Gag Me With a Spoon -- Tom Brady

I saw this last night on ESPN SportsCenter and nearly dropped my jaw.

Super Bowl hero and golden boy, Tom Brady was caught walking down the street with a Yankees cap in New York City although he plays for the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS.

Anyhow, not that it is a big deal to me, but to the people up there – oh boy.

I’d figure Tom would have known better, but he doesn’t. You would have thought he would have known (he probably does about the Sox and Yanks) rivalry, but he must not care.

According to boston.com

“We know that Tom has an array of Red Sox caps from which to choose,” said team spokesguy Dr. Charles Steinberg. “But we fully respect that he needed to wear a suitable disguise for his own health and protection. We don’t doubt that he’s a card-carrying member of Red Sox Nation.


For me, it’s just a hat; however, knowing Ian from Sox and Dawgs, my buddy in Marblehead, the girls from Babes Love Baseball and the rest of Red Sox, Brady wearing a Yankee cap is akin being Benedict Arnold. I'm sure he's got a Sox cap or two, or three, perhaps many and um, I don;t exactly buy the excuse from his spokesperson.

If some paparazzi can find him, I'm sure an obsessive sports fan could too.

I don’t think Tom Brady cares, but New England sports fans are a completely different breed…

I don’t think he’ll be public enemy number one, but the shine on his otherwise great image has been dulled a little.

Even here from Maryland, you have to wonder what Tom Brady was thinking…

I still like him at least.

Clothes do make the athlete, lest have forgotten what happen last week in Baltimore in Baltimore with Gary Throne and Curt Schillings sock?

New England cares what their athletes wear and how they sport their goods.

What I find so amazing about Hat Gate is that is was not a big deal when Big Papi came to spring training last year in a Vick jersey or when Schilling wore a Roethlisberg jersey on Best Damned Sports Show just days before the AFC Championship game against the Pats/Steelers. How is this any different?????

I have no idea --- New England fans are just very sensitive and care about their teams very much...

That has just been my experience.

I think a lot of has to do with Brady's stature and what he represents to that region and all Patriots fans.

I think part of it is that Sox fans hate Yankee fans, and vice versa...

This site is so nice. Really i've been checkit for a wile. Here's some info about the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament history. If you like to visit my page it will be a pleasure. Or if know some one that likes to know about this, givethem this link. Will be nice to had some users like you with sites as good as yours. On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros - 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action. The men’s final is a best 3-out-of-5 sets with every other match in both men’s and women’s singles and doubles a best 2-out-of-3.We specialize in hard to find or sold-out sports tickets, concert tickets and theatertickets for sporting and entertainment events worldwide.
