And you people go on about us liking cricket

Just one little note, Cap? Please? With the "sports" tag to warn the uninterested off?
... do give us a moment in the sun ... no championship for a New England football team for 42 years! We just can't help being dizzy with euphoria ... I am all atwizzle! And after all they really are a great group of guys!
Jackie : Superbowl is in New Orleans, dear. Ya mean to tell me you didn't root for my team after all those years I've applauded the "Run for the Roses?" sigh.

Miles of smiles to one and all ... what a birthday present! A bit early but I'll take it.
Wanted to place a bet on the Patriots but nobody would cover the bet ...EVERYBODY was rootin' for the Pats! Boston's streets are one big party!

WOW, you may be interested to learn that football fans in Baltimore were pulling for the Patriots, in spite of the fact that it was they who knocked off the Ravens (that "alleged" football team) in the playoffs. But then, all the world loves to see an underdog prevail; it adds immeasurably to the fun. Good on yer, as they say in Oz.

NOTE: Now I'm really having an identity crisis. You say the Patriots are from Boston? Guess I should be supporting them then hey? What happened to the Red Sox - or the Celts for that matter? I'd root for them but I'm not the one who decides when I'm rooting

Nope ... toooo cold for this old lady! Instead had best seat in the house - in front of my TV where Channel 5 showed the entire celebration - two and a half hours of it! The parade from Boston Common to Government Plaza where (it was estimated) half the population of New England gathered to cheer for the New England Patriots. And not a single incident of rowdyism.
What a day!

from Wow--. And not a single incident of rowdyism
Yes, every sportscaster i heard commented about it.. Jay Leno had the explaination..
its been so long since a Bean town team actually won a championship of any kind-- the sport fans don't know how to celebrate..They have never seen such celebrations up close. they are at a lose.. they milled about in the Commons.. happy.. but clueless as how to behave.
