Better late than never, right?

I finally got around to uploading my Chronicle appearance. I hope they don’t mind. I chopped it up to include only my part, so excuse the icky editing.

My favorite part is the choice of music when panning across the “Shrine.” Pure genius. They did such a great job. Even months later, I’m still honored to have been chosen.

For the record, although he is very appreciative of their time and effort, my dad is convinced the appearance helped jinx the Super Bowl. We divulged secrets, he says. We brought outsiders in, he attests.

But the weirdest part of all is when we were filming in the living room, they asked us if we had any Patriots DVDs to pop on the TV. We put in the commemorative Super Bowl 36 DVD and as they were filming us watch TV, the infamous Justin Watson, “I like our chances,” scene popped on screen. “Number One offense in the league,” Watson shrieked. My dad and I shivered. It was almost like foreshadowing. My dad swears that was the moment he knew the Patriots weren’t going to win.

Without further ado…

    Awesome lol does your dad ever change? He looks exactly the same as 4 years ago lol? I was just talking to a buddy of mine about your shrine today. Have to tell him to check it out now.

  2. Are you kidding? After watching that, all he could think was how skinny he looks. He’s on a mission to gain weight now.

    Holy Jesus. Why ever leave the house with a living room like that? I’d rather go there than Fenway and Fenway is awesome.

  4. Our living room took years of hard work and investment. 😀 It’s only Patriots though. My dad keeps all the Red Sox, Celtics & Bruins stuff upstairs.

    you mean that’s only a partial viewing? You’re holding out! I had Kanes Donuts from Saugus this morning. PHENOM.

  6. Wow that shrine is truly awesome!

    Too bad they got your site’s address wrong..

    As far as the SB, well, I have to take some blame. I did not make my victory chili that day. In fact I totally tanked it, snack-wise.. The Football Gods were very spiteful for my poor showing of snackage that fateful day. Dammit.

  7. Doug, Kane’s are ok. My dad eats ’em every morning. Maybe you saw him?

    Ernie, they corrected the mistake after the segment which I think worked to my benefit. Anthony Everett repeated, “Boston brat dot NET.” Oh, and I could rattle off 50 things my dad and I didn’t do for the Super Bowl. I think we were just too confident.

  8. Unfortunately I did not see him – I would have recognized him from the video and if I had seen him I would have gone to great lengths to commend him on the shrine!

  9. That would make his entire week. Trust me. The Shrine is my dad’s pride and joy.

  10. It would make my week to commend him on his shrine! Now, *that* would make my day!

  11. If that was my shrine – it would be my pride and joy as well!

  12. Girl!
    Youz famous!

    Just totally AWESOME!!! And yes you go could put most men to shame, remeber I am on your side!

  14. Funny story, although the segment is about me, my dad has been recognized four times. Me, zero.
