I've been wallowing, as we all have, and that will continue for some time. But I had a thought before of something that's actually kind of positive, so I'm thinking we could maybe generate a list of good things that could come out of this horror......... The first two I have are sort of related. One, this game will provide me with some armour when it comes to my reaction to future losses. In the past, any tough/close loss I'd feel like it was a heartbreaker (granted, the Pats haven't had many of those--or ANY losses--for some time, but still). Now, a tough loss in, say, game #6 of the regular season? HA! Will roll right off me. On the flip side of that, ultimate victory, when it comes--and it will--will feel again like it did back when the Pats upset the Rams for the first SB title. I know all championships are great, but wasn't the feeling when we beat the Eagles for the third title a pale copy of that first one? The next time around won't be the first, but it will be SO sweet to be back on top.
