Unreal. Tommy Terrific does it again.
I feel late to the party blogging this a few hours after it was released but ole dozo was a little busy wearing his teacher pants earlier.
Now I'm home and those teacher pants are off and bunched up on my floor. Now can give my basic take that all Patriot fans who saw thing are thinking.
But in all seriousness that was an awesome commercial. I don't really shop at foot locker because I'm not 17 years old but they have my support forever now.
Deflategate was exhausting for nearly two years and now it is officially behind us. If Tom can laugh about it then I think we all can too. I don't need to get into how it was a witch-hunt, how the Patriots are hated for being the most successful organization in sports this millennium, how the league was out to get Tom Brady and that Roger Goodell is the worst human alive. There's no need for me to say that because you already know so I'm not going to say that. We can move past all those facts.
What I will say is that this ad was perfect. It had everything; humor (Tom Brady), sex appeal (Tom Brady), and diversity (black kid who isn't Tom Brady). Just made a great ad for #WeekofGreatness. How fitting that the greatest QB of all time was a part of it. I want to give Brady credit for being a good actor but I think that was 100% genuine, that's how he truly feels. He was acting the same way that Vince Vaughn acts. Oh look, another movie where he's a guy from Chicago who's down on his luck. Oh what range.
But Brady's greatness has always been questioned. From when he wasn't heavily recruited to when he was the 7th string QB at Michigan, to when he was a 6th round draft pick, to when people believed the insanity that taking a little air out of the ball is why he's the greatest quarterback/human to ever walk this green planet. When there wasn't even evidence that anything happened. Sometimes you're just the best and nobody knows that better than Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr.
P.S. My only complaint is that Tom Brady was eating at a diner. The Idea of Tom Brady eating at a diner is insane. He hasn't even anything that tastes good in 10 years. Tom Brady eats nothing but himalayan pink salt, avocado ice cream and the tears of his opponents. Everybody knows that.
Double P.S. There's about 10 middle school boys at the school I'm subbing at right now who are named Brady. The fact they all were born in 2002 (months after the Patriots won their 1st Super Bowl) is awesome, lots of joy related births. Man I love New England.
