FOOTBALL!

A friend of Brother AlexC:

"Mommy, teacher says everytime the Patriots score a demon gets his horns!"

In that case, I forecast a demonic January in New England. Not that I'll be rooting for them, but I think they'll make it to the Super Bowl. If there's any justice in the universe they'll get a rematch with the Giants.

B'leev I will be rooting for the Pats: a classy, disciplined organization with phenomenal talent, though I can say the same about the Packers and will have Cinderella twitchings about Houston.

I just don't look forward to listening to the "Tebow Haters" all off-season. He's essentially a rookie (16 starts) that never had a training camp (3rd string in 2010, strike and 2nd string in 2011).

I don't know if young Mister Tebow has it or not, but I have seen nothing that proves "not." He came up wanting on the road, in the playoffs, to one of the league's premiere teams playing at its top capacity. It was a long night but it was not proof.

...and another thing -- and I said the same for Kyle Orton -- no, he's not Tom Brady but he surely doesn't have the Patriots' receiving core to throw to. Decker was hurt. You cover DT. He throws it to ????

Don't like the Patriots. Sorry, JK, but I'm for ABNE (anybody but New England) at this stage. And it's not just cause I'm a sore loser (which I am). Belichek got caught cheating with a video camera a few years ago. Brady is a playboy. And Coach Pinhead errr Hoodie errr McDaniels set the Broncos back 3 years in their re-building process by being an arrogant a**.

On another note, has anyone noticed that all the press conferences before and after games are very civil these days. Everyone is saying (win or lose) how good the other team is and they did a good job and how much they appreciate their teammates. No more Rex Ryan and Superbowl guarantees. I think some of this is example set by Tim Tebow. Or maybe they are just all afraid to be next team to get Tebowed... Are you listening Brian Urlacher???

Your opinion is not unique at ThreeSources. I know a household where the name of the Pats coach shall not be invoked... But if I may spill any remaining cred from my Huntsman fling:

-- The taping incident disturbed somewhat, but I am given to believe that similar nonsense goes on all the time. The operative words were your first three: "Belichek got caught."

-- Playboy? A devotee of Ayn Rand decries consensual promiscuity?

-- Coach McD indeed devastated the Broncos. He's a good guy who got in over his head. But I do not hate the Patriots organization because he is in it. A part of me has never forgiven Pat Bowlen for swapping Coach Shanahan for the child, but I'm not one to hold a grudge.

I cannot comment on interview comity -- I never watched them before Tebow. Now I will not leave the set until I've seen the Tebow interview.
