Well if you were an Atlanta Falcons fan you were loving the first half. And if you were a New England Patriots fan you were loving the last 10 minutes. Ok loving might be the wrong word, having a mild heart attack might be more appropriate. And Somewhere in the middle Lady Gaga showed up and did a lot of jumping.
21-3 Falcons at Halftime.
So it must have been Lady Gaga’s halftime performance because the Patriots would rattle off 31 unanswered points to win their fifth Super Bowl. Mean tweets and Facebook posts about the Patriots and Tom Brady ceased after that this and this catch by Julian Edleman.
Sorry Julian but it was Julio Jones who had the catch of the night.
In the end, revenge is a dish best served cold.
Now after seeing this and the College Football National Title game, the fact is that something has to be done about the amount of press on the field. Players, coaches, etc can’t even get to each other to embrace because of the amount of cameras shoved in their face.
Being Who You Are
We’ll start with Lebron being Lebron.
Then Blake being Blake
Why is there talk of Chicharito getting a ‘Beckham-like’ deal with MLS? Because he does things like this…..
The Record Breaking
Yes the New England Patriots broke a record with the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history but that wasn’t the only record broken this week. The Golden State Warriors Draymond Green became the first player in NBA history to record a triple double without scoring in double figures.
New York Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist became the 12th goalie in NHL history to hit 400 wins. He did it Saturday night in front of his home town crowd in New York.
We had our first, and usually only, four overtime game in college basketball last weekend. Alabama topped South Carolina 90-86. Then a few days later Wyoming topped Fresno State in a four overtime classic 102-100. And if that wasn’t enough, Wafford outlasted Samford 131-127. Here’s to a good night sleep.
New York State Of Chaos
If the New York Knicks weren’t in the world’s largest media market these things might not get this level of attention. But they did.
It’s a long a sordid story with multiple points of view and opinions. Essentially you probably need the NYPD to come in and get the whole story. That being said, the results are the results. Charles Oakley will not be attending anymore Knicks games, the head of security is in the unemployment line and Carmelo Anthony and Phil Jackson are still having a twitter war.
