Tom Brady is the best. Pure and simple. I was wrong in my Super Bowl prediction in a big way. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! I thought youth would win out over age. After all, how many 43 year-old quarterbacks win Super Bowls? One does.
Brady and Tampa Bay outplayed the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday nine different ways. From an excellent defensive game plan produced by DC Todd Bowles to perfect execution by Brady-to-(Rob) Gronkowski.
There is no other way to put it, except to admit we are watching the greatest.
The Kansas City Chiefs will win Super Bowl LV. There. I wrote it. I did not come to this prediction easily. Tom Brady is a formidable quarterback, even at 43. But KC has the talent to stop this dream run for Brady, Gronkowski and the Bucs.
In the video I go into more detail why the Chiefs will repeat.
You Tube has become a treasure trove for Boston Red Sox fans, especially those who remember the Red Sox of the 1960s. A search through You Tube will reveal numerous segments of old Red Sox telecasts. You can hear Ken Coleman, Ned Martin and Mel Parnell describing the action.
There are several facets I find fascinating about the telecasts, including how technologically advanced the coverage was for the 1960s. By this time, instant replay had become a regular part of the telecasts and camera placement throughout the ballpark was more than adequate.
Below is a segment of a 1969 game, as the Red Sox hosted the Seattle Pilots. That in itself is a story because ’69 was the only season the Pilots existed, before moving to Milwaukee. During this clip, you will note Tommy Harper of the Pilots was caught stealing third base. Harper would later go on to play for the Red Sox. Arguing the “out” call was third base coach Frank Crosetti. Yes, that is the same Crosetti, who won all those World Series rings with the New York Yankees, as a player and coach.
After spending decades with the Yankees, Crosetti, from California, wanted to return closer to home and took the job with the expansion Pilots. When the club moved on, Crosetti called it a career, although he regularly visited the Yankees, when they played in Oakland. Enjoy!
