The Patriots

The Pats lost their second in a row after winning 7 in a row.

The loss to the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro on Sunday was especially depressing for this single reason – the Pats aren’t yet there to take on a Super Bowl grade team.

The Bills, we do not believe, are Super Bowl material.

If the Pat’s can’t beat the Bills at home in a game that was never to be theirs, well, what is there to say about the Pat’s viability during the runup to the championship playoffs and the Super Bowl.

Merry Christmas to Mac Jones

Patriot’s quarterback Mac Jones is a Christmas present supreme for New England sports fans.

His presence allows the Pat’s to strive for another Super Bowl appearance, something we could not have imagined last year.

Mac Jones is in a position that former Red Sox great Carl Yastremski can well understand.

How so?

When Ted Williams retired, Yastremski took over the baseball legend’s left field position and number 3 place in the batting line-up.

Can you imagine replacing Ted Williams?

I can’t.

How do you replace who was arguably the greatest hitter in baseball history and the last player to bat over .400 – a record very likely never to be broken?

It is something easier said than done.

Yastremski’s first year was like Mac Jones first year.

After wrapping up the New England Regional Championship in November, the Everett Pop Warner Crimson Tide A-Team finished second at the National Tournament in Orlando on December 8.

Also competing in the National Tournament was Everett Pop Warner’s C-Team, which finished in fifth place overall in their respective division.

Led by instructor Nicole Bounopane, the Crimson Tide A-Team finished in second place and received a trophy as well as each girl being awarded a medal for the achievement.

“Typically Nationals is in Disney, but this year it had moved over to Universal, so we weren’t sure what to expect. It was definitely a different experience, but in the end, the girls enjoyed their team day at the parks and made lifelong memories with each other,” said Bounopane.

The 2021-2022 Crimson Tide and fourth-year Head Coach Stanley Chamblain are ready to hit the hardwood and vie for a championship.

The season officially tips-off on Friday, December 10 against longtime rival Cambridge Rindge & Latin at 7PM at Cambridge.

“This group of guys we have this year is tough,” said Chamblain, who led the Tide to a 7-2 record in a Covid-shortened season a year ago before being ousted in the Greater Boston League (GBL) title game.

“These guys we have now love to get after it. Defensively they aren’t going to breakdown and let up during games,” said Chamblain of his “defensive-minded” squad led by 4-year starter John Monexant.

With 9 returning seniors on the roster, including Roby Dormevil, James Monexant, and Cam Mohammed, Chamblain will have familiarity as he tries to lead the Tide to a championship.

Thanksgiving Day football at Veterans Memorial Stadium returned in a big way, capping a winning season for the Crimson Tide.

In the 44-14 victory over St. John’s Shrewsbury on Thanksgiving, the Tide showcased its depth with a full-fledged attack from start to finish.

Leading 21-0 by halftime, Everett got scores from five different players by the end of the game, including two apiece from seniors Jayden Clerveaux and Cam Mohamed.

Posting 93 points over their two-game win streak (beat Andover 49-21), the Tide (9-1) end the year hot.

“It’s a really strong way for our team to end the season. It really worked out for us on all three phases, said,” EHS Head Coach Robert DiLoreto. “We spread the ball on offense and played great on defense and special teams, it was a complete team effort. Everything really came together,” said DiLoreto.

The win was his first on Thanksgiving as head coach of Everett.
