When Jurassic World first opened, enterprising reporters had asked the eminent Drs. Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm, the survivors of the first park, what their opinions were of the new one.Collapse )
Week 2: New England Patriots 31, Miami Dolphins 24 (2-0) (Sunday, September 18, 2016)

What a wacky game! It was like Jekyll-and-Hyde out there at Gillette Stadium!

First half: Patriots dominate with a sharp offense and defense. Jimmy G. looks All-Pro. Tommy must have snuck onto the field wearing a Jimmy G. mask. :) Unfortunately, Jimmy was hurt before the second half ended. In came 3rd-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett! This kid is a rookie who hasn't been watching Tom and this offense up-close-and-personal.

Second half: Jacoby's no Jimmy, but he didn't stink up the joint like the Pats' D, who inexplicably became awful in the second half. They'd contained Miami QB Ryan Tannehill very well and then suddenly let him carve them up. The Dolphins kept scoring and were one TD away from tying the game after the Pats kicker missed a field goal to ice the game. Luckily someone was awake on the D and intercepted the ball in the end zone. Phew!

Stand-outs besides Jimmy Garoppolo were Martellus Bennett, Nate Solder, LeGarrette Blount, and Julian Edelman.

So now we have a short week as the guys play Thursday at home against the Houston Texans. Will Jimmy play? I'd bet no due to the shoulder injury, but we won't know for sure until the injury report on Wednesday. Foxboro is like the Kremlin when it comes to information. :)

Note: All three of our quarterbacks are hotties! Google any of them and you'll see. :)

Happy Birthday!!!

Week 1: New England Patriots 23, Arizona Cardinals 21 (1-0) (Sunday, September 11, 2016)

Could the Patriots go on the road up against one of the best teams in the AFC without their unjustly-suspended star quarterback (subbed by a guy who has seen little regular-season action in his career), injured All-World tight end, two stalwarts of the offensive line, and various bumps and bruises?


Jimmy Garoppolo didn't wilt under the bright lights. He did make some mistakes, but that's to be expected. Nothing boneheaded, anyway, and while the secondary got burned by Larry Fitzgerald, the guy's a Hall-of-Famer.

Otherwise the offense moved efficiently and Jimmy G. was very comfortable with Julian Edelman to start as his primary receiver. He did spread the ball around and threw for a TD. He even caught his own ball! Ha! Guess Giselle was wrong ("My husband cannot throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time!"). ;)

The Pats were dominant in the first half but the Cardinals woke up in the second half and came close to winning the game. Not easy-peasy but still showcased Coach Bill Belichick's preparation skills and that of his staff. It also spotlighted the skill of the players as they executed the game plan.

Jimmy G. will probably have his ups-and-downs. The more film there is on a newbie, the more likely that opposing defensive coaches can find a way to slow him down or even stop him. Guys like Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III were the Next Big Thing, but they've flamed out. Kaepernick is better known now for sitting down while the national anthem plays and RGIII lasted one game before being put on IR for the season.

The pundits were almost universal in picking the Cardinals to win. So much for punditry! :)

Tom watched the game from his couch and congratulated Jimmy and the team on the win. Giselle posted a photo of Tom throwing her the football in their backyard. It's a Brady World! :)

Everyone in the AFC East Division except for the Pats lost yesterday. Guess that opportunity to grab the division crown from the Pats is hit a speed bump. :)


So as the 2016 season opens, the greatest quarterback in the game will be sitting out a quarter of the season for NOTHING!!!

Think about that for a minute. A QUARTER OF THE SEASON. No proof. The Ideal Gas Law deflated the footballs in thw 2015 AFC Championship. The NFL haven't released any air measurements from last season. What does this suggest to you?

Yes, I'm biased, I'm a New England Patriots and Tom Brady fan, but even if I wasn't, I can recognize a frame-up when I see it.

If you are interested in the anatomy of a smear and a frame-up,

Read onCollapse )

So there you have it, a man who's always done things right, has an exemplary work ethic, never had a violation, declared his innocence under oath, and received a harsher penalty than Ray Rice, who knocked his then-fiance out cold in an elevator (Rice received 2 games before the tape was shown and people vilified NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell), and received the same penalty (4 games) as Greg Hardy, who beat up his girlfriend and threw her on a futon loaded with assault rifles, then dragged her by the hair and threw her into the bathtub anf choked her). Just recently Giants kicker Josh Brown, guilty of beating his wife multiple times, was given a 1-game suspension even though the rule is 6 games for domestic violence offenses.

That is justice in the NFL: lies, no evidence, deception, and envy sacrificing the face of the NFL. It's like the NBA Commissioner dragging an innocent LeBron through the mud. 

The Patriots have placed Tom's number on top of the lighthouse in Gillette Stadium and have hung a banner with his oicture. Let's hope Pats fans scream "Brady, Brady, Brady!" and "Go to hell, Goodell!" every home game. The networks will go crazy muffling the latter chant. They probably won't show the banner on TV. Too afraid of the NFL.

Happy Star Trek Day!!! :)

Happy Star Trek Day, my friends! :)

Yep, today is the 50th anniversary of that groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon, Star Trek! It debuted on NBC this day 50 years ago and ran for three years, inspiring an animated series and three television spin-offs, six TOS movies, several ST:TNG movies, and the current Reboot. Even if a person hasn't watched a single second of any of the TV shows or movies, they're aware of who Kirk and Spock are, "Beam me up, Scotty!", and probably tribbles! :) It was the show with the first interracial kiss on TV (Kirk and Uhura in Plato's Stepchildren) and featured an integrated cast (though I Spy and Hogan's Heroes beat them out by a year, it was still a major thing in 1966). The show entered the cultural lexicon a long time ago and inspired people in real life to go into scientific careers and to join NASA. It helped create modern Fandom and kicked off the slash movement within that Fandom. You can thank K/S for the abundance of slash from all TV shows and movies today.

Enjoy the day, pet a tribble, play the Vulcan lyrette, and create your own adventure on the holodeck. Above all, live long and prosper, my friends! :)
(Preseason) Week 4: New York Giants 17, England Patriots 9, (3-1) (Thursday, September 1, 2016)

The Patriots did lose their last preseason game of the season, but wins and losses mean little before the regular season. What was interesting was that Tom played the whole first half. As the starter, he would sit out this game, but of course the NFL in its infinite un-wisdom has suspended him A QUARTER OF THE SEASON FOR DOING NOTHING WRONG.

The Patriots once again showed support by putting his number atop the Gillette Stadium lighthouse and projecting his picture on that tower. He will be back with a VENGEANCE!
