    It never gets old - reflections on Oct 17-20, 2004

    Am so loving watching these games. I went to the ALCS Game 4 with a buddy of mine and was waiting for him outside on Yawkey Way for a few minutes - I had 3 or 4 guys come up and offer me their tickets for free (one guy was about 8 rows directly behind home plate). People wanted no part of...

    2020 Pats: Kraft One-Ups Brady’s Departure

    Phenomenal - something from the heart, not from a PR consultant. Gotta love the Krafts

    2020 TB12: The Decision 2020

    out of left field, here, but I just saw a tweet in another thread from TB about the Kobe chopper crash. This has to be a moment for him to reflect on mortality - i wonder if it could push the needle more in the direction of retirement. From all I've seen of him with at SB celebrations...

    2020 Pats: General/Non-QB Off-Season Discussion

    I bumped into Andrews at a charity event last month and talked with him for a second. Nice, smart guy - when I mentioned how random his condition appeared to be, he just shook his head and said "We thought I had pneumonia." He was still spooked. He's lucky this didn't turn out to be some...

    2020 Pats: General/Non-QB Off-Season Discussion

    No - I watched NBCSN after the game for a bit and all I saw was Vrabel's conference. I switched over to the NFL Network and caugh the last question of BB's presser (asking why they didn't have a punt return set up at the end of the game and B gave the guy the death stare). It's funny - I'm...

    Celebrating What Is

    ...and the SB W-L record of all of those years is...? What's the SB record for Pats' teams with their lowest points allowed over the last 19 years?

    The Nation's Tears: Volume III

    Grumpy Lobster Boat Captain - funny image, that immediately conjured up the image of another lobster boat captain/Boston champion... On a different note, I wonder - has any SOSH'er ever compared BB to Ahab? Probably a treasure trove of images and funny retellin of Moby Dick through the eyes...

    2019 TB12: Everyday Is Like Sunday

    Laugh out loud. I hate it when my daughter looks up at me and says, "What are you laughing at, Daddy?", and I have to say, "Oh, nothing..."

    2019 Playoff Seeding and Home Field Advantage Watch

    Jeez - I hope not - it's just that I'm getting worried about the offense. It's funny - after almost 20 years of watching the Pats at the top of the league in scoring, I just can't get used to enjoying them keep other teams from scoring! Also, watching how bad kickers are, across the league, I...

    2019 Playoff Seeding and Home Field Advantage Watch

    Does losing Nick Folk for at least a week to appendicitis have any impact on this thread?

    2019 Pre-Game Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    I watched the first couple episodes of "Living with Your Self" - Brady bit was funny, but the show really has hooked me. Very wacky, with good writing

    15 Years

    I think the guy is great (well, at least his characters on TV and in movies), but I loved the cameras zooming in on Billy Crystal crying in the stands.

    Celebrating What Is

    Amazing. Isn't that funny, though - I remember being in a friend's house, out at the beach and listening to this game (a Labor Day hurricane was hitting the Cape) but I thought I remembered them beating the Dolphins! Tough getting old...
