Breaking a Mirror
DATELINE: Tom’s Foolhardy Mirror Smash
It’s a long way from Tipperary to the Super Bowl, and the Patriots were just ambushed out of the gate.
Cursed and crushed, the Patriots lost Super Bowl 52 in the first game of the season.
Roger Goodelle came to Gillette Stadium, saw the Patriots, and conquered the fans.
Off-hand observations soon turned into season-ending injury.
Tom scoffed as he smashed a mirror several months ago. Today, who’s laughing?
After losing Edelman in preseason, the Patriots started the season by losing Edelman’s replacement, Danny Amendola. Then, you throw in the defensive star Donte Hightower, and your recipe for disaster is complete.
This is not a disaster on the Lines of Harvey or Irma, but make no mistake, a Category 5 hurricane named Fate just blew away the Patriots in their home turf.
It didn’t take long for the new season rot to turn the Patriotic Belichick alchemy from gold to chaff.
Roger Goodell gave a Boston interview in which he admitted, “I’m not a football expert.” Yes, and he’s paid nearly $30million per year by the NFL.
That will certainly keep his status as no expert in the sport.
Gronk seems like a changed man. Well, anyhow, he appears to have changed his ways. During some runs, we could clearly determine that Gronk wasn’t wearing any underwear. We are not sure what this does for Tom’s advertising job for Under Armor.
As for the replacement seat of Julian Edelman, we noted that the open place on the bench next to Tom Brady was immediately taken by Danny Amendola, though he did not sit as close to Tom as Julie.
With an injury prone seat next to King Tom, no one will want to sit there for the rest of the season.
We began to keep a checklist of how many times the announcing duo mentioned that Tom Brady is 40-years-old. There was also a reference to Ponce de Leon. Next week the word of the day may be retirement.
