Briefly. (very)

After last season many said: “Well, I guess it was Tom Brady all along and not Belichick.” Well, how the tides have changed.

Speaking of the Patriots… is anyone more jealous of Matthew Stafford being traded to the Rams than Matty Ryan? I actually felt bad for him last night playing for that pathetic team/coach.

Useless information supposed to fire my imagination:

They Said It: “…that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” – Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863, in his Gettysburg Address

Good news: John Spencer Jr., an African American Vietnam War veteran, was awarded a Purple Heart, Infantryman Badge and the Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Badge after the UNC School of Law’s Military and Veterans Law Clinic fought to restore his veteran’s status after it was unfairly taken from him five decades ago, according to the UNC School of Law. He was given a less than honorable discharge after taking shrapnel to the neck and battling racism and discrimination from his own command.

R.I.P. Paul F. Moran Jr. (83) – formerly of Bradford/Haverhill MA, Paul earned his PGA card in 1962 and played on the tour with the likes of Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. He once held the “Triple Crown of New England” (holding three titles simultaneously) including the Massachusetts Open, the New England PGA Championship and the New England Open. Paul was my aunt’s brother.

Some of my friends exercise every day, meanwhile I’m watching a show I don’t like because the remote fell on the floor.
