Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday: You Never Forget Your First Time

When the Patriots face the St. Louis Rams in London on Sunday, it’ll be a Super Bowl XXXVI reunion.

The two franchises met at the conclusion of the 2001 season in the Louisiana Superdome; giving NFL fans one of the great Super Bowls of all-time.

This game is famous in a few respects:

  1. It launched the Belichick-Brady era and New England’s first Super Bowl victory.
  2. It marked one of the few times in league history where an NFL TV analyst was wrong…and openly acknowledged it.
  3. The Rams went in to freefall following this game.
  4. Most importantly, it gave America another feel good story in the months that followed the horrific events of 9/11.

New England’s win over the Rams remains one of the great upsets in sports history.

Unless of course, you believe all of that Spygate nonsense.
