Super Bowl odds and ends: Stafford deserving, don't count out Tom Brady
This and that, tying up loose ends from the Super Bowl:
— Good to see Matthew Stafford get some recognition as Comeback Player of the Year. It’s not an award you aim to win, but it put him in the spotlight briefly which he deserved after a Pro Bowl snub.
— Not a huge Madonna fan, but thought she was awesome. In interviews on Friday and Saturday she was legitimately nervous about pulling everything off. No wonder, it was such a spectacle. Hope “the finger incident” doesn’t take away from such a tremendous show. It shouldn’t. She’s 53 and, as my friend Jennifer Hammond pointed out, after 30 year she’s still relevant.
— Don’t blame Gisele Bundchen for standing up for her hubby, Tom Brady. it’s not like she initiated it. She was provoked and it was the heat of the moment. Give the super model a break.
— Don’t count out Tom Brady. The Patriots are the favorites at 11-2 odds to win Super Bowl XLVII.
