The Crimson Tide officially made it past the bar set a year ago by its predecessors.

With the 33-14 win over host Taunton High School on Friday, the Crimson Tide advanced past the first round of the MIAA playoffs setting up a quarterfinal meeting with Central Catholic on Friday, November 11 (7PM) at Lawrence Stadium.

A year ago, the Tide (8-1) couldn’t make it past the Round of 16, but senior quarterback Karmarri Ellerbe made sure to make the most of his second postseason start to help push the team over the top, rushing for two touchdowns and throwing for another on a 62-yard strike to Giacobbe Ward in the first half.

Brady faces a new reality

It would appear that Tom Brady’s magical world, a place where all his dreams came true, is beginning to disintegrate.

The ageless wonder, pro football’s GOAT, is heading in a direction we cannot imagine.

He is getting divorced. If you’ve never been divorced and if you think celebrities private lives don’t matter, well, they do.

Getting divorced is messy business and it doesn’t matter if you are a blue collar working class stiff or a multi-millionaire handsome football player married to one of the world’s most stunning women.

When you choose football over your wife and kids at the age of 45, you suffer when your wife tells you she wants a divorce. Or maybe it was Brady who told Giselle he wants a divorce.

The Patriots, again

The Patriots lost convincingly.

What to make of it?

First, we would remind Pats fans and our readers that the NFL season is a long run. Nothing is settled for sure after three games. What is certain is this – the Pats don’t presently have their act together.

Too many mistakes. Too many interceptions and turnovers and penalties.

And now Mc Jones is a question mark after hopping off the field like a rabbit with a sprained ankle.

If you listen to talk radio, there was a great discussion about what was wrong with this last Pat’s game.

The Patriots

The Patriots are off to a bad start.

The 20-7 opening loss was drudgery to watch. We can only imagine what awaits the Pats as the season moves into week two.

Meanwhile, Tom Brady, the GOAT, won his opener convincingly. He remains looking like a stud and a player capable of heading into the Super Bowl again.

Which brings to mind once again – how did the Krafts let Brady get away.
