Patriots vs. Giants Simulcast!

There is a roar full of cheer coming from every household in Worcester, Mass-a-two-sticks from the latest news that the fans in this city will actually be able to watch the home team on television. Anyone with a Charter Communications cable subscription was going to be blacked out for Saturday nights game against the Giants. That was Not a good thing when it comes to all of the die hard New England Patriots fans in the second largest city in the region.

Over at the Washington Post they have the latest news on where to tune in for the last game of the season to see if the Pat’s can win a perfect season…

Pats-Giants Game to be Simulcast on NBC, CBS

The Saturday night game in which the New England Patriots will be trying to set an NFL record by finishing the regular season with an undefeated record will be simulcast on CBS and NBC, the NFL has just announced.

Originally the 8:15 p.m. game against the Giants in East Rutherford, N.J., was scheduled to be carried only on the NFL Network. Because of a dispute with Time Warner and Comcast, that network is available in fewer than 40 percent of the nation's homes that have televisions.

"We have taken this extraordinary step because it is in the best interest of our fans," Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a written statement. "What we have seen for the past year is a very strong consumer demand for NFL Network. We appreciate CBS and NBC delivering the NFL Network telecast on Saturday night to the broad audience that deserves to see this potentially historic game. Our commitment to the NFL Network is stronger than ever."

This will be the first three-network simulcast in NFL history and is the first simulcast of any kind for the NFL since Super Bowl I (between the AFL and NFL) on CBS and NBC on Jan. 15, 1967.

Thank you dear God in heaven, thank you Senator Kerry, thank you Bob Kraft Macaroni and Cheese… Sorry, I was in deep prayer there. This blackout was a very large, huge, even gigantic problem for all of the fans that have been supporting the Patriots. Having the Pat’s last game of the season blocked on your own television is like telling a crack or heroine addict not to touch your stash and locking it up in a glass case right in front of them.

I don’t care how the NFL Network and NBC and CBS worked out this deal, I’m freaking loving it! I have to run. I have to find five Tom Brady OFFICIAL NFL shirts for a five year old, a seven year old, a ten year old, a twelve year old and a seventeen year old girl. Papamoka is having a mega football party at his house this Saturday and my five girls and I are watching it right here at home. WoooooHOOOOO!

Speaking of excitement. This is for football enthusiast fans of the Patriots. Today they also announced that they have to lay down new sod in the end zones at Gillette Stadium. Apparently, there was to much MOSS IN IT!!!



Back to my prayers, thank you for Tom Brady, thank you for Bill Belichick, thank you for Randy Moss and Teddy Bruschi #54…
