No parade photos from him

Carpundit explains why the Patriots parade made him grumpy enough not to take photos:

... I almost got run over going to the T this morning because of the stupid crowd barricades that they weren't smart enough to leave open at the crosswalks for the morning commuters, and I'm being deafened by the idiots yelling at passing cars on Cambridge Street hours before the parade even starts two miles away, and I simply don't understand the mentality of someone whose best use of today is to appear at City Hall Plaza at 6AM, strip off his shirt, and start screaming, and there are like 50 of them within screaming distance of me, and it depresses me about the state of humankind and makes me question why I toil in a public-service job when that's the public I'm serving. ...

He also doesn't understand the parents who let their teens show up drunk enough to vomit on Boylston Street.

The shih-tzu hits the fan

Joel is nearing the end of his nightly run in Kenmore Square when he tries to get by a family with a small dog:

... Like a teether ball, this little Shitzu wrapped around me like three times. This little, four pound dog, just thrown through the air, then slams into my legs. Not to mention the fact that the old lady never let go of the leash. Oh my god. She, obviously, got pulled with me but her resistance rocketed the damn dog back towards her. SO, like a teether-ball with a hundred and something pounds of tension, the little damn dog rocketed back towards the owner. ...

At the parade

Hearts and Flowers snaps a Patriots parade-goer who looks suspiciously like a villain from a 1970's-era Marvel comic.

She also shoots the Duck-boats cavalcade.

Daigo gets up close and personal with the Pats (well, his camera does, at any rate).

Keegan takes a bunch of photos at the parade - and posts photos from the first and second Super Bowl victory parades/rallies.

Eeka: Uh, there's confetti falling from planes onto Canal St.

Paul Shanley

Domenico says:

... Shanley is symbolic of the Boston Scandal because it was the discovery process in his case that brought out many of the documents that revealed the extent of the problem. ...

Jhr61: Hope he lives to be a very old man in jail!

Funny Lookin': there's got to be a special place in Hell for those who abuse the trust of children:

There have got to be a whole lot of survivors who didn't step forward, or who stepped forward and couldn't go trough with the trial, breathing a silent prayer of thanks tonight for the lone remaining accuser who had the strength to see it through.

The morning after

Mats is probably pretty hoarse this morning:

If you live inside Route 128, you probably heard me scream "cover schemes, cover schemes!" throughout the fourth quarter.

But he concludes:

Thank you, Robert Kraft! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Three out of four and I still want more. This never gets old.

Sparky: Woo Woo!

Patriots Insider: Can they Three-peat?

Jen reveals her Super Bowl weight-loss plan:

Despite eating roughly my own weight in Super Bowl Party Food, I didn't gain so much as a pound. This leads me to conclude that alternately cheering one's team and running outside to stand in the cold because you're having a hot flash burns a whole lot of calories. ...

Domenico: Can anyone doubt they are a new dynasty or that they are the dominant force in football?

Jonelle: Hey, TO. How's the ankle?

I picked the BEST year to move back to Boston.

Girl: I could get used to this winning thing.

Wally disses most of the commercials and the halftime show:

... Paul McCartney has written some pretty incredible songs, but there's something immensely disturbing about seeing a bunch of 16-year-old girls dancing and screaming while a 60-year-old knight plays songs that were old before they were even born. ...

Charley gives his ultimate praise to Bellichick:

Genius, Dynasty... And let's add... Democrat.

Farmer Joe rides the wave, but can't help but sigh:

If only there were hockey this year.

Michael remembers:

It really wasn't all It really wasn't all that long ago that being a sports fan in Massachusetts meant pain and agony.

He says in a way he's sorry it had to happen to Philadelphia, which also deserves a win (just not at our expense).

Speaking of Philly, let's go now to The City of Brotherly Love:

Damn? How 'bout Damn, Damn, Damn! ... No one choked yesterday. It was a game fought to the end. There's some legitimate criticism to go around, but I hope this team remains intact.

You could get used to this

24-21!

Dave watches the game with his daughter and explains how cool it is they are watching history in the making and how, when she's older, she'll have such great memories:

Her eyes grew wide as I trailed off, a smile came to her lips, and I was ready for some beautiful father-daughter moment that transcended time and age.

"Daaaaaddddy??" She asked while moving her face close to mine. "Yes punkin?" I eagerly answered.

"Can I have another brownie now??"

Neal reports:

There are like six helicopters hovering over my neighborhood filming the lack of activity in Kenmore Square. Serves the crappy news stations (4, 5, 7, 25 & 56 -I don't have cable, so I'm sure there some in there too) right. Maybe they'll get back to their mission and actually report news.

Dear Jimmy Johnson: Shut up about Terrell Owens already. His team lost.

Deanna: Right now, i am happier then i have been in a long time. what an awesome feeling.

Tennischica38: We are the Champions...AGAIN!

Ghettodave: YES YES! PATRIOTS!!!
