    I can't stand the guy, but, on the morning of the NFL 2008 opener, he writes some funny stuff - read it and weep.

    "The world champion, greatest-ever Patriots would be playing at home tonight against the San Diego Chargers at Gillette. Traffic would already be backing up on Route 1 and you'd be icing your cooler and slapping some mayo on cold-cut sandwiches for a late-afternoon, four-hour tailgate."

    Shaugnessey's thought process is to sit around and think of things to write that will make New Englanders sad, angry or whatever negative reaction he can induce.

    And today he couldn't resist reminding us not only that we lost, but also the elation that we missed out on. This guy is truly a douche.

    I absolutely hate anything that Mr. Shaugnessey writes on the Pats and have stopped reading his football 'columns' more than two years ago.

    Why in the frigging world would the Globe allow these so called expert sports writers write about the Pats when they have proved that they have pathetic knowledge about football and the Pats?

    So please, as a true Pats fan, try to avoid clicking on Mr. Shaugnessey's column on anything to do with the Pats.

    I know, I know - yet, the self masochist inside me go the better of me.

    I just couldn't;t help thinking what a grand banner day this could have been.

    OK that's it.... D-O-N-E.

    I PROMISE, this is the last time I will talk about last year (until we win in Tampa in Feb.), today is it, on the day of the satrt of THIS year.

    I usually don't like what he writes but I found this article to be entertaining. Yes it hurts but a lot of what he says is true. I liked the part of where he says David Tyree would be harder to find than Whitey Bulger.

    Another nugget is the game wouldn't be against the Chargers. Maybe they would've puller in the fish or something, but he whole predetermined schedule thing comes into play there.

    Yeah, that's true. They're not going to flip the Chargers and make 'em come up to Foxboro (much as I'd like that to happen :)). FWIW, I'm somewhat surprised that they went with Gnats-Redskins for the opener; that game would be a pretty good draw anyways, so why "waste" it?
