13 years, five Super Bowls, three Rings, a million memories…


This morning, the New England Patriots will host an “important announcement.” And, since Al Michaels can’t keep a secret, the world already knows that this occasion will be Tedy Bruschi announcing his retirement.

I know it’s a fact in the NFL – the players you love WILL retire at some point (unless they are named “Brett Favre,” in which case they retire, cry at a press conference, come back, retire, come back, ad nauseum). But that knowledge does not make it easier when one of our beloved hangs up his cleats.

As Patriots fans, we were truly blessed to have a player like Bruschi on our team for his entire career. And what a career it was. I have so many wonderful Bruschi memories, it’s hard to count. Playing with his kids on the field, his snow “fireworks,” stepping out onto the field at Fenway Park mere months after having a stroke…

Tedy, we’re going to miss you like crazy!

Still sick

I have the cold that just will not die! I think it’s been more than ten years since I’ve had a cold that has kicked my ass like this. And it won’t go away, no matter how much OJ I drink, hours I sleep, NyQuil I chug… I’m still hacking up a lung and blowing my nose. Damn the person who spread these germs to me! Whoever you are! *waves fist*

On the bright side, football season is quickly approaching, as evidenced by my fantasy football league holding its draft today. And when I tell you I hate my team, I really hate my team. Both Tom Brady and Wes Welker were swept up right from under me! I ended up drafting *gasp* Phillip Rivers for my QB. At least if he sucks, thus making my team suck, I won’t care much. Worst case scenario, I drafted Baltimore’s Joe Flacco as my back-up.

I was able to draft Brandon Jacobs for running back (yay!) and at tight end I drafted Visanthe Shiancoe, who you might remember as the poor guy who was frontally nude on national television last season:


Brady’s back!


Tom Brady, oh how I’ve missed you.

It’s almost football season

In the few minutes I have before the start of “True Blood” (which is sooooooooo gooooooood, by the way), I’m taking in the sights and sounds of the annual NFL preseason kickoff… the Hall of Fame Game. Al Michaels’ voice sends my brain into happy thoughts of football season and cold weather. Yes, I said cold weather. Happy thoughts.

Anyway, last weekend we made our annual pilgrimage to Patriots Training Camp. As always, it was worth the wet ass and farmer’s tan. And I was, for the third year in a row, able to photographically capture Tom Brady’s run through the autographing gauntlet:

Tom Brady, circa 2007

Tom Brady, circa 2008

and finally…

Tom Brady, circa last Saturday.

Oh, I can’t wait for the season!

Dear Brett Favre

Dear Brett Favre,

Thank you for finally retiring. Now please go as far away as possible.
