By on October 21, 2016 at 6:36pm

1. Steelers:

* No Ben

* Gotta be leading the NFL in pot smokers over the last ten years

* Steelers have 24 inductees in Hall of Fame

* Patriots have two hall of famers – Hannah and Tippett (if you give them credit for Curtis Martin or Michael Haynes – 4)

* Great receiving core – Brown, Jesse James, Sammie Coates

* Watch out for Antonio Brown on punt returns – averaging 14.6

* Very Pittsburgh memory was the AFC championship win with Troy Brown scoring on punt return

2. Price vs Lester in postseason:

Lester – 8-6 / 2.50 ERA Continue reading Connelly Top Ten: Lester, 2nd Basemen, Michelle’s Mom »

1. Patriots vs. Bengals:


· Rumors are the Foxy Lady had to triple their security Saturday night with the Bengals in town

· Should have got Blount out of that game – the Bengal punks were bringing out the worst in him – lucky he didn’t do something silly

· Pacman went for Gronk’s legs – don’t blame him for getting mad – once you wound Gronk up though no one could shut him up

· People love doing the Safety sign (admit it did you do it at home)

· Two QB’s were a combined 25-32 in first half

· How long before the ESPN analysts start complaining about Pats running up (by the way that score put the game over for total points)

· I like the sign Patriots put up on their digital board on a big play – “Get Loud – Do Your Job”

· As soon as CBS said 78-0 record at Gillette when leading at halftime – I got nervous Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: Bengals in Town – Hide the Woman and Children and Lock the Doors »

1. Patriots vs. Bengals:

  • Bengals could get knocked out this week and go 2-4
  • They are 3-8 last 11 games – including pre season
  • Look out for head hunting Burfict
  • Brady’s first game back in Foxboro – Standing O upcoming
  • Brandon Lafell has more TD than Gronk – 2 to 0
  • AJ Green – Logan Ryan with help over the top
  • Bengals have one of those teams that can hurt a QB
  • Am I going to have to watch twinkle toes Blount in short yardage
  • Kicker Mike Nugent 0-2 passed 50 yards

1. Red Sox:

* Is the season a success if you with the East and make the playoffs?

* Not a good season for Dombrowski – Pomerantz, Kimbrel and Price

2. John Farrell:

  • Do you really take out Benintendi over Jackie Bradley in a desperate elimination game
  • I’m still not sure if I pinch run for Ortiz – if that game one more at bat Hernandez would have come up in the clean up positon for the Sox
  • I don’t know if I pinch hit for Holt who had been hitting a little bit in the series
  • I’m just not sold on him – I would move on even though he won the East

1. Patriots vs Browns:


  • Cherish every game
  • Brady had lost his last two games in Ohio (lost to Ohio State also)
  • Everytime he gets booed on the field – legal team should get fired up for civil suit
  • How cool was the Brady chant all game?
  • Gotta love a score on the first drive
  • Goofy but satisfying first down call on his run in front of a Cleveland coach – ala John Wensink versus North Stars – if you’re a Brown you can’t allow that


  • After five games – the Patriots have won games with three different QB’s
  • Cleveland loses two quarterbacks – so I ask again would you trade Jimmy G. right now for two first round picks
  • Jimmy G career completion percentage 68.9% / Brady 63.6%
  • Oh – Oh Cy Jones alert – two fumbles last week, got burnt for TD today and then ejected from the game (CBS really didn’t have a camera that could pick up the receiver diving at his knees after the play?)
  • Charlie Whitehurst will be playing the lead tonight in Jesus Christ Superstar
  • I’m thinking Whitehurst carries a European carry-all (a man purse)

David Ortiz IS October

October 6, 2016 at 4:30pm in Boston, Featured, MLB, Top Story
David Ortiz IS October

We’re back, baby! Tonight, Rick Porcello and his 22 wins will take on Trevor Bauer and the Indians at Progressive field in Cleveland. The Indians, led by former Red Sox manager and fan-favorite Terry Francona, will look to capture their first playoff victory since 2007. Francona, who led the Red Sox to two World Series titles (including the team’s first in 86 years) was “let go” after the Red Sox epic collapse down the stretch of the 2011 season. While the bad blood between Francona and the Red Sox organization seems to have dissipated tremendously since the breakup, I think it’s safe to say that Francona would love nothing more than to stick it to Red Sox brass, particularly John Henry.

That’s where David Ortiz comes in. The man who has carried this team and this city on his back since that magical run back in 2004 will look to fire up the magic one last time in his final postseason appearance. A World Series title would strengthen David’s case as one of, if not the greatest playoff performer of all-time. Additionally, it would cement his legacy as one of the three greatest Red Sox players to ever live.

David Ortiz IS October. October rolls around and David Ortiz’s eye lasers zero in on baseballs and send them to the moon. No pitcher is too clutch. No moment is too big. It’s time to ride Big Papi to the promise land one final time. God, am I going to miss this guy.

No beisbol is safe, no beisbol is safe.

Brady is back!

October 3, 2016 at 12:51pm in Boston, Patriots, Top Story

Tom Brady is officially free.  After Serving his four game suspension, Brady is set to start OctBradyober 9th against the Cleveland Browns.  The fans are excited, the players are excited, and I’m sure Tom himself is thrilled to be back on that field with his teammates.  During Brady’s absence, the Patriots posted a 3-1 record with back up quarterbacks Jimmy Garrappolo and Jacoby Brissett.  If you told me at the beginning of the season that Garrappolo would get hurt and the Patriots would still be 3-1, I wouldn’t believe you.  People were definitely a little nervous about how they would play without Brady but as a team they exceeded expectations.  Yes, it would have been great if they beat Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills yesterday and went 4-0 but unfortunately Garrappolo wasn’t healthy enough to play and Brissett looked a little banged up to.  Honestly the whole team didn’t look ready to play yesterday which is unusual to see from the Patriots.  Don’t get too happy though Rex, Brady and the Patriots will be back looking for Revenge on October 30th.

In my mind I think Garrappolo not starting yesterday is a little bit of a disappointment.  Look I’m not a doctor, nor have I had that injury before but I feel like if you want to become an elite Quarterback in the NFL you have to try and play through that injury.  There were some reports that the Patriots were trying to push him to play the Thursday night game against the Texans, which I thought was unrealistic because that was only four days after suffering that injury.  After rehabbing for two weeks though, I thought he was going to play.  He was practicing throughout the week and throwing the ball pretty well.  Playing through injuries show toughness in a Quarterback and it’s usually the elites one that do it.  For example, Brady has played with that injury, Russell Wilson played through an injury this week, and Big Ben always it’s a little knocked up but most of the time he’s out there playing.  Again, I don’t know how bad the injury was but it would’ve been good to see potentially your future Quarterback showing some toughness.  This was also his last chance to really show the league what he can do.  Now unless Brady gets injured, which would absolutely be devastating, who knows when Jimmy will get his next shot to prove to the league how good he is.

It’s only Monday, but I’m sure me and thousands of Patriots fans already can’t wait for next Sunday.  Bradys back, Ninkovich is back, and hopefully the real Gronk is back.  Good luck Cleveland, your going to need it.
