Shuffle Off To Buffalo


Tommy


Jack and Tom


The Stadium formerly known as Rich


Postgame (I think it's safe to assume)

Tom, my friend and former coworker at the nuclear power plant is a picture freak. We went to a lot of Red Sox games and some Patriots games together. We went with Jack to Baltimore twice to see Sox at Camden Yards and flew up to Buffalo to see Pats take on the Bills. Doug Flutie now the backup to Tom Brady was Bills quarterback and we even managed to score a box of Flutie Flakes. I miss traveling with the guys for games. What I don't miss is posing for Tommy's embarrasing photo ops. Usually he stages them with very attractive women exept that he cuts you completely out of the shot and tends to focus in on the attributes. He sends me lots of pictures via email. Usually doing a core dump of his digital camera. The subjects are at times completely random: his son, his truck, a tree, waitress at a bar, hot chick at a bar, another hot chick at bar, etc.... I received a new batch today from their latest trip to Buffalo and a couple of shots from the 'hood. I thought I would share them because either I am feeling a tad nostalgic or the pictures are unusally good this time or like all things a little bit of both.

I hate the Pats.

I hate all teams that attempt to encompass an entire geographic region rather than a city. Bring back the Boston Patriots and their insane-looking Minuteman logo on their helmets!

I may be biased but I like the fact that New England is represented by the Pats...its the greatest geographic region in the country. Beaches, Mountains, 4 seasons, a sense of history you can taste...what else could you ask for? I don't like it when teams create these regions arbitrarily like the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim...

My friend Mark assured me that if he had a terminal disease, he would take Tom Brady out. I hate the Pats, too.

petty jealousies.... I still remember when they were the Patsies forever finally made it to a Super Bowl only to lose in '86 and again in '97 before the recent sucesses. and Brady will be MVP this year.
