Tom Brady, the Gwyneth Paltrow of sports, has a book out now that features approximately four million words about water, and water consumption, and different types of water, and how water can protect you from the sun.
It was hella dope news and bummer news for Rob Gronkowski today. First, the big lunk of a New England Patriot hit a very personal milestone by catching his 69th career receiving touchdown on a play that the Saints’ defense scarcely could have made any easier.
The Patriots got shoved into a trash compactor last night, and watching it felt wonderful. Alex Smith’s passable and shocking Aaron Rodgers impression may have been the most impressive part of the Chiefs’ performance, but the part that was the most fun to watch was rookie running back Kareem Hunt making his splash.
At the end of the third quarter tonight, the Patriots led the Chiefs by a score of 27-21. They proceeded to roll over and die. They gave up 21 points in the fourth, letting Kansas City run away with a 42-27 victory for the worst beating New England’s endured in recent memory.

Tom Brady has slowly and carefully built up his own lifestyle brand in recent years, with his extravagant pajamas, rabbit food, and post-human, Russell Wilson-esque ad pitches delivered through the Patriots QB’s online presence. It appears that Brady might be dipping his toe into a half-hour web series in the near…
Folks, what you have here are two warriors, hungry to compete on every play.
Patriots receiver Julian Edelman tweeted out a picture of a letter that was allegedly sent to him by one of his former teachers. In it, the teacher apologizes to Edelman for doubting that he would ever make it to the NFL:
Dustin Pedroia, Anthony Mackie, Bill Burr, and improvisational quarter keg Rob Gronkowski showed up at a roast for David Ortiz yesterday. Gronk’s material was clearly prewritten; Pedroia’s was supposedly not. One was clearly funnier than the other.
There’s a straight line to be drawn from the Patriots’ signing today of David Harris, a respected veteran inside linebacker who had been unceremoniously dumped two weeks ago as part of the Jets’ roster purge.
