Yes, this is a football site, but since the home office is in beautiful downtown Framingham, Massachusetts (home of Lou Merloni!) I thought it was only appropriate that post 1918 be something related to last night's Red Sox victory. I thought this was hilarious for those who didn't notice: after the Red Sox won last night, relief pitcher Curt Leskanic did snow angels behind the pitcher's mound in tribute to the New England Patriots. I originally thought that Boston was the first city to have both Super Bowl and World Series champions since Pittsburgh in 1979, but after more thought I realized that's not the case: New York in 1986 (Giants and Mets) and, if you want to get expansive, the Bay Area in 1988-9 (49ers and A's -- the 49ers were the only NFL team in town at that point) also qualify.

The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
