Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious! If you say it loud enough, you’ll always sound precocious. Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye. -Mary Poppins
It’s almost here! Super Sunday. Super fun day. More fun than Plaxico Burress gun day. It’s a quest for fun. I’m gonna have fun and you’re gonna have fun. We’re all gonna have so much f**king fun we’ll need plastic surgery to remove our godamn smiles. You’ll be whistling ‘Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah’ out of you’re assholes! Now that’s fun. You know what else is fun? Huh? Do ya? Sure you do. Making up All Star teams is fun. I know, I know, you wanted chicks and guns and fire trucks and hookers and drugs and booze! Do that on your own time. This my time. This my damn blog. And now without further ado, my damn Super Bowl All Star team: Read More »

Boom! Shake, shake, shake the room. Tick, tick, tick, tic, BOOM! -Fresh Prince & DJ Jazzy Jeff
Public Service Announcement:OK, here we go!NFL Action. NFL Smacktion. NFL Satisfaction. Like my main man, the Voice of God, John Facenda, always says: “Professional football in America is a special game, a unique game, played nowhere else on Earth. It is a rare game. The men who play it make it so.” Tom Brady and Randy Moss make it so. Read More »

While we’re on the subject of football, I just want you all to know, I can’t wait for this:
I know, I know. I’m a homer. Doh! A shameless homer. A brazen homer. An incorrigible homer. I don’t care. I’m also a spoiled homer. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, there’s nothing like blogging when your teams are winning. Last season, my team wasn’t winning, and like my main man little Ricky Pitino always says, “It sucks, and it stinks, and it sucks.” Read More »

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot and auld lang syne? For auld lang syne, my dear. For auld lang syne. We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet. For auld lang syne!

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Got a sad one today. Troy Brown announced his retirement yesterday during a press conference at Gillette Stadium. Troy Brown ended a 15-year career with the New England Patriots. Troy Brown is my favorite football player of all time. All time. Read More »

Welcome back. Your dreams were your ticket out. Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about. Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. -John Sebastian
Public Service Announcement: Ok here we go! Happy days are here again. The skies above are clear again. So lets sing a song of cheer again. Happy days are here again.
Yes, sports fans, happy days are indeed here again. Troy Brown is back again. I do not like the circumstances. Losing a monster like Roosevelt Colvin is never good news. But getting back my favorite Patriot is. Oh my baby’s comin’ home tomorrow. Ain’t that good news? Yeah, ain’t that news? It sure is.
I love this cat. Troy Fitzgerald Brown. What can Brown do for you? A whole lot. How about win football games? That’s what. Football players play football. Players make plays. Troy Brown plays football. Troy Brown makes plays. Troy Brown has been making plays for the New England Patriots for fifteen seasons.
Like the punt he returned in the AFC Championship game against the Steelers.
Like when as a DB, he shut down Peyton Manning and the Colts’ high-flying attack in the 2004 playoffs.
Like when he lined up as emergency quarterback to further “develop his legend.”
Like when he instinctively ripped the ball out of the Chargers’ Marlon McCree’s grasp to ensure victory.
Troy Brown has been making plays in twenty playoff appearances. Troy Brown is the team’s all-time leading receiver with 557 receptions. He has spent his entire career with the Patriots since being drafted in the eighth round in 1993. Drafted in the eighth round out of Marshall. We are Marshall!
At Marshall, Brown led the NCAA Division 1-AA in both kickoff and punt return average in 1991. His career kickoff return average still stands as an NCAA record. So do his four kickoff returns for touchdowns. He scored a touchdown every eight times he touched the football. Yowza! At Marshall, Brown claimed the Thundering Herd its first National Championship with him as its primary wide receiver and returner. From the ashes we rose!
Troy Brown rose. He rose in the championship game. In the championship game, Brown sealed the deal by intercepting a Hail Mary pass in the waning seconds of the game. Playing both sides of the ball. Gordie Lockbaum style. Good thing too.
Brown may also be needed in the defensive secondary. Again. Not only was Colvin put out of commission in that Eagles game, but Randall Gay hurt his back as well. Troy had been nursing a knee injury since the start of camp. According to NFL rules, the team had until Tuesday to activate him, place him on IR, or release him. Well, it looks like this football player still has some football playing to do. And I, for one, am glad.
It just wouldn’t be the same. Wouldn’t be the same old game. I proclaim it would be a shame if we did not hear his name. Brown was on all three of the Patriots’ Super Bowl Championship teams, as well as the Super Bowl XXXI losing team. He needs to be there for this one. He deserves to be there for this one. Third Down Troy Brown. What can Brown do for you? He can take us all to Disney World. Welcome back Troy!
