Eric Mangini's 115th Dream

Eric Mangini is not inherently a likable character. He's schlubby, he's obsessive and he always looks exhausted. He was on "The Sopranos;" that's about all we can come up with, positively. But everyone will be rooting for him Sunday.

In a certain way, the Jets derailing the Patriots' perfect season would be the ideal, most beautiful way for this all to go down. People are concerned about the postgame handshake now? Wait until Mangini destroys Belichick's dream season.

There's no way that's gonna happen of course, but man, it would make Mangini a hero and completely eradicate the team's disappointing season. If only. If only.
