I am a sucker for watching history, especially in the sports arena. I fell for McGuire and Sosa's trip past Roger Maris and Bonds' run past them - asterisks aside, the history watching was exciting. I loved Cal Ripken's historical consecutive games started streak. I rooted for the Patriot's in last year's Super Bowl so we could see a historic perfect-season. This year we watched history again, albeit the sadistic-type: The Detroit Lions are the first ever NFL team to go 0-16!
