Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Predicts the New England Patriots Will Win the Super Bowl XLIX 27-17
Yet another reason why to love Sherrif Joe Arpaio …
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, “America’s toughest sheriff,” predicts that the New England Patriots will defeat the Seattle Seahawks and win the Super Bowl 27-17. Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he will allow some inmates to eat popcorn during Super Bowl Bowl. And if the Patriots win, or he might make you wear the pink underwear again.
The Arizona lawman who bills himself as “America’s toughest sheriff” predicts the New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl and says some inmates will be allowed popcorn as they watch Sunday’s face-off with the Seattle Seahawks.
Joe Arpaio, the 82-year-old sheriff of Maricopa County where the National Football League’s championship game will be played, held an event on Saturday at which he popped the popcorn and forecast the Patriots will triumph 27-17.
He also took a cheeky jab at his favored team over the “deflategate” scandal, in which the Patriots are accused of using under-inflated footballs during their AFC championship triumph against Indianapolis.
Holding up two mock footballs, one for each team, Arpaio noted that the one for New England was softer. “I don’t know if I can blow this up, but it is kinda deflated!” he said with a chuckle.

Madden 15: Super Bowl Predictions – Seattle Seahawks vs New England Patriots in 2015 Super Bowl
My analysis and prediction:
Let me first qualify this that I am a die-hard New England Patriot fan from the days of Sam “Bam” Cunningham, Steve Grogan, Irving Fryar, Stanley Morgan, Craig James, Mosi Tatupu, Randy Vataha, the late Darryl Stingley, Russ Francis, John Hannah, Mike Haynes and to one of my all time favorites Sam Adams. To more recent players like Ben Coates, Richard Seymour, Mike Vrabel, Willie McGinest, Tedy Bruschi, Lawyer Milloy, Ty Law, Rodney Harrison, Adam Vinatieri, Joe Andruzzi, Troy Brown, Randy Moss and Drew Bledsoe. To today’s cast of Patriots like Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, Nate Solder, Rob Ninkovich, Vince Wilfork, Devin McCourty, Chandler Jones and LeGarrette Blount.
Football games are made up of offense, defense, special teams and intangibles. Games like the Super Bowl generally multiply the importance of intangibles like turnovers, sacks, penalties and bad calls by referees.
The New England Patriots finally have a balanced offense and have gotten away from the video game, throw at all-cost offense that hurt them in the Superbowl’s they lost against the NY Giants. They have proved in the 2014 season that they can run or pass the ball depending on what defense they are going up against. In this years playoffs, they ran all over the Colts and passed all over the Ravens to victory. The Pats have the best QB in the game today, with a Super Bowl victory, Tom Brady may be considered the best ever. The Patriot offense finally has a collection of WR’s that are tough and fearless, similar to the ones that they won three previous Lombardi trophies with. Their power running game with LeGarrette Blount can be dominating. Then there is the match up nightmare who Rob Gronkowski … The GRONK!
For the Seattle Seahawks, if the offensive offense shows up Super Bowl Sunday like the one from the Championship game, they will not be trailing 16-0 at half time, it will be 35-0 and the game will be over. However, it is hard to believe anything that bad could happen again. Honestly, the Seahawks can thank their lucky stars that Green Bay coaching staff had their own “deflategate” incident two weeks ago where their head coach did not have the balls to go for it on 4th down and win the game and let the ‘Most Valuable Player’ in the NFL win the game. Guess who doesn’t do that, Bill Belichick. There have been games this year where Russell Wilson was terrible and of course there where many where he was very good. If “beast mode” and Marshawn Lynch does not carry the load in this game, it is hard to believe that the Seahawk passing game can.
DEFENSE: (Edge to Seahawks)
Obviously The Legion of Boom is a great defense, maybe one of the best of all time. Trust me, they will tell you so. I am a PATS fan, but I can acknowledge that the Seattle D is very, very good. The only difference this year as compared to last year’s Super Bowl is the Patriots are not Denver, Tom Brady is not Peyton Manning, Belichick is not John Fox. Also, they only think missing from the Seattle D is depth. Their D-line is not as good as they do not have their continuous flow of revolving the D- line. Kam Chancellor is the best safety in the game, but the unknown going into today’s game is the health of the Seahawk secondary. Safety Earl Thomas and CB Richard Sherman got hurt in the NFC Championship game. For some reason GB decided not to throw against Sherman who had one arm. If they get nicked up in this game, that could swing things in a major way. Kam Chancellor also dealing with an injury.
Although the Seattle D is very good, it is not like the New England Patriots are chopped liver. Their DB’s and safeties are very good and built to go up against the elite receivers of the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts. The LB’s morph to either taking on the run or dropping back into pass coverage. It may be the D line that determines the outcome for the Patriots. If they can stop the run and contain Wilson in the pocket, that would be key.
SPECIAL TEAMS (Patriots)
Sorry, kicker Stephen Gostkowski is a weapon and has a huge leg. Ryan Allen is one of the best punters in the league.
