Patriots to the Superbowl

Big sports day: The New England Patriots have won the AFC Championship, and are on their way to the Super Bowl XXXVI against the St. Louis Rams.

Today's game was extremely gratifying. The Pittsburgh Steelers were nine-point favorites against the Patriots. But destiny would not be denied. Some terrific special teams play, a special appearance by Drew Bledsoe (who missed most of the season with an injury then the coach's decision to use Tom Brady as quarterback), and key interceptions down the stretch made this game very memorable.

Jenn and I are going into Superbowl weekend fearful: The last time New England made it to the Superbowl in New Orleans, we lost to Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers. Jenn made jambalaya for dinner. This weekend, she's planning sausage and peppers. Good move.
