I want the Patriots to lose: Reason 4

On December 12, 1982 the New England Patriots hosted Miami in what has become known as the "Snow Plow Game". Here's the story in a nut shell: Snow, lot's of snow. No score. 4:45 left in the game. Patriots coach hails the stadium snow plow operator. He veers off the field onto the field to quickly clear a patch for the New England kicker to kick a game winning field goal. Dolphins lose. Patriots win. I know this game was played some 25 years ago, but it tainted my childhood. From that day forward I hated the Patriots. The venom continues to this day.

My goal is for New England to lose so that New England Clam Chowder becomes New York Clam Chowder. Clam Chowder is the only thing I like from New England. Yeah, that's my goal.
