Four years later, another huge letdown for fans

The crushing loss in last night’s Super Bowl left Patriots fans sulking out of sports bars across the region, in despair after the long-awaited game they hoped would rectify their loss to the New York Giants in the big game four years ago.

When the Giants took the lead in the last minute, fans from the Fenway to Foxborough pulled their hair, gasped, and shouted in a collective howl of rooter’s anguish, capping a see-saw of emotions that tugged at them throughout the close game. Shrieks of joy turned to cries of disbelief when Tom Brady’s last-gasp pass fell to the ground.
