Tom, is that you?
How can we compete with the humor of Tom Brady?
What does the star quarterback of the New England Patriots do on his off-day during a short week? Well, if it’s Halloween on the calendar, Brady is up to some masked hijinks. Check it out in our highlight.
Don’t ask who that masked man is in the Whole Food grocery store chain? We can show you that right here. He put his autograph in a canister of candy for a lucky buyer.
Okay, it is a paid promotional stunt, but it still manages to be head and shoulders above Peyton Manning trying shove an extra piece of pizza down your throat, or Aaron Rogers attempting to escape his nemesis and stalker, the Cheesehead guy/girl.
Walking into a public supermarket and not being accosted is likely a rare experience for Brady. And only on the days before Halloween can he likely do it, wearing an oversize head that likely would be a tight fit for Richard Sherman, Sheldon Richardson, or Chris McCain.
Brady has posted his trick to his usual haunt, the Facebook page where he deposits most of his funny stuff.
We are almost tempted to run to the local emporium and snag a couple of buckets of healthy candy. Would Brady endorse anything less than that?
If he wears that mask during the game on Thursday, we believe a whole bunch Dolphins will swim back to Miami.
With the remnants of Hurricane Patricia about to descend on Gillette Stadium, Tom will whip up his own storm of touchdowns. We saw online the other day that “Gronkowski” is Polish for touchdown.
As we said at the start, our whimsy can’t compete with reality.
