Scott Brown picking Pats to win Super Bowl

BOSTON -- Sen. Scott Brown, who's picking the Patriots over the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5 -- I dont care if its by one or by 30, as long as they win -- feels for his colleagues in Washington who havent been able to enjoy the good fortunes of their local teams as the congressional contingent from New England has.Seven championships out of the last 10 years, and then throw in MLS, lacrosse, and the Revolution, theyre runners up the last three or four years, he said.
So we have a lot of things going on. Then you throw in the college season. Harvards doing great now. You got Boston College is in a rebuilding year. But weve got some good programs. Its a great place to live. And when Im in the United States capital, talking to a lot of the guys who have no clue what Im talking about or what Im going through. Theyre a little jealous. And its a good thing.Brown admitted he has several friendly wagers based on the Patriots Super Bowl fortunes.I do, he said with a laugh. It all involves beer.

NFL owners release statements on Trump comments

President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest. 

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally. 

He also lamented that football has become less violent.

“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.
