Over the years, the Super Bowl has been afflicted with some real clunkers. But last night’s game ended the season in style. Each half started with tentative probes of the opposing defense and each half ended with a flurry of offensive scores.
I had my doubts about this Super Bowl. The off week between the Conference Championship and the Super Bowl can wreak havoc on the psyche of a first time participant. But the Panthers impressed me with their resiliency, teams often expend so much energy in catching up that they just can’t pull ahead. Not this team - they kept coming back and I think that they had another comeback left in them when the clock ran out.
Kudos to the Patriots, a worthy champion, and the Panthers, who will be back.
