Tim Tebow has been with the Patriots one day and Tebow-mania is gripping Foxboro…..kind of.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick addressed the media circus and lulled them all to sleep on the Tebow signing.
Well at least the Hoodie is downplaying Tebow, but not the Patriots Pro-shop. They are already taking pre-orders for the Tim Tebow #5 jersey.
I guess he is a roster lock or there are going to be a lot of upset Tebow-ites who dropped $100. Looks like the Patriots locker room is not getting caught up in Tebow-mania but the team has no problem profiteering from it.
I was looking forward to the Boston Strong concert ever since it was announced. Yes, it was very frustrating when it sold out in 1.1 seconds and the stream was extremely choppy for the first hour , but then it became a special night of epic heights except for one act of pure SELFISHNESS. His name rhymes with Dane Cook, but before we get into that let’s highlight the wicked awesomeness of the evening.
Aerosmith was great leading an all-star jam of “Dirty Water”.
Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi and BC legend Doug Flutie expressed their love for the city, the latter with a well placed F-Bomb.
NKTOB had an awesome set bringing on special guests like Bell Biv Devoe & Boyz II Men which brought the crowd to their feet and to tears. Donnie Wahlberg gave the Bruins “617 Boston Strong” Bruins jersey off his back to bombing victim Jeff Bauman.
The Patriots announced today that former linebacker Ted Bruschi will be the next member inducted into the team’s Hall Of Fame. Bruschi edged out former head coach Chuck Fairbanks and offensive tackle Leon Gray. It was just a matter of time before Bruschi, who embodied “The Patriots Way, would receive this honor.
“Mr. Kraft called me on the phone last night and let me know, gave me the news,” Bruschi said. “He told me he was very proud of me to be inducted in the Patriots Hall of Fame, and I told him how much it meant to me.”
Bruschi was drafted in 1996 in the third round out of Arizona University. He appeared in five Super Bowls with the Patriots winning three. However, championships did not define the man or the player. He was measured by his dedication, leadership and courage. The latter being tested after he suffered a stroke in 2005.
Most players would have called it quits after such a health scare, but not Mr. Full Tilt, Full Time. The word quit is not part of Bruschi’s vocabulary. He fought and clawed his way back and returned to play three more seasons for the only NFL team he knew.
And gave Patriots fans a lifetime of memories…..Congratulations Tedy.
Looks like former Patriots teammates Tom Brady & Tedy Bruschi are quite the fans of Kentucky Derby winner Orb. TB12 was rocking his bow tie and giddy as a school girl before he was gang tackled by Bruschi and others.
Patriots fans everywhere remember last time Tom & Tedy went this BONKERS!
Hopefully, Orb can return the favor when Tom leads the Patriots to their first Super Bowl victory in nine years.
