A day after the Red Sox bowed out against the Rays, the Patriots resurrected their season, at least until their next lop-sided loss on national television. The Broncos, still without anything resembling a run defense, are back in full self-destruct mode following a hot start. That’s gotta be great news for all the other eminently unworthy teams in the AFC West. Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has got to be a new favorite among fans of both conjunctive and hyphenate names. A real two-way threat, that one.

If there was any point to watching that game, and I’m still not sure there was, it was the discovery that only in Gillette Stadium can you get blackface and purpleface in one place, in support of the same player no less.

I think we can all agree on the preferability of the Jay Cutler Diabetic Pout to Jay-C’s Smug Prick Face. Though he and Romo are going to have to pinky wrestle for hand injury supremacy.

Heh, what a cute shirt and WAIT WHO LET THE ASIAN WOMAN IN GILLETTE STADIUM!?

And you really hate to see this. For a player the caliber of Rodney Harrison to go down and without it being the result of a late hit away from the play. That’s just not right. The Tedy Bruschi omerta kiss to send him off was a touching scene.
