hey kids-
well, the patriots lost again, and while i’m not too happy about it, i’m not too upset about it, either. seeing as how the baltimore ragens literally tried to kill our patriots, i’m just glad everyone made it back home in one piece. plus, i’m pretty sure we’ll getting that winning thing sorted out sooner or later.
i thought our fearless quarterback looked pretty good sunday and moved the ball effectively – and i was glad to a tighter offensive line, especially with all those thuggy ravens running around. still, the boys definitely look like they’re playing with a super bowl hangover, and it’s getting old. alright tommy. time to stop sitting around on your butt and start playing some football.

in other news, you’ll never guess what’s happened! i’m very happy to report that as of sunday night, i heart we. mom says that’s all he gets for now, but i think it’s exciting progress.

heart him or not, wes is totally getting the tommy of the week. while his 142 yards may not have been enough to clinch the win, they were enough to remind all of us what an invaluable asset wes can be. more catching, less kvetching, wes! you’ll have that contract – and my affection back – in no time.

we play buffalo tomorrow, and while they certainly haven’t looked as sharp as they did last year, we can never discount a division rival. if we win, i’ll make the original ww buy shots while i’m in new york, so cheer extra hard for our patriots...and my drunkenness!
have a great night, and go pats!

hey kids-
i’m sure you’ve heard by now that the patriots lost. it was a tedious, grueling game that seemed to go on forever and had very few highlights – not unlike the past week.
our fearless quarterback looked as frustrated as i felt on sunday – but even his best efforts couldn’t get our team in sync. all credit to the cardinals defense who sacked tommy four times and blocked a punt – but it was one of those fluky games where you just knew from the early tipped-pass-turned-interception that things were not going to go our way. well, you can’t win em all, tommy. seriously – it makes everybody else really mad when you do.

one week in to his very own (shared) feature, aaron hernandez twisted his ankle and is out for a month. the bad news is that supersucks because aaron hernandez is awesome. the good news is wes has already started playing more to pick up the slack, which gives him more opportunities to restake his claim on my affection and get the i heart wes welker back in the header. in the meantime, here’s poor aaron giving us a last look at his tattoos for a while. is anyone else getting supersick of these patriots writhing-in-pain pictures?

know what else made me supersick this week? the play calling in the last two minutes of this game. i know, i know – blah blah blah holding call, blah blah blah replacement refs. but after the patriots’ final touchdown was reversed, they went uncharacteristically conservative, spiking the ball twice (thrice?) instead of making any effort to get stephen gostkowski a little closer to the uprights. as it went, stephen missed that final field goal, and our pats lost a game they well-deserved to lose. nevertheless, the tommy of the week goes to stephen gostkowski. he missed the last one- but he nailed the first four (including two 50+ -yarders), which is the only thing that even kept us in this game. if anyone else on our team had converted on 80% of their plays, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. thanks for the leg, stephen.  maybe next time, the boys’ll have your back.

we play the ravens tomorrow night, and after that title game last year, they’ll be out for blood. of course i always hope we win, but let’s all practice our happy patriots thoughts that all our boys make it out of the murder capital of america alive. we’re already down an aaron! 
have a great night- and go pats.

hey kids-

happy new year! welcome back to a brand new season of football – and a brand new tommy of the week to go right along with it.  ready? oh yeah. let’s do it!

i know i’m not the only one who was happy to see our fearless quarterback back in fighting form on sunday, and fight he did, with a little blood to show for it! tommy put up a respectable 236 yards and two touchdowns against the titans, and while there’s plenty i could say about it, i’m just so damned happy to see him. i’m sure you were, too, so let’s just look at him. yeahhhhhh. that’s the stuff.

if you recall, i wasn’t hearting wes welker so much at the end of last season... and then he spent the summer mouthing off about his contract as if he didn’t drop any super bowl passes and otherwise behaving in a generally douchey fashion. so, while i reserve the right to change my mind (and almost did dreamy sigh the single time he was on tv sunday), i no longer heart wes welker. luckily, we have plenty of eye candy on our team, and our tight end tandem is ready to deliver a hell of a lot more than dreamy sighs. and now, for your viewing pleasure, i happily present the brand new t&a – a weekly celebrations of tight end tats and abs. here’s your first glimpse of the boys in their brand new feature, posing as if they knew i’d need a photo just like this one. thanks guys – looking forward to seeing a lot (eh-hem) more of both of you!

there were lots of reasons to get excited about the patriots sunday- from a trio of promising rookies reinvigorating our defense to a looked-over-the-wrong-shoulder miss by lloyd that proves he already knows the offense better than ochocinco ever did. still, the season’s first tommy of the week goes to stevan ridley. i was very sad to say goodbye to benjarvusgreenellis both because i loved him and because i wasn’t sure ridley could carry the load all on his own. yesterday, he took his chance to shine and ran with it – literally – racking up a career high 125 yards and proving me (quite happily) wrong. congrats stevan! one down, 15 to go, kiddo! 

we play arizona on sunday, and did i mention i’m so freaking happy there’s football? you know i’m even happier when we win, so practice your happy patriots thought and have a great week. 

go pats! hurray football! GO PATRIOTS!!!!!
