Are you ready for some football…..oh, wait!

by Archives January 31, 2001
Well it’s finally over. The saga that is the NFL season came to an end last Sunday with Super Bowl XXXV…….or is that super bore!
This was a lopsided victory that was predictable from the time both teams were
known. Did anybody really think that New York could beat Baltimore’s defence?
The Ravens defence this year was arguably the best defence in NFL history led by the Super Bowl MVP Ray Lewis.
I stopped watching this game after the player introductions. Seeing some of the players idiotic entrances was enough to make me puke. What is it with these football players and their god forsaken dances? Can’t they just play the game as it should be played and not dance around like a fish out of water after every
insignificant play.
Having seen the highlights on the news later that night, it confirmed my suspicion that I didn’t miss much…..well except those commercials which have been the best part of the Super Bowl for some years.
For the first time in a long time, a team that boasted and bragged about being the best and declared victory before even taking the field finally followed through on its promises. Yeah, we all wanted New York to win just to stick it to those cocky players but hey, in the end, the best team won and I don’t think anybody can argue with that.
So now we must live through the next few months without football……well, there is the XFL, and we’ll finally get to see what the will be like this weekend.
And now, back on the ranch!!!
With all the hype surrounding the Super Bowl, did anybody notice that the Montreal Canadiens beat two of the top teams in the eastern conference of the NHL.
They even got some much needed good news on the injury front by welcoming back their premiere face-off man, Trevor Linden.
Saturday afternoon the Habs defeated the Washington Capitals convincingly and on
Sunday, they manhandled their division rivals, the Ottawa Senators.
As for Linden, after missing 12 games with a foot injury, he collected five points on the weekend, showing just how important he is to this team, despite what his detractors say.
Of course, let’s not forget the two solid games from Jose Theodore, the Canadiens number one goaltender in waiting.
So are the Habs turning things around?
If so, do you think this is a good or bad thing? Let us know what you think at:
