Briefly.

Trivia #1: Only two quarterbacks in NFL history have had back-to-back postseason games where they completed 75% or better of their passes. Who are they?

Trivia #2: Who holds the record for most total yards gained in a Super Bowl? Antonio Freeman, Ricky Sanders, Andre Coleman, Desmond Howard, Jacoby Jones, Jerry Rice 

The Bruins have scored at least one point in the standings in 18 consecutive games. 

No, no comment of the MLB HOF voting. I really don’t have the time. 

Brad Marchand. Man, would we hate him on another team or what?

You may be rooting for the Celtics to reach the Finals, but that is where the dreams end. 

This week’s sign of the apocalypse (it’s been a few weeks): KFC is selling a chicken wing box that can be made into a drone. 

I still can’t figure this out. Remember that false missile alert in Hawaii? Get this. Pornhub is able to measure views by location and they reported that views to its site dropped drastically after the alert was sent out at 8:07am HST. Traffic was a massive 77% below that of a typical Saturday. However, once residents were notified around 8:45am HST that the alert was a false alarm, traffic on the porn site shot up to 48% above typical levels. 

Ya, I’ll read that… NOT! “Matthew McConaughey’s brother explains why he named his children after beer” 

You might not agree but I thought it was good to see Chris Berman, Tom Jackson and Keyshawn Johnson doing their thing after the games on Sunday. 

The Jaguars had zero turnovers in three postseason games this year. 

The dreaded “extra week before the Super Bowl” is almost over. 

Philly-banned items in certain Massachusetts cities/towns:

Montilio’s Bakery is banning Philadelphia Cream Cheese from its shelves.
The Esplanade Association is banning certain Philadelphia-themed foods, items, and people from the park. Specifically, actor Will Smith (Eagle’s fan) and Sylvester Stallone are banned from the 3.5 mile stretch the Museum of Science to the BU Bridge. Really.
 

Since their last trip to the Super Bowl in 1976 (a loss), Minnesota has been to the playoffs 21 times without a repeat trip to the Super Bowl. They also have the most road losses in playoff history.

Tom Brady’s QB rating in the 4th quarter last weekend was 136.3. 

I’ve spoken with two staunch NY Giants’ fans and both are rooting for their division rival next weekend.

In the past 10 seasons, when trailing by 10+ in the 4th quarter, the Patriots are 3-4. The rest of the NFL is 3-70. 

8 Super Bowls in 17 years.

If you’re not into “Dilly Dilly”, get over it. 

9 days until Super Bowl LII, 10 days until Truck Day!

Trivia #1 answer: Nick Foles and Joe Montana

Trivia #2 answer: Jacoby Jones (290) 

“Ziggy played guitar,
Jamming good with Weird and Gilly,
And the Spiders from Mars.
He played it left hand,
But made it too far,
Became a special man,
Then we were Ziggy’s band.”
