There Goes Another One

Trot Nixon epitomizes the soul of Red Sox Nation; he forever will. Even though he signed a one-year deal with the Indians (my second-favorite team; could have been way worse), he will always be a Red Sox. With that dirt dog mentality and gritty attitude, he was a leader of the team for twelve wonderful years. And although his departure hurts, I will always remember him as he was, a Sox for life.
JD Drew had better be good.

What a wild game. Oh wow. I'm still living solely off the euphoria I was just infused with. Throughout the game there were times where it seemed like we had no chance--in fact, nearly the entire game I felt like the worse team. And I think there's a good possibility that we were, in fact, less talented, but one position, quarterback, is all it takes. And that one position stepped up in the fourth quarter and delivered a win. And did we miss Adam Vinatieri? Not a bit. Gostkowski nailed three FG's, including a 50-yarder... and a game-winner.
What a game. I love football.

On to Round Two

I did my best not to expect a Patriots win for this game. The Jets are a good team. They looked good today. However, we dominated, especially at the end. We were clearly the better team. How about that Asante interception and TD, huh? Or Belichick slugging the cameraman and hugging Mangini, and actually showing emotion when Asante got that touchdown?
But the celebration will be short-lived. We need a win next week. We need to be dominant. San Diego is an excellent team. We need to be prepared. We need to work hard. This is playoffs. All or nothing; go big or go home.
