Halloween cheerleaders

Patriots cheerleaders

As promised last week, here are the cheerleader photos from the Rams and Pats game last October. (I added them to the game set and the larger cheerleader set as well.)

Oh… that’s right, no one seemed to want to look at those photos much. I guess you really are ready for baseball, but seriously, there’s a few good ones there, no? I’m sure all the bro’s think there are some here as well. Pigs.

Hahaha… well, I am doing my best to catch up. I will get the baseball ones up for Opening Day that night. Promise! But, I likely won’t get thru my backlog by then, so you’ll have to suffer thru some Fall... Continue reading »

Ram the cassel gate

Vrabel and Bruschi

I know, I know… it seems stupid to put up photos from a football game with Opening Day just around the corner, but it has been established numerous times that I am running behind on posting to Flickr. So, you get football now and I hope to be caught up by the time baseball starts. That means photos from Opening Day before the Pats open against the Bills in September. Actually, hopefully that means I can get those posted the night of Opening Day. Anyone want to start a pool?

Back to the task at hand, these photos are from the Rams game on October 26, 2008. Matt Cassel getting more comfortable in the line-up, etc. Disappointed that all we saw of Steven Jackson was him walking off the field at halftime wearing sweats since he was injured at the time....

Remember your first

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a Sox and Blue Jays game with Ed, his brother-in-law Eric and his son Makenna. They live in Pennsylvania and were out this way for Jason‘s East Coast wedding reception, a “Shindig,” and Jason’s parents made many tickets available to people that made the trip. (Ed has written up a nice account of the time and posted it and my comments are over there so I’ll skip that part here.)

Kenna is a big Sox fan — he can recognize Jeff Bailey, can you? — and this was his first game at Fenway Park, so a pretty big deal. I tried to get them tickets at the end of last year and again earlier this summer, but they both didn’t work out for scheduling reasons, so I was psyched that he was finally going to get to a game. There’s something about that first time. I think it really can be magical and it is certainly... Continue reading »

Carl on sports

Ever wanted to talk sports with Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger Force? Well… you can’t. But some dudes at The Sporting News can and they have clips on their blog. I am going to go check out his Week 2 NFL picks right now…

Nineteen and oh-no…

I wanted to post something yesterday, but didn’t get around to it. Not because I was too mad or anything, just too busy. So busy that I watched CSI: Miami last night, without the sound up… which was a good thing. I hate that show.

Anyway, I just read the following from Coach Belichick in an article on

“It’s time to move on,” Belichick said. “I’m not going to sit here and dwell on anything, good or bad, that happened in the past. It is what it is. We played our last game of the ’07 season.”

I love this guy. So nonchalant, right? Yeah, but he’s got to be raging inside. If he were able, you’d think he’d have his secondary out on the practice field yesterday, in full pads and working on their mistakes, but alas, that will have to wait until the first mini-camp I guess. They were awful for the entire p... Continue reading »

No bowling

In case you were wondering about my Super Bowl status, you can wonder no more. No super bowling for me. I figured you didn’t figure it out from the silence, so I’d tell you. Heck, that’s better than what Jay and I got, but I’m not complaining. We never heard back from his friend with the tix and that leaves us to both assume it didn’t happen. Either that, or he ain’t tellin and is instead sellin dem tix on the craigslist or ebays.

Anyway, just as well cuz now I won’t miss the commercials… wait… they sucked last year, right? Actually, hasn’t that been a trend? Oh wait… I didn’t even watch it last year… I think. Yeah, I don’t think I watched much anyway… can’t watch Peyton. Let me see if I posted about it…

Yep… a little bit. I posted a comment as a post. What what what? Just go read it if you are curious. I may have said if I watched it or not on a comment at the... Continue reading »


I posted some photos [slideshow] from Saturday’s playoff win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. I took it easy on you and only posted 33, or the just over 400 frames I fired off. That’s a ~55 percent drop off from my last set, so you should have no problem zipping thru them. Right?

Anyway, seventeen and Oh baby! and… yes… I went to the game… I know people.

Not really… but, it is funny how many people wonder just that when you tells them you went to the game.

Well, guess what… I am going again this week and… knock on a lot of wood — how about an everwood tree — and wish me good luck… the Super Bowl. Of course, our source has to win the ticket lottery and oh… the Pats need to get past the Bolts too. He’s been 0-3 so far, so maybe we’ll luck out... Continue reading »


It is only fitting that I finally write this post the week of the expected decimation of the New York J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets! Jets! Oh yeah… you know that’s going to happen (short of Tom Brady getting hit by the short bus).

So, the name of this post is Lensgate and I’m guessing you might wonder why. (Hey Ed, at least I procrastinated so long it is now “topical” again.) It does have something to do with the first Pat’s game against the Jets, but that was Videogate or Spygate or whatevergate. I actually hate that we name every conspiracy since Watergate — Contragate being the first I can remember — with a “gate” at the end. I just think it is media silliness… which is an oxymoron. Continuing on… naming this with a “gate” on the end of the title lends itself well to the preposterousness that is this story… and I am getting there, believe me.

So, I attended the Pat’s home opener against the San Diego Chargers. Of course, this was the game after the Jets game and everyone was excited... Continue reading »


What a weekend!

(Now, what a week too!)

I started writing this post on Monday night, but I got sidetracked by one of the topics, which I will get to in a minute. Funny thing about the post was everything (five things) revolves around the word shock, hence the title shocking. I find it even funnier that an event happened on Tuesday to add a sixth, so the word of the month is now shocking. Anyway, I’m trimming some of the fat since I have more to add on…

I was going to talk further about the Pat’s spying scandal because some of the other information that came out during the weekend (losing draft pick(s)?!, leak of tape, even more penalties if Belichick doesn’t turn over all data), but there is just too much and I am just too sick of it all. Now, don’t we have the Mangenius being accused of something by the Ravens? Oh, and can we stop referring to every scandal as a “Gate”? It was just Watergate. Let it go already! Anyway, I’ll just leave this one as disappointing on many angles, but particularly because it tarnishes,... Continue reading »

Feeling unpatriotic

Now that I am done feeling patriotic, it is time to express my unpatriotic feelings.

Oh, don’t worry, this is directed towards the New England Patriots. In fact, my patriotic feelings were originally a tangent within this post, but I busted them out on their own, where they belong. Also, I got down this path both because of the news, but also because Jason posted about both the Pats and 9/11 today, so read them.

Even without all this prompting, I already wanted to comment on the Rodney Harrison/HGH thing, but had been delaying it to see how things went this past Sunday. Yesterday we thought they just creamed the J-E-T-S, but today the NFL thinks it was less game plan and... Continue reading »
