    The last time we weren't in the AFCCG was NINE years ago.

    BEFORE the Bruins finally won a Cup in my lifetime without Bobby Orr.

    The last time we didn't make the Super Bowl I was moonlighting at Bertucci's.

    Last night I dreamed I was asking Denver Pyle if he hypnotized Bill Belichick into going for it TWICE instead of kicking field goals. "It was mah Duke boys..."


    I think I underestimated what kind of adjustment it will take not to be playing for the title every year.


    I'm telling myself what a nice person and great coach Raymond Berry is, except for that gargantuan Achilles' heel wearing No. 11 who went to Illinois.

    I'm thinking about who I was dating when the Snow Plow game happened.

    I'm thinking of looking up friends from High School in 1978...whom I haven't seen since 1978...I think I blame Mike Reiss for it; by the way I have no idea what the hell he's referring to when he kept referencing it after losing to the Dolphins. What? The Chip Bacon game? What? Stupid media hyperbole that makes no sense.

    It was nothing like this with the Celtics. Because Red was here. I never worried. Russell retires? Draft Dave Cowens. Havlicek retires? Draft Larry Bird. And I knew we were never winning another title after Ainge stupidly let James Posey go, so that was no shock at all.

    I...just...feel...weird...

    Clearly, I should have asked for Troy Brown's number when I bumped into him a couple years back.

    Then I could call him now and I know he'd be able to calm me down, reassuring me that everything will be all right.

    NFL Hall Of Famer Dies At Faneuil Hall After Being Trampled In MLK Day Stampede

    By JOE GRAND, CLARE TRAPEZO and RICH SHANGHRILA

    Former NFL player Shannon Sharpe died late Monday after an "out-of-control" pack of Paul Revere impersonators on horseback were suddenly frightened and trampled him, police said.

    The Martin Luther King Day stampede plunged the iconic Boston shopping outlet into chaos, however no one else was injured as the horde was quickly calmed down.

    The troupe of men dressed as the famous revolutionary patriot hero were displaying public drills for the crowd heavily packed with tourists.

    A witness statement to police stated that the animals were "spooked by something the victim was holding in his arm", later identified as an iron Denver Broncos horse logo bookend. However, another bystander said he believed that the Baltimore Ravens jersey Sharpe was wearing is what triggered the panic.

    Officers who arrived to perform CPR on the sports analyst said the riders acted heroically in preventing any other danger to pedestrians.

    "They restrained those horses, and it all happened pretty fast," Boston Police Sgt. Poetic Justice stated. "But apparently when they saw the victim carrying that item, they stampeded. It caught everyone off guard."

    "Fortunately, everybody was soon able to resume and enjoy their shopping."

    His brother Sterling stated, "At least he didn't have to live to hear that Super Bowls XXXII and XXXIII have just been vacated and the titles stripped from the Broncos due to their cheating."

    Sharpe's talk show cohost, Skip Bayless, was removed on air by paramedics when he suffered an apparent heart attack, screaming "The Patriots taped those walk throughs! The Patriots taped those walk throughs!"

    Let's agree to disagree and that we'd better still be playing a year from now or I will be in serious trouble.

    Actually he’s like the most difficult target in the NFL. Because he sucks.

    I’ll take responsibility for the early exit. In the 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018 seasons I lived in Mass. During 2015 and 2019 I’ve lived in two other New England states. Anyone in Mass want to welcome me into their home for next season to continue the Pats streak of making the Super Bowl every season I live there?

    We need to start a thread which is a tutorial for younger/newer fans that explains that the NFL season can continue after the Patriots are eliminated.

    Yes but Belichick would say after Superbowls how far behind in time he was preparing for the next season. Not this year....how's that for a glass half full approach?
