Am I going to write the same post-Super Bowl every year?

Written by Sabine Demosthenes

MONTREAL- It’s Monday morning and the first sentence that came to my mind was: Do the Pats have more rings in their jewelry boxes than I do in mine?

I guess they are coming closer and closer to having more rings than I do.

Foremost, I would like to congratulate the 2019 Super Bowl champion, yet again… Usually, I’m not a happy camper after another championship won by the Pats, but as I predicted, they won. So, I’m not that surprised. I was really surprised about the lack of action and the thought crossed my mind that this was the most boring match I’ve seen in the past twenty years! Omg, even Bily Whisky, my little furry son, was sleeping through it.

What happened to the Rams?

They were supposed to have Bill Belichik’splaybook in their hands. They could have won but again, The Pats showed us that they were better prepared; even if it was to play a more defensive game. Actually, both teams were in a more defensive state of mind than an offensive one.

I guess The Pats will say again in front of a camera with their biggest smile on their faces and their kids chanting: We are going to Disneyland.

Am I going to write about the half-time game?

Hm, I will only say this:

Dear NFL executive team, do you have Metallica, Smoky Robinson, Chaka Khan, Earth, Wind and Fire, Wu-Tang and Arcade Fire’s phone numbers?

I’m dropping my mic right there.

Obama drop the mic

On a positive note, The Pats have a Haitian on the team and he did the Haitian people proud. Sony Michel is a name to remember! I will gladly say, on this occasion where one sentence can contain these words, Haiti won the Super Bowl! Ok, ok, a really small part of Haiti won the Super Bowl.

I guess we are not a product of a “shit hole country”. Right, number 45?!

Now that the football season is over, I will get back to my usual: Omg, what I will do with the rest of my life (from February until September)?

I will watch the soap opera of the NBA. I will admire my curling army (like my in-laws used to do). I will get my blood pressure high by screaming at the screen while watching The Champions League and I will stress myself to the point of destroying (not really) my electric guitar while I watch Naomi Osaka win Wimbledon, the Rogers Cup, and The US Open and saying out loud Haiti!

Naomi Osaka

I guess I will survive another seven months without the boys.

Brady, Gonk and The Rest of Pats Army are going to the Super Bowl… Again

Written by Sabine Demosthenes

MONTREAL- My face this morning is like the face of Stewie from Family Guy when he is unamused by Brian’s antics (or maybe vice versa).

Last night during the Chiefs vs Pats game, when I saw there were 2 minutes left after the Chiefs touchdown, I said to the hubby – ok, I’m going to bed. It was such a stressful game! It was even stressful during the extra-time. I knew that King Brady would do the final touchdown. With only 2 minutes and The Pats have the ball, it was done. They would go to the Super Bowl and for two weeks, I would hear about how great the Pats were from my entourage and all the other Pats fans. Secretly, I hoped for a miracle from The Chiefs – a nice interception and touchdown while I was slowly falling asleep. I’m too damn old to see the writing in the sky for The Pats.

When the hubby told me they won (before going in dodoland), I was numbed. I grabbed my little Bily Whisky and told him that mommy will be grumpy for the whole week (and secretly wished I was knitting a Burn Pats Burn blanket…)

What should I write today? Like always, King Brady and his army did it again. I must mention that this guy is a class act.

After the game, Tom asked the security team if they could meet Patrick Mahomes privately, inside the Chiefs locker room, to have a chat with him.

This is sportsmanship!

A true leader and a true champion have this kind of attitude. Even when he lost a game, he goes to the other team to congratulate them. For me, this is what sports are all about.

This next Super Bowl, I’m very mad that the Rams will be the ones facing the Pats. With the way, they got there, instead of the Saints… I can’t believe it I’m writing these words, but I hope the Pats will crush them.

Yes, I said it! I hope it will be the last time I say such a thing.

And what’s up with Maroon 5 during the half-time show in Atlanta?

