They said the game was all but academic. They said an upset would not happen. They said that the New England Patriots were sure-things to win this year’s Super Bowl. But what they failed to recall was that Bill Belichick was, as a recipient of this blog’s Middle Finger of the Apocalypse award, cursed and would therefore not be able to lead his merry band of cheaters to the 19-0 promised land. Mark it down, America – with the NFL history witnessed tonight, All Things In Their Place is now the most powerful and nefarious force on the interweb. Watch your back, Harold Bloom.
On a marginally related note, I’m predicting that tonight’s break-out Super Bowl commercial character will be the E*trade Baby.
