    Talking Simmons: The Super Bowl XLII mailbag

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...simmons/080208

    18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1* 18-1*.

    Is this you, McClintic Sphere?

    I like to think the last thing that went through Bill Simmons' head, other than that bullet, was to wonder why the hell Belichick went for it on fourth-and-13 in the third quarter.
    --Butch, San Diego
    Shawshank references rule.

    Adam Vinatieri is the new Babe Ruth. If they still had him there is no way they punt the ball on the 31 after an opening second-half drive of eight minutes. No way! He is why they lost by three as opposed to won by three.
    -- Michael, New York
    Damn straight.

    I was rooting for the Pats to win. I wanted to see history. It's like watching Tiger Woods on the back nine at Augusta on Sunday. It's something you can tell your kids about. But during that last drive for N.Y., something happened. I realized, "Shoot, if New England wins, Boston gets another champion and I get nothing. If N.Y. wins, Tiki Barber gets the biggest cosmic turd sandwich in the history of turd sandwiches!" And right there, I started rooting for New York.
    -- Carr M., Long Beach, Calif.
    The only person to get owned nearly as much as the Pats after the Super Bowl was Tiki Barber.

    I'm sure by now you've heard that the rights had already been sold to a book titled "19-0: The Historic Championship Season of New England's Unbeatable Patriots." In fact, Amazon.com and the Boston Globe were offering people the chance to preorder the book. Given this past Sunday's events, perhaps the publishers should take a queue from O.J. Simpson and change the book's title to "19-0: If They Had Done It, This Is How It Would Have Happened."
    -- Ricardo, Dallas


    I played in traffic last night at Kenmore, praying for a car to hit me. Sadly it did not.
    -- Noah L, Newton, Mass.
    I'm sorry. I tried, but it was so damn dark I couldn't see you that well.

    How does it make you feel that, in the last three years, Tom Brady has lost playoff games to Jake Plummer and BOTH Mannings?
    -- Tim A.

    SG: Um ... confused. It makes me feel confused.
    And it makes me happy.

    So ... yeah. I manage a bar in Boston, and after the worst Boston sports moment since 2003, the phone began to ring ... a total of 11 calls came in from random people in New York, 411-ing bars in Boston to heckle us. One of the bartenders is from Chicago, and she was completely perplexed. I simply explained, "This is why we hate New York so much." She nodded and said, "Now I see." I don't care how awful Boston sports fans can be, have any of us ever 411-ed New York bars? No, we simply roll cars with New York plates onto their roofs.
    -- Matt B., Boston

    "Helmet Catch". Finally somebody has come up with a proper name.

    I don't like it. I'm sure some Euro/soccer fan is going to say something like "First they call it football and now they're talking about catching helmets."

    Who cares what geay Euro/soccer fans think?! Just because more people watch soccer doesn't mean it is a better sport. It just means more people need to get a life.

    Helmet catch RULEZ!

    Would "Greased-Pig-Eli" work better?!

    That wasn't me, but I would like to buy a beer for the guy!

    The only time Simmons is tolerable is when he is miserable. As a frontrunning gloater he is impossible to stomach.

    You know your distaste for a team has reached peak levels when you can listen to WFAN and enjoy hearing New York fans wallow in victory.

    The Hail Manning is easily the best I've heard so far, and the name I will use from now on.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.
