DATELINE: Tom Brady to Carpool to Work?
Just when you thought it was safe to drive to work during the early morning commute, you learn that Tom Brady is having a custom-made Aston-Martin fitted to his own design specifications.
This sort of transportation transcends the Mini-Cooper and even our own BMW. Aston Martin will pay Brady some unspecified amount to endorse their low-budget $212,000 cars (options extra).
This certainly makes Peyton Manning’s pizza deal of a lifetime of pepperoni look like anchovies under glass.
In a world of have nots and Trump-level billionaires, Tom Brady is casting his lot with the X-press Way of La Dolce Vita. He will not be allowed to commute to Foxboro from Brookline in the express lane unless he carpools with Julie E.
We don’t see that happening. Julian Edelman lives in Foxboro, not toney Brookline.
A friend of ours met Tom some years ago when he was not far removed from being a sixth round draft pick.
He and my friend met at one of those Cape Cod charity events when Tom watched as our friend had his red MB SLK 320 roof slide into the back seat.
Tom was agog, and said: “I need to get one of those.”
How times have changed.
He can now afford three of those Mercedes to one Aston Martin DB 11. When Tom pushes a button on his new A-M, the entire car folds into the back seat.
And we were going to tell him to buy Aaron Hernandez’s used assassin 4-Runner Deathmobile SUV for sentimental reasons. He’s outdone us again.
