Loyal Patriots fans crowded Boston bars near Fenway and beyond on Sunday night, watching with bated breath as their team fought a long, slow battle that eventually led to a sixth Super Bowl victory.
"We've seen about as much offence in this Super Bowl as the New Zealand Black Caps have shown in their recent test cricket matches lately", one commentator said.
In years past, the Super Bowl MVP took home a new auto as a prize, but that tradition ended several years ago, so at least Gilmore won't be missing out on that.
"I don't think they was ready to play", Harvey said of the Rams, who only scored 3 points.
At 41, Tom Brady is also the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl.
Brady was joined in the record books by 66-year-old Bill Belichick who becomes the oldest coach to hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy, Reuters reported. New England did not score the game's first touchdown until the fourth quarter.
That moment aside fans of attacking football had little to cheer with Gostkowski's 42-yard field goal accounting for all the first half scoring. They picked off Unitas twice and held the Colts to 11 first downs and 181 total yards.
