    2009 Summer of Death: Laid To Rest

    This summer has been the most ridiculous summer of all time. It started out with nothing but rain and rain and rain, until none of us could take it anymore. Then, in between that, there were sunny days, but during those sunny days, buckets of people died. Let's quickly recap.

    In no particular order:

    1.) Michael Jackson
    2.) Farrah Fawcett
    3.) Billy Mays
    4.) Eunice Kennedy
    5.) Ted Kennedy
    6.) Don Hewitt (creator of 60 Minutes)
    7.) Robert Novak
    8.) Les Paul
    9.) Walter Cronkite
    10.) Steve McNair

    When Uncle Teddy is laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetary on Saturday, hopefully with him will go 2009 The Summer of Death, but before that happens I would like to take this opportunity to lay one more thing to rest.

    First of all, I take no pleasure in the deaths of these greatly talented people who have passed away this summer, but I will take pleasure in hopefully laying to rest one of the most annoying topics of discussion in the history of Boston sports and I am talking about Super Bowl XLII.

    The New England Patriots will play their third pre-season game tonight against the Washington Redskins, but all the pundits are chomping at the bit for their final pre-season game at Gillette Stadium against the NY Giants.

    People can't wait to talk about Tom Brady's rematch or Eli Manning proving his worth. Guess what, neither of them will play more than a few snaps and it will likely be the most boring "re-match" in the history of the NFL. So let's all agree to lay to rest talk of Super Bowl XLII and move on to the 2009-2010 undefeated New England Patriots season (there I said it!!)

    I didn't really realize how many deaths there were this year, but I am excited to hear that SB 42 shall also be laid to rest in 2009, thanks for that.
