New England Patriots fans petition to have Super Bowl, Wolfrum Whammy reversed
One of the great things about golf is that it’s usually hard to blame a result on officiating. Sure, there are some who have complained about Tiger Woods purporting to have bent rules in regards to his lies on the odd occasion, but normally in those cases, it’s just a case of Woods knowing the rules better than anyone else.
But mostly, whoever puts the ball in the hole 72 times in the least amount of shots wins, and no one has any complaints. Other sports, however, quite often have games decided by a referee’s decision.
Which brings us to Part 72 of the ongoing “WorldGolf.com Wolfrum Whammy” series. It seems Patriots fans are livid about the N.Y. Giants’ final, game-winning drive in the Super Bowl. They’re so mad, in fact, they’ve started a petition to get the game reversed.
We the fans of the New England Patriots demand that the National Football League and Commissioner Roger Goodell review the last 1:40 minutes of the Super Bowl held February 3rd 2008. At 1:22 in the fourth quarter, after Jacobs attained a first down the clock was stopped. The following are the rules regarding clock management in a game. …
… The Commissioner’s powers under this section (UNFAIR ACTS) include the imposition of monetary fines and draft choice forfeitures, suspension of persons involved, and, if appropriate, the reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game, either from the beginning or from the point at which the extraordinary act occurred.
Now, I kinda get a kick out of the Patriots fans complaint here, mainly because that as a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, I remember vividly how much Seattle Seahawks fans complained about the officiating of that Super Bowl. The one the Steelers won. Their fifth Super Bowl title.
But honestly, I’m willing to let bygones be bygones with Patriots fans. I’ll take the Mitt Romney approach that it’s in the best interests of the United States of America for myself and Pats’ fans to make amends.
Sure, I upset a lot of Pats fans when I called their team annoying. And upset even more when I wrote that Tiger Woods could single-handedly beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. And then I upset even more of them when I put a Whammy on New England, thus leading to their inevitable downfall.
But now, I’m willing to call a truce. I’m ready to, once and for all, stop writing about the now-infamous “Wolfrum Whammy” forever.
Provided you sign this petition, of course.

So why did it make me so happy? Other than the fact I'm generally a naysaying kind of contrary prickish individual, I really hated all the hype surrounding their perfect season bid. I also hate the stinking superbowl which is no longer super and barley a bowl considering all the extraneous garbage that goes along with it.
Take a perfect, well cooked steak and ruin it by dumping a whole bottle of steak sauce on it and that sums up the superbowl experience for me.
A halftime show should be a marching band and John Madden saying a bunch of crap that barley makes sense. Sure I love Tom Petty. Who doesn't? But that's not football. That's not even Canadian football.
Anyway, howdy Bill. I much prefer to rant about important stuff like American Idol, Britney Spears, and Hillary Clinton's wardrobe, but have been hindered as of late by a trifling error message.
