Super Bowl XLIX: New England Patriots 28, Seattle Seahawks 24 (3-0) (Sunday, February 1, 2015)


My boys did it! They got ring No. 4 for Tommy and it was a crazy game!

Tom now has 4 Super Bowl rings as a starting quarterback, tied with Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw. He is the only starting quarterback with 6 Super Bowl appearances. He passed Joe Montana for most Super Bowl touchdowns (13, with 4 last night) and threw 20 complete passes in the first half, a Super Bowl record.

Julian Edelman was sparkling, Gronk fantastic, and JoJo LaFell did his part. Darrelle Revis, Brandon Browner, Devin McCourty and LeVar Arrington were stellar for most of the game (some gaffes, but the same could be said of the offense). Undrafted rookie Malcolm Butler made the game-winning interception at the very end. Whew! Wasn't looking good there for a bit! :)

Bill Belichick ties Chuck Noll of the Steelers for most Super Bowl wins as a Head Coach. He has two other rings as a Defensive Coordinator for the Giants.

Rob Ninkovich, Jamie Collins, Vince Wilfork, Shane Vereen...the list goes on and on as guys 'did their job'. And, man, was it sweet that Roger Dodger (Goodell) had to hand the Lombardi Trophy to Robert Kraft, his old buddy who he left to twist in the wind for two weeks. Kraft barely spoke to him. Oh, and there's been a recent report that the deflated footballs were at the minimum after all, only one below standard. I doubt that will be leading the evening news, eh? The haters are stewing in their own bile!

I love Manning Face when Peyton Manning effs up or reacts to his teammates' mistakes, and now there's Sherman Face. The Seahawks were celebrating a little early with nine minutes to go. Tsk, tsk! It ain't over 'til it's over, boys!

Tom said he learned who his friends were these past weeks. I think he was shocked at the amount of hate and venom directed at him and he's never been an a-hole like some stars. He had a cold and looked absolutely wrung out at the end of the game. The Arizona weather was taking a toll on everyone.

You can bet the team wanted to win this one not just for themselves, but for Tommy and Bill. They saw what had happened last week and they must have gotten fed up. It must feel extra-good this morning to wake up as Super Bowl champs.

It's a big question as to why the Seahawks just didn't give the ball to Marshawn Lynch at the end instead of throwing it. That's a puzzler, all right!

It's snowing like crazy here and we don't care. :) The parade may have to be delayed a day, but get the duckboats out! There will be a parade again through the city of Boston, my friends! Whoo hoo! *dances joyfully*

Yes! Yes! Yes! The 3rd quarter was a bit of a disaster for the Pats but somehow I knew when Ninkovich made that sack that things were going to turn around. What amazing fight by Brady and the whole bunch.

That INT by Seattle... I just hate that the 'worst call in NFL history' hyperbole overshadowed everything that went into making that play so important. And its not as though it really was a dreadful call given that Belichek just did what everyone had said he was going to do: he was trying to force Wilson to beat them with his arm by stacking the line. Wilson thought his receiver was open, Butler made one hell of a play, game over. Well, almost over - I was terribly worried about a safety. That encroachment penalty was almost as big a mistake as the previous play IMO.

Anyways, enjoy the snow and the well earned victory parade. Go Pats!

There were so many twists and turns to this game I couldn't completely relax until the very end. :) The Seahawks didn't do themselves any favors by starting a fight at the very end, either.

So I'm totally logging on here for the first time in ages, but since the Pats won, I had to come and stop by and say 'yay! congrats!' Late to the party, I know, but still!

The game was awesome and almost gave me and my sister a heart attack, but it was totally worth it! And the parade looked awesome too (saw it on TV). Brady = GOAT and no one can tell us differently. The season was crazy and this was the perfect ending.

Tom said he learned who his friends were these past weeks. I think he was shocked at the amount of hate and venom directed at him and he's never been an a-hole like some stars.
Seriously, he's never had his integrity questioned and the fact they were treating him like a criminal was disgusting. I refused to watch that 30 min press conference because I couldn't handle it. :\

I hope you're doing well! ♥

Hi, hon! I thought of you during the celebration and hoped you'd had a chance to see the game. Your sis, too! :)

It was one of the craziest Super Bowl games evah, but it turned out the right way! ;)

Tom was pretty shocked but he knows who his friends are. His teammates all rallied behind him and his family was there for him. Did you see him with his son in the parade? The kid was cute, holding the trophy and giving it a kiss! He's got Daddy's style! ;)

That presser was a disgrace to the journalism profession. The regular beat reporters expressed their embarrassment because it was like a pack of slavering dogs!

I am doing well. I hope you and your sister are, too.

Four rings, baby! GOAT! GOAT! GOAT! :)

Aww, I was thinking of you too! I knew you'd be celebrating over there. We wouldn't miss it for the world, and we really wanted to see if we could go to the game since it wouldn't have been a long trip but the ticket prices got outrageous and we just couldn't justify it. Oh well, we had fun at home, and we were jumping up and down just like Brady when Butler got that interception. ;)

Yes! After that Kearse catch, I was ready to destroy things (what is with that stadium?), but like you said, the right team won this time!

He even got his celeb buddies defending him! Did you see the video of John Kraskinski, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Chris Evans on Kimmel? They did a skit all claiming to be the 'locker room guy'. It was hilarious.

Did you see him with his son in the parade? The kid was cute, holding the trophy and giving it a kiss! He's got Daddy's style! ;)
I saw it! That kid is too cute (all his children are adorable). Brady's adoring face watching his son was too precious.

Ugh, seriously. They expected him to admit guilt, after that stupid report came out, claiming that Brady admitted that he did it in a closed door meeting with his teammates (and if it was closed door, how did they get his info, I'd like to know) and when he didn't, they were pissed. Jerks. I was glad Kraft came out and said he wanted an apology to Brady, Belichick and the organization if the Pats were cleared. They won't get it, but it was a good, strong statement.

Yay! I'm glad to hear it. Both my sister and I are doing well too, thank you. :)

Ha, ha, yes, it was crazy over here! I watched with my sister and brother-in-law and we went nuts! :)

Super Bowl ticket prices are ridiculous! Frankly, you were better off at home: more comfy and with a great view, and it didn't cost you a fortune! :)

That sounds like a cool skit!

We can never know for sure what goes on behind closed doors, but the way Tom talks about his kids and how his voice sounds leads me to believe that he's a good father. He does a weekly interview during the season on our local sports talk radio station and sometimes you can hear his kids in the background, and once in awhile they'll be saying, "Daddy! Daddy!" and he's so patient with them and laughing. They're all still pretty young.

The Pats will never get an apology even if they're cleared but Robert Kraft needed to step up and he did it. He and good buddy Roger Goodell are definitely on the outs now! And after Kraft defended Goodell during the whole Ray Rice thing. What an ingrate!
