Keep Yo’ Mouth Shut!

The Super Bowl is over, and the only thing being talked about today is Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele, throwing fellow Patriot teams members under the bus.

There are a few different videos with audio (I am assuming they are taken on camera phones) of Gisele leaving her luxury box seats at the Super Bowl and waiting to get onto an elevator. In the background you can hear what to me sounds like an inebriated New York Giants fan yelling at her and bashing on the Patriots and her husband in particular.(wait, this is a news flash, an obnoxious Newww Yahkahhhh yelling at someone, no way this could possibly be happening!)

Gisele is heard firing back “You (have) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” she takes a drink of bottled water. “My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

Granted I think if someone was yelling at me about my spouse or my kid immediately following a sporting event, I would take it rather personal as well. I would likely not be very pleased about it and I would likely think pretty long and hard about firing back some verbal salvos of my own.

But….you are married to whom many claim to be the “greatest quarterback of all-time” You are a Super Model. You are constantly in the news, chased by paparazzi, and frankly, you know better.

This should make for some interesting locker room conversations between Brady, Wes Welker, Aaron Hernandez, and Deion Branch – – who it could be argued all did drop catchable passes late in the game.

I doubt this will go away quietly. Football season is over and the New York/New England Media has to have something sports related to talk about.

Greatest of All Time?

Last night, in the wake of another road loss at the hands of the Philadelphia 76ers, Kobe Bryant passes Shaquille O’Neal on the NBA career scoring list and now sits all alone in 5th place all-time with 28,601 points. He trails just Wilt Chamberlin, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, although he sits nearly 10,000 points behind Jabbar at this point.

Kobe is 33 years old and had been able to achieve a lot of scoring success as he was drafted right out of high school by the Lakers. Last night on television, Earvin “Magic” Johnson proclaimed him the “Greatest Laker of All-Time” That is high praise coming from Johnson who many concede would be the current holder that title.

The fact is that Kobe will likely end up on top of the career scoring list, will have a fistful of NBA Championship rings, a myriad of All Star Game appearances and even an MVP title.

As with all sports some will argue he is the best ever, some naysayers will dispute that as a possibility.

If he stays healthy he is at least in the conversation of being considered the greatest player in the history of the NBA.

Until Next time….Stay classy Octagon, Alabama!

    Actually, Kobe only has 14,300 points.

    His wife got half in the divorce.

    People are actually angry that Gisele spoke her mind? Crazy! Here is why Gisele was right in everything she said:

    1) She’s a supermodel. While she is in front of the camera all the time, she rarely actually gives interviews. She isn’t well-versed in that area like her husband is. She isn’t paid by the Patriots to give the company line. She spoke her mind.

    2) All of us would lover our wife more for sticking up for us like she did.

    3) She was right. The Pats receivers weren’t exactly stellar in this game. Blame it on the high ankle sprain that Gronkowski was suffering through, but he wasn’t the threat that he was all season long. (A healthy Gronkowski would not have allowed that interception inside the 5 yard line….and probably would have caught it himself.)

    More respect for Gisele……if for no other reason but this controversy keeping her beautiful self on the front page of every major publication.

    I have no problem with Gisele’s reaction. Reacting to a fan in the heat of the moment is a bit different than being interview by a journalist. Had she reacted the same way in a sit-down interview, there would be more cause for concern.

    Why do people have to record and post everything that goes on anyway? Remember the daywhen the news was about important events rather than catching someone off guard and publicly humiliating them.

    Good for Gisele. She loves her husband. Who really cares? She is just another fan, not a member of the team. Now if Tom goes off on the recievers, he will not set many records next year.
