Cardiac Pats & Sox

My beloved New England Patriots beat an immensely talented Pittsburgh Steelers team with yet another last second field goal by Adam Vinatieri and yet another Joe Montana-ish performance by quarterback Tom Brady -- all the while overcoming immense adversity once again after losing safety Rodney Harrison and tackle Matt Light. I just can't imagine how anyone cannot love Bill Belichick's boys.

Meanwhile, the Olde Towne Team, also known as the Boston Red Sox, are tied with the same exact record as their archenemy, the New York Yankees. Everyone in Red Sox Nation is scared to death that their hearts will soon be broken as the season winds down with a head-to-head showdown between these two ancient rivals. Last year, when Beantown won its first World Series in 86 years, it was mostly because of the Yankees unprecedented, Red Sox-like, big choke. I can't wait for these two teams to face off for the final three games of the season.

I've got to believe Boston's hospitals, renowned for being among the best in the world, are leaders in treating sports fan-related cardiac arrests.
