Staggering 1 Million Go Dark During Brutal Nor’easter Storm

At least 900,000 customers in the Northeast are without electricity Thursday after being hit with a powerful storm.

The massive storm, which followed another devastating storm last week, pelted the area with heavy snow, ice and strong winds, downing power lines and leaving precarious road conditions.

The nor’easter may drop several more inches of snow in Massachusetts and northern New England into Thursday afternoon, but largely the storm did its worst Wednesday, leaving about 900,000 customers without power along the East Coast from Virginia to Maine. Continue reading

Bill Belichick Shows Up To Media Q&A With Mystery Black Eye

New England Patriots‘ head coach, Bill Belichick, showed up to his news conference Tuesday sporting a mystery black eye.

NE Patriots 1MIL Twitter Promotion Goes Horribly Wrong

Murphy’s law, it’s a bitch and apparently a racist too.. The NE Patriots had a simple plan to honor their one millionth follower on Twitter by firing off a custom shoutout tweet.. There was just one little problem, the fan’s twitter handle was “IHATENIGGERSS”

The Patriots were celebrating becoming the first NFL franchise to reach 1 million followers by superimposing the lucky fan’s username on the back of a Patriots’ jersey, but what should have been a euphoric milestone was soon sullied after the Twitterverse carefully hyphenated the nickname.

GOD HELP THEM!! Patriots Cut TEBOW..

I would not want to be the New England Patriots this season.. God only knows what might happen to the club after they spit in his eye (god’s eye,) by cutting QB TIM TEBOW!!!

Tebow saw a bit of playing time against the Giants Thursday, going 6-for-11 and throwing for 91 yards, but it was not enough to keep him on the roster. He would have been the second back-up quarterback to Tom Brady, after Ryan Mallett.

This year’s bowl blowout for Gronk and all his pals was no exception — he ran up a $9,000 tab.

How do you spend $9,000 on a party?

Well, start with $1,575 worth of Grey Goose vodka and $1,250 of PJ Rose champagne. Add in other assorted alcoholic beverages and some Red Bull, and then a $1,400 tip.

Of course, to Gronkowski, spending $9,000 is like a regular person spending $10. He did, after all, make $2.6 million last season. Source.

Billboards are cropping up all over Massachusetts already touting Sunday’s AFC Championship Game as Ray Lewis’ last! At least if you ask the folks in New England…

No one really knows if Sunday’s AFC title game will usher in the retirement of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, but as this billboard clearly demonstrates the people have spoken in a big way.

One user writes on a Ravens message board:

“I think it’s perfect. The Ravens will definitely party on that field while getting the Lamar Hunt Trophy. They will definitely party for Ray’s last game at that stadium. The Patriot fans are more than welcome to stick around and join in the celebration.”
