add this to the list of reasons why i hate that the MLB & NFL seasons overlap.

the Patriots tried to kill me last night.

shoddy defense.
Tom Brady looking decidely rusty, uncomfortable & out of rhythm, culminating in an interception.
a missed field goal from a kicker who rarely does.
down 24-13 with 3 minutes left in the game.

and then suddenly.

a touchdown.
a fumble recovery on the kickoff return.
another touchdown.
a defense that... well... managed to run out the clock anyway.

and the Patriots pull off a victory uglier that Steve Buscemi?

and then i exhaled. and also swallowed my heart.

now tonight, we get the magical mystical highly-anticipated terrifying return of Matsuzaka to the mound. against the Angels. a team that can certainly hit. and also run circles around the diamond. especially if Dice performs his patented nibble-nibble-nibble routine to the outcome of loaded bases & no outs. (i swear if he could, he would stack 'em two deep on each base.)

i'm pretty sure my heart can't take this kind of sports-induced trauma two nights in a row.

Rachel: You really were. Other than the final three minutes of the game, Brady looked confused to me, and the defesne still looks faulty. Nothing is more frustrating in sports than when your team gives the win away. =/

Andie: If I tried to add in anything else, my head would just explode. =P