Really, seriously? It the NFL dealt with Kaepernick in a more mature way, maybe we could have really decent shows. Come on! It’s Atlanta and we will see Maroon 5?! Oh lord. I better find something to do (like the dishes) during this half-time show.

Now, I will get back to my grumpy face and again, congratulations to the Pats. Since I was raised to be polite, I will only say to the Rams, good luck.

I really need a drink after this post. Even if it’s early. I mean a nice hot green tea.

Come on peeps, I don’t drink a Cosmo or tequila in the morning! Sometimes I do have decent brain cells left in my brain.

Sometimes.

 

The Last Supper

This Sunday my chronicle disciples, we will witness the last supper of the New England Patriots.

Last Supper

Some of you could be calling me crazy, but I feel the end is near for this groundbreaking dynasty.

Why?

One word.

Ego!

Bill and Tom

We all knew when The Beatles were starting to dissolve. It started with the Sgt Pepper album. Bryan Epstein died and they were like lost boys with their big brother managing the everything in between part of their band. Paul McCartney had this idea that they should do an album but not as The Beatles. They will be a totally different band.

Sgt.Pepper

The album was a new chapter for them and they were still the kings of Rock ‘N’ Roll. (For me, Revolver was the game changer for them).

Revolver

Slowly but surely, the boys from Liverpool that shared the same ego,or maybe didn’t have any, were becoming men with four different egos and goals. On The White Album, it was so clear. When you listen to this album, it’s four solo projects thrown into one album.

Beatles for life

Soon after, The Let It Be Album was the result of the new dynamic in the band and we could feel the end was near. You saw this band as a unit and they became a band with two members fighting to be the leader.

NFL: AFC Championship-Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots

With this example, you can see where I am going.

Bill Belichick made sure, for so many years, that the boys didn’t bring ego into the locker room and onto the playground. He was the mastermind. They were united.

But slowly, things seemed to change. Tom Brady did a John Lennon himself, by bringing in his version of Yoko Ono aka his personal trainer into the team. He started talking like he was the man, the conquerer and the force behind The Pats.

Something seemed different. They had a damn good team but the cracks are starting to show.

The divorce will happen. Like The Fab Four that delivered their one last masterpiece, Abbey Road, as a farewell to all of us. The Patriots will win this Sunday. The only difference is some of them won’t know that things will never be the same.

They have two leaders now. One of them will send the divorce papers or say “I’m out”.

It’s won’t be Tom.

You guessed it! I predict Bill Belichick will leave, with class, and he will conquer the NFL with a brand new team.

The bets are in. Who’s with us?

Like the last song from The Beatles, here are some bittersweet lyrics:

“And in the end,

The love you take

Is equal to the love you make

Let’s enjoy the Last Supper.”

Last Supper

Amen.

Blue Monday with The Patriots

The Patriots are going (again) to the Super Bowl. I’m not a happy camper.

And to make things worst, Philadelphia Eagles are joining the party.

For all the Steelers fans, Dallas Cowboys nation and others teams, it’s a nightmare.

But I must admit the Pats have this capacity of being a discipline team and they keep their cool under stressful situation.

Tom Brady is without a doubt The Greatest (ouch) QB of all time and he will have more rings than me in his jewelry box.

Honestly, how many rings that a man need in his fingers. I could hear the hubby saying the same thing for me.

My prediction for this year Super Bowl will be the Pats as winner but I think it will be their last and the end of the dynasty. We all know what is going on but no ones really want to tackle the subject as it is.

We do read here and there some glimpse but I will make this promise that you will read really soon our theory with the help of Donnie Demosthenes aka The Educated Fool.

But let’s be in the moment, I am putting my money on Belichick’s army.

In three weeks, my blood pressure (and the rest of NFL citizens) will be lower since there will be no more football on TV.

I guess it will be the right time to watch The Crown on Netflix, to learn how to do some scrapbooking and others activities right…

Hmm hell no (except for watching The Crown).

I will cry a river until the FIFA World Cup will start.

So sad…