Punting and kick off return also goes to the Pats. Gone from Seattle is kickoff returner Percy Harvin, who put last years Super Bowl out of reach. Also gone is Seahawks wide receiver Paul Richardson who suffers an ACL injury in the divisional-round playoff against the Carolina Panthers. In the Championship game, Seahawks returner Doug Baldwin fumbled in the first half. Don’t think the PATS did not see that on film.
- Penalties - The Seattle Seahawks were the most penalized team in the NFL. The Seahawks continually jump offsides on defense and receive illegal procedure penalties on offense. The last thing you would want to do is give Tom Brady second chances and free plays. Some where during the game this will benefit the Patriots and go against the Seahawks.
- Coaching – nod goes to Bill Bilichick.
- Two TE New England offense. Gronk and Tim Wright have gelled of late.
- Injuries – Going into the game, 3 members of the Legion of Boom have injuries, the Pat’s center rookie Bryan Stork does as well.
- Beastmode – Will Seattle use their running game in the beginning of the game? For some reason they think they are a passing team lately.
- Julian Edelman – Does Edleman have a special play in him today, punt return, pass for a TD, etc?
- Which Russell Wilson shows up today? The one that starred in last years Super Bowl out-dueling Peyton Manning, or the one that had a 0.0 QB rating at the end of the first half two weeks ago?
- Can the Patriots and LeGarrette Blount run on the Seattle D, setting up play action passing?
My guess, the Patriots will look to stop the Seattle running game and contain Russell Wilson in the pocket. That means putting their DB’s, Darrelle Revis-Island, Brandon Browner, Kyle Arrington and Devin McCourty man-to-man against the Seattle receivers and move a safety up to play the run. If the Patriots can make Seattle a one dimensional team or play from the lead, it will bode well for New England. My feeling is that the 2014 Patriots team is more like the one’s that won the Super Bowl, than the pass happy, all offense and no defense ones that lost. Football is a game of match ups and this will be a physical one.
My pick, Patriots 30-20.
SNL Mocks NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio & His Overreaction to the Snowstorm of the Century With Seahawks Richard Sherman … “I’ve Seen Bigger Blizzards at Dairy Queen”
SNL MOCKS NYC MAYOR, THE BOY WHO CRIED
WOLF SNOW STORM OF THE CENTURY …
SNL’s opening skit was kinda lame, but has its moments. Except for the part where they lampooned NYC Mayor Bill de Blazio and his overreaction to the snow storm of the century, it pretty much was not that funny. De Blazio’s warnings of the pending storm that wasn’t was more along the lines of fear-mongering, and trying to take pre-credit for being on top of things, rather than telling NYC folks to be prepared. The skit went as follows … Richard Sherman (Jay Pharoah) and Marshawn Lynch (Kenan Thompson) hosted a faux-talk show, in which Sherman stated, and now I would like to begin the show the way I always do by verbally assaulting someone who’ve already lost.” Last night’s attack went out to New York City Mayor Bill de Blazio:
“De Blazio, yeah I am talking to you. You a punk ass mayor. You call that the biggest snow storm in the history of New York. I’ve seen bigger blizzards at Dairy Queen. And you seriously tried to shut down the whole city because of that?”
Below is the VIDEO of NYC Mayor de Blazio doing his best imitation of Chicken Little and the sky is family saying that the snow storm could be the largest snow storm in the history of the city. De Blazio stated that the snow projections are to be between 2 and 3 feet of snow that will hit the city. His message to New Yorkers was, “prepare for something worse than you have seen before.” Wait, was de Blazio talking about the snow or him being mayor?
Needless to say, NYC pretty much received little to no snow and yet he still shut down the city. Maybe the weathermen will turn their back on you next. I am surprised uber-liberal deBlazio did not blame the fowl up of the lack of snow to NYC on global warming.
The storm lived up to its billing here, where it dumped 19.1 inches, the fourth heaviest amount of snow on record for Providence. But in New York City where similar “historic” forecasts helped close down Gotham for a storm that fizzled, meteorologists and public officials were being accused of a “historic” screw-up.
State Attorney Phil Archer Announces Aggravated Assault Charges Won’t Be Filed Against George Zimmerman
ASSAULT CHARGES DROPPED AGAIN …
On Friday, State Attorney Phil Archer, whose jurisdiction includes Brevard and Seminole counties, announced that his office will not pursue aggravated assault charges against George Zimmerman. The often in trouble Zimmerman, since being acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, was arrested on 1/9/15 and booked for aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon in Lake Mary, Florida. Zimmerman was accused of throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend. However, Phil Archer stated that there was been a subsequent recantation by the alleged victim of her initial statement along with “new documents provided by the victim and her attorney precludes my office from proceeding further”.
George Zimmerman was arrested, again, this month in the suspected aggravated assault of a girlfriend. And, again, a Florida prosecutor has opted not to press formal charges — after the alleged victim backed off her claims.
State Attorney Phil Archer, whose jurisdiction includes Brevard and Seminole counties, announced Friday that his office won’t file charges against Zimmerman, who first came to the world’s attention for his arrest and eventual acquittal in the 2012 shooting death of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin.
