Small victories right now people.
As the euphoria of the Pats miracle win is slowly wearing off I find myself sinking back into a Gronk depression. I’m looking for anything to keep my spirits up at this point. This Eli sign should do the trick for a couple minutes at the very least.
Love Mr. Kraft checking out the action.
A great win. An improbable win. A win that sums up why we’re the Patriots and Cleveland is Cleveland. The Browns could have been up 50 at the 2 minute warning and they still would have found a way to lose. The Browns never had a chance to win this game. Ever. It’s a testament to the Pats will to win and the Browns will to lose. But maybe the greatest lesson with today’s victory is that it snapped me out of my depression. Like here I was feeling all sad for myself with the Gronk injury. Just curled up in the fetal position on my couch silently weeping to myself. And then Cleveland slapped me in the face and woke me up. They remind me to appreciate what I have. Because as devastating as the Gronk injury is things could always be way worse. I have my health. I have a good job. And best of all I don’t live in Cleveland.
I feel like crying for myself, for Gronk and for the Pats. One of the saddest sports plays I can ever remember as a Boston fan. Like the second you saw this you knew the season was over. Just gruesome. No other way to describe it. Gronk summed it best himself screaming “My Motherfucking Leg” on the ground. Horrible injury. Has nothing to do with being injury prone either. There is no human on earth who could have withstood that hit. Just really really sad.
As a side note as bad as this hit was I don’t think it was even close to dirty. This is the NFL nowadays. I don’t know what else defensive backs can do. You can’t go high. You are taught to go at the legs. You got to tackle Gronk somehow. He didn’t lead with his helmet. If you want to blame somebody blame Roger Goodell. I’d rather take my chance with concussions which are always going to be part of the game regardless of how much you pussify football than guys being forced to aim low. And spare me the he should have hit him around the waist. Kind of easier said then done when you have freak athletes going at full speed and you have a nano second to make a decision. Everybody is being taught to go low. The NFL wants hits like this. This is what they are preaching. This is what happens.

Ok I’m red hot right now with my gambling picks. 4-0-1 in mortal locks. And it took an absolute act of god for me not to be 5-0. Well today I’m pushing all my chips to the middle. I LOVE the Pats. Love em. Ride me while I’m hot. Let me take you to the promise land.Pats are coming off a lackluster effort. The Browns have packed it in for the season. I just see no way this game stays close. Jason Campbell is beyond bad. A minimum of 3 INT’s today. This has blowout written all over it. I also love the Ravens -6 against the Vikings. Double Mortal Lock city for the early games. I’ll release my 4pm lock at 3:45 via twitter. So if you want to get rich follow my ass.
So I had to chime in on this Shawn Thornton debacle. The entire city of Pittsburgh is calling for Thornton’s head. Calling him a disgrace to hockey. I got to be honest. I thought Thornton did what he had to do. I know he said he’s sick about it. I know he apologized. I believe him. But I still think Thornton did what was necessary. I’ve heard people say there is no place for this type of shit in hockey. You know what there is no place in hockey for? Kneeing defenseless players in the head who are laying on the ice. That was the play that sparked this entire incident. A play that was 100 times more brutal than what Thornton did. 9 out of 10 times the player who intentionally gets kneed in the head will be the one who needs a stretcher in that situation. Thornton’s job is to defend his teammates. The Penguins were taking cheap shots out there. Thornton already tried to fight Brooks Orpik after his borderline shot on Loui Eriksson earlier in the game and he refused to fight. Then James Neal almost kills Marchand and Thornton lost his cool. But again who can blame him? The Penguins brought this on themselves. I’m not saying Thornton doesn’t deserve to be suspended. He does. But James Neal should get double the games Thornton gets. And truthfully I wouldn’t have wanted Thornton to do anything differently than he did today except maybe pummel Neal instead of Orpik.
Bottomline is if the Penguins are going to try to paralyze your guys and then act like cowards refusing to fight afterwards you need to play dirty. You can’t just let your guys get decapitated out there. It’s an eye for an eye. That’s just the way the NHL works. The Penguins brought it on themselves. So don’t cry to me when shit like this happens. You asked for it. You got it.
UPDATE- Lots of pink hat hockey fans have their pink little panties in a bunch about this blog so let me clarify something. There is no way Thornton meant to send Orpik to the hospital. He was trying to send a message. A message that had to be sent. It was freak thing that Orpik got concussed. My point is what Neal did to Nose Face was a billion times more dangerous than what Thornton did. It’s unfortunate that Orpik had to be “evacuated”, but standing around in a circle and doing the Macerena wasn’t enough after the cheap shot on Marchand. The situation had to be escalated and it’s Shawn Thornton’s job to escalate it. It was just a freak thing that Orpik ended up getting knocked out cold like that which makes Thornton’s actions seem way worse than they actually were. Nobody is happy he had to go to the hospital. But shit happens when you play dirty and the Penguins initiated it all.
