Tag Archives: Wes Welker
Tune in to VH1 at 9pm (est) tonight to see Wes Welker join some musicians, some models and some other NFL players including the former Patriots Matt Cassel for a broadcast Super Bowl party. The event is called “VH1’s Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam” the headliners are Duran Duran and Kid Rock. So what can we exactly expect from Wes during this event? I am hoping for some good white boy dancing. Gotta go set my Tivo.
Every year it takes me about one quarter to remember that the Pro Bowl is enormously boring. All the stars showed up minus Tom Brady. It is a really good gig for the players: one week paid for by the NFL in Hawaii, play one flag football game and then take home a brand new SUV and $45,000 in cash. But for fans it is just boring football game played at half speed. My silver lining is the picture above. Bill Belichick in a lei, khaki shorts and a red shirt. He looks like his mom dressed him.
I caught John Lynch in some pre-game coverage and thought for a good three seconds it was Wes Welker.
What a choice we have Sunday. We can route for the Jets and let’s face it that is impossible. I would rather have Vince Wilforks post game jock strap stuck to my head. What then? Root for the Steelers? They are led by a rapist. By the way where is the outcry from people over Ben Roethlisberger playing? People wanted Michael Vick drawn and quartered. I have never seen a stupid facebook post about where are Ben’s rape victims now? But I do hear about some damn traumatized dog every other day.
So what do you do? I think I am going to watch some Australian Open and hope for a nip slip. Oh yeah and Go Packers!
We are a greedy fan base and a season with no Superbowl is always disappointing to us. The Patriots did a lot better than anyone thought they would this season but that is still no comfort. It is going to be a long off season with a lot of sad departures. Wes and Julian are still under contract for next year but they still cleaned out their lockers on Monday. So sad. Bye Patriots.
