Super Bowl LII – New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles

| February 3, 2018

Once again … those of us who enjoy NFL football are forced to watch the New England Patriots play yet again in a Super Bowl. The last time they met the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl was in 2004, the outcome was 24-21 … which is slightly under margin of victory being predicted this […]

When is the 2018 Super Bowl?

| January 21, 2018

This weekend gave us a “nail-biter and a blowout,” as one writer put it. The Super Bowl will be February 4, 2018 and will be “a rematch of a game we saw less than 15 years ago: Eagles vs. Patriots.” I can’t say I’m really looking forward to it as I don’t care for either team. […]

MLS player Michael Parkhurst is a great soccer ambassador

| February 6, 2017

This past weekend while killing a few minutes, I had an enjoyable conversation with a nice young man about 2017 Superbowl LI. After finding out I always lived in Ohio, he introduced himself as Mike and ask how I liked growing up in the mid west, saying that he grew up on the east coast. […]

Patriots outplayed the Falcons to win Superbowl 51

| February 5, 2017

The Atlanta Falcons as a team deserve some credit in playing Superbowl LI impressively for three full quarters, until they didn’t in the 4th quarter.  The New England Patriots basically slept during the first part of the game and came to life in the 4th quarter. In cardiac arrest inducing fashion, New England mounted the most […]

Tom Brady over 400 yards in win against the Ravens on MNF

| December 13, 2016

Once again the England Patriots lead by the 39 year old Tom Brady pull off another win, this time against the top defense of the Baltimore Ravens. Even with injuries, Brady is able to find new targets and amassed 400 yards to win on a Monday Night Football game. The Ravens didn’t give up as […]

Superbowl XLIX Patriots vs Seahawks — still tied?

| February 1, 2015

(Edited image above to reflect final score) Ok, so that was a bit of a tease since it’s still a few hours before the 6:30 PM kickoff as we wait for what is debatably the biggest sporting event of the year, the Superbowl (thinking World Cup). Anyway the marketeers have been out in force prepping […]

NFL Playoffs … and then there were two

| January 19, 2015

Football was on call for Sunday afternoon and evening with the final two NFL playoff games. First was perhaps the most exciting game I’ve watched in a long time seeing the conservative play-calling of the Green Bay Packers dominate the first 3 quarters of football. Then last years Superbowl champs lead by Russell Wilson came […]

Terrific win by the NY Giants in Superbowl 46

| February 5, 2012

Although I’m not claiming to be a New York Giants fan, I’m definitely not a New England Patriots fan … so enjoyed the 21 to 17 win by the Giants. A great game for the NFL fans and one of the better Superbowl I can remember. Congrats to all for a great game right down […]
