Are You Ready?

Oh yeah....I'm ready.

Time to get back to bizness after a LONG off-season and expectations are high here in Championship City. Local paper headlines today read, "Time Is Ticking", and they refer to My Tommy, who at the ripe age of 34, opens the Patriots season tonite in Miami.

Stats show that in the salary cap era, only 4 quarterbacks over the age of 31 have won a Super Bowl which means that on paper, Tommy may be fighting an uphill battle. But statistics are just numbers and stats and records are meant to be broken. Tommy's made a career out of beating the odds and there's no other NFL quarterback that I can think of that I would want taking the field tonite but Number 12.

Let's hope the offensive line can protect the golden boy, but that may be a little more than wishful thinking and My Tommy's scrambling days are numbered. The experts are saying Miami has the defensive edge and the Pats have the rushing and passing edge, but tonite should give us a clearer picture on the 2011-2012 Patriots season.

7pm kickoff.

I'm ready for some football.

YAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWN! If the lions bent them over the the table in the preseason (yeah I know blame the new guy Stafford)it tends to make me think they need to rethink their dynasty plans.

Championship City. That's funny...from a baseball perspective, I mean.

Walking Man- Eh, biggie.

Earlsie- Really dude? In the last decade, all of our professional sports teams have won at least one championship. ALL OF THEM.

As for Baseball in that decade we have won 2.

Championship City. Yes, that's what I said.

And with their new acquisition of Mr. Ochocinco..this should be an interesting season indeed.

I didn't mean to dismiss the city's accomplishments in all the sports. Just baseball. The Yankees won two in that decade as well.

(and 25 others before that...ahem)
