Bill Belichick owes me an apology

In case you are the one person in the northern hemisphere who doesn't know, the New England Patriots lost last night to the Colts.

The game was on a little later than usual, so Bob recorded it rather than stay up to watch it. Which means it wasn't until this morning that he watched the Patriots lose a 13 point lead, watched the coach, Bill Belichick make a really bad call that involved 2 yards to first down, 70 yards to a touch down blahblahblah end of story: the Patriots lost the game.

I don't really care who lost the game. I like watching football, I even like rooting for a particular team, and usually that is the Patriots. But I really, ultimately don't care who wins. What I do really care about is that after watching this apparently bone headed move, and subsequent loss, Bob was in a BAD MOOD.

I was upstairs getting Cooper up for the day, when I heard "That was a dumb flibflabbing call!!!" and then a few minutes later Bob stomped up the stairs to recount the sordid details. Then he proceeded to be in a bad mood for the rest of the morning. Snappish one might say. Short of temper. Grumpy.

I found out via Facebook that this was not an uncommon response to last nights' game. Some people had a hard time sleeping. I wondered if that would have been a better alternative to being grumpyassed in the morning.

In any event, everyone seems unified in placing the blame squarely with the Patriots coach, Bill Belichick. So I guess he owes EVERYONE an apology. That or free tickets to a home game.

Oh, his call was sweet!!! I am ready to put a Manning on my living room wall. Some of us went to bed happy and woke up happy. I thought it was a daring call not a no confidence call. They were just arrogant enough to try to make it. The rest of the game indicated they probably could. Oops. Sorry, Bob. Stuff happens.

My husband told me about that...I was just like, why?....

I don't really have a *team* so it makes no difference to me but still - stupid call.

I don't have a clue. Don't watch Football but am pretty enamored of guys in tight pants.

The issue was New England was whipping the snot out of the Colts. It was all up to clock management. New England was killing the best team in football.

My team has been winning every time, (Saints) and I attribute it too a pregame oral thing my wife does for me. It the lucky pregame thing.
