patriots_whitebg_70x70New England Patriots

CURRENT ODDS: The Patriots are favored by 2-1/2 points, with an Over-Under of 56.5

The Patriots have not scored a touchdown in the first quarter in 8 previous Super Bowl appearances! New England has only scored 3 first-quarter points in the 8 previous Super Bowl games! They have been shut out in the first-quarter every Super Bowl except for last year against the Philadelphia Eagles, when they kicked a field goal.

C.J. Anderson, the Rams star Runningback, has an old tendency to fumble under pressure. Jared Goff is the youngest Quarterback to play in the big game. Will “Super Bowl Nerves” be a major factor in the Rams’ game play?

NOTE: This game is billed as a rematch of Super Bowl XXXVI, played in 2002.
First-year quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots upset the St. Louis Rams quarterbacked by Kurt Warner 20-17 at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Colin Kaepernick Takes A Knee!

1) Take A Knee protest = Cops please stop killing unarmed African Americans,
2) Racist NFL owners won’t hire Colin Kaepernick as QB for starting the protest,
3) Racist propaganda targeting Colin Kaepernick hits the internet,
4) Nike hires Colin Kaepernick and angry racists burn Nike merchandise
Trump condemned Colin Kaepernick and other players joining the protest, incorrectly claiming they are protesting the national anthem and the American flag…
the discussion is over. The persecution is RACIST. The belittling of an African-American sports figure for political gain based in hatred is what this is about. Dividing the country is what this is about. Hate for a person of color is what this is about. That’s all.
FU LYIN’ DONNY!

“THE FIX IS IN!” Rams-Saints Pass Interference “No-Call”
“whenever officiating is part of any kind of discussion post-game, it’s never a good outcome for us.” ~ NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (10 days after the game)

Rams – Saints Pass Interference “No-Call” on January 20, 2019

The NFL’s Senior VP of Officiating Al Riveron spoke to New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton after the game and said that pass interference should have been called against Rams’ defenseman Nickell Robey-Coleman for the early hit on Saints’ receiver Tommylee Lewis. Robey-Coleman was fined for an illegal hit, but Commissioner Roger Goodell did not overturn the result of the game or order all or part of the game to be replayed.

“Listen, we understand the frustration of the fans. I’ve talked to coach Payton. The team, the players, we understand the frustration they feel right now, and we certainly want to address that” ~ NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (10 days after the game)

Tom Brady is 41 years old. Jared Goff is 24 years old. If the Patriots win, Brady will become the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl, a record currently held by Peyton Manning (he was 39 in 2016 when the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers).

 

“He became a man the day of the greatest game he ever played. Everything he ever knew about common decency and morality he learned that day in December from Alan “The Horse” Ameche; and today in the Superbowl he would earn his wings. The crowd had assembled; a crowd of America’s elite. Toyata salesmen from all around the country—orientals and even those suspected of being orientals—stacked on the thirty yard line watching him sweat and wipe caked blood from his face. The Gallow brothers—Ernest and Julio—party guys who had skinned a few Mexicans and forced them to carry them on their shoulders down to the pre-game tailgate parties at the colosseum. The Pepsi and Coca Cola bottlers of America—Coke adds life; It’s the real thing—bombarded by missiles; flying flaming matchbook covers. The waterheads from General Motors up in the top seats where they belong; getting the worst of the pollution. All sorts of weird motherf*ckers were at the game.”

Gladys Knight performed the national anthem beautifully at Super Bowl 53. The seven-time Grammy Award winner and Atlanta native is best known for her hits “Midnight Train to Georgia” and “That’s What Friends are For”. There were rumors that she might be joined by The Pips, but that didn’t happen.

2019 Halftime Show: Maroon 5 w/guests Travis Scott and Big Boi (TOTALLY SUCKED!) MORE CONTROVERSY! The Colin Kaepernick Scandal causes big name artists to say NO. Maroon 5 is targeted for saying yes. Just remember, it’s all about the MONEY.

COIN TOSS: Heads or Tails?
The Patriots call “Heads”, the Rev. King flips the coin, and it lands “TAILS”.
The Rams win the coin toss. They choose to defer and kick off to the Patriots.

We made a pot of chili in the morning and had some for breakfast. Then we went to the market and bought our party supplies. We came home and prepped the food and then enjoyed the pre-game telecast and Super Bowl Sunday pre-party food and fun.

 

The game was really boring. The Patriots led 3-0 at halftime. The halftime show was terrible. The commercials were pretty bad, with only a couple of exceptions.
Not much to say about the commentary or pre-show. (F*ck Trump and his soft interview)
CBS’s visual coverage of the game was good. They had lots of cameras, effects, and no technical difficulties to speak of, but again the game was really boring.

The Rams were out-coached and out-played, but managed to stay in the game until the 4th quarter, when the Patriots finally scored a touchdown and then sealed the win with a an interception and field goal. FINAL SCORE: Patriots 13, Rams 3 (B-O-R-I-N-G)

Sad ending for a sad football season, marred by racial and political issues, and too many BAD F*CKING CALLS AND “NO CALLS” by the officials. The recent rule changes have hurt the game and the judgement calls by the referees have raised a lot of questions…..

Would it have been a better game if the Patriots beat the New Orleans Saints?

“Super Sunday. Dawn. My recollections of the last twelve hours are very dim. All that I know for certain is that shortly after I checked in, two third-world drug abusers disguised as hotel employees forced their way into my room; ransacked it, drank all my liquor, did all my drugs, stole my dinner. If the security precautions aren’t beefed up at this hotel; I’m looking for safer accommodations. It’s a sad state of affairs when this reporter has to go heavily armed to breakfast.”

“We also know our officials are human, we also know that they’re officiating a game that moves very quickly and have to make snap decisions under difficult circumstances,” he said. “And they’re not going to get it every time. As I say, they’re human.”
~ NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (10 days after the game)

THE FIX IS IN! (again)
Penalties called against the Rams: 12
Penalties called against the Patriots: 3
TOO MANY “NO CALLS!” Holding much? The Patriots 4th quarter Touchdown drive:
