A football tidbit...

...from TMQ:

the NFL's passing yardage leader has never gone on to win the Super Bowl in the same season. For XLII consecutive years, the passing yardage leader has not been the quarterback to hoist the trophy as the Super Bowl concludes. Never.
This year's passing yardage leader if you haven't guessed. It's New England's Tom Brady, who finished with 4,806 passing yards.

So, sorry all you Patsy fans. I know you were looking forward to 19-0.

Of course, that sounds like one of those streaks that means something until it doesn't, like the incumbent party always winning the White House if the Redskins win their last home game before the election. That one went down in 2004.

But, well, some of us are grasping at straws out here.
