Paul Spicer's sledgehammer
Re: Paul Spicer's sledgehammer
He used some tape, wood and elbow grease and -- presto! -- there it was. A sledgehammer. A freaking sledgehammer.
The sledgehammer became a week-long symbol for the Jaguars leading up to their game against New England. The Jaguars were going to pound some damn heads.
Then came the best part of the story: Spicer brought his spanking-new sledgehammer onto the team charter flight here. There have been NFL players who brought guns and mistresses on team flights, but never a sledgehammer. How exactly do you pack a sledgehammer, anyway? Is that a carry-on?
In the minutes prior to the divisional game, which would end with New England going to 17-0, the entire Jaguars team made a motion like they were pounding a sledgehammer into the ground of Gillette Stadium. They were really buying into this.
The Jaguars would indeed knock the Patriots for a loop, seeing eye to eye with the best team in football, matching punch for punch, sledge for sledge, hammer for hammer (sorry), but in the end it was:
Patriots 1, Sledgehammer 0
That was good writing. Patriots 1, Sledge 0. That says it all.
