hey kids-

well, maybe it wasn't the mustache. tom brady did not shave, but our patriots are going to the super bowl anyway. given the way in which they got there, i may grow a mustache myself. 

as expected (by me), our fearless quarterback rebounded from last week's subpar performance with one for the records - literally. tommy went 32 of 42 for three touchdowns and 384 yards, which was the most in patriots playoff history. based on quarterback rating, this was his third best playoff performance of his career. for anyone wondering about the ridiculously large coat, the explanation is simple: he and that mustache are just getting warmed up. 

after carrying tommy last week, this week our team hopped up onto his shoulders to enjoy the ride. our "untested" defense added two more turnovers to the stat sheet and had no trouble removing the stingers from the killer bs, holding pittsburgh to 17 points - including one impressive goal line stand i did *not* see coming. meanwhile, our detested offense played with enough venom for both teams, and after all that talk about those bs, it was the flea that wound up stealing this show. tommy's handoff to dion turned into a never-gets-old trick that landed in the endzone-bound arms of chris hogan. it was just one of many great catches that added up to a record-breaking 180 yards receiving for hogan - and almost earned him this week's tommy. sorry chris, but you're not the only one who broke a record last night - and the tommy of the week is going to its namesake. nice to see the leadership, competitiveness and general roguish charm is still going strong, tommy!

we play atlanta in super bowl 51 in two weeks, kids, but i'll be back next sunday with the tommy of the super bye. get started on your happy patriots thoughts - we definitely need a double dose heading into houston!

have a great week, and go TO THE SUPER BOWL pats!

love dav
