We have come to praise the Patriots defense.

It seemed like the perfect place to watch Game 7.

For Mike Lowell and his wife, Bertha, the New York City bar resided just a few blocks from the hospital where he would be undergoing surgery the next day.



You guys worried about Tom Brady yet? I'm starting to get there.
