hey kids-

the patriots beat the broncos. the patriots TOTALLY beat the broncos. HOLY CRAP THE PATRIOTS TOTALLY BEAT THE BRONCOS! in other news, daylight savings time totally turned this into another night game, and my liver and my central nervous system were entirely overstressed by this game. whatever. THE PATRIOTS BEAT THE BRONCOS! soooo worth the anxiety and the hangover.

reading the press about this, i think maybe everyone else was watching a different game than i was. i was still pretty freaking stressed out with eight minutes left in the fourth quarter. i probably would have continued to be stressed out, but thankfully a few shots of jamison intervened on my behalf. what i remember up to that point was a holy freaking fearless quarterback and a whole lot of receivers dropping a whole lot of touchdowns. luckily, tommy just kept on throwing them, winding up with four on the night – along with 333 yards. here he is, sharing a private moment with julian edelman in the midst of the madness.

like much of america, i was awed by the patriots team that showed up sunday afternoon – and there are so many contenders for this week’s tommy. i reallllllly want to give it to edelman, who had several great catches and a zig zag punt return that had me screaming so loudly the entire bar stopped to stare. gronk also had an amazing game – not to mention that whole tom brady dude. nevertheless, i’m giving this totw to the collective patriots defense. bill belichik always has a plan...but it’s not often that it’s executed as well as it was on sunday afternoon. the defense kept manning on his toes all day , flummoxing the offense with different configurations that are beyond the scope of my football knowledge. what i do know is that they shut that shit down, and i couldn’t be more proud.. i know all your names, now, boys.

we’re on the bye this sunday, and it’s hard to go from such a high high to a big old nothing – but i am a little grateful to be looking at a hangover free monday. we’ll be back in action the following sunday night against the colts, hopefully with no hitch in our momentum or our alcoholic tolerance. my happy patriots thoughts are irrepressible right now, but start thinking yours soon, and i'll see you in two mondays...or tuesdays as the case will more than likely be. 

have a great week, and go pats!

love dav
