WINNERS – Super Bowl LIII

Once again, the New England Patriots are champions, grinding to win Super Bowl LIII 13-3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta — and launching Tom Brady and Bill Belichick into a different stratosphere.

They have now won six Super Bowls together, extending their record for the most by a head coach and starting quarterback combination. With the win, the Patriots are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl titles in NFL history.

Brady now has won more Super Bowls than any other player in history, surpassing Pro Football Hall of Famer Charles Haley (five).

Brady was 21-for-35 passing for 262 yards, and most of those yards went to wide receiver Julian Edelman, who is boosting his hall-of-fame resume. Edelman — who was named the game’s MVP — had 10 catches for 141 yards. In addition to already having the second-most receptions in postseason history, he’s now second all time in postseason receiving yards. He trails just the legendary Jerry Rice in both categories.

Edelman, who in his college days was a quarterback at Kent State, was drafted by New England in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL draft. He is the seventh wide receiver to be named Super Bowl MVP.

War Of The Worlds

My 4th trip to see the “big” show (I don’t count the mini version in London) and it did not disappoint.

No weeak links this time like Marti Pellows terrible performance and apart from a small wardrobe malfunction with Carrie Hope Fletchers dress it appeared to go okay although the ghost levitation was missing but I read this had not worked on opening night so maybe it was dropped from the show.

Hopefully it will not be the last time I see the show.

Just seen my favourite comedian Dave Gorman at Portsmouth Guildhall.

Always difficult to describe a Dave Gorman show to anyone who hasn’t seen him as there are no jokes as such (apart from the best giraffe joke ever) more observations on life given as a PowerPoint presentation.

His unique style and for me the lack of political bias is what makes him the best comedian around.

Support act of Nick Doody was also very good.

Proud to say I now have a Daughter-in-law.

My son got married today at Kirby Hall in Corby which is a wonderful setting, an old building with beautiful grounds and luckily the weather was perfect.  A very enjoyable day all round and a reception which allowed me to spend some time with my family and even the ex-wife, well you can’t have everything.

I did drink a little in excess but as my hotel was just across the road it wasn’t a problem, I even managed to enter the door code successfully.

I wish my son and my new daughter-in-law all the best.

Welcome to the family Stef

No it’s not mine, but this site has now been online, in its current form, for three years!

A new title!

I stopped using “Only The Blue Side” and went with “The Blue Front”. To be honest not really happy with that either.

Pictures went from the Home page to replaced by icons

Also on that very first day I announced the arrival of Kyle Bennett and Kal Naismith to Portsmouth and a year later (2016) I had indicated that Kal Naismith had been a disappointment. A year makes a lot of difference and Naismith went on to be one of our best players during the League 2 Championship season. Three years on and now neither are at Portsmouth. Bennett left early in the season and Naismith decided to leave at the end.

The Blog also had the same name change and as can be seen at least a third change on the “On This Day” layout, one day I will finish that

So the BBC have finally done it and thrown 50 years of tradition out of the window and cast a female Doctor.

Political correctness wins again.

I’m sure Jodie Whittaker is a fine actress but she is NOT the Doctor

The end of watching it for me.
