I thought it was over.  28-3 in the 3rd quarter.  I texted my football-loving daughter, Alyssa, that it was another boring blowout.  She replied, "Yep." So, I went out on the balcony to work the Sunday crosswords and enjoy some fresh air.  I wasn't even thinking about football, until I got a text from Alyssa that said, "So much for the blowout."  I rushed back into the apartment, and turned on the TV just in time to see the last few plays of overtime, climaxing in James White's game-winning touchdown run.  It was an historic comeback, led by an historic quarterback, and I completely missed it.

As Jimmy Buffet said in Margaritaville, "It's my own damn fault."  I knew better than to ever count Tom Brady and Bill Belichick out.  Because, as the old saying goes, "The opera ain't over 'til the fat lady sings."   Wish I had hung around for the whole show.
