"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] (ABC News) Despite the sloppy offense on both sides, the Patriots defeated the brave but futile Eagles. For my friends who are fans of "Philly," maybe next year. For my citizens who knew the outcome...one word sums it all...Dynasty.

I didn't really enjoy the commercials that much. Some were funny, some were pretty much dumb. Most wasted my time since they were not only bland, but pumped too much sex and beer in them. I think the Cat, Car escape Girl and "Robbery" were the only real winners. Anyways, here is more from the media:
The New England Patriots don't have to proclaim greatness. The NFL record book does it for them. The Patriots won their third Super Bowl in four years Sunday, 24-21 over the Philadelphia Eagles, and now they are challenging history. It was their ninth straight postseason victory, equaling Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers. It was coach Bill Belichick's 10th playoff victory in 11 games, one better than the great Lombardi. And it matched Dallas' run of three championships in four years in the early 1990s.
"We've never really self-proclaimed ourselves anything," said Tom Brady, who is 9-0 in the playoffs. "If you guys say we're great, we'll accept the compliment."
Playing before a sea of mostly green jerseys in the crowd of 78,125, the Patriots ended Philadelphia's chance of heading north with its first pro sports title since 1983. Indeed, it's been 45 years since the Eagles won the NFL crown. And even though they made it to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1981 after three straight conference championship flops their sparkling season still ended in disappointment.
I wonder if I should call my Eagle friends in Florida? Selah!
