Undefeated  Patriots vs The Undefeated and defending Super Bowl Champion Colts next Sunday should be a great game !!!!! Brady on a record breaking pace ( in quest for a fourth super bowl ring ) and Peyton ( won his first last year ) is one of the all time best.  Figure the Colts will be underdogs at home !!

On the subject, how many are as unhappy about the prospect of a European Super Bowl as I am?  Imagine taking one of the biggest U.S. TV viewing experiences of the year and televising it from Europe!  What kind of sponsors would they have?  Does Beck's have Clydesdales?  Puleese! Yet, with the more open minded telecasting, there wouldn't be a "wardrobe malfunction", but a planned stripping of the Swedish National Women's Volleyball Team!!  HHMMMMM, on second thought that's much better than naked horses!

Tom,

Congratulations

to you and the Terriers for reaching the Championship!

Good luck Saturday!

 

{I know it was your admonition, "Gentlemen, it is better to have died a small boy than to fumble this football" that motivated them.}

Tom,

Congratulations to you and the Terriers!

 

I wouldn't add clinking glasses (like Terrry) since we are talking about student athletes from a Catholic high school. So we know they have no conception of what is in those classes.

 

Don't let those Terriers get too big heads! Remember Mater Christi's football team was undefeated for its entire existence.

John,
 
I noticed that you wrote about "glasses" but then said
that students at St. Francis Prep have no conception of what is in those "classes."  The Freudian Slip strikes again!!!
