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.

Special to the Leader Herald

With first and second place finishes at the New England Regionals November 6, the Everett Crimson Tide Pop Warner Cheerleaders earned a trip to the Nationals Competition in Florida in Decemeber.

The competition will be taking place from December 4 -11 at Universal Studios, with the Crimson Tide scheduled to compete December 8.

Now Everett Pop Warner is calling on Everett residents for help raising the funds needed to send the girls to Nationals.

There’s approximately 50 athletes attending and EPW is looking to help cover the cost of rooming while at the competition, which is about $650 per cheerleader. This does not include airfare, food, or other travel expenses. Program staff have said no donation is too small, and every dollar will help.

Patriots looking good

Several weeks ago, we said with great zeal the Patriots were going nowhere with Cam Newton at quarterback.

We were right about that.

Mac Jones looks to be the real thing.

He is not Tom Brady, but then, there only is one GOAT.

Jones throws the ball like a rocket. He has pinpoint aim guided by great reflexes and he is able to stand in the pocket ala Brady and complete passes at a high level of success.
