Guarino The 10-year wait came to a merciful end last Sunday, as the New England Patriots are once again World Cham- pions following a heart stop- ping 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. The Patriots finally have their fourth Lombardi Tro- phy, and like their previous three championships, it took a full 60 minutes to deter- mine the winner. This time, however, the margin of victory was not provided by an Adam Vinatieri field goal, instead this win required a remarkable goal-line in- terception by unheralded defender Malcolm Butler, just when all hope of a victory appeared lost. In a game that will go down as one of the greatest and most exciting in Super Bowl history, the Patriots came back from a Super Bowl record 10-point fourth quarter deficit to vanquish "This is our fourth Super Bowl Championship in 14 years. The first one we won, I thought was pretty special because it happened in a unique time in our country, it meant a lot. I never thought another trophy could feel as special. But this one absolutely does! Every true Patriot fan understands this. I want to thank the coaching staff, the players, because we are all Patriots, and tonight, once again, the Patriots are World Championsl" -- Patriots Owner Robert Kraft The Butler did it:!:! the cocky defending cham- pions. "We got a good football team and these guys fight for 60 minutes," said an emo- tional Belichick post-game. "I'm so proud, I love these guys." Super Bowl XLIX was per- haps the most important game in the lives of Beli- chick and Quarterback Tom Brady, and they both acted like it. Belichick called a masterful game, keeping the running abilities of Sea- hawks Quarterback Russell Wilson in check. Wilson completed only 12 passes, and although hitting on some big plays downfield, he seldom looked comfortable in the pocket. Brady on the other hand, expertly dissected the "Legion of Boom," complet- ing a Super Bowl record 37 passes of regulation inflated footballs, for 328 yards and (Continued on Page 7) by Sal tani Warning on Soaring U.S. Debt President Obama's State of the Union address made it sound like it was "Happy Days are Here Again," but the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office at the same time told a different story with a dire warning. Government entitle- ments mostly ~naffordable, and crushing debt are condemning America to little, if any, economic growth in the foreseeable future. Obamacare, the Nation's Newest Entitlement? When it comes to subsidies on the health exchanges, the cost will more than triple from the present $32 billion to $106 billion by 2020. Federal Medicaid costs will also double in the same period. Despite it all, there will still be 30 million Ameri- cans uninsured. According to Betsy McCauhey, a great conser- vative commentator, some nine to ten million Americans are going to lose their employer pro- vided health insurance and wind up on Medicaid. "One out of every four Americans under 65 will be on health welfare." As McCaughey states, "The CBO report shows that entitlement reform is urgently needed. The best way to start is by not adding new ones."
