20 years ago...
No, I'm not writing about the last time I posted something new. Today, the Patriots are celebrating their amazing 1985 Super Bowl run. Unfortunately, being blown out in the Super Bowl and having a drug scandal right after it somewhat tainted the season. However, this was a great season -- playoff wins on the road against the Jets, Raiders, and Dolphins (who were 15-1 and hadn't lost to the Pats in Florida since sometime in the 70's), [correction: Dolphins were 12-4, but did give the 85 Bears their only loss -- thanks to Patsy2k for picking up the mistake] great special teams play, Andre Tippet, John Hannah, and let's not forget Mosi Tatupu.
To commemorate this season, the Patriots are selling, "Squish the Fish," t-shirts. I'm thinking of a person who would enjoy wearing that in Pro Player stadium next year.
