Posted on May 12, 2015

  Commentary by Jacqueline Bennett     ******************** UPDATE Disappointed in Robert Kraft's decision not to fight NFL sanctions reportedly absent hard evidence, and given their inequity. — newsandviewsjb (@newsandviewsjb) May 20, 2015 ******************** Statement from Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft via @patriots — newsandviewsjb (@newsandviewsjb) May 12, 2015     I will be ordering my “FREE BRADY” t-shirt later this morning but first I want to thank New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for his statement following the announcement of a four-game suspension for star quarterback Tom Brady. It is easy to be in someone’s corner in the good times but the measure of character and loyalty is standing with them through the tough times.   “Tom Brady has our…

If Tom Brady is Suspended – Boycott the Game

Posted on May 8, 2015

Commentary by Jacqueline Bennett    I believe in fair play. I believe in living by a code of honesty and personal integrity.   I also believe that a whole lot of envious folks have been gunning for Tom Brady. As the New England Patriots’ star quarterback Brady has led the NFL team to multiple Super Bowl victories.   According to an Associated Press report, speaking at Salem State University in Massachusetts yesterday, during a previously scheduled ‘question & answer’ session, Brady was quoted as saying, “As a human being, you care about what people think. I think as a public figure you learn not everyone is going to like you …. Good, bad or indifferent there are a lot of people who don’t…

Tremendous Response to “Remy’s Grinders” Fundraiser for Bigg Play

Posted on February 5, 2015

Article & Photos by Jacqueline Bennett   It was big for Bigg Play !   The sale of “Remy’s Grinders” on Super Bowl Sunday to benefit Bigg Play had a terrific response. Bigg Play is an organization based in Windham, Connecticut that raises money to send youth baseball teams abroad. This year marked the tenth anniversary of the annual grinder sales fundraiser.   According to Bigg Play President Bill Shea, an article posted on newsandviewsjb last week  – “Lengendary ‘Remy’s Grinders’ Reappear on Super Bowl Sundays” – gave the already popular grinder sales, a tremendous bounce. Before noon on February 1, when grinder pick-up was slated to begin, Bigg Play had already run out of meat and had to send out to restock. Rows and rows…

New England Patriots Win Super Bowl, Defeat Seahawks – From ‘Sea to Shining Sea’ We Had It Covered

Posted on February 2, 2015

By:Jacqueline Bennett   When the camera panned from a night view of Boston, Massachusetts to one of Seattle, Washington during the opening of the Super Bowl last evening as John Legend sang the lyrics “from sea to shining sea” in “America the Beautiful”, it really struck a chord. Super Bowl XLIX was especially exciting in my family with those of us living in New England as stalwart Patriots fans and my Seattle relatives huge Seahawks fans. No matter what, I thought to myself, our family was going to win because as the beautiful lyric goes – “from sea to shining sea” – we had it covered.   If both teams could have won, I would have been pleased. That said, since only one could bring…

New England Patriots-Seattle Seahawks Potential Super Bowl Bout Heats Up East/West Coast Family Rivalry

Posted on January 13, 2015

Write-up by Jacqueline Bennett   Wins by the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs last weekend have potentially positioned the professional football teams to face each other in a Super Bowl bout, heating up a friendly – albeit serious – East/West Coast rivalry in my family, Bennett/Larned versus Landeck.   Backing the Seahawks are Deb, Wayne, Katie, Nate, Dan, Sofia and their teacup poodle Scooby-Doo. In the Patriot’s corner are Mike, Melane, their German Shepard Polaris, Dixie, Candy and I.     The possible match-up between the northeastern and northwestern competitors is an exciting prospect.   “We’ll win hands down – if they can’t get to Brady,” said Dixie on January 12.   That is a big ‘if’ given the season’s history where Brady’s defenders…
