Saw some of the celebration footage with Snoop etc and the boys on the dance floor., They had a great time, and Blount aint holding no grudges, he was loving it.

283 diamonds are in the Patriots Super Bowl ring.

Great or greatest troll job ever?

What is the significance of the "283"?

I've decided that I may look very closely at buying a Super Bowl ticket this year. Living in Minneapolis, I won't need to worry about flights/hotels.

With Brady being 40, they may not make too many more Super Bowls in the near future.

The Joker has nothing on these guys and the joke is more often than not on those that go after them

The Patriots have a long way to go in catching the Montreal Canadiens and New York Yankees when it comes to sporting villainy.

That being said... never in my wildest dreams did I ever think the Patriots would be THE dominant team in the NFL. Ever.

When I was in high school, my younger brother and I were the ONLY two Patriots fans we knew!!! And we lived in the town the American Revolution started in!!! The Patriots record during my high school years was 14-50. Fourteen wins and FIFTY losses! It was a tough time to be a Pats fan.

The last 15 years have been amazing. I savor every. single. win.

Will be nice to see the quarterback with the highest completion percentage in a season of all time Sam Bradford hoist the Lombardi on their home turf.

Thank God I'm not a Vikings fan. I love tormenting my brother in law over it. He despises Brady. Watching the Super Bowl at his house last year was tremendous. Seeing him realize what was happening was incredible fun.

I'm gonna guess it's Pats/Packers or Pats/Cowboys this year. If it's either of them, prices are gonna go through the roof as we get closer and closer...Packers fans won't have far to go and can deal with the cold, and Cowboys fans haven't been able to see their team in ages.

I figure if it's anyone but those two teams, prices will actually dip a bit closer to the game, but I don't wanna take that risk. I'm gonna keep an eye on things and if I can get a ticket for $3500 or less, I'm gonna have a hard time saying no.

Hahaha your brother in law and I would get along! I love them. But I do like Brady. They will never win a Super Bowl.

Just perusing Seat Geek and there are some lower end zone seats for around $4000 or so (w/ fees). And some 300 level seats for around $3000 w/ fees. Not nearly as crazy as I'd anticipated.

So hard to justify...but a Super Bowl (watching the Pats) is high on my bucket list.

Will they increase in value the closer you get so you can make some money if the pats don't make it?

I think it'll depend a lot on who the teams are.

If it's Dallas or Green Bay from the NFC, the tickets are gonna be very highly priced IMO.

But if the AFC team isn't one of New England, Pittsburgh, or maybe Denver, I bet prices drop bigtime.


My guess as to the highest priced/lowest priced matchups...

Pats/Packers
Pats/Cowboys
Steelers/Packers
Broncos/Packers
Steelers/Cowboys
Broncos/Cowboys
Pats/Seahawks
Steelers/Seahawks
Broncos/Seahawks

He even went down to the field early expecting to celebrate.

It was hilarious.

ps, i didnt feel bad at all. They got what they deserved by counting their chickens before they hatched

I like that move a lot. Not because Harris is a star, he's not. But they are somewhat limited at LB so it's a good fit.

And it works perfectly cause LB was one of the only positions we were a bit short. Harris is a solid vet

Great signing. LB was literally the only area that had a hole.
