On September the 25th, year of our Lord 2011, one of the happiest days of Munchausen's life, the Buffalo Bills defeated the New England Patriots by a final score of 34-31. They went down 21-0 in the 2nd quarter, at which point Munchausen confidently assured his compatriots, "It ain't over. Have faith in the Fitz." Hours later, Munchausen would shout joyous curses against Tom Brady amidst the fountains of spraying beer. Unbeknownst to Muchausen, it weren't over.
Erstwhile, as the pipe organ raged deep in the dank dark bowels of Foxboro, a creature of pure evil plotted from deep within its hoodie. After many hours of gnashing teeth and anguished wailing, a scabrous laughter could be heard. "Yesss. YesSSS... YESSSS!!!!!!!"
The plot commenceth on November the 6th, 2011. "Oh no, we Patriots are to meek and meager to resist the efforts of Manning the Lesser! We are overcome on the last drive, thus ensuring the middling Giants entrance to the playoffs! Oh the pain of reliving our Super Bowl loss in the ever so meaningful regular season!"
The plot continueth.
On New Year's Day, 2012, at the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar as predicted, Belichick inflicted his vengeance upon our beloved Bills. The Patriots laid down in the 1st quarter as the Bills rushed out to an all-too-familiar 21-0 lead. Then the Hoodie's plan came clear to our sad eyes, already teary from an all-too-long regular season. The Patriots gaily pranced all over Gailey's plans, coming back to rout our beloved Bills 49-21.
Ahh, but this was just prelude. Sauce for the goose, as it were. An ethereal sauce to many. After all, who could have predicted that the Giants would make the playoffs by a single win. Who could have predicted that they would then run the table, beating the Falcons, Packers, and 49ers en route to a Super Bowl berth?? WhO could have preDIcted THis!??? INDEED, WHO!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!???????
THE PLOT FINISHETH.
On February the 5th, the New York Giants will meet the New England Patriots in a rematch of Super Bowl XLII. At this early date, surely the winner is uncertain. But I guarantee you -- everything is proceeding as a certain someone has foreseen.
