Ahhh, suki, suki! Can it be that the NFL's new jack Golden Boy Tom Brady is caught up in his own baby mama drama!? I'm thinking 'yes' now that his former girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan, dropped the bomb that no single, dating homeboy ever wants to hear. Especially when you're trying to get your swerve on with Victoria's Secret supermodel Gisele Bundchen. I can't say that the playa hater in me is really feeling too bad for Tomcat. Bridget Moynahan followed by a Gisele Bundchen chaser? That's what ol Ty calls 'overachieving' and just like Icarus' silly butt (who was also feeling himself when he flew too close to the sun), Tomcat has crashed to earth with a deafening thud.
Still, all that's neither here nor there, my question is how will the sports talking heads treat this news? Will they lump Tomcat in with all the southside players who leave single mothers in their wakes or will he get a northside, 'Golden Boy' pass?...
First of all, just like Denis Leary in 'Rescue Me' - how's Tomcat pullin' this off without eatin' a ton of sandwiches? Granted Bridget was six years older than he was but Gisele is three years younger so I'm almost sure that Tomcat will need a sandwich or two in the days ahead to keep up with ol girl.
Anyway, back to my point, y'all. I've noticed that sports talks show hosts tend to contribute to the perception that fathering children out of wedlock is a phenomenon exclusive to southside athletes which we all know isn't the case. My view is that there's a common level of indiscriminate slinging going on on all sides especially among the rich, famous and athletic.
Tom Brady, two time Superbowl MVP and quarterback of the 'love to hate 'em cuz they're real good' New England Patriots tends to be mentioned most as the best quarterback in the NFL (at least until Payton Manning finally won the big one) so I'm interested to see if there will be any negative blowback on his squeaky clean, Madison Avenue image. I'm thinking 'no' but we'll see.
This before and after glossy of Scary Spice Melanie Brown gives Tom a possible glimpse of what he'll be dealing with in about six months. Melanie, as we all know, came out a while back claiming that she was pregnant with Eddie Murphy's baby. Eddie man'ed up and promptly said the baby wasn't his (not sure where Tomcat stands on Bridget's announcement...) and he's waiting for baby delivery and DNA testing before considering doing the right thing. If the baby is his (and it seems like it is), ol Ty can excuse Mel B.'s after picture since she's both stressed out from pregnancy *and* rejection. That's rough Eddie!
So homeboys what's the moral to this story? That's right - no glove, no love. How hard is that????
