    In interview, Maroney was asked about being excited about playing in the superbowl, our wise running back said " Ya, I have to keep it under control, I don't want to blow my wad early "

    Oh gosh... that was bad! LOL.
    I think he was just trying to use a figure of speech, and ended up saying... that.

    It's alright. He's just young and excitable.
    It's understandable. He hasn't experienced the Pats Super Bowl tradition yet.

    He'll get a taste this year, and I think he'll like it.
    Once Maroney gets hit a few times, he'll settle down and hopefully have a nice game.

    I think we're going to need him to perform well.
    A balanced offense is a lot harder to stop than a one dimensional one.

    LOL. I think there will be a lot of references during practice.
    He'll definitely get razzed for that.
    It's all good though.
    I think he has a sense of humor, and maybe he'll internalize it as some kind of motivation for the Super Bowl.

    I had a whole wad of cash, but I blew it all in one place.
    I have to make sure I don't do the same come Super Sunday.

    English teachers rock!

    Pretty funny. Not too bad though, he could have said load and it'd have been even worse, even though what he's saying is understood as the same thing. I don't associate 'wad' with anything perverse.

    Haha I just watched the last 5 seconds, all the press started laughing then Laurence must've realized what he said and started smiling widely. He seems like such a fun, good hearted young guy.

    We had a trainer at work who would constantly say,
    "Let the kid shoot his wad" (meaning let them get their anger/tantrum over with)
    and I always giggled.

    You spelled 'oops' wrong by the way.
    I love finding the errors of those pointing out errors.

    yes because during the game he will be buying tons of refreshments and programs and spending tons of money.

    That's definitely what he meant. hahah nice

    But after reading this thread title, i was expecting far worse.

    The Chargers definitely blew their wad in the playoffs 2 years in a row. Come to think of it, we blew our wad in the 1st half vs the Colts last year. Belichick is more cautious now in the 1st half ... he saves the defenses wad for the 2nd half. Brady saves his wad for after the game, as well as a few others also. Speaking of wad ... Mercury Morris is blowing his wad every day now, nervous that after next Sunday he will no longer have a wad to blow.

    it's a metaphor. he was saying he doesn't want to give everything he's got early and not be a factor in the end. again, it's a common saying. i'm not sure why everyone thinks it's such a mistake.

    Izzo was on EEI this morning and they were talking about the Seymour\Hardwick incident. So they ask him about stuff that's happened at the bottom of the pile and Izzo says "this is what you do Google Ike Reese grabbing guys nuts."

    I almost drove off the road laughing.

    During a night of drinking 2 buddies and me made a pact that the next time we had sex we had to yell "I think I'm gonna blow my eff wad".

    The next week all three of us had had sex and got as far as "I think" and started laughing so hard we could not keep going. One girl was issed because she thought my buddy was laughing at her for queffing.

    sorry this is OT but I had to share.

    I heard Boomer Easison say they same thing in his interview of WEEI. I'm thinking this is kind of like the use of the word "sucks." It used to be inapporiate in polite conversation but now you hear it everywhere. Also the term "balls" as in, "has he got the balls to do that?"

    Things change.

    What changed isn't that it's become more acceptable, it's become less! As others have noted, this was originally a phrase about a wad of cash (particularly in the context of sitting down at a gambling table). But "shooting your wad" sounded so...er...moist that it acquired the second meaning. Now the dictionary definition looks like this:

    13. shoot one's wad, Informal.
    a. to spend all one's money: He shot his wad on a new car.
    b. to expend all one's energies or resources at one time: She shot her wad writing her first novel and her second wasn't as good.
    c. Slang: Vulgar. (of a man) to have an orgasm.

    Based on the reaction in this thread, I conclude that patsfans have a lot more sex than money. :)
