Patriots Defeat Nazi Germany

The worst analogy to World War II.

Carl Bialik

I've found what may be the worst analogy in post-WWII history, at the end of a Mike Lupica column in the New York Daily News:

"If you read Peter King at, you know that Freddie Mitchell still won't shut up, which is kind of a troubling thought. Mitchell actually tells King that if the Eagles played the Patriots 10 times, they'd win eight. I'm pretty sure Germany felt the same way after World War II."
