That far behind, last quarter, on the goal line, and they went for a field goal? Really?

I guess they somehow knew what they were doing? Hard to argue with them achieving the tie.

I wonder if the score would still be the same if Gostkowski hadn't missed that extra point. Probably, because then they wouldn't have gone for 2.

This is what I wrote to one of our players who sent me an e-mail when it tied:
Not . . . watching it.

I turned it over at 21-0. BBC had BAD Trek—“Spock’s Brain.”

I turn back . . . Pats settle for Field Goal.

Back to Bad Trek

I turn back “missed extra point”

Stuck with Star Trek. Now is the one where I AM KIRACK!!! ‘murican Indians.

I see the feed on my IPod.

20-28

I AM KIRACK

26-28

I swear I did three sets of abdominals before

28-28

I am not calling anyone, I am not changing the channel. KIRACK is being pelted by rock. Asteroid coming.

I must admit that I thought somewhere in the 3rd quarter that perhaps I over estimated what Belichick can do. I was proven pleasantly wrong.

PS: All the commercials sucked :(

PPS: You know what's crazy? In the 2016 calendar year season with Cav's coming back down 3-1; Chicago Cubs winning a World Series in Game 7 after all these years. I would say this Superbowl game is on par in sport's excellence and significance of those wins, if only for the addition of historical OT win.

HEY I AM WATCHING THE REPLAY NO SPOILERS!!!1!!ELEVNTY

--J.D.

P.S. People are comparing this to 2004 ALCS but, remember, those were four separate games. Time was not a factor; the MFYs could not "run out the clock" in Game 5.

Making up 25 points with, "currently," 3:55 left in the 4th quarter? Wow.

P.P.S. I was going to bump my "HA GRAMMY FAG HA!" thread I started when the hapless Celtics beat the equally hapless Lakers a few years ago but . . . what is the point?

P.P.P.S. As Denis Leary noted about the 2004 ALCS, "If any Red Sox fan told you they could come back or if any Yankee fan thought it was possible, they were lying through their fucking teeth." NO ONE thought the Pats were coming back.

It is 9-28 with 2:06 in the 3rd. ANYONE who thought they could come back against the offense that scores 30+ must maintain a two hundred yard distance from schools and day cares. Even the most homerish pro-Pats pundits said what they "could not do" was give Atlanta a lead--of like 7-10 points. 21 points? 25 points?

P.P.P.P.S. You cannot totally blame the Pat D for giving up 14 points on turnovers--particularly the Pick 6--but they managed to hold the Bestest Offense SCORELESS. Including after a failed onside kick. Fucking wow.

I had to call it a night at halftime. I thought, "Well, there's still a lot of football left to play...the Patriots can still win."

Looks like I missed specTACuLAR football.
