happy manning face elimination day!
Bummed about that loss? Wish you were going to the AFC Championship Game next week? Look, I'm gonna be honest. Last year appears to have been the exception that proves the rule. You choke in big games. If I were you, I'd start figuring out some kind of hobby that'll keep you busy every February.
(Yeah, yeah, we've been dormant as Mike Timlin -- what, you think he doesn't hibernate with bears during the winter months? -- for the last little while, which is owed to the fact that Patriots undefeated season in progress is giving me an ulcer and this so-called hot stove season has been pretty lukewarm. Hopefully we've have a grab bag of catch-up thoughts soon, including our "Don't Let a Ball Hit You in the Face on Your Way Out" farewell to Matt Clement, the "You Can't Be Missed If You Never Go Away" welcome back to Doug Mirabelli" and hedged bets on who will claim to have killed more woodland creatures with their bare hands when they report to Spring Training, Josh Beckett or Jonathan Papelbon.)
