OMG, Matt Light and Gronk went to a party after the Super Bowl! Clutch those pearls closer to your chest, Mabel! Or as David Robichaud asks, as he wipes away a tear:

Harv is also predicting a 30-24 Patriots win. Don't scoff - this is the man who correctly predicted the Blizzard of '78. Going even farther back, J.L. Bell shows us... Read more

Henry Santoro notes:

If he practices today, we win Sunday's game by six points. If he doesn't practice...let's not think about it.

UPDATE: Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis says memo is misleading; people can't be arrested just for being outside; a Northeastern official agrees. More in the comments.

Onto the Super Bowl. Think Buckner will be calling Cundiff?
