‘Bill and Hill’ congratulate Tom Brady

By Tom Quiner


An NFL investigation into the “deflategate” scandal suggests New England Patriot’s QB, Tom Brady, knew of the shenanigans.

Mr. Brady is one of the NFL’s marquee stars. He is considered one of the greatest quarterbacks to have ever played the game. This revelation taints his golden reputation.

Wall Street Journal editorial writer, Allysia Finley, wrote a tongue-in-cheek piece in the morning’s Journal titled, “What Bill and Hillary Could Tell Tom Brady.” Here are a few excerpts:

Tom—First off, delete this message after reading. We’ve got enough problems without you adding to them. That hack right-wing writerPeter Schweizer just put out a book, “Clinton Cash,” on us, so we appreciate you taking the tabloid spotlight for a bit.

Second, terrific job responding to all those ankle-biting reporters in January about the deflated pigskins you used during the Patriot’s AFC championship game against the Colts: “I didn’t alter the ball in any way.” Of course, you didn’t. Your ball boys did. That’s what flunkies are for: Doing things you don’t want to get caught doing and then taking the fall.

When asked if you had cheated, you replied honestly: “I don’t believe so. I feel like I’ve always played within the rules. I would never do anything to break the rules.” We added the italics. In admiration. We couldn’t have obfuscated any better. Of course, you don’t believe you did anything wrong. And neither do we.

For a few more laughs, read the rest of her piece at the Journal online.

      You and me both! Of course, I’m a Colts fan and a Peyton Manning fan, so what would you expect?!

        Ugh…Peyton Manning…as a Chiefs fan, I am required to despise that man. I’d like the Colts more if they would stop beating us in the playoffs. I think this may be the Chiefs’ year….
