In the States, the major leagues stepped up, I thought.
- First, even news that Michael Jordan was returning to the NBA with the Wizards gave cause for cheer
- The Diamondbacks beat the Yankees in a thriller in a November World Series
- Then for us in the Boston area at least, the New England Patriots removed a lot of the glumness
Boston area fans, as many have said, have never had it so good. Can you believe the Patriots now are the club with the longest championship drought?! (The Sox won in '07, the Celtics in '08, and the Bruins in '11)
Payback, I hope, at the Sunday, February 5 rematch vs. the Giants. I'll be thinking of ten years ago this week in Boston, all through.
