Week 11: New England Patriots 33, Oakland Raiders 8 (8-2) (Sunday, November 19, 2017)

Pats win in Mexico City!

They dominated the Raiders for most of the game. Some Red Zone sputtering in the second half but pretty sharp overall. Kicker Stephen Gostkowski hit a 62-yard field goal! The high altitude helped but Ghost still needed talent to make one that long. WR Brandin Cooks and RB Dion Lewis were today's stars, and of course Tom was fantastic. :)

Over 77,000 people attended this game. Lot of fans of both teams. The Mexicans are very knowledgeable about American football, and at least the Pats fans enjoyed it. ;)

Bill Belichick passed Tom Landry on the all-time career wins list (271).

The Jets had their bye week and the Dolphins and Bills lost.

Hmm, I see that while No. 1 at the box office, Justice League is far below earnings expectations for Opening Weekend, Reviews (which I haven't read) are mixed. Just give us Wonder Woman movies, guys! :)

Question: I assume the Thor movie has scenes after the credits as per the Marvel custom? What about Justice League? Any sneaky scenes after the credits? I plan on seeing JL this Friday and the Thor movie when it gets to the discount theater.

Wow, first the CW yanks Arrow out of its usual slot for Riverdale, and now they're airing a new episode on Thanksgiving night while Riverdale gets to save theirs? How the mighty have fallen!

All the superhero shows are new next week. I approve! :)

Week 10: New England Patriots 41, Denver Broncos 16 (7-2) (Sunday, November 12, 2017)

Denver has never been an easy place for the Patriots to play, but this time dazzling special teams play, a clicking offense, and a defense that only blundered a few times stomped the Broncos, whose three special teams errors didn't help them at all. There was some sputtering in the red zone by the O, but they worked that out and Tom threw for 3 TDs while the Broncos' O was pretty pathetic.

So as a Pats fan it was great fun to watch our team clobber Denver and show marked improvement. They appear to be in mid-season form.

The Bills, Jets and Dolphins all lost and the Pats won. :)

Next week, at Mexico City against the Raiders! The Pats are staying out in Colorado and practicing at the Air Force Academy to acclimate to the high altitude.

Fic: Never Let It Be Forgot (4/4)

I wanted to make sure to post this today. Prayers and gratitude to all our veterans still with us, and those who are not.

Date Of Posting: November 11, 2017
Disclaimer: I don’t own ‘em, DC does, more’s the pity.

Feedback welcome and appreciated.
Author’s Notes: This AU is set in the pre-Crisis On Infinite Earths Earth-2. The Golden Age heroes lived on that Earth, and that included the Dynamic Duo. Earth-2’s Dick Grayson never split from Bruce, but he gradually made a life for himself away from Gotham. The retcon part comes as he winds up getting his Greetings from Uncle Sam. Note: The incident in Dick’s letter happened to my father. Pretty shocking for a 17-year-old from Massachusetts training for combat in Korea. Also the training camp scene. The Irish-American was my father. Welcome to the South!

The clergyman spoke his piece, then Ollie stepped up. He took a deep breath, aware of the irony of this speech being difficult for him. Usually he could talk a blue streak, but this hurt.Collapse )

The Battle of Pork Chop Hill was the last great battle of the war, a huge number of men dying just three weeks before the ceasefire.Collapse )
