game. Parcells won two Super Bowls, and is a genius, but never without Belichick. And now Bill B wins one on his own. Great stuff.
The Patriots had this "Team Of Destiny" vibe even going into the playoffs. When the Rams cut it to 7, I had a feeling they would march back down again and that the game would turn on Vinateri's foot in the last seconds. Sure enough. Vinateri is GOLD.
Unbelievable, that FG. Not that hard to hit a 47 yarder in a warm dome, but it went through literally PARALLEL to the base of the goalpost. If the uprights had been 1/5 as wide, he would have looked dead center between them.
