Especially considering the Celtics are ONE win away from claiming the NBA title? Will this erase any of the gut-wrenching memories from the Super Bowl for you guys? Really-2/3 of the major sports teams in the Boston area winning the championship(while the 3rd one was close) is NO small feat(especially compared to the DFW and Big Easy areas where meltdowns are a common thing). And plus unlike previous Super Bowl losers, the Pats seem to have learned their lessons and are choosing the proper personnel for another Super Bowl run. Remember the previous ones(Rams, Eagles, Hawks, Bears, Raiders, and Panthers) just sat on their fannies and thought they didn't have to make any changes whatsoever to their near-championship squads.
