DJDiva: I LOVE Tom Brady.
And vice-versa? Dan Shaughnessy Watch has been chronicling the CHB's latest affectation.
It wasn't the way the guy on the bicycle was talking on his cell phone while weaving in and out of traffic on Rte. 62 in Bedford during rush hour that got Michael Gee's attention. It was his 1993 Drew Bledsoe replica jersey.
Turns out Kraft's company is a backer of Matchmine, a startup that attempts to aggregate user ratings of all sorts of stuff to give you recommendations on new things you'd like (anybody remember Firefly?). In fact, the core technology comes out of the Patriots' technology team. This video is mainly of the company CEO explaining the technology at this week's DemoFall conference, but... Read more
Kristen feels compelled to post why she won't apologize for being a Patriots fan.
... I am tired, like, completely and utterly exhausted with the whole hating the Yankees thing. Now, don't get me wrong. I still hate them. A lot. Fire of a thousand exploding suns and what have you. But it is physically exhausting expending the energy necessary to work up the requisite... Read more
Former p.r. guy Seth Gitell writes how Belichick could have made things easier on himself.
Or maybe she was really trying to impress a point on him. Jason Schwartz goes to the same Newton temple as Kraft and reports on her Rosh Hashanah sermon, in which she discussed, for some reason, the goodness of Cal Ripken Jr. and how he is an especially good model in an era of sports scandals:
... This was really awkward.
The guy sitting... Read more
Mats Tolander explains why Bill Belichick really has nothing to apologize for and adds:
... Jets head coach Eric Mangini is a total douchebag who would never have had a job in NFL had it not been for Belichick. I hope Patriots run up the score in the most grotesque fashion the next time the two teams meet.... Read more
If a Belichick could check signals, how many signals could a Belichick check?
The answer to this new tongue twister is "all of them" apparently as Bill has admitted and apologized.
As opposed to the woodchuck in the original, whom we found out couldn't chuck wood period.
Kristen tells the Patriots to knock it off:
... We're very upset. You've put us in the unenviable position of having to defend the team's indefensible actions to freakin' Steelers and Colts fans (I've still never met an actual Colts fan), and Chargers players since The Danian obviously has something to say about this. WE WERE PERFECTLY HAPPY KNOWING THAT WE WERE WINNING BECAUSE... Read more
It's not enough that Marty got a Tedy Bruschi autograph at Brookline Booksmith today (after waiting in line for an hour), he also spotted Kevin Youkilis walking around with his wife and kid:
... And the guy managed to walk through town without being harassed or stopped for autographs or photos or anything - not even by me. I wanted to say hi, or... Read more
Yes: any substance that has harmful effects on a players’ health should be banned. And Harrison should be punished for breaking the rules. And I’d love to see harmful steroids and supplements eliminated.
First, many of us break the rules every day - stealing from work, lying on taxes, speeding, intentionally running red lights, watching or listening to copyrighted material online, bloging at work thus... Read more
Carmen knows this because she got his autograph yesterday at the Mt. Auburn Street Shaw's, which snagged him to help celebrate the re-opening of its pharmacy (really).
Lance cuts Harrison no slack:
Meet Rodney Harrison. Cheater, liar, thief. ...
Angela is more heartbroken than angry:
... Rodney made a huge mistake that hurts the Patriots and for that, I'm pissed. I'm not going to throw his jersey into a fire or boo him. ... he's going to have to make it up to me in October when he returns to... Read more
Steve Garfield objects to Dunkin' Donuts calling itself "Official Coffee and Breakfast Sandwich of New England Patriots Fans:"
... Sure, Dunkin Donuts can sign a contract with the New England Patriots to be the Official Coffee of the New England Patriots, but I never agreed to allow Dunkin Donuts to be the Official Coffee of Patriot Fan Steve Garfield.... Read more
Mats takes a few photos of the Patriots cheerleaders at the game against the Titans.
The ED ads are bad enough. Even worse is when he starts cracking jokes about them, Angela reports.
