Why Did This Happen?

You know, before this game, I thought to myself. I don't even want this Super Bowl for myself as a fan. I want us to win because Brady and Belichick deserve this. Because Robert Kraft and his family deserve this. Because our team was doubted and kept fighting all season, and they deserve this.
But obviously, the world doesn't always give to those who are most deserving. For some reason, luck favored the loud-mouthed, arrogant, barely-made-the-playoffs Giants.
It's unfortunate, and for an hour after the game, I thought to myself: what's the point in working hard and doing the right things if all of it can turn meaningless so quickly?
I mean, Brady dedicates his life to football, the Patriots dedicated their season to Myra Kraft, and their reward is a Super Bowl loss.
The 2007 Super Bowl loss was difficult to accept, but it wasn't philosophical. It didn't have me questioning the purpose of life. If anything, the message from that Super Bowl was nobody is perfect.
What's this Super Bowl say? That hard work, dedication, and fighting for a great cause is not worth it? That arrogant, pompous jerks will be rewarded?
Can someone please tell me the meaning of life right now? Because I don't even know any more.
