Week of 2/5 – 2/12/12 This was a week filled with curious and controversial decisions like Kevin Youkilis popping the question to Tom Brady’s sister, Rob Gronkowski partying like he’s on the Jersey Shore right after losing the Super Bowl, and Tom Brady’s wife publicly blaming the receivers for blowing the big game. What could go […]
Alec Baldwin famously said “Coffee is for closers” in the movie “Glengarry Glen Ross,” and when it came to Super Bowl 46, he couldn’t be more right. The Patriots couldn’t close. I have had a couple days to digest, and I am like many Patriot fans, I’m ready to move on. I wanted to reflect […]
Rob Gronkowski and Matt Light were caught on camera partying shirtless on stage with LMFAO at the Patriots after-party just hours after losing the Super Bowl on Sunday night/early Monday morning. Is there anything wrong with this picture? I have a few different feelings about this…
Kids, if you haven’t learned anything yet, learn this: you can find a silver lining in almost anything. Let’s take Sunday’s excruciating and heartbreaking Super Bowl loss to the Giants, for example. How can anything good come out of that? Behold…
Kickoff between the Giants and Patriots begins Sunday night at 6:30 p.m. EST.
Do you believe in the SI cover curse? Does it apply to team owners? Despite whatever you may believe, Patriots owner Robert Kraft made the cover of Sports Illustrated this week for the first time. What took so long? Photo after the jump…
Super Bowl Media Day was a complete circus as usual on Tuesday. One of the sideshows was a man dubbed “Fake Tom Brady.” At first glance, Fake Tom, also known as Nick Lower of Missouri, resembled the Brady of a couple years back. He has long, flowing brown hair and a thick beard (do you […]
Rapper, Cash Money Records co-founder/co-CEO, and Lil Wayne father figure Birdman (now known as Baby, for some reason, although his real name is Bryan Williams) has offered to bet $5 million on the Patriots to win the Super Bowl. $5 million! While many reports claim he has already made this bet, the phrasing of this […]
Finally the New England Patriots are back where they belong; in a championship game. After beating the lucky-to-be-there Broncos in the divisional round, The Pats are back in the AFC Championship game. They’ll be hosting the Baltimore Ravens in a playoff game for the first time since Baltimore ousted the Patriots in the wild card […]
In the last 10 years the New England Patriots have developed into a perennial contender. It is expected that they make the playoffs, and the only way a season can be deemed a success is with a super bowl title. By this high standard, the last two years have been great disappointments, with the Patriots […]
With a 24-19 loss in the AFC Championship Game, the Jets did not qualify for the Super Bowl, and they have not been to the big game since 1969 (when they won Super Bowl III with Joe Namath under center). In his interview with CBS after the game, Rex Ryan looked as if he had […]
For years, EA’s Madden football video game series has been ruining careers of many prolific NFL players. SoB’s Pete chronicled the pitfalls for every Madden cover athlete from 1999 (Garrison Hearst) to 2008 (Brett Favre), and added extra analysis for 2009’s cover boys (Larry Fitzgerald and Troy Polamalu). We all know the Madden Curse affects […]
What in the world is going on in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania? The Pittsburgh Steelers, a team that’s been under the microscope for all of the wrong reasons this offseason, made more news on Monday, trading Super Bowl-MVP wide receiver Santonio Holmes to the New York Jets for a fifth-round draft pick. Yes, you read that correctly. […]
I’m not what some would call a very spiritual person. I don’t go to church. I don’t believe in ghost, psychics, or the afterlife. I think of all forms of religion as either a type of copping mechanism or a social group that makes it easier to meet a like-minded person to have sex with, […]
