Tom Brady is no longer a Patriot

Three days after Tom Brady announced that he was leaving the New England Patriots after 20 year, we now know where he will be playing football whenever the football season starts up.

Excited, humble and hungry …if there is one thing I have learned about football, it’s that nobody cares what you did last year or the year before that…you earn the trust and respect of those around through your commitment every single day. I’m starting a new football journey and thankful for the @buccaneers for giving me an opportunity to do what I love to do. I look forward to meeting all my new teammates and coaches and proving to them that they can believe and trust in me…I have always believed that well done is better than well said, so I’m not gonna say much more – I’m just gonna get to work! #Year1 p.s. Jack Brady with the photocred 😀

I hope the Buccaneers get their money’s worth. He is on the older side, and he did not bring home the trophy last year, so who knows how good he still is.

It is an unhappy St Patty’s Day in New England

As if there is not enough sadness going on in New England over the Coronavirus canceling St. Patrick’s Day, Tom Brady found a way to make it even sadder. There is not enough Guiness in Massachussettes for them to drown their sorrows in after what he posted on social media today.

To all my teammates, coaches, executives and staff, Coach Belichick, RKK and the Kraft family and the entire organization. I want to say thank you for the past twenty years of my life and the daily commitment to winning and creating a winning culture built on great values. I am grateful for all that you have taught me – I have learned from everyone. You all have allowed me to maximize my potential and that is all a player can ever hope for. Everything we have accomplished brings me great joy and the lessons I have learned will carry on with me forever. I couldn’t be the man I am today without the relationships you have allowed me to build with you. I have benefited from all you have given me. I cherished every opportunity I had to be a part of our team, and I love you all for that. Our team has always set a great standard in pro sports and I know it will continue to do just that.

Although my football journey will take place elsewhere, I appreciate everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our incredible TEAM accomplishments. I have been privileged to have had the opportunity to know each and everyone of you, and to have the memories we’ve created together.

I tried to represent us always in the best and most honorable way, and I fought hard with my teammates to help bring victory and triumph even in the most dire situations. You opened your heart to me, and I opened my heart to you. And Pats Nation will always be a part of me. I don’t know what my football future holds but it is time for me to open a new stage for my life and career. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I will always love you and what we have shared – a lifetime full of fun memories.

After months of speculation, it seems to be that Brady has confirmed he is leaving the New England Patriots. A team he has been with since the beginning of his career, 20 years ago.

Sorry, but this a real dick move. No other town is going to love him as he has been loved in Boston. To me, this is even more of an FU than when LeBron James left the Cavs for the first time.

Am I the only one who doesn’t like him for some reason? It has nothing to do with me being a NYer and out two towns’ rivalries.

The Lakers are charging for Kobe and Gianna Bryant’s memorial service
February 14th, 2020 under Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]


On January 26th, Kobe Bryant, his daughter, Gianna, and seven other people were killed in a helicopter accident. The world was devastasted over the news, no place more than Los Angeles and fans of his basketball team.

On February 24th, The LA Lakers will hold a memorial service at Staples Center, the home he built. Today, the NBA announced how people can get tickets for the event and how much they will cost.

From today until Monday, February 17th, at 10 pm PT fans may register to purchase tickets at https://verifiedfan.ticketmaster.com/kobeandgianna. Then on Tuesday, you will find out if you have been selected to purchase any of the available tickets.

How much do they cost? They are asking for $224 each, 2 for $224 and $24.02 each, and you will have to purchase them through Ticketmaster. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go to Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.

The Lakers strongly encourage people not to go down to the Staples area on that day unless they have a verified ticket. In order to discourage a crowd, they said the service “will not be shown on any video screens or by any other means outside of STAPLES Center, including the L.A. LIVE video screens.” There also will not be an overflow area to watch the event. It will be available to watch on your TVs at home or a sports bar.

When it comes to why everything is 2 and 24 related, the 2 is for Gianna’s number and 24 for her father’s.

I think it should be free like Michael Jackson’s memorial service was. It was a great tribute to the singer and it was calm inside and outside of the arena.

Derrick Nnadi is the true MVP of the KC Chiefs and KC pets!
February 3rd, 2020 under Admirable People, Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]

Derrick Nnadi was so excited that the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl yesterday that he made confetti angels on the field. Turns out, he is also an angel when he is standing on all two paws.

After the game, the Defensive Tackle made a phone call that will change hundreds of lives. He called up the KC Pet Project and made them an offer they could not refuse. The animal shelter wrote, “KC WINS! We are so excited to announce that the Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle, Derrick Nnadi is choosing to celebrate the Super Bowl win by paying for the adoptions of all the adoptable dogs currently at KC Pet Project!

We have had an amazing, season-long, partnership with Derrick and he couldn’t have thought of a better ending.”

Since the news of his generosity broke, the no-kill shelter say, “44 pets left the shelter today (38 dogs and 6 cats) with new families and up to 30 more are going home tomorrow! Of the 109 dogs that qualified for the sponsorship, around 40-50 of those dogs will still be available after tomorrow, which is incredible.” Beyond incredible and at least one of those best friends better be named after their benefactor.

If you want to adopt (never shop) one of the remaining pups, then you can see them here.

The 23-year-old already has the Derrick Nnadi Foundation that not only helps pets, but also children in both Kansas City, Missouri and his hometown Virginia Beach, Virgina. Like I said, he is an angel. Even if he did got to Florida State. Nnadi is one to watch and I cannot wait to see what else he does on and off of the field.

How boring was the Super Bowl?
February 2nd, 2020 under J-Lo, Shakira, Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]


Maybe it was because the New England Patriots were not in the Super Bowl, but it was a real snoozefest. How much of one? Some fan fell asleep during the game before the half time show. Maybe he was just trying to rest up for Shakira and Jennifer Lopez’s performance. What man didn’t rise up for that show?

In this guy’s defense, the only time I ever fell asleep during an event was during a Rod Stewart concert in the Miami Arena. (He was my third concert in as 48 hours.) That town will eat you up and spit you out. I miss living there.

Talking about Miami, I hope WSVN’s Patrick Fraser finds out who that guy was and why he was sleeping during the football game. If anyone can get all the details, it is him.

If you need something to wake up, then you can rewatch Shakira and J-Lo. To see them move their hips all over again, then click here!
