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…

As noted by golf blogger Geoff Shackelford today, when Tiger Woods Charity Foundation President & CEO Greg McLaughlin isn’t collecting a $503,138 annual paycheck for running a charity and stamping out rumors that Tiger donated money to earthquake relief efforts, he’s Tweeting insightful observations
that could in no way be construed as sour grapes:
The line for Pats v Bengals remains -4.5 after Brady’s “serious car accident”. I’m sure the media couldn’t have missed this one.
McLaughlin is clearly suggesting that Brady’s car accident wasn’t that serious, despite the New England quarterback’s car getting t-boned in a high speed collision.
But why would the guy running Tiger Woods’ charity foundation mock Brady’s vehicular misfortune in the first place? Read more…

From the regrettably named QUEM Magazine.
In the wake of last night’s COACHFAIL in the Pats-Colts game, the universe and its mom have been leveling unvarnished invective at Bill Belichick. Rightly so, at first blush; with a few seconds before the 2 minute warning and protecting a dwindling 34-28 lead, Belichick opted to go for it on 4th and 2… from New England’s own 28 yard line. The try failed by a slim margin, the Colts took over, and Peyton Manning calmly guided his team to the winning touchdown with 13 seconds to play. Ballgame.
(Wanna get away?)
So, yeah. Going for it and failing from the hinterlands of Obvious Punt Territory - soon to become the USA’s 51st state - and watching the game slip away immediately afterwards is an unforgivably bad decision, yes? Well, not so much. Contrary to immediate intuition, it was, in fact, the Patriots’ best chance at winning the game.
Ever wonder which of your favorite athletes will be unavailable to sign autographs in Heaven? In case you were planning on hobnobbing with Tom Brady up there, think again. According to one North Carolina church, he’ll be hanging out in the other pace. And they don’t mean Newark.
According to the Amazing Grace Baptist Church (Canton, N.C.) Brady, along with several other athletes, are headed to straight to hell. In Brady’s case, it’s chiefly because he “has an unwed child,” and “commits fornication.” But that’s nothing compared to Joakim Noah, who, says the church, is going to hell because he “Has long hair, which is disobedient to the Word of God.”
I’ve been meaning to get it trimmed. Who knew that a long wait at Supercuts would result in eternal damnation? Read more…
For those who can’t bear to subject themselves to the NBC studio shows, what with Football Night in America being so overproduced it makes T-Pain seem “gritty” by comparison, you probably missed Rodney Harrison continuing his crusade to turn himself into the court jester of today’s crop of NFL television analysts*.
(”Plus, dude, purple totally clashes with the uniform.”)
In this instance, Tom Brady had just thrown a pass in the pocket when he was hit in the knee by Terrell Suggs (and rather lightly at that), prompting a 15-yard roughing the passer flag at Brady’s demonstrative request. Afterward, Harrison took what should have been an interesting debate about the new NFL rules protecting the quarterback in the pocket and instead turned into an OMG controversy about just Harrison, Brady, and “manhood.” Oh, great. Awesome. Video of the play in question and Harrison’s “controversial” remark after the break.
