Kraemer and Brady


A silly clip getting too much attention, but I would be amiss if I didn't make note of it. This is of Andrea Kraemer interviewing Tom Brady and Randy Moss after they clobbered the Bills. YouTubers claim Andrea's googly eyes suggest she may have more on her mind than just sports talk.

Blowouts and Close Calls

(Tom reacts to an incomplete pass in the game against the Eagles.)


With a close win over the Eagles last Sunday (31-28), Patriot fans ponder if the world has found a weakness in the armor. The seemingly unbeatable Patriots looked quite beatable against a team they should have easily steamrolled.

Prior to the game, Tom Brady talked with WEEI sports radio and explained their strategy around "blowout" games:

"We're not trying to win 42-28, we're trying to kill people." said Brady. "We're trying to blow them out if we can. You want to build momentum for each week. You don't want to be up 42-7 or 35-7, and all of a sudden you look up and it's 35-21. We don't want to be part of that. You don't want to go into next week realizing that for the last 18 minutes of the game your team didn't play well or didn't play up to its capabilities. You gave other teams momentum for the next time they play you or you gave another team a reason not to be intimidated."

Calvin Klein?

(Tom during his appearance on Saturday Night Live.)

According to In Touch Weekly, Calvin Klein offered Tom Brady $1 million to be their next celebrity model. Reportedly, Tom is undecided. If I were a betting man, I'd put my money on Tom NOT going for the deal. $1 mil is too low, and based on past interviews, Tom seems to have difficulty seeing himself as a sex symbol.

Colts - Too Close for Comfort

(Tom and Peyton exchange a greeting at the end of the game.)

In the closest game of the season, against what is most likely their most formidable opponent of the regular season, Tom Brady and the Patriots managed another win yesterday, this time against the Colts 24-20. In a game full of bad referee calls and multiple errors on both sides, it all came down to who had the ball at the end of the 4th quarter.

Smartwater


Adding to his relatively short list of endorsements(at least compared to Peyton Manning), Tom Brady signed a 3 year contract with Glaceau, makes of Smartwater, valued between $3 to $5 million, to be their new spokes-athlete-celebrity.

According to Glaceau: "Tom’s trainer turned him onto Smartwater earlier this year and since then he’s made it part of his training regime."
