No, not where he's been the last two days, but where he buys those flowers for Gisele. Would you believe the Stop & Shop on Newport Avenue in Quincy? How else to explain the sign Anali spotted there?
But, Jason wonders, does it matter?
So who's going to win the Super Bowl - again?!?
It's one-stop shopping at Boston Sports Media Watch, where Bruce Allen compiles all the links.
Exclusive pre- and post-game field access, plus some playoff tickets, to make up for the station's loss of what it had thought was exclusive rights to broadcast the Patriots game.
What do you mean we can only see the Pats game on four stations tomorrow? What's wrong with the other stations?
CBS AND NBC to carry game against the Giants. ABC, PBS just give up all pretensions of caring.
Jay Fitzgerald hears from a blog reader of his now living in Madagascar - the guy now has a satellite radio that lets him get NPR and he wonders if he'll be able to get Patriots games:
... Imagine sitting on a lawn chair in Madagascar, sipping Three Horses Beer and listening to Gil Santos and Gino Cappelletti call a Pats game. Talk about heaven. ...
Better watch out, Fitzy, this kid will have your job some day:
Kristen sure wishes so:
... They're so good at doing their talking on the field, as it were, but you just know that they let loose occasionally and I would LOVE to hear it. Just once. Especially Rodney. 'Cause you know Rodney was preachin'. After that 4th down stop at the goal line? ...
... After last week's slugfest with the Eagles, Tedy Bruschi predicted that the rest of the games would be dogfights. And if there's one thing Tedy Bruschi is not, it's a liar. ...
Denton: Thank you Brian Billick.
Thankfully, some things around here have gotten better since the Patriots' first Super Bowl appearance back in '86, including our grammar and our hair (oh, yeah, and the Patriots):
Posted by Jim Lehmann, who's been busy posting and linking enough Boston TV promos and commercials to keep you busy for awhile.
Jason Butler marvels at the score of the Pats/Bills game:
... And we don't even hate the Bills. How many points will we score on Shula's "Asterisk" Dolphins? On the "You cheated, so you didn't really beat us all those times" Steelers? On the Jets? Can the scoreboards roll triple digits?
Boyfriend's family Christmas party in New Hampshire or couch in the Boston area to watch the Patriots play the Steelers on Dec. 9? Fortunately, the NFL has rescheduled that game to 4:30, so Angela can attempt a compromise:
... I will spend Noon to 3:30 at his family’s party, then haul ass from New Hampshire (it just HAS to be in N.H.) and make it home before the end of the first quarter. He still thinks this is rude but I was quick to remind him that he left my family reunion this past August after 30 minutes to go to a stupid Slayer concert. As if a concert even comes close to a Patriots game. Geesh.
... I've had to fight off the urge to puke for about six minutes but it's not bad. I liken it to tears of joy - this would be victory vomit. Good thing I didn't have a halftime snack or else this could get ugly. ...
Kristen confesses to a crisis of faith:
... I admit it, I lost faith. I didn't think the Patriots were winning that game. I tried to rationalize it and tell myself, "Well, it's better to lose to the Colts now than in the playoffs, right?" and "Maybe winning all of the games is actually a bad thing. Maybe Belichick is Obi Wanning right now." But honestly, none of that made me feel any better.
I'm not even going to complain about the officiating because that would just be sore winning, but I will say that if the Patriots can win a football game where Tom Brady performs well below the admittedly sky-high standards he's set for himself this season and the defense can look tired and, frankly, old, then this is one hell of a football team.
Always Thinking About Papelbon: The Tom Brady/Randy Moss relationship is more satisfying than all my previous romantic relationships combined.
Miss Von Schtoop: We ARE the Evil Empire Now Beyotch!
Sports of Boston cautions: If the Colts defense plays as they did today for the rest of the season, they'll be very tough to beat.
Angela is, of course, rooting for the Patriots in tomorrow's match against the Peytonettes.
On Boston Brat, Angela registers her disgust with Modell's, where she went in search of some clothing with which to support her beloved Patriots:
... I frantically searched through rack after rack of work out pants, sports bras, and jogging suits. Finally, I found one rack with something, and I'll be God Damned, it was a PINK FLIPPING SWEATSHIRT with a Patriots logo. PINK! PINK!!!!!! Show me one spot of pink in the Patriots uniform and I’ll shut up. Oh yeah, you can't because THERE IS NO PINK IN THE UNIFORM! I don't even look good in pink, I look pasty. On the other hand, I look wonderful in Navy blue which actually is in the Patriots uniform. I could save myself $60 and just buy a plain FLIPPING PINK SWEATSHIRT because you wouldn't know the flipping difference! ...
Patriots season-ticket holders who might have their tickets taken away now that the Patriots can get their names from StubHub get no sympathy from Angela:
... If you want to sell your tickets, fine. If you want to sell your tickets for well above the face value, fine. But don't get upset when you get in trouble for doing so. Don't try and make yourself look like the good guy being picked on by the giant. It's illegal and it's unfair to people who want to go to games but aren't lucky enough to have season tickets and rich enough to afford your ridiculous markup. ...
