I with the help of my wife, have raised four children. Up until last night, I never questioned how great they all turned out. My oldest daughter graduated with a BS in Special Education from Bridgewater State College in Ma. She announced last night that she would cheer on New England today. I raised my children to be Giants fans. Where did I go wrong. What did they do to her at that school.

GO BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lizard -

Please don't be too hard on yourself. You both raised your oldest daughter well and sent her off to finish her education.

She went to college.

She learned to make decisions on her own.

She learned that, when making these decisions, it was important to compare greater elements against lesser elements.

THAT'S why she's rooting for the Patriots today. They're a better team!

GO PATRIOTS!!!!

The Patriots didn't even exist until late 1959.

Prior to that, a LOT of New England football fans followed and rooted for the Giants. The Patriots were so bad - for so long - that many New Englanders STILL claimed the Giants as their "home" team in the early days of the Patriots.

My dad, however, lost his Blue Religion very early and he raised me a proper heathen.

Speaking of religion and football, here's how New England fans look at things:

====================================

Three quarterbacks, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning and Tom Brady, go to heaven to visit God and watch the Pro Bowl game.

God decides who will sit next to him by asking the boys a question.

God asks Peyton Manning first: "What do you believe?"

Peyton thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and says, "I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my fans."

God can't help but see Peyton's essential goodness and offers him a seat to his left.

Then God turns to Eli Manning and asks, "What do you believe?"

Eli says,"I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. I, too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I've always tried to be a true sportsman, both on and off the playing fields."

God is greatly moved by Eli's sincere eloquence, and he offers him a seat to his right.

Finally, God turns to Tom Brady. "And you, Tom, what do you believe?"

Tom Brady replies, "I believe you're in my seat."

====================================

GO PATRIOTS !!!!!!!!!!!
