The Patriots Win!!1!!!11!!!!

They need to win just so there will be a new standard.

And the Giants need to lose, and lose badly, because they are in the NFC East and only one team, the Philadelphia Eagles, should ever win the NFC East and advance into the playoffs.  So let’s go Patriots and let’s go Packers.  Screw the Giants, the Cowpukes, and the Skins.

UPDATE:  Despite what is usually the kiss of death plea/endorsement on my part the Patriots actually did win.   As did Penn State regardless of a very rocky first half start.  The Giants can play some football so now I’m hoping they play the ‘Pukes for the NFC championship and beat their ass and then go on to lose to the Colts or Patriots.  Colts versus Giants match-up would be sweet, even if we don’t see sports history made with the Patriots winning the Super Bowl,  just to see the older brother school the younger brother.

 Patriotic Jessica Simpson

Let’s make sure Jessica Simpson shows up for all of Tony Romo’s games.  If he was distracted by her presence can you blame him?  Now, who wouldn’t like to stand at attention and salute that?
