Bill Belichick being interviewed by Armen Keteyian. Excellent interview. I’m so glad Coach Belichick is who he is. He’s not a Saint Dungy or a holy than thou Bill Parcells. He is who he is and to me that’s perfect. Thank you Bill for being a real Coach and you don’t have to be best friends with the media.

Great players go to the Pro Bowl. Great Teams go to the Super Bowl. Go Pats !!

Social Networking Sites privacyThe Internet is a powerful tool that has revolutionized virtually every aspect of our lives, including how we socialize. Today, there are an estimated 200 online social networking sites, the most popular being MySpace and Facebook. But while it can be fun and convenient to keep up with old friends and make new ones online, sharing too much personal information on these sites can be risky. This is especially true for young people, who may not realize that the information they post online could end up in the hands of harassers, cyberbullies, scam artists, child predators and other unscrupulous people.
