hey kids-
well, there were a few bumps in the road, but our patriots came up winners against the texans in our first playoff game of the season. i know i’m late as usual, so i hope you’ve all been thinking your happy patriots thoughts that it won’t be our last!
our fearless quarterback led sunday’s charge with 344 yards and three touchdown passes, surpassing Joe Montana as he earned his 17th postseason career victory. in all those wins, tommy’s thrown 41 touchdown passes, but he still looks just as excited as if this was the first one as he celebrates with vereen. it never gets old for us, either, tommy!

in other news, it took all season long – but omg i heart wes welker! aaron seems gracious so i don’t think he’ll mind, and rob got hurt AGAIN so i really don’t care what he thinks. wes played like a superstar on sunday, ducking and dashing for 131 yards and reminding me why i started hearting him in the first place. remember this? dreamy sigh.

early in the season, shane vereen got my attention when he came in against the broncos for one play, one yard and one touchdown.  he’s come a long way since then, and he came up big against the texans. in addition to one rushing touchdown, vereen also caught two touchdown passes – including a 33-yard stunner that cemented this week’s tommy. cuz, you know, it’s totally normal that our third-string running back should catch a 33 yard pass. oh yeah – strut your stuff, shane! 

we play baltimore on sunday, kids, and i’m not gonna lie: i’m stressin out. i’ve said before that we often beat them but rarely deserve to do so, and they’re out for blood after our crazy win in last year’s conference title game. Add in all the emotion they’re playing with right now, and our patriots definitely have their work cut out for them. there’s been a lot of debate about jinxes, lucky hats, and outward facing beer labels this week, but the happy patriots thoughts actually DO work – so think yours in full force! i’m going to go bake something.
have a great weekend- and go pats!

love dav

hey kids-
our patriots ended the season on a high note with a win against the dolphins. i didn’t think we played particularly well, although the score would suggest otherwise. after all, we were playing miami. i’m super late and super over this game, so i’ll keep it short and sweet.
our fearless quarterback ended the year with two more touchdown passes and a respectable 284 yards. also respectable was the flying leap he took to celebrate rob gronkowski’s return...or maybe his touchdown reception. either way, tommy sure jumps better than he runs.

tommy wasn’t the only one happy to see rob gronkowski. looks like aaron missed rob’s abs just as much as i did!

it was a pretty well-balanced, if unmemorable game, against the dolphins, and i’m giving the last tommy of the week to tom brady.  here he is looking all leadershipy, competitive, and generally roguishly-charming. yeah- i know you’re not fooled. i was looking at aaron’s arms.

and that’s all she wrote on the regular season, kids. we play houston in just over two hours, and i hope our patriots have done a better job on focusing on the task at hand than i have. i was trying to force myself not to worry about next week even before baltimore upset the broncos. if you haven’t already, think your happy patriots thoughts in full force, and i’ll catch ya back here sooner than later, promise.
go pats!!!!!!!!
