Give Me a Real Man
Today, my boss told a story about a friend of hers who got in line behind a tall guy at a small market here in Boston. She thought he looked familiar, so she kept stealing looks at him, trying to place him – cute, well built, hair poking out from under his NY Yankees cap – when it hit her. It was Tom Brady. The Patriots Quarterback! Oh my god! Oh my god! The… NEW ENGLAND Patriots QB. Essentially, the BOSTON Patriots. Why on earth did he have a Yankees hat on? She got a little fired up about this, so she tapped him on the arm and rudely asked, “Hey Tom. What’s with the hat?” To which he replied, in the same tone of voice, “I like the colors.”
I love football. Love it. Sure, I love the Packers more than anyone else, but usually, I don’t have a problem with respecting my rivals. For example, I have nothing but respect for Donovan McNabb, Peyton Manning, LaDainian Tomlinson…anyone, really, who isn’t a jackass and loves the game.
But I loathe Tom Brady. First he does a Gap ad – a freakin’ NFL QB shilling blazers instead of sneakers? Loser. And now, a professional athlete, wearing a hat because he likes the colors? Come ON! Grow a freakin’ sack, Tom, and wear the hat of the team you supposedly root for. What the HELL is wrong with him?
And he’s NOT cute.
