hey kids-
twas two weeks before christmas, and my big winter wish
was for tommy to triumph and gut those damned fish.
tensions were high as he entered gillette- 
but he made it a game that we soon won’t forget!
and i in my pats hat at my nondouchey bar
sipped a bacon martini – yeah, i know it’s bizarre.
the pats started to drive! a touchdown was expected!
and then son of bitch- the pass was deflected!
the offense was sleeping right through the first half,
but vince and the boys gave us reasons to laugh.
and then tommy’s two touchdowns and 287 yards
made it certain that vict’ry was there in the cards.

when the offense awakened as we hit quarter three,
what a sight to behold- it was something to see!
blount, shane and gronk all got in on the fun,
but when push came to shove, defense made sure we won. 
playing 60 full minutes, making stops and more stops,
they had sacks, interceptions, and forced plenty of drops.
but which guy should get it – the weekly award?
there were so many big plays – and the D even scored!
so with 10 solid tackles and his pick and panache 
patrick chung’s great big sunday trumps tommy’s big dash.
our long lost friend patrick picked a great time to peak -
and by now you all know- he gets the tommy of the week!

now i never count chickens, or jinx us with bets,
but i’m feeling okay about pats versus jets.
still, we’re playing in jersey, and i wanna win lots,
so come on! get to work thinking patriots thoughts!
i’ll catch you next weekend with all that games’ stats-
so have a great week- and go go go PATS!

hey kids-
the patriots beat the chargers IN SAN DIEGO! thank god. this one felt a little like deja vu - in that we won, i was happy, and i drank too much. i really  have to stop drinking wine during night games.
in a little more deja vu, tommy threw two touchdowns and one interception – which i hope does not become a trend. tommy threw for 317 yards, which is kind of surprising since it felt like our offense wasn’t clicking quite as well as it should be. whatever. we won, and i was as happy as tommy was. in fact, i looked like this pretty much the whole walk home. i don’t know how i didn’t get beaten up. 

also deja vu-ish, i really really really wanted to give the totw to julian edelman – except this week, i totally can! julian rocked it out with 141 yards, including a 69-yard touchdown run that involved a lot of tackle-breaking by him and a lot of leaping and yelling by me. here he is, running and laughing at the chargers trying to catch him. silly chargers. you’ll never catch Edel-Man!

we end the season going head to head with each of our division rivals, starting with miami at gillette this sunday. thankfully, all three games are early, so you’ll hopefully get your totws a little sooner and i'll be a little soberer(er). the dolphins have been playing well and pose a definite threat, so think your happy patriots thoughts, and hopefully we’ll all be having deja vu all over again next week.
have a great week and go pats!

hey kids-
the patriots are in san diego! yeah, yeah, we lost to green bay, blah blah blah, but why would i tell you about that when i can tell the patriots are IN SAN DIEGO!!!! WOOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!
alas, the cheeseheads did prevail, and while i wasn’t super happy or anything, i wasn’t too upset either. neither team player particularly well or seemed particularly dominant, and one more loss was probably a good thing before the playoffs. our fearless quarterback went 22 for 35 with 245 yards and two touchdown passes, and i didn’t think he looked bad...but he didn’t look as good as he does IN SAN DIEGO!!!!
i decided in the middle of this game that i was giving the totw to chris jones, because they kept talking about him and talking about him and talking about him. jones hit rodgers twice and sacked him once, so he wins this week’s tommy. if you think he doesn’t deserve it, don’t worry – he’s getting totally ripped off. i’m not showing you a chris jones picture this week – although i’m sure he’s here in this group of PATRIOTS IN SAN DIEGO!!!!!
so, did i mention the patriots play san diego on sunday night? in fact, they’re already here, IN SAN DIEGO!!! they must be super pissed that there one week in san diego is the one week of measureable rain we’ve had in the last 13 months. on the plus side, it probably feels a little more like home. we need to win the rest of our games from here on out to keep our playoff advantage, so think your happy patriots thoughts extra hard this week. i’m gonna go see if i can track down gronk in the gaslamp...to send him back to practice, of course.
have a great week, and go patriots IN SAN DIEGO!
