Last night at the Super Bowl, the New England Patriots wiped the smirk off of Pete Carroll's face and replaced it with a look of "what the, I was supposed to win!" that UCLA fans are familiar with since 2006.

What look?  you know, that look:

Why does that lost look so familiar? Oh yes:

Right about the 19 second mark is when it makes an appearance.

The Patriots at the 1 yard line intercepted Russell Wilson. Seattle, needing a touchdown, had 20 something odd seconds left and a timeout, so they decided to get cute instead of just RUNNING THE BALL IN WITH MARSHAWN LYNCH and were intercepted, essentially ending the game.

Congratulations to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. By the way, was he even thought about when he was picking colleges before going to Michigan?

Go Bruins.
