Court Releases Aaron Hernandez Surveillance Images

July 25, 2013

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.

Michael Vick Leads NFL Pro Bowl Voting

December 9, 2010

I guess NFL fans can easily forgive and forget.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, just a year and a half out of prison for his conviction surrounding dog fighting, is currently the leading vote-getter in fan balloting for the Pro Bowl.

From CNN:

Vick started the season as a backup to Kevin Kolb but has set the league on fire since becoming the starter. He’s averaging 249 yards passing and 52 rushing per game, and he has scored 21 touchdowns.

Vick, who served 18 months in federal prison and was vilified after being convicted on charges related to dogfighting, had 729,838 Pro Bowl votes as of Thursday morning. He leads the Indianapolis Colts’ Peyton Manning, who’s having a rough season, by more than 38,000 votes and the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady by more than 100,000.

“I’ve made three Pro Bowls before, but this one would definitely mean more than the others,” Vick told The Press of Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Wednesday. “I’m just working as hard as I can to change things around.

Randy Moss Returns to Minnesota

October 6, 2010

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.”

Easy Like Sunday Morning…

September 19, 2010

Got to love Sunday mornings when the kids come in at 6:45 a.m. ready to start the day!

I guess that’s why they say it’s “Easy Like Sunday Morning”.  Or is it because it’s NFL Sunday!!! After church 😦

Raiders…Patriots…and then the 49ers vs. Saints on Monday night!

Tom Brady Involved in Car Accident

September 9, 2010

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.

What Was Bill Belichick Thinking?

November 16, 2009

Of course, I had to walk away for 5 minutes to care to my kids and missed one of the “craziest” calls I have ever heard of. Thank you for Sportscenter!

The New England Patriots fell short on Bill Belichick’s decision to gamble on fourth-and-2 from the Patriots own 28, turning the ball over to Peyton Manning and the Colts with two minutes to go. As you should have expected, Manning drove the entire length of the field left (28 yards) and scored the winning touchdown with just 12 seconds to play.

Colts win 35-34.

So, was Belichick correct in trying to end the game with the fourth-and-2 play? Should he have punted?


From the Associated Press:

“We were preparing to go 60, 70 yards,” Manning said. “It was a great play by the defense, shortened our field.”

Indianapolis (9-0), which trailed by 17 in the second quarter and 34-21 with 4 minutes left, got its most improbable win during the streak, which tied the Patriots for the second-longest in league history.

When Belichick decided to go for it instead of punting with 2:08 to go, Tom Brady threw to Kevin Faulk, who made a juggling catch but was pushed backward and came up just short.

“We tried to win the game on that play,” Belichick explained. “I thought we could make the yard. We had a good play, we completed it. I don’t know how we couldn’t get a yard.”

Manning needed just four plays before hooking up with Wayne for the winning score. Manning finished with four touchdown passes and Brady had three in the matchup of AFC division leaders.

While it was another magical comeback for Manning, this one was set up by Belichick’s bungled play-calling. Belichick called two timeouts on that key series, the second to set up the fourth-down play.

The Patriots (6-3) have now lost five of the last six in this series.
