I am not moving back to the US until the Patriots win another Super Bowl. I was just thinking about how lucky I am to be here and to not be exposed to ANY Super Bowl commentary, conversations, or replays (I have never seen a single highlight from the game!). Another ex-Pat that works for me tried to talk to me about the game yesterday, and I told him to stop right away. And then I was thinking, "shoot, it's going to be darn tough to be back in the US and have to occasionally deal with those things." Even though I am not planning on going back for at least 2 years, I'll still be exposed to it now and then because of the freakishness of the game. And that will suck. And then I thought about Game 6 of the '86 World Series (still the most painful sporting event of my life) and how I could never watch replays or highlights of that game, until... the Sox won the Series in 2004! That game washed away so much pain that I am now able to watch highlights of Buckner and Stanley and Gedman without puking! If a Sox win can do that for me, why not a Pats win? Yes, it's true that 18 years probably also helped to wash away some pain. But I figure that even though the Pats will hopefully win a Super Bowl in less than 18 years, all of the goodwill that I have stored up for them + a victory after the horror-bowl will wash away enough pain for me to withstand the occasional Eli highlight. God willing the Pats will win another one within the next 5 years so I can get the **** out of here. Please do not tell my wife.
