Apparently, the New England Patriots are no longer just an NFL team. They constitute a national emergency:

In an unprecedented decision, the league announced Wednesday that CBS and NBC -- and not just NFL Network -- will air Saturday night's finale between the Patriots and New York Giants in a three-way simulcast...

On Christmas Eve, Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) delivered a letter to Goodell suggesting the NFL consider using the "flex schedule" -- a progamming device that allows the league to change kickoff times to give NBC the best matchups for its Sunday night broadcasts.

"Electing to air the game on NBC would ensure that every television in America has access to such a historic game," Kerry wrote.

Wow. I am actually shedding real tears. You know, if John Kerry demonstrated this sort of political expediency and bully-pulpit efficiency back in 2004 he would be president now...


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
