Stuff like this just drives me crazy. In what universe are Super Bowl championships and MVP awards equivalent? Next, we'll see Tom Brady versus the entire Manning family.
The German translator's English is not so good, but Patriots fans will cut him some slack. It is rare to be able to look inside Chancellor Goodell's NFL Bunker and see what really happens there after an exciting weekend of NFL football.
The NFL kicks off another season tonight!
I went to Summer camp this morning, in Foxborough MA, with about 10,000 other New England Patriots fan(atic)s.
It was very hot, and free, and absolutely wonderful to see football back for another season.
And Tom Brady was already in his teammates' faces to push harder. He even chewed out a ball boy for getting in his way.
A WBZ-TV reporter interviewed me on camera about my expectations for the team during TB12's four-game regular season suspension.
"3-1" I replied. No hesitation.
The league is conducting extensive testing of helmets prior to the start of the 2016-17 season.
After the Primary debates ceased to be fun anymore and I suspended my political campaign, I've been getting more and more excited about the upcoming NFL season.
Outside of rooting for my fellow Penn State alum Christian Hackenberg to get drafted by a decent team tonight, I care as much about the NFL Draft as I do about fantasy football. Which is zero.
With the almost-certainty of Jimmy Garoppolo playing quarterback for the New England Patriots while Tom Brady serves his four game regular season suspension, I can't wait for the new season to start.
NFL training camps will open in about ninety days, just after the Republican convention in Cleveland. TB12 will only have played his first couple of regular season games and we will have a good idea of whether or not this will be the "Fuck You" season that Patriots fans had hoped for last year, one that ends with another Super Bowl victory.
And not long after Brady returns from his suspension, we will finally know whether the next President of the United States will be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
As it was for me during the late 1960s, I am once again blessed to live in interesting times.
The league must be pissed that he didn't mention Peyton Manning, though.
Prop bets make up almost a third of the $4 billion that will be wagered on tomorrow's Super Bowl. And this doesn't even include Draft Kings and Fan Duel fantasy wagering.
The squares you play at tomorrow's Super Bowl party aren't even a blip on the screen.
Let The Washington Post explain:
I generally ignore the two-week promotional buildup to the Super Bowl when the Patriots aren't involved, in the same way I avoid pre-game shows for any sport. But I did happen to catch an interview earlier this week with Sean McManus, Chairman of CBS Sports (the network that's carrying the game). He was asked what his biggest concern was about the live broadcast, the one thing that kept him awake at night. A power failure? A terrorist attack?
"A wardrobe malfunction."
According the article below, the Carolina Panthers' nutritionist seems to have done a fine job all season in preparing the team for this Sunday's big game, but I don't think you want to aspire to the upper caloric range in planning out the food/beverage/snack offerings for your Super Bowl 50 party:
Instead of the usual NFL pre-game stooges, with all of their blowhard "blah blah blah" , here's a lead-in schedule for your Super Bowl party that your guests will really enjoy:
That's just what we do.
I don't know what this means.
Was the game played in Uzbekistan?
Dear God, please tell me that they're not really going to wear these...
