entemology: the patriots were undefeated going into the super bowl, but went 18 and 1 for the season.
synonymous with complete failure despite supreme confidence. in perhaps the biggest upset in super bowl history, the ny giants defeated the heavily favored new england patriots who entered super bowl xlii with a perfect 18-0 record. so sure of themselves, the patriots filed applications to patent the phrase “19-0” and “19-0 the perfect season” more than a week before the game, only to have their collective -ss-s handed to them by the giants.
