Although it KILLS me to go against Tom Brady, I must go with Patrick Mahomes because much like Eli Manning, he’s unpredictable and plays outside the box

We put the query to our pool of 1,284 friends, family, employees, coworkers, neighbors, and everyone else who participated in the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award and here is what they’ve said: 641 are betting on the Kansas City Chiefs and 643 are going with Tampa Bay. Everyone in the pool has put in $25 to make a pot of $32,100. We went by scores and whoever comes the closest will win the pot.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 639

I predict Kansas City will beat Tampa Bay today by a final score of 48-45

Honolulu, HI 96782, 02-07-2021 Sunday:  Today is the day, Super Bowl LV, one of the biggest games in the history of the sport.  We have the current reigning champions in the Kansas City Chiefs going to Tampa Bay to play Tom Brady’s Buccaneers.  I am telling you common sense would say go with KC because Patrick Mahomes is crazy good but when Tom Brady is in the mix, never say never– especially when he is on the verge of making history by winning another ring playing for a different team and in a different conference.  I mean, wow and were it not for COVID-19, we would be doing landmark business today but sadly will be home watching the game.     

The Tom Brady-led New England Patriots lost three Super Bowls out of nine appearances- two to the New York Giants (XLII and XLVI) and one to the Philadelphia Eagles (LII).  They almost lost one to the Atlanta Falcons (LI) but managed to overcome a huge deficit in that wild game and won one of the all-time great Super Bowl shootouts. 

The two that the Brady-led Patriots lost were matchups in which, the Patriots should have won- especially the second meeting- but for some reason known ONLY to God, Eli Manning beat him and his team BOTH times. 

While I am not saying that Eli Manning is like Patrick Mahomes or that Patrick Mahomes is like Eli Manning, I think when Brady goes up against an off-the-wall QB like Eli Manning was in his prime, he has problems.  Eli Manning was able to win two wild games and I suspect that if I were laying money down for today’s game, I would put it on Mahomes as that kid is crazy good. 

The Super Bowl that Tom Brady and the Patriots lost to the Eagles was to a team that unlike the Atlanta Falcons was NOT content to rest on a big lead it worked at acquiring from the get-go but kept on pushing and pushing and pushing until the final play of the game.  Nick Foles did what Matt Ryan could not do and that was to continue having faith in his and his team mates’ abilities to continue pushing for points every time they possessed the ball.

Even more amazing is that Nick Foles was the backup quarterback and should not even have been in the game had not the starter been injured and out of the running.  Neither before nor since has Foles had the same kind of success he had in the game but on that day, he outplayed one of the all-time greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. 

While no one knows what the outcome will be today, I am going to go with Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bucs.  I know I am most likely making the mistake of my life because Brady- with an opportunity to do something no other quarterback in the history of the game has ever pulled off- to win rings in two different conferences and with two different teams- will rise to the occasion to be sure.

I guess what I am gambling on is the fact that Patrick Mahomes is unpredictable as is his coach Andy Reid.  Coach Reid faced the Patriots long ago in Super Bowl XXXIX when he coached the Eagles and Donovan McNab was his quarterback.  In that game, the Patriots won by just a field goal but it’s clear that had not McNab run out of steam in the second half, they might have won that one.  Ah, well, hindsight being what it is, we have to look at things as they presently are and I am sure Coach Reid wants to beat Brady no matter what team for which he’s playing.[i]

We put the query to our pool of 1,284 friends, family, employees, coworkers, neighbors, and everyone else who participated in the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award and here is what they’ve said: 641 are betting on the Kansas City Chiefs and 643 are going with Tampa Bay.  Everyone in the pool has put in $25 to make a pot of $32,100.  We went by scores and whoever comes the closest will win the pot. 

Everyone has given us final scores, even with Kansas City or Tampa Bay at the top.  We have compiled them and we will see whoever comes the closest.  Other than that, we aren’t going to say much as we don’t want the IRS to come snooping around- and you wonder WHY we write with assumed names.

Friends, we will meet again.  Have a great next six months and we shall see what we shall see  Aloha.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs. 

That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born.  I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career. 

Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu.  My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry.

We continue offering CDs today by the greatest San Francisco band of all time, the Jefferson Airplane.  The band’s twenty-second album, “At the Family Dog Ballroom 09/1969,” hit record store shelves on September 02, 2008 and was another historical live recording from out of the vaults.  This album is a great CD and it featured the band back at home from their lengthy 1969 Tour of the United States for a fleeting time.  Later in the year, they would appear at the infamous Altamont Concert with the Rolling Stones and other San Francisco/California bands.  We urge you to visit the Amazon.com website, so you can pick it up at the price that is perfect for YOU.

ENDNOTES:


[i] I will say this: I have considered that we could also have a ‘set up’ meaning like the great boxing matches of old, we could see the Tampa Bay Bucs beat the Chiefs today which would set up a rematch next year if both teams return to the top of the league for a rematch in Super Bowl LVI.  The stakes would be higher, the money spent on betting even more massive, sort of like the classic heavyweight matches between ‘Smokin’ Joe’ Frazier and Muhammad Ali.  It’s almost as if the outcomes are ‘arranged’ for maximum entertainment and monetary value although I do hope that this is not the case.  Still, can you imagine such an event if the Bucs should win this time around and both teams fight to the top of the heap in the 2021-22 NFL Season?  Whoa.

    1. Hey, it’s the Super Bowl, we had to mention it especially when we’re betting money on it. I want to win the $32,500 pot!

      1. Oh, yeah, GameStop- the LITTLE GUY AND GAL wins BIG. Question is, will the Existing Order permit things such as that to continue? Can’t have the peons doing well, now can we?
