Tom Brady can't NOT embarrass himself


Tom Brady can't NOT embarrass himself

By Jon Fucile

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.


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!

Pregame Number: Perimeter pain for the Bulls


Pregame Number: Perimeter pain for the Bulls

Tonight’s pregame number is 133. That’s the total number of made 3-point field goals made last season by the players starting for the Bulls tonight. Whatever the Bulls reasons for signing Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade were this offseason, floor spacing was not one of them.

Wade’s career mark of 28.4 percent from distance is the third-worst percentage among active players with 600+ career attempts, while Rondo’s 28.9 career 3-pt FG% is seventh worst. And, for what it’s worth, the new-look Bulls shot 31.8 percent from beyond the arc (21st in the NBA) this preseason, while hitting 7.7 3-pointers per game. 

Despite allowing 15 3’s last night vs the Nets, perimeter defense should once again be a strength for the Celtics. Last season, the Celtics were fourth in the NBA with an opponent 3-pt FG% of 33.6. They were 38-15 when holding opponents to eight or fewer 3’s. 

With the NBA continuing to trend towards more 3-point shooting, it will be interesting to see how Fred Hoiberg’s offense looks this season, and especially tonight vs the Celtics.
