So the New England Patriots have gone 16-0. Can we now please stop that stupid champagne popping celebration every year? Yes, you're undefeated. Now win the Super Bowl or nobody will give a damn. In 2001, the Seattle Mariners won 116 games, only the second team in baseball history to do so. And they were eliminated in the ALCS by the New York Yankees, who in turn lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the World Series. Can anyone remember all the folks on that 2001 Mariners team without looking it up?
So raise a glass to the Pats, but it's the Superbowl that counts. I'm not going to claim that my Seahawks are going to win it all, but if they can heal some of their injuries before they hit the playoffs they might have a slim chance.
