…we’re going with the grey hoodie today!
Super Bowl 49! Here’s the pick:
New England Patriots 27
Seattle Seahawks 24
History Nerd Alert (from a PR guy): For everyone who is still upset about the Patriots and their deflated balls, can we all just reflect on American history for a minute.
This country was, in part, founded by people from Boston who didn’t believe in following the rules. The American Revolution began in Boston, as the British retaliated for the Boston Tea Party and the New England “Patriots” fought back! The twelve other colonies joined with Massachusetts, forming the Continental Congress, which appointed George Washington to take charge of militia units besieging British forces in Boston.
Long story short…we won our Independence!
The moral of this story: Go Patriots!
By the way, I assume that most of you are thinking this as you read this:
The Attleboro District Court has released court documents that include a number of photos taken from home video surveillance at Aaron Hernandez’s home that show him holding what appears to be a handgun the night of the murder.
It’s believed that this could be the weapon that was used to murder Odin Lloyd that night.
While some of the photos are a bit grainy, the two below seem pretty damning to me.
From CBS News:
The image is from Aaron Hernandez’s North Attleboro home and was captured on his own security camera. Police say the images show Hernandez getting out of a silver Nissan with Ernest Wallace.
The photo was taken 10-15 minutes after Odin Lloyd was murdered less than a mile away.
Hernandez appears to have a black handgun in his left hand.
…starts tonight! Go Patriots Go!!!
Brett Favre finally has someone to throw the ball to and it couldn’t come sooner as he has been KILLING my Fantasy Football teams this season.
The New England Patriots have sent Moss back to the team that made him famous, the Minnesota Vikings, in exchange for a 3rd round draft pick. This comes just two days after a 41-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Monday night where Moss and zero catches and only one pass thrown his direction by quarterback Tom Brady.
Moss was a first-round draft pick of the Vikings back in 1998 after his college days at Marshall. He spent his first seven seasons with Minnesota, where he became one of the biggest playmakers in the NFL. He was later traded to Oakland in 2005, where he had two sub par years before being reborn New England.
I’m not sure if the Patriots got full value for Moss with this trade, but I guess you take what you can get, right? It’ll be interesting to see how Favre and Moss play together and if it will bring either back to their stats of days gone by!
Thoughts on the trade?
From the Associated Press:
The New England Patriots traded the seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver to the Vikings on Wednesday, giving Moss the exit he expected all along and sending him back to the place where he became a superstar, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the transaction had not been officially announced.
“When you have done so much and put so much work in, it kind of feels like I am not wanted,” Moss said in September. “I am taking that in stride and playing my final year out and whatever the future holds is what it holds, but it is kind of a bad feeling—feeling not wanted. It is not like my production has gone down.”
Moss later backtracked from those statements, telling The Associated Press that he hoped to finish his career with the Patriots.
“I don’t even know what my fate is, and for me to be 33 years old, it’s like I’m held at bay, and that’s definitely an uncomfortable thing,” he said. “If this is my last year here, I want to leave as good as I came in here in ’07. I know that’s really hard to duplicate, but I don’t want the fans, the organization, coaches or my teammates to have a sour taste in their mouths about Randy Moss.”
Tom Brady, quarterback of the NFL’s New England Patriots, was involved a two-car crash this morning in Boston’s Back Bay section. But don’t worry Patriots fans…he’s fine and won’t miss any playing time! :)
From the Boston Globe:
“Patriots QB Tom Brady was in a car accident this morning. He was not hospitalized and is expected at Gillette Stadium today,” the team said in a posting on its Facebook site.
An official tweet from the team this morning said Brady “reports that he’s OK.”
A sedan and a passenger van collided at 6:34 a.m. at Commonwealth Avenue and Gloucester Street, said Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald.
The driver of the sedan was able to get out and was walking around after the crash. A man was stuck in the back of the passenger van and had to be removed with the Jaws of Life, then transported to an area hospital, MacDonald said. He said the traffic light was hit during the accident and Boston police are investigating.
