…a few notes and observations as another frenetic work week begins.

The headline says it all. Well that was quite a game, but I’m glad I didn’t watch it – I would have had a heart attack. I knew something bad was going down in the first half because there were Super Bowl parties going on all around us and the air was filled with shouts of glee. Not so much in the second half. Now I know why…

But a huge congrats to the Pats – it’s great to live in an area where they are so hated and to see them turn in such a momentous achievement. And it was great to see NFL commish Roger Goodell booed so loudly by the fans. You could just tell by the way he congratulated Brady that he’s a total asshole.

Beware the killer rabbit!

Perhaps miracles do happen. You just have to believe, I guess.

Some great images from the golden era of air travel. Posted because I know my Auntie Marge would love it.

Just one more example why Chelsea Clinton is out of her league pretending to be a “playa” like her mom and dad.

Another reason why Phil Mickelson is my favorite golfer.

And yet another, all in the same round! The guy is positively fearless.

…but let no one kid you, for every Phil Mickelson there is also the other side of the coin. Golf can be a cruel mistress.

Hard to believe Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours was released 40 years ago this week. I never bought into the hype of it being a great album, although it’s still one of the biggest sellers of all-time. In my view its follow-up, Tusk, was much more interesting.

One final comment about Tiger Woods’ disastrous (and, as it turns out, ill-advised) choice of including a trip to Dubai in his PGA Tour “comeback”. It’s obvious he was only there because of the dough-re-mi he was being paid to show up, because it’s obvious his game didn’t show up there with him. And it had nothing to do with slow greens. He can whine all he wants – there’s never been a bigger whiner than Woods – but the sad truth is that he played like crap and looked old and damaged while doing it. You really have to wonder if we’re really ever going to see him teeing it up on a regular basis ever again.
