Zak DeOssie represents NE prep school football and Phillips Andover with two Super Bowls rings

While Tom Brady is looking forward to another offseason of whizzing down water slides in Mexico, Zak DeOssie will be receiving his second Super Bowl ring as a member of the New Your Giants.

DeOssie attended Phillips Academy Andover in Massachusetts where he was named to the All-New England Prep Team. He was the football team captain his senior year and captained the basketball team his senior season.

DeOssie then went on to Brown University, where he was a two-time I-AA All-American and was twice among the finalists for the Buck Buchanan Award, which goes to the nation’s top FCS defensive player. As a senior in 2006, was a First-team All-America by The NFL Draft Report, earning 3rd-team honors from the Associated Press.

After he  became the first player in Brown’s history to be invited to NFL Combine in 2007 and was the only Ivy league player invited that season, DeOssie scored a 24 on the Wonderlic test, which is an average score (I looked up the highest score ever, and it was a perfect 50 by Pat McInally of Harvard; Ryan Fitzpatrick of Harvard scored a 49).

At least there were two New England prep school grads on the Giants (DeOssie and Victor Cruz). That made the loss a little easier to swallow. Congrats to the Giants.

Hands down the best Super Bowl commercial ever

Everybody is talking about the Super Bowl commercials this year, and what commercial will be the best (please no more commercials with babies talking about stock trading).

To me, this is the BEST Super Bowl commercial of all time. A free Twines & Vines wristband to the first person who can pick the movie line quoted by Terry Tate (hint: he is talking to Richard).

Just make sure that you like Twines & Vines on Facebook, post your answer under the post and then email me your name and address. Send the email to theboss@twinesandvines.com

Getting Super Bowl Fever, or I Wanna Gronk!

The Giants may have prep school legends Eli Manning (Isidore Newman Prep), and Victor Cruz (Bridgton Academy), but the Patriots have Gronk. If his is close to 100%, he’s good for two touchdowns and some epic spikes.

54 year old woman to perform at Superbowl. Wait, what?

So Madonna will be performing next Sunday night. That is pretty gross. She must be somebody’s grandmother by now, but she is out there acting like she is Britney Spears (back before Britney looked like she got that big KFC endorsement contract).

Here’s a good video with Madonna getting bounced around in the backseat of a BMW M5. It’s actually a lot better than that sounded. The video was directed by Guy Ritchie, who directed “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,” and “Snatch,” plus the Sherlock Holmes movies.
