CEL-E-BRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON!

The Patriots Celebration Midfield Moments After Beating the Chargers 24-21

I honestly can’t believe how much bs has been thrown around about this celebration. THEY CELEBRATED TOO MUCH! I WAS DISRESPECTED! THE TEAM IS IMMATURE!

Who the hell cares!?

There’s a great article on ESPN.com regarding this incident, which really explains the situation well. I’ll concede the Patriots didn’t really need to celebrate after the game, but I think I made that clear in my last post. The fact of the matter is it happened after the game, and furthermore you cannot tell me the Chargers limited their communications with the Patriots all game to “hello fine sir, are you enjoying the weather?” Give me a break. Trash talk, disrespect, momma jokes, all of that is part of the on the field battle, and deal with it or else you’ll be left behind wondering what happened (LT).

You can read this article from the other side and hear their comments. Even they argue things weren’t as bad as indicated by the Chargers.

This post was sparked by one nugget I HAVE to share with you. San Diego Chargers Linebacker Shaun Phillips was quoted on ESPN this morning, saying:

“Every time I will play New England it will be a personal grudge,” Phillips said. “That was very classless. . . . When we went in and beat their head in New England (last season), blew them out (41-17), we did nothing but compliment them and say they were a good team. We would never disrespect a team like that. We have class, and that’s how classless individuals are. Shaun Phillips will have a grudge against them the rest of his career.”

Put a microphone in front of a meathead and this is what you get! God bless the press! I love how he went third person on our asses for the last sentence. Why bother? What was his motivation there? Maybe he has a manager, like a pro wrestler, and that was him speaking for Shaun. I wish I had a manager. It’d be a toss up between Bobby “The Brain” or some hot valet, like Miss Elizabeth in her prime.

I guess all I can really say to that is so what. Again, I can’t really stress it enough. This stuff happens ALL THE TIME in football- in sports, really. I bet the next time Shaun Phillips makes a big play, he will do something to celebrate it. Unfortunately for him, that won’t happen until next season. Oops.

Enough about the Chargers from me. Andrews may have some thoughts he’d like to share, but as of tomorrow we’re gonna go into full AFC title game mode. So Chargers fans, one last message before you head on out to the offseason: Stay Classy, San Diego. And thanks for stopping by.

    I’m a huge Colts fan, so I hate the Patriots (unless their winning will give us a home game). But I’m totally with you on this one. Trash talking and all that stuff is what makes this game so fun. I’m glad the Pats did that to spice things up a bit. Rivalries are great, so hopefully the Chargers will hold a grudge to last a lifetime. Go Colts!

    PS- Awesome signoff there.

    Hi Jeff,

    I’ve noticed you’ve pitched in over here recently… nice work. I think the comment you’re referring to about holding the grudge was said by Chargers linebacker Shaun Phillips, not Stephen Cooper. They brought it up on Sportscenter last night, and I was able to find it on Sports Frog today. I linked to it on my blog here:

    If what you heard was indeed Cooper, then it looks like the Chargers have a full team of blockheads, not just a few. Much like you, I believe it’s pathetic this issue is still coming up days after the game.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the correction, Dan. I’ll update the post, although that totally kills some of my jokes!

    I am not disagreeing with you, but this picture is a lot better then most you can find on google images.

    Sorry for the trouble….

    Why was my comment deleted? I guess it will be again? You shouldn’t be censoring people on this website, I just don’t like the pictures that have been on here recently, and I am expressing my dissinterest. I just wanted you to be knowledgable about my disrest, but you go censoring what I say. I would appreciate this not be done anymore. Go patriots!

    By the way, I actually do like the jokes and the new attitude of the website. I think its interesting, I was just trying to look out for my kids

    I don’t believe your post was censored, unless somebody just removed it from the spam section.

  9. Jeff says:

    I appreciate your opinions, but your demeanor when you express your displeasure in my choice of images is offensive to me. If you recall, in your last message you lectured and threatened me to block my site to “protect your children.” Right or wrong, you spoke down to me, and tried to bully me into doing what you want. You have a right to your opinion, but if you want to express it in those terms, I won’t engage you.

    I’m not going to preach to you or lecture you on how to raise your children, but I will warn you that you will find edgy photography and video on this site in the future. I refuse to put up pornography or anything like that, but what you see at the top of this post is extremely mild, and something I didn’t think twice about. For your sake, if you feel that this picture is going over the line, you may want to keep this site from your kids.

    Thank you for being a reader here and I hope to keep you, but I will not sacrifice creative license for censorship. The internet is one of the last frontiers free of censorship, and the blog community thrives because of it. If you can’t appreciate that, then I don’t believe you belong here.

    Very well said Jeff, now lets get back to patriots talk!!!
