Glad to hear that the fans roundly booed Goodell for the entire duration of his presentation of the Lombardi trophy, that they cheered Robert Kraft, and that Mr. Kraft riled Goodell during his speech in a subtle and classy way.

That was the result I was hoping for from this Super Bowl and it happened.

Kinda sad that Falcons will get no credit for beating New England and Tom F'ing Brady for three quarters. I say that's an accomplishment.

If the game was three quarters long, then yes - that would be an accomplishment.

28-3... I knew it wasn't over. I'm in SE Texas - Oilers lost a playoff game when they were up 35-3 in the 3rdQ. Anything is possible.

Also enjoyed Goddell getting roasted. That was the only reason I wanted the Pats to win.

Ready to get back to normal around here. It's was a good week, a busy week, now everyone go home.

Wow!

I was wrong in predicting an Atlanta Falcons W. Thought they had it won at 28-3. An excellent early showing by Matt Ryan and Julio Jones (et al) was snuffed out by a tremendous NE Patriots effort in a stunning comeback, including the first OT in SB history. What a game!

Congrats to Tom Brady and the Pats!

That's what happens when you play to not lose, like the Falcons did in second half, and not play to win.

You could sense that tiny shift in momentum at start of third period. Totally different body language between the two teams.

I get it that when the body is fatigued, the mind also is, and there isn't much you can do about it.

By the way - for all of you who crawl out on occasion and claim that these types of games are rigged...this should put those claims to rest. Because I guarantee you, none of the decision makers wanted the Pats to win that game. Goodell versus the Pats... the politics of Craft, Belechick, Brady... definitely no fix here. Just wanted to put that out there.

--------------------------

Brady jersey reported stolen, but I believe it has been found.

I believe the fans were shouting Gooooooooooooo---Dell, and he was obviously moved by their show of love for him
