Recently NFL star Randy Moss was traded from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings after expressing dissatisfaction with the Pats.
So how will things end up working out for Moss after his extraordinary move? It’s almost impossible to know how he’ll adjust, but if he takes his cue from his daughter, Vikings fans may soon be happy.
Rising high school junior Sydney Moss is already one of the best female basketball players in the country, with scholarship offers from many of the top college basketball programs around the country. But two years ago, Moss was entering her third school in just four years and had an attitude that reportedly was a “concern.” (She quit her high school team as a freshman and transferred.) Read more…
In just over 24 months Tom Brady’s topical solution for damage controlling his follicular fallout has transplanted public discourse from his premature baldness saga to comparing his coiffure to a moptop teen idol.
Now that, boys and girls, is public relations.
With the precipitous loss of the NFL quarterback’s locks indisputably obvious as early as 2002, Brady - at the very least - reportedly may have sought treatment for his rapidly receding hairline at AMD Labs in Manhattan in 2008. From the NEW YORK POST’s Page Six: Read more…
In case you’re unaware, teen media phenomenon Justin Bieber is now, officially, a rapper.
The 16-year-old recently released a rap video titled, “Speaking in Tongues,” which features Bieber critiquing the similarly shaggy hairstyle of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
In the video, Bieber is seen mocking a football-throwing motion while he spits this mad lyric: Read more…
Former longtime NFL General Manager Charlie Casserly reported Sunday on CBS that before New England traded Randy Moss to Minnesota, Moss and Tom Brady had a heated dispute in the Patriot locker room over the length of Brady’s hair and Moss’s beard.
Casserly reported on The NFL Today:
“The week before Moss was traded, Tom Brady and Randy Moss went toe-to-toe and had to be separated when this happened. One of Brady’s problems with Moss was his behavior as a Patriot. One of the things that was overheard was, Brady telling Moss, ‘you need to cut your beard,’ Moss countered (to Brady), ‘you need to get your haircut, you look like a girl.’ … Obviously Brady had some problems with Moss’ behavior.”
When Casserly alleged the hirsute dispute between the two NFL stars, howls of laughter erupted off-camera on the CBS television set.
Here’s some photos of Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen at a party in Paris Thursday night:
The pics have somewhat understandably sent some folks into a tizzy, but a few seconds of sleuthing revealed at least one of the two men photo’d for encroachment. Read more…
The marketing agent for New England Patriots rookie Brandon Spikes confirmed this week that his client’s appearance in an internet-leaked sex tape has resulted in the loss of a proposed, lucrative endorsement deal with Reebok.
The BOSTON HERALD reports:
Terry Watson, who represents the Pats second round draft pick, confirmed that Reebok, the well-known producer of athletic footwear, apparel and accessories, and a company that also has a longstanding relationship with the National Football League, had turned away from his client.
Watson, who verifed the information through Spikes’ marketing agent, did not know any of the specifics of the proposed deal.
So how much money did Spikes lose because the sex tape surfaced on the web? Read more…
Friday in Boston a garden-variety, morning radio show punching bag was suspended from a crane above the goalpost of a local football field for New England Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski to take aim.
(Dip shot if I’ve ever seen one)
WAAF-FM’s ‘Spaz’ was dangled 100 feet above ground between the uprights as Gotkowski booted kicks in his direction. Inexplicably bad camera work diminishes what could’ve been priceless video, but you still get a pretty good picture of what happened. (How did the Pats, of all teams, not get this on tape?)

The PROVIDENCE JOURNAL reports that 60 illegal aliens were hired to shovel snow out of Gillette Stadium before the New England Patriots game against Baltimore.
One woman was pregnant. Seven workers were minors. The youngest was a 14-year-old boy.
On a day that never got above freezing, some were ill equipped for the cold — and the rigors of the job. They shivered in sweatshirts and hoodies and frozen sneakers as they hurled the snow into giant chutes.
U.S. Immigration agents not only knew about the illegal aliens hiring, “In fact, the agents drove them there.”
