Dedicated to the HATRED of all things trOJan


Dead Woods — Ex-trojan Robert Woods and his Rams fail to get in the end zone, tying the lowest score EVER in a Super Bowl, as Bruin Matthew Slater and his Patriots take the Title 13-3

Like most everyone outside of Boston, I am tired of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick teaming up to win Super Bowl Championships. But I never get tired of ex-trojans losing big games, and Bruins earning Rings, and that’s what happened on Sunday, when the Brady/Belichick Dynasty added another Title to their legacy, with New England’s 13-3 victory over the Rams.

The Patriots outplayed the Rams on Offense, Defense, and Special Teams, but the score was still 3-3 in the 4th Quarter, when Brady engineered the game’s only TD drive. After an ensuing Jared Goff Interception, the Pats added a Field Goal to make it 13-3 with about a minute left, basically icing the game.

The Rams’ Offense, “led” by ex-trojan Wide Receiver Robert Woods, set Super Bowl records for futility, including 8 straight drives ending in a Punt. Woods was targeted 10 times, but 5 of those were failures, including an early DROP by Woods.

While the ex-trojan was a big part of the worst Offense in Super Bowl History, the Bruin — Matthew Slater — contributed to a stellar NE Special Teams that was instrumental in the win. In the 3rd Quarter, Slater downed a Punt at the L.A. 2-yard line, and later delivered a crushing tackle on another NE Punt, dropping the Returner for a 1-yard loss. The Special Teams efforts helped keep the Rams at bay all day, and the Patriots’ Defense did the rest, adding up to a deserved victory, which culminated in Slater getting his THIRD Championship in the NFL.

Speaking of Bruin Champions, here are 25 more pics of the UCLA Spirit Squad, taken on Sunday before the big game, at the UCLA Women’s Basketball game versus Washington, where the Huskies were blown out 76-60.
