Enjoy the big game with big flavor.
I know you're upset the Patriots aren't playing in the Super Bowl, but stop claiming you're going to skip the big game. You have to watch, or you aren't an American. Besides, now that your team isn't playing, you can relax and enjoy the party without having to worry about every play. Your blood pressure will rise because of all the snacks, not because of iffy calls by the refs. The best features of the Super Bowl, in order, are watching the commercials, eating party food, hanging out with friends (just don't talk while the commercials are playing), making ridiculous bets and actually watching the game. Unlike other media members, I'm not going to spoil the commercials for you, it's too late in the week for me to find you friends and I am …
A Ravens cheerleader has been making headlines for the reasons she says she was banned from cheering on Super Bowl Sunday.
The story of a Baltimore Ravens cheerleader who said she was disciplined for weight gain—and believes this is a reason she was left behind from the Super Bowl—has been making headlines across the country. Cheerleader Courtney Lenz said she thinks her team didn't take her to the Super Bowl was because she gained 1.6 pounds. Admittedly, her story has changed through the week: Yahoo Sports noted she first said the team was upset because she had chosen to retire at the end of the season. She later told Good Morning America she thought the decision was because of her weigh-in. The alleged snub led to supporters starting an online petition to reinstate her, The Huffington Post reported. The team has said they picked cheerleaders for the Super …

Norton screen printing business to produce up to 35,000 shirts.
You can’t get a much better advocate than ex-New England Patriot Jarvis Green. And that’s just who recommended ESP Solutions Inc., a screen print and embroidery facility in Norton, to print the “Perfect Payback” tee shirts being sold just in time for Super Bowl XLVI. ESP Solutions was contacted by Fan’s Only, a marketing company out of Maryland. They were recommended by Green to print the shirts, as they were the perfect candidate being in the Foxborough area. "We did a shirt for him [Green] three or four years ago," said Steve Holcomb of Fans Only, which is licensed with the NFL Association. "And apparently he has done some business here, and he said, 'these are the guys you need to talk to.'" And Holcomb is happy with the results. An …
Foxborough selectmen discussed reaching out to the board of selectmen in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
In what is the annual tradition of a "friendly bet" between government officials during championship games, this year's Super Bowl match up between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants proves no different. On the heels of Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's "friendly Super Bowl wager," Foxborough selectmen discussed reaching out to the board of selectmen in East Rutherford, New Jersey to place their own "choice bet." "Last time we were in the Super Bowl with the Giants, [we reached out] to the board in East Rutherford," said selectman Mark Sullivan. Board members recalled the last Super Bowl between the rival teams, making a "choice bet" to wager clam chowder on Foxborough's end and …

The Patriots hosted the New York Giants and lost the game, their chance for Super Bowl revenge and perhaps lost their way. Is this who they are?
The Patriots game on Sunday against the New York Giants can easily be described as a "team loss." Most teams will say you lose and win as a team, but none more so than the Patriots game against the New York Giants. It was a game that gave the Patriots a chance to rebound from a tough loss to the Steelers last week, and in a sense, gain some revenge on the Giants for ruining the Patriots hopes of a perfect season back in February 2008. The game didn't start out well for either team offensively. In fact, th Patriots and Giants both played poorly in the first half. The game was scoreless at halftime; tthe first time this has occurred so far in the 2011 NFL season. The second half was not much better for the Patriots and included fumbles…
