The New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints held a joint practice yesterday in preparation for Thursday’s preseason game, and received a visit from a special guest.

Jon Bon Jovi, a good friend of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and lead singer of the aptly titled band ‘Bon Jovi,’ made an appearance and chatted with Belichick and Saints head coach Sean Payton.

No, your eyes do not deceive you. That is a smile on the face of Bill Belichick, which is to my knowledge the first piece of photographic evidence revealing the Patriots head coach does feel emotion.

According to Payton, it was during a Bon Jovi concert in Dallas that Saints GM Mickey Loomis called and offered him the Saints head coaching job, which he promptly accepted.


Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens may be filming reality TV shows for VH1 during the offseason, but Randy Moss is chilling out from all the drama.

In 32 degree weather with his new friends, Rockhopper penguins.

Wouldn’t be surprised if Moss’s first thought after seeing the walrus was to throw a Patriots jersey on him. An extra 2,200 pound lineman never hurts.

Playing in New England must have prepared Moss for the below-freezing atmosphere. I’m sure coach Belichick would have enjoyed it.

Matt Damon was on “The Late Show with David Letterman”, and just so happens to be an avid Patriots fan, contrary to the belief that may arise after taking a glance at his apparel on the show.

A bet was made between fellow actor Anthony Mackie, who is an apparently persuasive Saints fan, regarding the outcome of the Super Bowl. I won’t spoil the rest for you, so watch the video below.
