After two long weeks that felt like two months, we have finally made it to Super Bowl Sunday. We have been so blessed as Patriots fans to get to experience this multiple times over the past decade and a half. For me personally, it never gets easier. I try to tell myself that these silly little rituals that I do have no bearing whatsoever on the outcome of tonight’s game, but here I sit, in the same pants, T-shirt and smelly old sweatshirt I have been wearing for years. I put my five year old son in the same outfit he was wearing two weeks ago for the AFC Championship game as well. I know it is ridiculous but I just cannot stop myself from doing it. One of my best friends is a Falcon’s fan and as much joy as I know he would feel seeing his team win today, I really hope that he will bathe in his tears of sorrow when the Patriots once again hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Is that wrong of me? Am I being greedy? Frankly, I don’t think so and I would guess every other fan of every other team would want ONE MORE. LET’S GO PATS!!!!!
