Congratulations. You won fair and square. The Patriots did not, but you did. It is astonishing what the right mixture of luck and cheating will accomplish.

Liz, "us," you've become one of us! Smart move. Check out nfl (dot) com for more info if you're really interested.

Winston, WHAT did WE do wrong this week? Talent and practice and some more talent and some more practice and a little luck work wonders. Notice that I don't bash your team (who no doubt have NEVER cheated) while they continue their streak. Dontcha think it's time to let it go? Maybe it'll be NE vs. TN in the playoffs. What you gonna do then, huh? Now THAT would be interesting. ;)

Elsie, you still don't understand, do you...

Outside of the Boston area and a few fans sprinkled here and there, the NFL world hates, absolutely despises, the Patriots, Belichik, Brady, the whole bunch. It is not envy. It is not jealousy. It is...

You know the feeling that RedSox fans have about the Yankees? It's like that. BAD!

Now, having said that, your win and the Colts loss plays to the Titans favor. Many here bit their tongues and put their hatred of the Pats aside for one game and pulled for the Colts to lose. I considered that, but could not stomach it. Maybe it has something to do with Peyton being a Tennessee product...

Oh, I understand plenty, Winston. The Pats were the darlings of the football world (I recall them being called the gentlemen of the NFL) until they started winning and winning and winning, and the rest of the world started whining and whining and whining. It does, in fact, appear to be envy. If their record was 0-9, no one would be talking about them at all, would they?

Now, truthfully (but I couldn't say it before because I wanted to harrass you), Peyton really is my guy, more so than Tom. Peyton is a family man. Upstanding and outstanding. I think more of him on a personal level than I could ever think of Tom, for obvious reasons (though Tom certainly is more handsome). But this is football. It's not a feel-good club. The Pats are my team, win or lose. And I can't let the jealous ramblings of a bunch of green-eyed monsters change that.

It's becoming more likely that you and I will go head to head when playoff time rolls around. We'll talk again then, okay? And you can whine some more about the big, bad Pats. ;)
