DATELINE: Showing Finger to Referees
#12 & Twelve Angry Men
Who said you can’t judge a book by its cover?
Tom Brady’s new book features his mug on the cover. It is an up close look at the wonderful results of his diet—when combined with Botox. There is much more than a pretty face here.
We presume this is his game face. It could also be the face that launched a thousand slot receivers.
Yet, by the second game of the season, the face had eyes that defied conventional vision. Tom Brady sees things few mortals can discern
He made an appalling pass that was intercepted. However, he immediately made a gesture of two fingers on one hand and one finger on the other—waving at the referees.
Yes, he saw twelve men on the field and was calling it to the attention of the officials for review. Of course, they missed it—but the television cameras and replay confirmed what no one else saw: Brady demoralized the New Orleans team with his super powers.
Even aging superstars are better than mortal men. It leads us to ask again who this strange visitor to our planet is. Like ET, Brady will touch a whole bunch of new young receivers—and create another cadre of stargate receivers.
He may have lost his primary group through the ugly misfortune of gamma rays emitted from a broken mirror, but he is the epitome of quantam deflated footballs.
Tom could be seen on the sidelines talking to the assistant trainer about his injured Gronk. Never let it be said he is without sentiment.
Gronk may be down on the field again, but we saw him in two new commercials on TV this week. He will rise again.
