Football's Almost Over ...

There's one more game to go. You might not have heard any mention about it, but it seems likely that New England will win:

A three-point loss to New England five weeks ago and a record 10-game road winning streak give hope to New York Giants fans that their team will halt the Patriots' quest for a perfect season in today's Super Bowl.

Forget it, say Las Vegas oddsmakers and many former players. The Patriots are too good not to win the National Football League championship.

Patriots Will Win Super Bowl, Ex-Players, Vegas Say

A cursory inspection of sports headlines would seem to suggest that this is a common opinion. Now you can just ignore the game and do something constructive for the next few hours. Sadly, I'll be doing something constructive for the next few hours.

Speaking of which, I want to welcome folks who have traveled here from Taylor Marsh's site today. Someone's decided to hold some sort of blog amnesty day, and Taylor decided to do something different, and that's why you're here. Good for her. If there's one thing I know from my own experiences it's how much the world appreciates contrarians.

Sorry the place isn't more up to date, but on the rare occasions when I haven't lacked time to write I've lacked motivation. If nothing else, the Slobber And Spittle Blue ActBlue page is new.

So stay safe on Super Duper Bowl Sunday, or whatever it's called ...

UPDATE (Feb. 4): It appears that New England failed spectacularly to cover the point spread. Congratulations to the New York Giants. I'm sure the other Eli will be pleased ...

"Pleased" is a bit of an understatement.
