The night of extraordinary inner conflict for Pax Arcana ended somewhat predictably last night, as the juggernaut Patriots took out our beloved Giants with a last minute surge of raw power and precision — and the inevitable bad pick by Eli.
Still in our Giants T-shirt this morning, we think we got the best of both worlds last night. Eli was superb. The Giants roll into the playoffs with a good head of steam. Only two starters (both Giants) were injured. And the Pats, whom we respect and admire more than any team in history, finished the season undefeated.
We hope to revisit our inner conflict on February 3, 2008.
