The First Shot


Good morning! The First Shot provides you with a healthy helping of links to the top Patriots-related stories around the internet to get your day started. Enjoy your breakfast, your coffee, and start the last day of the weekend off right with an early morning football fix. The links begin after the jump…

The news for football, especially Patriots news, is bone-dry right now. All of New England was focusing on the Bruins parade, so there was little-to-know Patriots articles on the web. Here’s a few:

  • Tom Brady as Superman? It’s possible…
  • In a recent edition of Patriots Football Weekly, the staff compared the play and physical make-up of the Patriots’ 2011 draft picks to current NFL player. ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss takes a look at those comparisons and comes up with his own.
  • Bill Belichick offered the Bruins some congratulatory remarks on Twitter, focusing on “TEAM” (surprised?). You can see his remarks HERE.
  • If you missed the aforementioned Bruins Stanley Cup parade, NESN.com has some good video footage posted of the parade, which you can see HERE.

Lastly, I’d like to wish all of the male readers of this page who have children a Happy Fathers’ Day!
