Looking like an old man trying to give one to the Gipper, Farve hipped, hopped, flipped and then flopped in his bid to play in the big one with Real Super Bowl Contenders.
Farve, in the first half did make a genuine but feeble effort, flicking a ton of short tosses for a five yard+ average and even flipping a five yard touchdown pass. Then exhaustion set in for the second half and the Old Boy looked more like a Corner Pimper than a Pro Passer, with a series of dinky doo passes and plenty of miscues.
Farve wound up with a 2 Intercept Plus a Fumbleroosky effort in the worst position possible - tied after both halves. Nothing could have been worse than trying to put five quarters of stress on old dinosaur bones loaded with calcium deposits and hairline fractures from centuries gone by, but that was the task on the old man, a near impossible one at that.
Thankfully the Coup de Grace was short and swift, a 45 yard field goal coming early in the overtime, sending home an old timer who really should not have have even been there in the first place. Like Tom Watson and Kenny Perry earlier in the golfer's playing year, a popular but underdog member of the Royal but Ancient always seems to come up a buck short and without a cigar.
Onward to the Super Bowl, as they say, where the young and vigorous shall play to the fans delight.
Perhaps a bronzed "bust" dinner plate for Farve?
