“Tough Times Don’t Last. Tough People Do.”

Only four short months ago we were watching the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots take on Pittsburgh in their season opener.  Now the playoffs are upon us and I can’t help but reflect back on this crazy season of ups and downs.

Hard to believe Lewis and Blount actually did play this season.  Many weeks ago.  And Edelman was on the field somewhere back in September and October, I think.  It will be good to see him back doing what he does so well tomorrow.

What I think is so cool about the Patriots is that each time a player went down, another player stepped up and did his best to fill in.  Shit, even Troy Brown was ready to suit up.  That’s true element of a “team”.

I have no idea what is going to happen tomorrow.  All I know is that there is a football game.  If the Patriots win, great.  We move on to yet another AFC Championship game.  If we lose, well, we lose.  It wouldn’t be the first time.  But we’d have nothing to be ashamed of if that happened.

I’ve ignored all the weird distractions from this week.  Bill, Gronk and Jones are all big boys.  They’ll figure things out.  We have the best kicker in the league on our side.  Even better we have the best damn quarterback of all time.

Although football season is so short it still seems so long during the tough times of injuries.  Luckily the people are tougher than the ailments.

I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!

Tell me what you think!
