PREVIEWS OF COMING ATTRACTIONS

qm

What’s with all the question marks, you ask? Good question!

Here’s the answer: I’ll be busy attending a week-long, job-related seminar and time will NOT be on my side! I’ve got a couple of posts almost ready to go, but I’m unsure of exactly when. I’m going to try and get something Oscar-related for tomorrow, after that you’ll just have to stay tuned! Meanwhile, feel free to roam the archives, check out the Facebook page, and oh, yes… watch classic movies!

My Favorite Super Bowl Commercial 2017

I admit I didn’t pay much attention to the ads during last night’s nail-biting Super Bowl, but this one caught my eye. A rowdy gang of bikers are partying hardy, when one comes in and tells his brothers they’re “Blocked in!”. The gang goes outside ready for action, when they see a shiny new Mercedes AMG GT Roadster. Who’s driving? None other than Mr. Easy Rider himself, Peter Fonda! The ad was directed by the Coen Brothers, and as we say in New England, it’s “wicked funny”! Enjoy!

THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ARE YOUR SUPER BOWL LI CHAMPIONS!!

As you may or may not know, I’m a native New Englander, born and raised in Massachusetts. I watched the Patriots back when, quite frankly, they sucked. It was only when Bill Bellichick became coach and Tom Brady took over at quarterback they turned into an NFL powerhouse. Since then, I’ve watched many a classic football game and enjoyed their victories in Super Bowls past.

But nothing compares to last night. Last night was absolutely incredible. In all my years of watching football, it was… dare I say it?… the Greatest Game Ever!!

I knew the Falcons were no joke, but the way they dominated in the first half was shocking. The party I was at had grown eerily silent, and many people chose to leave after watching Lady Gaga perform. My fellow diehards and I stayed, hoping for a miracle.

We were not disappointed.

Down 28-3 in the third quarter, Brady and his bunch put it in high gear. The defense, shredded early on by Boston College alum Matt Ryan, came back to life. 28-3 turned into 28-9, thanks to a missed Stephen Gostkowski extra point. Gostkowski redeemed himself with a field goal, leaving the Pats with 16 points to make up for a tie, something that’s never happened in Super Bowl history.

Brady’s pass to Danny Amendola made it 28-18, and a two-point conversion by James White made it 28-20. Eight points down. Nearly impossible. Then came “The Catch” by Julian Edelman, between not two, but three Atlanta defenders, an impossible catch thrown by The Greatest of All Time. A touchdown from Brady to White made it 28-26, and yet another two-point conversion, this time by Amendola, tied the game. We’re headed to the first-ever Super Bowl overtime!

New England won the coin toss, marched down the field, and the unsung James White punched the ball into the end zone for Championship #5! The remaining partygoers went nuts, celebrating an incredible, unprecedented Patriots victory! And you know we all loved it when the odious Roger Goodell took the stage to present the trophy and got the shit booed out of him! Once again, the New England Patriots are your Super Bowl champions, and once again Tom Brady is game MVP, with 466 yards and two touchdowns. The Drive for Five is complete.

Mission accomplished!!
