It's one of those days you feel silly for caring about sports.
You’ll have to excuse my lengthiness—the reason I dread writing letters is because I am so apt to get to slinging wisdom & forget to let up. Thus much precious time is lost.

  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
Tom Brady seems like he's been Space Jammed. People should start scanned local football fields for games involving animated players and Cam Newton.

Ready for the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history?

I wish I were as optimistic as you.
i probably wouldn't be this optimistic if it were the celtics in game 7 laying an egg

After game 7 2010 I couldn't talk to my girlfriend for a week

..

She was really worried, ha
I trust Danny Ainge

3 possession game. Imperative to get a quick TD to cut it to 11 if they are going to have any chance..

Tom has been off. ATL pressure not helping. Give them credit.

I think I went emotionally dumb somewhere during the 4th quarter of that game 7, and it lasted a month!

Atlanta players have been great so far, very energetic. Also, Brady's age looks like it's finally catching up with him.

Yeah, you can't win many games when multiple people decide to lay an egg at the same time.

ya

I went numb when I saw LA get all those free throws

Both teams took it to the rack. One team got the calls

Edit: Ray was ice cold at the time, right? That was so sad. And KG with one leg. Perkins hurt...

Good lord, we were lucky to be as close as we were, come to think of it..

sorry, truly. I try not to think of that one

But it's part of who we are, man!

We'll get them back! We're already on the right path. We're climbing the mountain again. LA is just starting the ascent

I must be one of the few people who hates these stupid Super Bowl halftime shows. 

And I'd prefer not to conjure up bad memories of 2010 game 7.  I didn't sleep well for over a month after that game.  Still bothers me to this day.

I just rewatch U2's performance every year at halftime. Nothing will ever touch that for me.
