This is just recompense for your going over to the dark side. Rooting for Mr. "Cut that Meat" was simply inexcusable. You must now repent by taking the NEP off of your most-hated list.
On another note, I disagree with you about the rest of the Pats' schedule. They still have to play the Giants, the Ravens, and your Steelers -- all likely playoff teams. Then there's Miami and the Jests, which, of course, shouldh't be too tough, but the Bills have brought themselves up to almost-respectability, and can't be overlooked. And then there are the Eagles, which will, I'll grant you, be a gimmee.
Still, that's still at least three tough games to go, and one potential surprise. So I would hardly count on an undefeated season.
PS--The housing is even more unaffordable here in California, I'm sad to report, because we'd love to see you come back. But there are a ton of foreclosures on the market these days ...
God. I felt like I had to take a shower after that game. Ugh -- rooting for Peyton Manning felt so dirty.
I was thinking, though, surely housing EVERYWHERE in California can't be hideously expensive, can it? I mean, what if I moved to Barstow or something? Or Needles? Or Baker? Barstow: it's got an In-N-Out Burger!
