Not a Site You See Every Day

A B-2 bomber flying over Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA (home of the New England Patriots) on opening day.  The non-reflective surfaces of the plane combined with the fact that most of the light was coming from above it prevented the visibility of any real detail.  Even the close-up pix I took look like I glued a triangular piece of construction paper on a photo of the sky. 

I love fly-bys.  Truly awe-inspiring.

Bill Belichick is Scaring Me to Death

I’m a pretty rabid New England Patriots fan. 
I’m a season ticket holder and I rarely miss a game.  I know it’s
easy to be spoiled as a football fan in New England – just in case you
were visiting another solar system over the last few years, the
Patriots won 3 out of 4 Superbowls.  But yes, I DO expect to win another Superbowl really soon.

Bill Belichick, the Pats coach, has earned an almost God-like
status.  Not only in New England, but throughout the football
community.  The guy has made strange moves and yet still fielded
great teams.  This year, though, any sane person has to question
what’s going on.  The team has already let the following free
agents go:

  • David Givens
  • Tom Ashworth
  • Tim Dwight
  • Andre Davis
  • Willie McGinest
  • Adam Vinatieri
  • Matt Chatham
  • Stephen Neal???

Belichick thinks he can build the only bargain (out
of what the Pats call “value” players) team in the NFL.  I hope
he’s right.  It’s not clear to me that there are any really great
free agents out there left to make a major impact and I doubt that
we’re gonna draft everyone we need.

One thing is gonna be for sure . . . either there are going to be a
bunch of lean years ahead, or Bill Belichick really is a football
