Tom Brady can't NOT embarrass himself

Tom Brady is the ultimate star around Boston. Three time Super Bowl champion, helping build a football dynasty and bringing respectability back to the Patriots organization. On paper the Pats are contenders every year in large part due to Tom Bradys arm and football intelligence.

Off the field, however, Tom Brady is being increasingly odd. First there was the long hair and ponytail. Hey no big deal right? Everyone goes through a mid life crisis, even super star quarterbacks.

Then there was the dancing video. Embarrassing yes but no one was really surprised that the flat footed Brady wasnt exactly Frank Astaire when it came to dancing.

Then there was the crying video when he got all teary eyed about getting drafted so late. Not exactly the type of thing you want from your starting quarterback but we have to give him some credit, right?

Then he showed up at the Kentucky Derby wearing some kind of atrocious suit that looked like he went back in time to steal a suit from a 1920s hobo.

Now, Brady might have finally taken that last step required to transform from a super star quarterback to tiny little man girl.

There are some pictures circulating on the internet now that paint Tom Brady is a less than favorable light. Brady and his wife Gisele Bun...whatever, were on vacation recently and decided it would be fun to go down some water slides.

Seriously, who doesnt enjoy a good water slide!? That fact that Brady was enjoying the water slide isnt the issue here.

Tom Brady is 64 and 225lbs. He gets tackled by 300lb men for a living. Knowing that, if you had guess how Brady reacted on a water slide which would you choose:

A) Had fun and smiled a bit, but did not appear scared or nervous and simply high-fived Gisele when he got to the bottom.

or

B) Put his hands up on his sides like a scared four year old boy and looked terrified as he sped down the slide.

If you guessed A you apparently think waaaaaaay too highly of Tom Brady. Brady looked like he was squealing or terrified as he rounded the corner of the slide and some lucky paparazzi photographer captured a great photo of Bradys reaction while he was.... enjoying.... the slide.

Do you think maybe he got to the bottom and Gisele slapped him, told him to act like a man and then left with someone else?

We hope so.

Dammit Tom! First of all, quit giving opposing teams so much material. There is no comeback from this photo. Next time a Patriots fan is telling some Jets fan how much Mark Sanchez sucks, all the Jets fan has to do is pull up this picture.

How are you going to top this one Tom? Get really scared on a roller coaster?

Go to a petting zoo and crap your pants when one of the animals gets too close?

Any embarrassing pictures in your scrap book of you sitting on Santas lap and being absolutely terrified?

Youve come a long way from that cool, calm, ice in the veins quarterback we all knew and loved. Now youre a pony tail wearing, no rhythm having, squealing on a water slide three year old.

On the plus side, because of the lockout you have a lot of free time to redeem yourself. After this pictures though.well, well call it even if you win another Super Bowl!

Celtics force overtime, come up short in 127-123 loss to Blazers

Celtics force overtime, come up short in 127-123 loss to Blazers

BOSTON – For the second time in as many games, the Boston Celtics ran into a team that played with a greater sense of desperation.

And the result was yet another defeat as the Portland Trail Blazers, playing their second game in less than 24 hours, were able to get off their losing skid with a 127-123 overtime win over the Celtics.

Boston (26-17) has now lost back-to-back games at home, while the Blazers (19-27) snapped a four-game losing streak.

In the extra session, Portland jumped out to a 117-113 lead only for Boston’s Al Horford scoring on a bank-shot in the paint and Thomas draining a go-ahead 3-pointer for Boston.

Portland regained the lead when Al-Farouq Aminu made a pair of free throws with 59.3 seconds to play to make it a 119-118 game.

Boston soon fell behind 122-118, but a pair of Thomas free throws with 44.8 seconds to play made it a two-point game.

Mason Plumlee scored with 24 seconds to play in overtime, and an Al Horford miss – rebounded by Plumlee who was then fouled by Horford – essentially put the game away with 13.5 seconds to play.

Boston found themselves down late in the fourth quarter and seemingly headed towards defeat, only to get an unexpected lift in the final seconds from Terry Rozier.

Trailing by three points late in the fourth, Boston had one last chance to force overtime so who did they turn to?

If you were thinking Thomas which is what the Blazers and most fans were thinking, you would have been dead wrong.

The fourth quarter may be Thomas’ time to shine, but at that point in the game it was Rozier’s moment as he drained a 3-pointer with 8.4 seconds left that ultimately forced overtime. He finished with 15 points, three rebounds and three assists off the bench.

The Blazers came into the game with the kind of potent scoring punch in the backcourt that strikes the fear into the heart of any defense, let alone one that has been as up and down as the Boston Celtics this season.

For most of the game, Portland’s 1-2 punch of Damian Lillard (28 points) and C.J. McCollum (35 points) lived up to the lofty billing as they combined for 63 points.

McCollum and Lillard both did their share of damage down the stretch, but it was their bench – specifically Meyers Leonard – whose play kept Portland in the game early on.

He finished with 17 points off the bench.

Boston led 65-56 at the half, but soon found itself in a 67-all game after McCollum made the second of two free throws.

But Boston countered with a put-back basket by Kelly Olynyk and a 3-pointer from Isaiah Thomas to push Boston’s lead to 72-67.

Once again the Blazers fought back and eventually took the lead 74-72 on a powerful put-back dunk by Haverill (Mass.) native Noah Vonleh.

Brad Stevens had seen enough of his team getting pushed around, as he called a time-out with 5:31 to play in the quarter.

It didn’t help as Portland continued to bully their way around the rim for second and third-shot opportunities with their lead peaking at 78-72 following a put-back basket by  Plumlee.

But the Celtics responded with a 7-2 spurt capped off by an end-to-end, driving lay-up by Rozier that cut Portland’s lead to 80-79 with 2:44 to play in the quarter. Boston continued to be within striking distance as the third quarter ended with the Celtics trailing 88-86.
