Sorry, Chad; even Pornhub has standards

On the average day, Id say no fewer than 15-20 press releases pass through my inbox. This is probably on the low side compared with what some other folks in this business have to deal with, but let me tell you: Its still enough to drive you crazy (or just shut down emotionally and delete every one before reading)

HEY!

Check out this restaurant youll never eat at!

And this exhibit youll never go see!

And can I interest you in an exclusive interview with some guy that no ones ever heard of?

Its tough.

But every once in a while you get a press release from the PR team at Pornhub, and you cant help but take notice.

Anyway, theres a little back story to this particular release.

Shortly after the world found out about what I assume the media has dubbed Condom Receiptgate, Pornhub reportedly offered Chad Johsnon and Evelyn Lozada 100K to film a make-up sex video.

But after having sometime to think it over and investigate the details, the premier destination for online adult entertainment got cold feet. Hence . . .

Tom Brady delivers video message at funeral of Navy SEAL

Tom Brady delivers video message at funeral of Navy SEAL


Tom Brady delivered a video message last week at the funeral of Navy SEAL Kyle Milliken, a Maine native and former UConn track athlete killed in Somalia on May 5.

Bill Speros of The Boston Herald, in a column this Memorial Day weekend, wrote about Milliken and Brady's message.   

Milliken ran track at Cheverus High School in Falmouth, Maine, and at UConn, where he graduated in 2001. Milliken lived in Virginia Beach, Va., with his wife, Erin, and two children.  He other Navy SEALs participated in a training exercise at Gillette Stadium in 2011 where he met and posed for pictures with Brady.

Speros wrote that at Milliken’s funeral in Virginia Beach, Va., Brady's video offered condolences and thanked Milliken’s family for its sacrifice and spoke of how Milliken was considered a “glue guy” by UConn track coach Greg Roy.

Milliken had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, earning four Bronze Star Medals and was based in Virginia since 2004.  He was killed in a nighttime firefight with Al-Shabaab militants near Barij, about 40 miles from the Somali capital of Mogadishu. He was 38.

The Pentagon said Milliken was the first American serviceman killed in combat in Somalia since the "Black Hawk Down" battle that killed 18 Americans in 1993. 

In a statement to the Herald, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said: “It was an honor to host Kyle and his team for an exercise at Gillette Stadium in 2011. It gave new meaning to the stadium being known as home of the Patriots. We were deeply saddened to hear of Kyle’s death earlier this month.

“As Memorial Day weekend approaches, we are reminded of the sacrifices made by patriots like Kyle and so many others who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend and protect our rights as Americans. Our thoughts, prayers and heartfelt appreciation are extended to the Milliken family and the many families who will be remembering lives lost this Memorial Day weekend.”
