I've Seen The Needle

And boy, it has to hurt, big time.

Not the tattoo so much as the fact that this guy got it in anticipation of TFP's Perfect 19-0 season (FT). Only trouble is, the Patriots didn't go 19-0. Them New York (Football) Giants kinda ruined that and saw to it that TFPs had one big fat number 1 in their L column for 2007-8.

Everyone, say it with me: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Elsewhere, did you ever wonder what happened to all the stuff they printed up in case the losing team won? Well, there are going to be kids in third world countries this week who will be ever-so greatful that TFPs didn't win the Super Bowl (FT).

My guess is that there was a TON more Patriots stuff printed up than there was Giants stuff, since everyone expected them to win. Oh well, while the Patriots earned themselves a big fat FAIL, they did manage to clothe a small chunk of the Christian Children's Fund crowd at the same time, so it's not a total loss...

For those not familiar with the story, there's a reason why I (and many other bloggers and journalists alike) call the New York Giants the "New York (Football) Giants." Way back in the day, the modern San Fransisco Giants once played in New York, and both teams were extant at the time. So, folks just said either New York-Baseball Giants or -Football Giants.
