Merry Holidays Everyone!

Here's a video... shared by teegee... that just cracks me up. Best drinking song ever. Well. If you think you know a better one, lemme know! Its by the Gaelic Storm.



Now I must make a comment about the New England Patriots football team. They are showing off. Last year everybody thought they were running up scores. My response was... they had some records to crush. But its this year is where they are really showing off. Its a contest.... how many key injuries can a football team have and still win. By the fourth quarter in Sunday's game they were out (from back in the season), starting QB stud Tom Brady, safeties Rodney Harrison and James Sanders, of the three starting defensive linemen they had one (Wilfork and Warren out), linebackers Thomas (very big loss) and Bruschi and Woods were injured, and rookie CB Wheatley injured (he was a starting CB at the time of injury.) That's just defense. A serious portion of the season was spent with the top 3 running backs on the team out... leaving Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis who I will maintain they picked up because of his name. (He was an undrafted free agent rookie.) Thankfully the guy is a pretty good ball player, along with a great name.

So. The Pats are showing off in a very disgusting manner. Where is the outrage? Where are the Hate-riots? Where are the gleeful commentators with serious facades lathered on pronouncing that when a team is playing 2 linebackers who have been back on the team less than a week the Pats should... just... kneel the ball. Really. Where's the respect I ask you.

They deserve a lot of credit, this team. Wherever they end up, they've played with heart.
