The Patriots Dynasty Looks Stronger Than Ever

The Patriots defeat the Chiefs in an overtime thriller to go to their third straight Super Bowl.


Last Sunday Tom Brady and the New England Patriots defeated the Kansas City Chiefs to advance to their third straight Super Bowl and Brady's ninth overall. The Patriots were a team all season condemned by the media, and some select individuals even tried to hop on the train of Brady approaching the cliff. But if the game on Sunday showed us anything it was that the Patriots reign of terror across America is nowhere near to being over.

Just thinking back to the performances by the teams biggest players and then compare them to where they are now is like night and day. Rob Gronkowski who missed multiple games this season because of a lingering back injury and really didn't look like himself throughout the regular season. Fast forward to the postseason, he has a massive impact in the run game throwing key blocks which lead to big plays for running back Sony Michel and others. Then in the AFC championship, Gronk turned back the clock becoming a big target for the team. The tight end caught six balls for 76 yards and two huge third-down conversions which both lead to touchdowns.

Then there's Julian Edelman who was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's PED rules. No one even mentions him as an elite target anymore but still proceeded to shred the Chiefs on third-down. It was almost sickening as a Patriots fan to see him keep moving the chains on the sorry Chiefs defense.

Oh, but let's not forget about the stories of Brady and Bill Belichick butting heads and not getting along at all. I believe that coach Belichick even referred to the story as "gossip." That clickbait is now dead and gone and good riddance.

And for the people who still believe that the Patriots just got "lucky" or they "caught lightning in a bottle and will fall off next year" let me tell ya. Next season the Patriots will have 12 picks in the NFL draft! Whether they spend all of the picks to get younger and deeper at key positions(that'd be a little surprising) or use them in trades for proven players (there we go) New England will be set up for success for years to come. I'll wrap this up by quoting former New England Patriots quarterback and current Patriots radio color commentator Scott Zolak.

"Americas worst nightmare is back."

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
