All we do is win win win

Can one tiring of winning? Can ‘once in a lifetime’ moments happen to you so often that they become almost the norm? As a winner can a point be reached where you start feeling bad for everyone else? Do you almost wish you could share the wealth with those less fortunate?

Nope. We win, you lose, basically always. Sorry?

Sure, throwing up the graphic that the city of Atlanta has a grand total of one championship across all the major sports while Boston has 33 (now 34) was a little mean. And yes, having a parade down our streets basically every year has become a little routine, but it’s a small price to pay. Is it a little unfair that in recent years, the city of Boston has been on the positive side of the biggest comebacks in both baseball and now football history? Sure, but life’s not fair, and god just likes Boston more than your city by a mile and a half.

We recently had the greatest, most clutch DH in the history of baseball retire, only for the greatest player in NFL history to further cement his legacy this year. There will most likely never be another Tom Brady in the NFL. Many of his record will never be broken, and going forward the conversation will be heated about who is the second-best of all time, because the top spot is now undisputed and beyond reach. The conversation around greatest QB+Coach combo is even more out of reach for everyone else. It really is all a bit silly.

And the greatest thing about it? Next year the Patriots will be favored to win the Superbowl again. They will basically be a lock to make, at least, the AFC championship game. It’s an embarrassment of riches, one that will likely never happen again, to any city.

Feels good man, feels good.

PS: Can the Pats win the SB next year in less dramatic fashion though? All 7 of their games have been nail biters, and it can’t be healthy to be on edge for 4 hours straight. Just give me a nice blowout by halftime, so I can spend the second half of the game in ‘feel good’ mode, rather than having it come at literally the last play in overtime. Thanks god, I know you won’t disappoint.

    75% through the article before I figured what in the name of god this was about.

    I hate you and your team, I don’t know who sold their soul to the devil but they are getting their money’s worth. I just want one effing title I can celebrate in Atlanta but I don’t think it will ever happen lol. Braves won one but it was the year my mom was dying of cancer so didn’t exactly count for me.

      Plus the one Braves win is almost more of a reminder of how often they failed to win it all with that absolute monster of a team than the fact they did get one. But at least you are the minority in Atlanta, most people there don’t even know they have pro sports.

        Yeah our fans are not the greatest, it’s quite the change from when I was in Illinois and Chicago fans! Oh well, at least the team is young for the most part I guess.

    Kinda like what Atlanta Fans had this year, right? Sure you want to request that one?

    I do have to admit, it looked good on two rich white guys this weekend. One supposedly runs a country and very publicly bailed on his team when it went down 28-3. The other one came down from his box seats around the same time to enjoy the victory on the sidelines with the team he owns. Not sure how many TV shots we had of Arthur Blank’s face in the last quarter, but his wife’s face sure said a lot, like’ oh man, I don’t think I am going to have a good night.”
