*** Was Tom Brady perfect yesterday? No. He was intercepted three times. San Diego forced turnovers. But Brady proved that if he is not the best quarterback in the league, he is the luckiest. And luck doesn’t happen like that every week. So, Giants (who gave the Patriots a hell of a game in the final contest of the regular season) are back to face New England in the Super Bowl. Is this going to be sort of like the Yankees and Red Sox? Maybe…

*** From Connie Mayse:

Hello, Ned. I hope you are staying warm and that you get a holiday tomorrow, to mark the birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. This evening I caught up on the last few issues of JOTW and realized how convenient I find www.nedsjotw.com. You started the web site at about the time my email account refused to deliver your email version, no matter what I did to change settings and permissions. The web site makes it easy for me to view a couple of issues at one sitting, although doing so ensures that any witty comments I may have will not be timely.

I started today in a town north of Detroit, under sunny skies with a temperature of 7 degrees. After breakfast with dear old friends, my husband and I drove home to Cleveland, buoyed by a strong and gusty tail wind (helped with gas mileage). A pot of homemade chili helped chase the chill, and we’re about to dig into a hot blueberry cobbler as we sit before the fire and watch the Packers struggle with the Giants. Is this a great country, or what?

I hope 2008 is a wonderful year for you and your family, Ned. Blessings on your house – Connie Mayse

Hi Ned — “sae hay bok manhi pa-deuh say-yo” to you, which is how we say “Happy New Year” over here (“Auld Lang Syne” lyrics much more complicated — but then in English they are messy as well).

A fun job with the New York Knickerbockers below — from my lofty perch as a Miami Heat fan, I have absolutely no room to crow, as we are the only team WORSE than the Knicks right now. But … if I were to guess, I could see there being a lot of need for revisions to the media guide in terms of players, coaches and the like in the coming months.

Anyway, with the 1-15 Dolphins, 8-29 Heat and 5-7 U. Miami Hurricanes, I think my homeland of South Florida is the exact opposite of your Boston-based sports excitement. Though I would like to point out that there is absolutely no debate as to whether our current or former sports stars have ever used steroids — not with performances like these.

Hope all's well in VA. Take care.
