A Night to Remember
Congratulations to the Boston White Socks, who last night won their first Super Bowl in 1,918 years! Led by their Most Valuable Person, Manny Martinez, the Socks dominated the Phoenix Cardinals in four games following their dramatic comeback against the Connecticut Yankees, finally reversing the dreaded “Curse of the Zamboni.”

It seems like only yesterday that Christopher Reeve, Jacques Derrida and I were at the Socks’ legendary Safeway Park, cheering for our favorite team together and praying that Boston would win just once before we died. Well, sorry guys, but in the words of Inspector Gadget: “missed it by that much!”

(Homage à l'maitre.)
