weekend football excitement

Here are some things you should know about me:
  1. I'm a Patriots fan.
  2. Tom Brady swearing on the sidelines tickles me EVRY TIEM. He has the coolest & quietest demeanor ever but all his energy and passion comes out for the game. I love it.
  3. The NE Slot Receivers are some of my favorite things. It started off as just an admiration for Wes Welker and just how effective he was. Always making those catches on the slant and being small enough to cut through the tough defenders. Our offense methodologically worked down the field 10 yards at a time. Julian Edelman and Danny Woodhead were soon brought and the three of them were like my magical elves. Between the Slot Receivers for short passes and the Boston TE Party for longer passes, our offense was beautiful to behold! But, then, Danny and Wes were traded, Rob Gronkowski was riddled by injury, and Aaron Hernandez allegedly killed everyone so... Julian was on his own for a while. Danny Amendola was brought in but a nagging groin injury during his first season kept him mostly out of play. This year was the first year we had healthy slot receiver and my mini men were pretty exceptional. I love watching them play!
  4. I love Julian Edelman. Like... love love. He's handsome, looks absolutely delicious in a suit, has a great sense of humor, and, to top it off, is pretty damn good at this football shit. He was a QB in undergrad and managed to transition into an amazing WR, Punt Returner, and Defensive Back in his professional career. He is "Minitron", a clever take on Calvin Johnson's "Megatron". In this weekend's AFC divisional game, he channeled talents of yesteryear for this amazing play:

I think I may have watched this clip over 50 times by now and I'm totally excited that someone decided to make #Edelmendola a thing. Despite his past life as a QB, Edelman stated they've only had this play in the books for a couple of weeks. I'm glad it came to light because it's pretty friggin sweet. And, yes, we all know you hate Bill and the Patriots ever since Spygate but... Bill Belichick is really a genius. And he's an even better coach post-Spygate.

ProFootball Talk: NFL Morning After

Now we have to get through Andrew Luck and the Colts in the AFC Championship game this weekend. I have faith we will make it through. I also praying that the Lord orchestrates a miracle and have the Packers beat the Seahawks in the NFC Championship. I don't want to see the Legion of Boom in the Super Bowl, man. I just don't!
