Can't say I'm overly sympathetic

Certain of us northeasterners won't exactly be crying for the New York Football Giants, now that they've had their Super Bowl rings stolen. Ha, ha. The thieves disabled the alarm system at E.A. Dion Inc., cut a hole in the roof and made off with a safe that weighed at least 1,000 pounds. The loss was discovered Sunday by a Dion employee, who went to the business when she was unable to access her work e-mail from home, apparently because phone lines had been cut. The heist could have taken place at any time over the weekend, Sgt. Jim Keane said Wednesday. Well, I don't think it was the phone lines that were carrying that employee's e-mail messages, but you get the idea. Maybe there should have been a radio back-up? How is it possible there wasn't one? Unfortunately, only the Giant staffers got hit by this one. The players received their rings already. Bummer. And you conspiracy theorists out there, go ahead and get started. The company is in Attleboro, Mass., which is quite possibly the single greatest concentration of Pats fans in the world. Can you say, "Inside job"?
