It is funny for me to hear people gripe about the pats and red sox being good. my family was stationed in new england in the late 70's, part of the 80s and 90s. When I was old enough to actually understand football, I rooted for the pats for pro football, and the fact is, they did not just suck, they REALLY sucked. Now that they win, everybody hates them. I remember getting Irving Friar's autograph at a local sporting goods store when I was little, only to later watch the pats get beaten miserably in the Super Bowl. It didnt help that half of the team was high before and during the game. Not that I care much about pro football anyways. The point being, get over it. It is stupid to hate a team just because they are good (with the exception of the New York Yankees although not so good anymore).
