Ask Satan

This is a question I heard last night. “What the hell was that!”

Maybe it wasn’t actually a question, come to think of it, but I’ll answer it anyway.

In case you weren’t watching: the Giants were down 4 with 1:15 to play, third and five on their own 44. The Patriots blitzed and got to Eli Manning. Two Patriots had their hands on him. The play would all but have iced a Patriots victory and a 19-0 season.

Seconds later, Manning had somehow gotten away and thrown a pass. David Tyree, well covered by the Patriots, somehow caught the pass on his helmet for a 32-yard gain. The Giants continue downfield to a touchdown and the win.

How much is the difference between the sack and the reception worth? I can tell you.

Exactly one soul.

Yeah, I know I picked the Patriots, but it’s hard to pass up that type of opportunity.

Plus now I can still say the ’85 Bears were better.

Who's soul? Do tell.

You know, you'd have a kickass gossip column if you let loose everything you know.

Having trouble reading between the lines? Or do you think it might be misdirection?

Actually, it wasn't just one. Just one at a time. Busy moment.

The thing is, I don't really want to write a gossip column. I can't keep all those famous people straight anyway, except for politicians and baseball players. Too many of them all have the same problems, they just lose their flavor after ahile.
