I don't like the Giants at all, but that day nothing was better than having a front row seat when they punched the Pats in the mouth and crapped on their party.
With that said, I also know that almost (maybe even more) painful was the Pats losing at Home to the Jets in the Divisional round 2 years ago. They were the #1 seed and the Jets went into their house and shut them up. So I wouldn't mind watching the Ravens disappoint all those chowds in Massachusetts tomorrow evening.
A loss tonight or in 2 weeks will surely be disappointing but at least I know the Pats have a legit chance to contend next season. Indeed you should welocme a Pats loss as it serves as diversion therapy...you don't really have anything else to look forward to. It's the little things in life.
