"Spiteful" Wins

According to, "Lupul, Umberger hat-tricks guide Flyers to spiteful win". Ignoring why "hat-tricks" is inexplicably hyphenated, the story recounts the Flyers 8-2 fight-filled win over the Penguins.

Since the Pats play the Jets again this weekend, I am concerned that professional athletes find additional motivation in certain games against undermatched opponents (though the Flyers and Penguins are equals thus far). If the Pats are the best team in football, and are capable of putting 45+ points on every team, what will they do when they want a "spiteful" win? That seems to be the question everyone is asking, even after it was revealed tonight that the Jets videotaped the Pats sideline at Foxboro last year.

More importantly, how could I make the Ravens more spiteful than they already are?

I'm very glad I have Randy Moss this weekend in my fantasy playoff and that I'm going against somebody who has no Patriots on their roster. This weekend will be UGLY.

J-Red, since she didn't go for the Martin-Bertman role play, how about you are Belichik and she is Mangenius?

Similar idea, only this one involves video taping it.

I'm going against Mike Schweizer in Staci's league, and he has Moss, TO, and either Brady or Romo. I'm in for a hurting.

Ben - How about I could be Belichick and she could be sexy secretary Belichick had an affair with? That probably still involves videotape.

I think the Jets are going to be more submissive.
