Who Dun It??? The Tom Brady Knee Injury Saga


I don’t know if you use the internet. I do. A lot. Mostly Twitter. Which is where I heard the devastating news earlier today about Tom Brady’s knee injury. Thankfully, Twitter was there for me in my time of need. During this hours-long saga, where actual news reports were few and far between, Twitter kept me entertained, and informed. I’ve rounded up some possible explanations for what exactly went down on the field today, and who is behind this whole terrible ordeal, and posted them here, for you. You can thank me later with a cold brew or two. Or you could watch the video footage and make a determination for yourself.

OMFG, Aaron Hernandez, You Giant Dumb Dummy.

Aaron Hernandez being put into a police car outside his home after being arrested.

I’m ashamed. As a 20 year supporter of the Patriots, I’ve had to defend against a lot of trash talking: “cheaters” “pretty boy” “hoodie“ “Uggs” “Dark Lord” “signed Tebow” “keep losing to Eli who’s really not that great” and I take it all in stride. I will not, however, defend an alleged murderer. I’m not a Ravens fan, after all.  If you did “orchestrate the murder” of Odin Lloyd, then I hope you rot in a jail cell forever. As much as I love your on the field play (how many amazing catches did you make, just last season???) I will not support you during this trial. Sure, maybe I’m jumping the gun here and I should wait until a court finds you guilty, but the evidence is just so damning. The fact that you attempted to destroy the evidence is even more damning.

Aaron Hernandez May Be Arrested in Connection With North Attleboro Murder

Aaron Hernandez

It started out to seem like a weird coincidence, Aaron Hernandez of New England’s’ Patriot fame was being questioned about a body found in a warehouse about a mile from his residence.  The initial story was rather random, a question of a rented vehicle didn’t seem to be very relevant – rental cars go through lots of hands, some of them of shady people.

But the conversation didn’t stop.

It came to the attention of authorities that Hernandez had hired a team of house cleaners on Monday and what do you know, the surveillance system that police asked to take a look at, he destroyed it. Ooops!

So who is this dead man, and what tie did he have to Aaron Hernandez? Funny you should ask, it seems he has a bit more of a connection to Aaron Hernandez than just a rented vehicle that is somehow tied to his death – it appears that the deceased, Odin Lloyd, dated Hernadez’s girlfriend’s sister (draw that out on paper if you need to). Apparently, Odin (cool name) and Aaron spent some time at a nightclub this past weekend before Odin turned up dead with no one to sit vigil for him. (One for the literati.) Read more…

It’s What the Patriots Do

Tebow Tebowing

It’s so tempting to point and laugh at the New England Patriots.

Dark Lord Bill Belichick and the Pats signed Tim Tebow on Tuesday, prompting much giggling, especially among Jets fans.

As much fun as it would be to jump in with both feet, I can’t. Because I have this nagging feeling that Tebow is going to work out for the Patriots.

And that’s bad for the rest of us.

When we did our series of video NFL predictions last fall, I found myself telling my fellow Draft Day Suiters the same thing more than once when we discussed the Pats: “It’s what they do.” Come up with big stops against offenses that should be able to score on New England’s geriatric defense? It’s what they do. Put up 40 points on what we previously thought was a good defense? It’s what they do.

Get extra mileage out of players who don’t seem to fit anywhere else? It’s what they do.
