The five stages of grief

Denial. I can't believe the Patriots lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl. I can't believe that catch David Tyree made against his head on their final drive. I can't believe a Manning has ended the Pats season twice in a row.

Anger. I hate Super Bowl XLII MVP Eli Manning. Eli Manning? Super Bowl MVP? Just typing that makes me hate myself. Is this the twilight zone?

Bargaining. I'd give all the hoodies in the world for another shot at that game. Even this crazy shiny red hoodie, which is apparently unlucky.

Depression. What's the point of even watching football? It's just a silly game. None of the football players in high school would be my friends, and my college doesn't even have a team.

Acceptance. Oh well. That was quite a season. Who'd've thought 18-1 could feel so bad? The worst it means is that the 1972 Dolphins retain relevance. C'est la vie.

Well, now everyone in Mass can go vote in the primary tomorrow instead of attending the pre-planned victory parade. Way to go, Mayor M.

Eli Manning = Super Bowl MVP.

Randy Moss = free agent.

Well, it ain't the Twilight Zone, but I likes it all the same.

At least the mini-keg was good...assuming you didn't drink it all alone beforehand.
