Latest NYT PLAY Mag Essay: 19-0 vs. 18-1

So: Would you rather see the Pats finish the perfect season or suffer the biggest upset in pro sports history?

That's the topic of my latest essay for the New York Times' PLAY Magazine. (Here's the link to PLAY's main page this week.)

My answer? You'll have to check it out. But regular blog readers know I have been conflicted all season long. Still not sure how I'm going to go. (This is different from who I think will win, which is the Pats. This is about what result I'm rooting for: The Pats to win or the Pats to lose.)

Check it out, and weigh in through the Comments (and feel free to take the poll to the upper-right, if you haven't yet).

No way would it be the biggest upset ever. Jets-Colts in SBIII, Dryden's Habs over Orr's Bruins, the Miracle Mets, hell, even the 2001 Pats over the Rams, all bigger in team sports. If we're going all of professional sports, throw Buster Douglas in there as well. It would most likely be top 10, but not number 1.
