I didn't see one game yesterday, so no Monday Morning Quarterback today.
Sox Sweep Rox
Unless you live in a stalag in Siberia, the big story is the Bosox win, in four. Not even Red Sox fan Greg had the guts to predict a sweep, he said it would go seven. But congrats go out to a good solid team. They pretty much dominated the regular season, stubbed their toe (but recovered) in the Indians series, and dominated the World Series with relative ease.
The big story was Lowell the MVP. What a classy and humble guy.
The Game Of The Century Is On
Yes, the hype will be nauseating, at times. We will hear more predictions, more analysis , than in any other game this season. In fact, this will rival the Super Bowl for prognostication production.
But, this is what the NFL has wanted, what the media has wanted, and more than likely what the teams have wanted. This is already being billed as the game of the century. It's very easy to market, when you have games like this.
The Pats have made their wins look easy. The Colts have plugged along in their shadow, gritting it out methodically.
For now, I will leave everyone with a couple of thoughts:
1. The team that scores last will likely win. Look for a scoring fest. It won't be a 49-41 score, more like a 28-24. I just cannot see how either of these defenses can shut down the other. It will be offensive productivity that rules the day.
2. Coaching will be front and center, both coaches are familiar with each other. Each team is talented on both sides of the ball. But the team that has the better game plan and executes it, will win.
That's it for now. As I said, we will have a whole week of sports pundits and their op-eds to digest. I do not want you to burn out on Monday.
