Turn on the lights, vacation's over

Well your Uncle Buck's Christmas vacation is over, it's back to full time Chowdaheads fun, and what a better way to kick off the final few days of 2005 than to look back at what has been going on since UB went on vacation...

First up, the Patriots closed out Monday Night Football with a 31-21 win over the Jets in the alcohol-free Giants Stadium. Tom Brady threw 3 TD passes (one to Ty Law, ugh) as the offense dominated the game, including a drive at the start of the 3rd quarter that ate up over 9 minutes.

On the flip side the defense continued their new plan of rush and attack on QBs, not allowing the Jets to get a 1st down until late in the 3rd quarter.

The only problem with Monday's win was Teddy Bruschi was injured. Of course the extent of the injury has not been released, but he did walk out of the locker room under his own power, which was a good sign.

It looks like Ty Law had one too many Christmas cookies before the game...

No beer and no beer make UB something, something...

Also this week Boston College won the Blue Turf Bowl, aka the ugh MPC Computers Bowl. The 27-21 win over Boise State in Boise, Idaho, ends a disappointing year for BC where they lost to # 8 Florida State before getting blown out by #3 Virginia Tech then losing at unranked North Carolina the following week.

The ugliest field in sports...

...woops make that the 2nd ugliest field in sports.

Meanwhile, former Red Sox closer Jeff Reardon was arrested in Florida for robbing a jewelry store. Reardon, who retired since 1994 and sixth in career saves, blamed his arrest on medication he was taking for depression. It was sad to read about Reardon's downfall, the death of his son in 2004. Amazingly the 1st thing that struck UB about the story was the fact that he still had his trademark beard after all these years.

On a positive note, UB has learned that Elisha Cuthbert will return to her role as Kim Bauer on Fox's "24". It is good to see her returning, as it looks like she'll be a part of the final 12 hours, but UB is hopefull she will be in a better role than being attacked by mountain lions.
