A Swampy Foxboro

So I'm pissed off enough as it is after that Jets debacle yesterday (weird season, nobody's talking about two obvious things: 1. Gabriel's game-altering fumble...very few things kill a team quite like fumbling a huge offensive play and 2. Second straight year (and one half of the Carolina Super Bowl) that the defense cannot get off the field on 3rd down with Rodney Harrison on the sidelines. These are two HUGE reasons they lost yesterday, not covered in any game story. Go figure).

So, Amazon decides to send me this email this morning, apparently to taunt me. I think they need to work on their related purchases emails, if you ask me....

Dear Customer,
We've noticed that customers who have expressed interest in Super Bowl XXXVI - New England Patriots Championship Video have also ordered The Legends of the Florida Gators on DVD. For this reason, you might like to know that The Legends of the Florida Gators is now available on DVD. You can order your copy for just $25.95 by following the link below.

I think I'll pass.

Yeah, I'm gonna pass on that too. No thanks.

Did amazon really send that? That's embarassing. They should have just sent the email w/o saying, in effect, "we have noticed that a completely random event has occurred and figured we might as well try to capitalize on it by spamming you with this email". Then again, many businesses do this all the time w/o disclosing what they're doing, so amazon gets credit for their honesty.

Oh yeah, on the Pats, the third obvious thing nobody is talking about is the end of that dynasty. Nobody recognizes these things until a couple of years after it's happened, but that team has lost a lot.

And the 4th thing is that Corey Dillon looks about as fast as I would busting through the line into an open.

but he still can stiff arm the best of them to the ground and gain 40+ yards up the middle
