After the Pats beat the Ravens - I was relieved and happy! Replayed the game again and watched in delight. Then at around 11pm or so when I found out that we will be facing the Giants - my tension and stress started. I couldn't enjoy even 1 second of the 2 week wait. In the beginning I was waiting for the SuperBowl to come quickly and win it and get over with it. Then as the days were slowly approaching - i started getting that naucious feeling and actually just wanted the SuperBowl to come and go - no matter what happens! Ofcourse wanted the Pats to win but also wanted to relieve my stress. It was getting too much. In addition I live in NJ and as you can imagine it was everything Giants Giants Giants. My son had a bday party that day and ofcourse everyone was wearing Giants jerseys. However these 2 other boys were wearing Brady jerseys and the other kids were giving them a hard time. Even some adults were "booing" the little kids. Also the amount of confidence these kids and their parents had about beating the Pats was amazing. They even consoled with me there on the Pats losing even before the game had started. Anyways - the game happened and I so so so so so so was expecting us to win and shut these annoying NYG fans up. I even had my Facebook status ready to go! We did a family prayer - my wife and two kids - praying for our Pats to win. After the loss - I was gutted!!!!!! It was an empty feeling and the night was horrible and going to work was the toughest. Saw cars with NYG flags, people wearing jerseys and while having lunch - seeing Guber Manning giving his PC and seeing highlights of the game made me want to puke. It's so tough living in this area and having to go through all this for the SECOND time and now again the parade is tomorrow and ofcourse wall to wall coverage. That's why even though I am so thankful for what the Pats have given me - but at the same time losing three times in the past 5 years to NY teams in the playoffs has really put me in tough situations living in this area. Its not been easy. However I am just glad that this is over and I hope i can get over it Haven't put on the tv as living in the Nj/NY area - any channel you put on will be about the NYG. Can't believe these scum bags have won 2 SBowls against us. I was so so ready to gloat but again had to congratulate my NY colleagues and friends who ofcourse were gloating away. In 2008 I thought that was a one off but to happen again - not sure how to deal with it again! It's so heart breaking. Sad thing is that my Pats lost it. They had so many chances but didn't execute. They had chances to shut these punks up but didn't. I love Welker and Brady but if you drop that crucial pass and give a safety on the first play - come on man! What was going on. Anyways - this is my state right now and it's not good but hopefully we win a few more SBowls the next few years but atleast till next season starts - this is going to haunt me - even in the slightest way - it will be there.......ESP being reminded of it every day living here. Oh well.....c'est la vie but atleast it's OVER!