Friday’s announcement relates to the 31-year-old’s arrest in Lake Mary, Florida, on January 9.
“While it clear that the officers had probable cause to arrest Mr. Zimmerman, which was affirmed by the circuit court judge at initial appearances, the subsequent recantation by the (alleged) victim of her initial statement along with new documents provided by the victim and her attorney precludes my office from proceeding further,” Archer said.
The woman has since denied that Zimmerman threw a bottle or that she ever feared him, according to a statement Friday from Lake Mary police.
“She also made it clear that she did not want to proceed with the case,” said police, noting that Lake Mary police Chief Steve Bracknell “concurred with Archer’s decision.” “A lack of eyewitnesses or other corroborating evidence to dispute her version of the incident also contributed to the decision.”
This is the second time that domestic violence charges have been dropped against Zimmerman. Back in 2013, domestic violence charges were dropped against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, recanted in an affidavit that Zimmerman pointed a gun at her face.
A NOTE TO GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: GO AWAY!!! GO INTO HIDING, MAYBE TRY THE WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM, SOMETHING. OJ SIMPSON USED TO PULL THIS SAME NONSENSE AFTER HE WAS ACQUITTED AND LOOK WHERE HE WOUND UP. TAKE A LESSON, FROM OF ALL PEOPLE CASEY ANTHONY, CONSIDER YOURSELF LUCKY AND REMOVE YOURSELF FROM THE PUBLIC VIEW. CONTINUE TO BE A NARCISSIST AND YOU WILL EVENTUALLY WIND UP IN PRISON.
The latest Des Moines Register poll has Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in the leads the GOP pack for presidential candidates for 2016. The poll takes into account Mitt Romney removing himself from the race and allocated his percentages accordingly.According to the poll results, Gov. Walker leads the large GOP pack with 15% of GOP presidential contenders. The poll shows that Walker is also the No. 2 most popular choice for likely caucus-goers who want an establishment candidate, and he’s the No. 2 for those who want an anti-establishment candidate. It was just last week that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker wowed them in Iowa and asked for Iowans to take a further look at him. Between now and 2016 is an eternity, but it is important to get noticed in the beginning otherwise you will be pealed off before you even get to the primaries.
Iowa Freedom Summit 2015 Scott Walker Speech
Presidential stage newcomer Scott Walker, the conservative reform pit bull who inspired death threats from the left, has become the one to watch in the race for the Republican nomination a year out from the Iowa caucuses.
At 15 percentage points, he leads a big, tightly packed field of potential contenders in a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll of likely Republican caucusgoers. The caucuses are scheduled for Feb. 1, 2016.
The Wisconsin governor is also the No. 2 most popular choice for likely caucusgoers who want an establishment candidate, and he’s the No. 2 for those who want an anti-establishment candidate, the poll shows.
“He’s in a sweet spot,” pollster J. Ann Selzer said. “People who don’t want an ultra-conservative think he’s OK. People who don’t want a moderate think he’s OK.”
Just one point behind is Rand Paul, a U.S. senator from Kentucky and the son of three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul, a hero to dissidents who want to shake up government. Paul draws support from the same anti-establishment well.

ISIS savages behead a second Japanese hostage …
A video has been released online that shows 47 year old Kenji Goto being beheaded by an ISIS terrorist with a British accent. The latest beheading video comes less than a week after another Japanese hostage, Haruna Yukawa, was executed. Japanese officials had been working with Jordan to secure the release of Goto and a Jordanian pilot, Moaz al-Kasasbeh, who was shot down over Syria in December; however, earlier on Saturday negotiations had become deadlocked.
The video comes less than a week after news of the beheading of another Japanese man, Haruna Yukawa.
Mr Goto, 47, is a well-known freelance journalist and film-maker who went to Syria in October, reportedly to try to secure Mr Yukawa’s release.
Japan said it was trying to authenticate the video.
The video, which bears the same symbols as previous IS videos, shows a militant with a British accent beheading Mr Goto.
Japanese government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said Japan was “outraged” by the video, adding that the cabinet was meeting to decide a response to it.
Rupert Wingfield-Hayes: “The Japanese PM has taken a very tough line”
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Japan “would not give in to terrorism”.
He said Japan would work with the international community to bring those responsible for Kenji Goto’s apparent murder to justice.
The video — the authenticity of which cannot be confirmed by The Japan Times — shows a masked man speaking in British-accented English standing beside Goto kneeling down on the ground, wearing an orange jumpsuit.
“To the Japanese government. You, like your foolish allies in the satanic coalition, have yet to understand that we, by Allah’s grace, are a large Islamic caliphate with authority and power and an entire army thirsty for your blood,” the man said, brandishing a knife.
“Abe, because of your decision to take part in an unwinnable war, this knife will not only slaughter Kenji but will carry on and also cause carnage wherever your people are found. So let the nightmare for Japan begin.”
Then the man applied the knife to the throat of Goto and the video switched to a still image of what appears to be the beheaded body of Goto.
