PAUL JEIFFKO 217 W COTA ST SHELTON WA 98584-2263 THE ITALIAN-AMERICAN VoIcE OF MASSACHUSETTS .-----I (Fornlerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 121 - NO. 6 BOSTON, MASSACHUSE'I-I'S, FEBRUARY 10, 2017 $.35 A COPY # New England Patriots Bask in the Glow of a Grateful Nation by Jeanne Brady Two days after dangling their fans over a Super Bowl abyss, only to snatch us back at the last joyful moment, the New England Patriots returned to Boston to celebrate with Patriot Nation during what has become a regular ritual in these parts, a Duck Boat Parade through the streets of Boston. But only Patri- ots fans get to prove their mettle equal to their team, coming out in the worst weather of the year. No pleasant, sunny outings for Patriots fans! But like the postal service, neither rain, nor sleet, nor show (and we had all of itl) could keep the faithful from the streets of Boston and City Hall Plaza. About a million people came out according to a Boston Police Department estimate (was this bigger than the inaugura- tion crowd? Probably not, no angry tweet...}. The fans were treated to a lively display of smil- ing, shouting, and dancing play- ers, coaches, team personnel, and their families. Tom Brady's son Benny had a particularly good time, sitting atop his dad's duck boat and "dabbing" enthu- siastically to the party music. After a bit of a late start, the parade wended its way slowly from the Prudential to City Hall, where the Patriot entourage disembarked with all five Super Bowl trophies and made their way up to the balcony at City Hall to address the crowd. Most. of the "addresses" consisted of shouting out "Five,"One More," "We Want Six," "James White" (who might have snagged MVP honors if not for Tom Terrific's heroics) and, from Belichick, "No Days OFF!!!" This last was a little odd, as pretty much every- one there was taking a day off. .Rumor has it that most of his team is for once defying him and enjoying some much-needed va- cation -- hopefully in someplace dry and warm! P.S. Guess who is favored to win Super Bowl LII??? This "Never Trump" Writer Gotta Be Kidding I read a letter to the editor in the over-priced Boston Globe last week from some "Never Trump" guy from Medford of all places. He was criticizing why the major networks interrupted, I guess, his favorite programs to air President Trump announcing his nominee for Supreme Court in primetime "as if he were crowning a reality show winner.., was distasteful... Regurgitation of every gilded spectacle is propaganda, not journalism." Great quote, wasn't it NOT? Is This Bud for You or Me Anymore? Anheuser-Busch revealed its Super Bowl commercial celebrating immigrant founder Adolphus Busch in what can only be viewed as another "Never Trump" moment. Titled "Born the Hard Way," a 60-second TV ad only adds fuel to the "Never Trump" antics out in America at the moment. Set in the 1800s, the spot depicts Busch's struggle to make it in St. Louis -- now Bud's headquarters -- to create a new kind of beer. It ends up meeting Eberhard Anheuser at a bar. The campaign will continue through 2017 and will celebrate people who "live life on their own terms." It adds that "Budweiser believes freedom and the pursuit of the American dream are nothing without ambition" and "the story is one of commitment, passion and never giving up or backing down."
