When I think of the circumstances surrounding tonights Super Bowl game, it reminds me of 1980 Winter Olympics Gold Medal Hockey Game. While the Chargers were certainly not the equivalent to the U.S.S.R., the fact is that if the Patriots don't win this game, the 18-1 means nothing. In the 2002 HBO Documentary "Do You Believe In Miracles? The Story of the 1980 U.S. Hockey Team", the players reminisced on Herb Brooks' locker room speech prior to the Gold Medal Game vs. Finland. It was short and sweet, yet very powerful. After that "miracle game", they still had one more game to win before they could take home the gold. They had to beat Finland. Herb Brooks came into the locker room beforehand, and said, "If you lose this game, you will take it to your ******* grave." Then he turned and walked almost all the way out, before turning around and saying again, "To your ******* grave." This is exactly how I fell about tonights game. I know the Patriots players are self-motivated, but I'd love to hear Belichick drop that line on them just for its significance in U.S. sports history.
