NFL to re-air Super Bowl XXXVI as ‘Classic’

Remember when “Varitek” split the uprights? … Um, yeah, me neither.

But I do remember a whole lot else about Super Bowl XXXVI, and I’m sure all of you do too. And if you want to relive it one more, in another way than before, the NFL Network will give you that chance on Saturday.

Set your DVRs and TiVos and such for 8 p.m., when the Super Bowl Classics series provides a re-airing of the Patriots-Rams epic.

New England actually has someone from the opponent that night on the roster now, and a rather significant one at that. But Torry Holt said he hasn’t talked much about that (from his perspective) heartbreaking loss much since arriving in Foxborough.

“We may have said ‘that was a heck of a game’ — which it was, but nothing in detail and definitely not for any length of time,” Holt said. “You know, that’s come and gone. It was a hell of a game, two hell of a teams going at it. But nah, I haven’t had any dialogue with him, any extended (conversation) with him, anything like that.”

My guess is Torry might not be inclined to tune in Saturday night. But I’m sure plenty of you will.
