Classic blogging: say “the internet” to refer to one article.
Allow me to work backwards; yesterday was former New England Patriots QB Tom Brady’s 43rd birthday. I eventually (Tame Impala) got around to paying my respects.
A few hours before I got around to it; Good Morning America host, Michael Strahan wished Brady a HBD on twitter using a not so faltering pic of the Goat who hates being called the Goat.
Despite being an inferior franchise the last 20 years, the New York Giants have the ultimate trump cards over the Pats by beating them in two Super Bowls; most notably Super Bowl XLII where Strahan and the lack of an “in the grasp” call cost the Patriots perfection.
In the whole inferiority complex that Boston has to New York as illustrated by Colin Cowherd we kinda just have to accept it. It is what is; when you go to nine Super Bowls you’re bound to lose a few.
Football is the ultimate team game. Sometimes the worse team wins in a one game scenario. Because of that we have Super Bowl champions like the 07 Giants (to be fair the 01 Pats are in a similar boat). You gotta just tip your cap and move on and take solace in the six Super Bowls you’ve won; knowing how close all those games could’ve gone either way.
What you don’t do is whatever this lame ass response with an uncomfortable wink is.
Because the Pats and Giants did run it back; remember?
Sure, Strahan wasn’t there...he retired after Super Bowl XLII because he had been in the NFL since 1993.
Admittedly, it is kinda wild to see that Brady is only five years younger than Strahan, but the point remains. This comeback fucking sucks and should not register a single positive point of praise. Oh cool, the older guy who had a HOF career retired 12 years ago after his team ended the quest for 19-0. You still are playing with historically one of the least relevant organizations in all of sports because you eat dirt wraps and have a yes man Guru; you really showed him! It’s not like Strahan is 28 and retired to be a twitch streamer. Dude has a bronze bust in Canton. Just tip your Panama Jack hat and move on, Florida Man. Strahan won here.
