Tom Brady Throws for Patriots, MNF Passing Record: New England 38, Miami 24

This is why we get so unnaturally excited about football isn’t it? A new Monday Night Football and New England Patriots franchise record for passing yards  and Tom Brady goes 32-48 for 517! 4 TDs 1 INT, 121.6 passer rating.

And there’s still another game left to be played tonight!

Remember that 11 minute drive to nowhere while begin down 2+ scores at the time in the second half of their postseason loss to the New York Jets? A semi-retarded chimpanzee would find that debacle in idiocy mind-numbing and frustrating. Hopefully, Brady and the Boys can get the offense working much faster this fall.

Illinois Takes Down Oakland in Weird, Wild Fashion

It took finding out there was a women’s basketball in play for the first eight minutes of the game to get the Illini shooting a little.

“Our kids said something right away, but I was like, ‘You guys are just missing shots, shut up and play,'” Illinois head coach Bruce Weber said after the game. “I kept saying, they’re scoring, it can’t be too bad of a ball!”

And though the Illini went on to trail by as much as nine points in the second half, they immediately reeled off an 18-0 run and were able to rally for a 74-63 win over a VERY game Oakland Golden Grizzlies squad. [Read more…]
