    I thought that was called the Toilet Bowl. I'm pretty sure it was.

    I can still remember the photo in the next day's Globe of Ron Earhadt shaking hands with (IIRC) Ted Marchibroda.

    Two more dejected looking human beings I had never before seen.

    "hard to imagine two division rivals in the NFL having a more ignominious history between 1981 and 2000."

    I didn't think our wild card victories over Miami the Raiders and the Jets on the way to the Super Bowl were ignominious.

    The Colts had a few winning seasons, but generally sucked.

    I really enjoyed our teams in the 1980's. We had some really good teams in the late 90's too, including another Super Bowl appearance.

    Actually, it's hard to imagine the 2001 team being over .500 without the core players of the '97 team.

    I imagine a lot of teams would consider two Bowl appearances in two decades to be an improvement, rather than a disgrace.

    I remember the game. Both teams tried their hardest to lose. Ah the memories.
