WEEK SIX VS. DALLAS COWBOYS W 20-16
well, our patriots took all that stress i was expecting last week and saved it up for a heart attack game against the dallas cowboys. i’m not gonna lie- it was ugly, with a slew of turnovers and penalties on both sides, and it came right down to the wire.
luckily, our fearless quarterback is particularly skilled at walking that wire, and with 2:31 left, he went 8 for 9, capped off by a touchdown pass to aaron hernandez with 22 seconds to spare! i should’ve known tommy had it under control, but i spent most of the drive with my forehead planted on the shoulder of a stranger. nothing like a nailbiter to help you make friends! looks like the coaches were slightly alarmed too, but tommy was nothin but focused. here he is, swaggering off to go all john wayne on the cowboys.
every week, wes welker stretches to the tips of his toes for the sake of some amazing play, but rather than show this week’s incredible touchdown extension, i’m gonna mix things up. instead, here’s wes welker stretching to the tips of his toes...for the sake of the kids! or maybe for the sake of looking proportional next to tommy. say what you will, i’m told he’s perfectly-davlynn-sized. – and he’s totally adorable on his tip toes. heart ya wes! call me!
as loathe as i am to reward waiting – literally – until the last minute, i can’t deny tom brady an award that specifically celebrates his leadership, competitiveness and general roguish charm when he leads and competes in a roguishly-charming fashion to win the game. so, in spite of an impressive performance by our defense that kept us in the game and let tommy play the hero, the tommy of the week goes to tom brady. here he is, showing off his most competitive (and roguishly-charming) quarterback expression. bet he practices that in the mirror!
we’re on the bye this sunday, and while i usually offer to think happy thoughts for your not-on-the-bye team, they’ve already been diverted to the st. louis cardinals and julia, who always thinks happy patriots thoughts for me. so, think happy cardinals thoughts – or get a jumpstart on positive vibes for our return against pittsburgh. don’t worry, i’l remind ya again in the highly-anticipated tommy-of-the-bye, which will appear somewhere around this time next week.
have a great one, and go pats – and cards!
