I did not expect to enjoy the Superbowl, but like just about everyone south or west of Massachusetts, I enjoyed it thoroughly. (See funny article here.) As is common to all, I was cheering for the underdog. But I of course had a vindictive desire to see former Viking Randy Moss denied the championship that he wants so badly. We have a (borrowed) word or two to describe my delight at seeing Moss's failure. What we really need (at least for Minnesotans) is a word to describe that vindictive desire for former-associates-turned-opponents to fail. On second thought, I guess we call that malice or envy.

On a less evil note, Lileks writes about the old stomping grounds here.
