Briefly. (for a change) 

Trivia #1: Who is the youngest opposing quarterback to defeat the Patriots at Gillette Stadium?

Trivia #2: Who doesn’t like Goldfish crackers? How many goldfish are considered a single serving?

Trivia #3: Tom Brady had a 13-yard run from scrimmage last Sunday. What is his career long run? 

Incredible, and why they hate us. The four major Boston sports teams have not lost (in regulation) at home in 27 consecutive games. (Bruins – 13, Celtics – 8, Patriots – 5, Red Sox – 1) The last lost was September 28 at Fenway. Last night the Bruins were trailing 3-0 in the third period and came back to tie, only to lose in OT, to keep the streak alive. 

I have CDO. It’s like OCD but all the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be. 

On December 3, 1979 (40 years ago) 11 people were killed and another two dozen injured when a crowd of thousands lined up for first-come, first-serve tickets began to stampede outside what was previously named the Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati, OH. The pre-show tragedy was for a Who concert who just this week announced their return to Cincinnati for the first time since that day. Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, the remaining original members of the band, said they are still haunted by the tragedy. 

Hilo (HI) High School senior, Keanu Keolanui, kicked a 55-yard field goal on the last play of the game to send his team home winners of the HHSAA Division I State Championship. His kick hit the crossbar and bounced over. The kick tied the high school state record. 

“I’m trying to think…” – Don’t say that. If you are trying to think then you are thinking. You are not trying to think. Got it?!

A week late but… last Sunday the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Jets. Before that win Cat Teams had been 0-15 since November 4 when the black cat ran onto the field during the Cowboys/Giants game (Lions 0-5, Panthers 0-4, Bengals 0-3, Jaguars 0-3)

Quote for the week: “You can’t win a war by digging a hole. You have to attack.” Bill Belichick

Quote for the week part deux: “You make the caption.” – Al Michaels on MNF football while showing the clip of Gronk dancing with the Lakers cheerleaders. Michaels and Collinsworth were both laughing at the time. 

Silence is golden, duct tape is silver. 

I saw where Chris Sale (elbow) has been cleared to start throwing. I tell you what, Chris. It’s December. How about you rest for a little while longer and not start throwing anytime soon? 

R.I.P. John “Jack” Fenlon (78) – my Uncle Jack. Father to 7, grandfather to 16, a great guy.

DYK: The Patriots are 41-0 at home since 2001 against opposing quarterbacks 25 years old or younger. (Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes is 23 years, 26 days old) Go Pats!

Trivia #3 answer: Tom Brady had a 13-yard run from scrimmage last Sunday. What is his career long run? – 22 yards in 2006 

“The kids couldn’t hurt Jack
And they tried and tried and tried
And dropped things on his back
And lied and lied and lied and lied

But they couldn’t stop Jack, or the waters lapping
And they couldn’t prevent Jack form feeling happy” 

– The Who
