And so I decided to read the dreck on espn.http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2011/story/_/id/7525476/tom-brady-12-things-not-known-new-england-star-quarterback
Some highlights, in case you don't feel like reading the whole thing.
Tom Brady is a man's man. This is not really in question.
Um, yeah. The jury's still out on that one. Let's review the evidence.
"He always kind of calls guys 'Babe,'" the teammate says.
He gave each of his teammates, starters and scrubs, a pair of Ugg slippers (Brady endorses the product).
Yes, the Uggs. We all know what Uggs on a man signifies. But I would call attention to the fact that he gives out slippers as a present. Slippers that he gets comped for shilling the product. Is the point here to get us to like the guy less?
HE DOESN'T LIKE TO SHARE
Apparently, he doesn't like to share.
HIS WIFE FITS IN
His wife fits in... time alone with the pool boy? Three dudes at once? Too easy.
Brady keeps coconut water in his locker
Fascinating. The hallmark of a true man's man.
Hoyer went out to dinner with Brady on Monday night at St. Elmo steakhouse, and they were mobbed on the way out. It wasn't just the women who were screaming for Brady, Hoyer says. The guys were, too.
Guys... in Uggs.
