Yup, Tom Brady was found guilty of cheating by the NFL. Wait, that's not what you heard?  Let's look at the facts.

Patriots employees admitting deflation.

Patriots ownership accepted blame and took penalty.

Brady went to the commish and instead of saying, "I didn't do it," in an affirmative defense, he said you can't prove anything.

Does that sound like a hero to you? Or more like a politician?

Take the fine, sit the 4 games and shut your mouth Tom, because the more you bring this up, the more guilty you look.

Cowboy fans can now celebrate as they will beat the Patriots!

or will they...

and I'm trying to figure out where the wins / losses in the Texas Tech schedule will fit.

Where will be the game that the Red Raiders SHOCK THE WORLD...

and which game will they overlook.

Time is getting closer to football season and I know I shouldn't overlook the summer, but it is in my bones. As an alumni, my heart beats a little faster when fall hits the campus of Texas Tech.

Are you ready for football season yet?

UPDATE:  Once I posted this, I got what I expected... silence.  Shame on you anonymous complainers.

I've held my words these last couple of days. I've tried to be the better man.

But in the immortal words of Popeye... "That's all I can stands, cuz I can't stands n'more"

Stop complaining people. Yup, I said it. If you have a problem with something, don't complain, offer to help. 

I have been told of several people who would like to complain about the 4th on Broadway parade, street fair and fireworks today. I would like to reserve this place for such bitching.

I will take the comments and requests up to the 4th on Broadway Committee when we next meet.

Please remember the following: 4oB is volunteer driven. most, if not all of the problems that you may have experienced were due to the errors of other individuals and not of 4oB.

I will accept all flames here.

I accept them and then will reply to your flame with an invitation to be a volunteer next year.

My wife and I will be co-chairing the parade next year and unlike the under 33 days I had to prepare with no previous experience with a week taken away, since i was out of town getting my teenage kids, we will spend the next year trying to make the parade even better.

Please have the guts not to leave anonymous emails and messages at my work unlike some people who have done so since Saturday.

Have the guts to sign your name to your complaints, then help us make it better next year.

I believe in the volunteers and in our city! Do you have the fortitude to back up your words? I do, will you?

I have the guts to be proud of the volunteers of 4th on Broadway cause they were too few.  I have the guts to say that a bunch of people cussed my wife out because she told them to back up and they didn't.

Some people will say that "parade marshalls" will stop people from coming onto the road.

I have a better idea, let's try this out for size. Parents should take responsibility for their children instead of letting them run out into the streets.  People hate change, but we as a city need to change.

How about one suggestion, that I heard, no candy throwing at all?  Or would people complain about that too?

I love this city so much, but people complaining about the parade are the reason why this city can't have nice things.

You want to complain... down below is where you do it.

This is my opinion and not of Alpha Media, our sponsors, 4th on Broadway or of anyone else but me.
