Why the Patriots Were Bound to Lose

I told my friend that, even with two minutes left in the game and the Pats up, I felt the Giants were going to win. Why? I recently absorbed the lesson of Greek tragedy: hubris will get you every time, and too much success breeds failure. You have to know yourself: you are not a god or an animal, but a man. (That's what that Socratic principle means, not 'Sit around all day introspecting.')

  1. But "football" means "soccer" in Greece.

  2. BTW, did you profit from your insight? Surely you didn't absorb that Socratic lesson after the bookies stopped accepting wagers.

  3. If someone or something enjoys unending successes, surely hubris will take them down as advertised, but when? How do you figure when to sell them short?

    Right before they lose, but only if no one else realizes it too.

    The page is so wonderful that I want to write something about myself.
    According to the agreement of the game, I should get the Scions Of Fate gold to go into the world of the game and SOF gold is sold by some companies. The Scions Of Fate money is not free and it will take some money to own the cheap SOF gold. To my lucky, my friends buy sof gold for me.
