DATELINE: Move Over, Watergate and Deflategate
Not tonight, dear. He has a headache.
Like his friend Donald Trump, Tom Brady has a big headache.
No, it isn’t James Comey. It’s Tom’s wife, Giselle Bundchen. The superstar model gave an interview in which she announced Tom had a concussion this past season on the road to the Super Bowl.
In fact, she said he had many concussions over the years. Uh-oh.
This was news to the NFL and Roger Goodell as well as the Players Union. There are rules about medical reports and who can play if he is concussed.
Goodell never ducks an issue like concussions, and now Giselle has given him another shot at Tom’s head.
You know there is trouble when the doctor who was played by Will Smith and blew the whistle on concussions in the NFL has called Giselle heroic.
Tom may have another word for her. We may now see who wears the pants on the runway at Tom’s house.
Trump could fire Comey, but Tom may be up the creek with Giselle and her half-billion-dollar bank account. The Patriots are staying mum on Tom’s children’s mum, but we know that Jose Baez will be the first to offer his services if Concussion-gate gets messy.
We think Julian Edelman may have to recuse himself, and we aren’t sure if Bill Belichick will be subpoenaed to appear before Congress.
The Patriots may need to ask for a second opinion before the man with the Fountain of Youth admits he has feet of clay.
