Good to be here. What a long day, Sunday: My new TV went through six units of plasma.
Pats' new theme: Live and Let Dynasty The Patriots have been quietly confident for a while. After the game Tom Brady guest-starred on The Simpsons, and his animated character was already wearing three rings.
The Eagles did not go away empty-handed. For finishing second they get to take home the Stanley Cup.
Bill Belichick's day got off to a strange start when he went to the wrong bench after coming out of the tunnel. But to be fair, he thought he saw a Goodwill bin and wanted to get another sweatshirt.
Terrell Owens had a phenomenal game despite having pins in his right ankle. To help his recovery, Owens slept in a hyperbaric chamber he had shipped down. Actually, he didn't want to sleep in the hyperbaric chamber, but he couldn't get a hotel room.
The NFL indecency police went a bit overboard. Who got Flea to change the name of his group to the Red Zone Chili Peppers?
And the halftime show was a little too tame. Were you like me? Were you hoping Paul McCartney would cut loose and sing All My Heterosexual Loving?
This year's commercials were weird. I'm not sure whose ad that Aussie Rules football spot was, but Gladys Knight had more yards after the catch than Freddie Mitchell.
By the way, those ads for careerbuilder.com with all the monkeys running around the office? That was a reenactment of the Vikings' war room on draft day.
And Ford pulled an ad featuring a clergyman being tempted by a new pickup truck. Good move. These days, you don't want clergy and pickup in the same scene.
