Ten Quick Super Bowl Thoughts

1) WOW!

2) Best 4th Quarter in Super Bowl history. And for those, like me, who really enjoy aggressive defensive play, that was one of the Top 5 Super Bowls ever.

3) Tom Petty rocks! Not very glitzy, especially by Super Bowl standards, but just flat out rocked. Mike Campbell...great and underrated lead guitarist.

4) The "genius" Bill B. passes on the long FG opportunity on 4th and 13. I questioned it at the time. Interesting.

5) The "genius" Bill B. decides not to challenge the potential fumble recovery that appeared to have been ripped out LONG after the whistle should've blown. Interesting.

6) The '07 Patriots now join the short list of the greatest teams of the Super Bowl era NOT to win the Super Bowl.

7) That play where Eli Manning looked like he avoided a certain sack about 3 different times and finally spun free and fired the ball seemingly at random, and Giants receiver David Tyree leapt up and at the absolute end of his reach pinned the ball against his helmet with one hand as he crashed to the field on his back and brought the other hand over, never losing control of the football...GREATEST PLAY in Superbowl history!!!

8) Bill B. restores his rightful claim to the "genius" tag by realizing that nothing good for the Patriots could possibly happen with only 1 second left, and it was time for the pouting to begin in earnest.

9) Too bad I'm not a Giants fan, or I'd REALLY be excited right now.

10) Last but certainly not least, FUCK the '72 Dolphins. You're still not even in the Top 5 greatest teams of the Super Bowl era. So, bite me.

To be recreated in side yards across this great land by the youth of America...

...oh, wait, that would have been the case in the late-'70s/early-'80s. I'm so out of touch. Let me rephrase: To be recreated on Xbox across this great land by the youth of America.

Hilarious. I haven't thought about "a game of spectacular catches" in many years!!!

I agree on all counts - especially the Tom Petty ones.

That guy just rocks. The most amazing thing about him in concert is that as he plays a 3 hour set, most of the songs were top ten and you know the words to all of them and they never get tired.

Proof of genius. He truly is one of our greatest American songwriters!

I just think that this should be repeated again, if not printed into every text book from Alaska to Mexico.
