Yes! The Patriots - Giants game will be seen by all

...as opposed to being shunted to the NFL Network. That way the whole country will see how The NY Giants humble an undefeated team, the way The Dolphins could not.

1) Still going to the bar, as Pitt-Dayton is on at the same time, and I don't trust myself to have the discipline to flip between the channels at a steady rate.

2) db, if you jinxed this for us, so help me God I will find you. Spin around three times, spit, and knock on wood right-bloody-now.

Why the hell would someone wanna watch a meaningless game like this for? The race for 1st round 2nd pick in the upcoming draft is for a greater purpose.

Anybody who enjoys watching the Patriots win, is out for a very disapointing season.
No one will remember this 2007-2008 team as anything special, as the patriots will not succeed.

But its meaningless!

Its all about perception.

When you'll be watching the Pats, I'll be watching Penn State beat Texas A&M. Now THAT will be a game!!

More importantly, look at this:

I'm pleased that our congressmen are spending their time on stuff like this. Oh, wait. I'm not pleased.

I'd rather have them doing this kind of thing than fucking around trying to make new laws or something.
