Tom Petty Day!

It's Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Day here at TFKoP. In preparation for Mr. Petty's big halftime show at the Super Bowl on Sunday, I have been playing all of my Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers vinyl and CDs.

They'll put on a great show. I saw them, with Jackson Browne opening, back in June of 2001 at the Tweeter Center in Camden, NJ. A buddy of mine got tickets through work and took 3 of us along with him. Awesome show! Thanks again for that ticket, DP!

And it is with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in mind that I send this message to the NY Giants about Super Bowl XLII incorporating some of the words of this great songwriter:

Dear New York Giants,

The New England Patriots "Won't Back Down" from you. Even though we expect you, the Giants, to "Breakdown" in this game, it will be just as much fun watching you fall apart as "The Waiting" was to witness it. We know that you'll score once or twice in this game, to which we'll shrug and say "You Got Lucky". While the Patriots are "Running Down a Dream" to finish the season 19-0 you will be "Free Fallin'" into the history books as the team that LOST Super Bowl XLII. And it's important to remember, "Even The Losers" get mentioned in history...just not very often. As the game wears on and Plaxico Burress is flat on his back looking up at the New England defense saying "You Wreck Me" and screaming "Let Me Up (I've Had Enough)", they Patriots will continue to march on. After the final seconds tick off the score clock and the Patriots can safely declare "It's Good to Be King", Super Bowl XLII will close by telling you "Don't Come Around Here No More" because it will know who the losers are. And it will also know the excitement the winners will be experiencing. And let's face it Giants, when it comes to the emotion of winning Super Bowl XLII, "You Don't Know How It Feels".

Go Patriots! And don't forget that in this day and age if you're not a Patriot, the government will track you down and prosecute you. So, you'd better be a Patriot
