Patriots News 2/5
Today is the big day: Super Bow XLVI. Now that the week of news frenzy
is coming to a close, all that is left is the game. The news wire has
been filled with behind-the-scenes stories of brides, newborns and so
Ines Gomez Mont, Mexican Reporter Who Proposed to Tom Brady at
Super Bowl XLll Media Day, Gives Birth to Triplets
Everyone knows that Media Day during Super Bowl week is always a
circus. Ines Gomez Mont caught some attention during the Super Bowl in
2007 by showing up in a wedding dress and shouting proposals to both
Eli Manning and Tom Brady, both player declined.
Ines was not present at this year's Media Day as she recently gave birth to triplets with her
husband Javier Mont. Seems like Ines has her own circus to
deal with at home.
Giants' Victor Cruz has a a special lucky charm
We found a story about a pizzeria delivering pies all the way from Long
Island for the Giants but their standout receiver Victor Cruz has his
own special lucky charm.
Cruz has asked his girlfriend, Elaina Watley
if she could bring his three-month old daughter, Kennedy to
Indianapolis for the big game. Although Kennedy won't be in the stadium
for the game, she will be in an Indianapolis hotel room with a sitter
dressed in her father's team colors.
Does anyone know the real Bill Belichick? Only his real
There's a lot of mystery surrounding Bill Belichick and pretty
everything about him. From his straightforward answers to every
question at every press conference. The media spends countless hours
trying to get into Belichick's brain to get just a glimpse of what his
closest friends see.
Dubbed in this article as the "man with two
lives", Belichick is known to come off as cold during the
season but to his friends, that side of Bill is unfamiliar. From his
love for the Grateful Dead and unexpected fascination with Harry
Potter, Belichick is described as "the essence of a friend". Prolific
sports figures such as Tony La Russa and Jim Brown were asked about
their friendship with Belichick. As well as family friends like
16-year-old Rob Ingraham, whose father attended college with Bill.
These interview paint a very different picture from the monotone Bill
Belichick that we all know.
Obama supporters are all for the Patriots, but who are
cheering for the Giants?
A Silicone Valley start-up conducted a survey of 205 people and asked
what their Super Bowl XLVI predictions were. With some data-crunching,
which included separating knowledgeable fans from those taking a wild
guess - all by voice response analysis - that the Patriots are set to
with by three points. This isn't really anything too riveting.
What was interesting is that the same group of people were then asked
who they were planning to vote in the next presidential election and as
it is explained, "Turns out, 75 percent of Obama supporters
believe the Patriots will win while 69 percent of the Republicans in
the group are betting on the Giants." So even though the
majority of the population will be watching the game, there will be
even more things to debate about.
Deion Branch and Wes Welker are the Patriots' go-to guys
Whether it be experience or just the fact that both Deion Branch and
Wes Welker know Tom Brady so well, it seems like these two guys have solidified
their role in the Patriots offense.
Welker has had a stellar season and Branch has been quietly effective.
While Branch has had the opportunity to win two Super Bowls before,
Welker has yet to gain such experience. Brady explained that Branch
"always shows up in the big games." Branch's competition on the team
has changed a lot since the first two Super Bowls as most of Brady's
passes have been thrown to tight ends. But like in true Patriot
fashion, Branch is just "happy to be back."
The proposing bride now has a family, Victor Cruz has his lucky charm,
Obama supporters cheer on the Patriots, Bill Belichick has a different
side and Wes Welker and Deion Branch prepare to give all that they can
in the Patriots' effort to win the Super Bowl. For the last
day of Super Bowl XLVI week, it still looks to be a news-filled one.
