Things you can tell just by looking at him...

I haven't the slightest idea what's going on in this picture, but it pretty clearly illustrates my point. That being that Tom Brady is the dorkiest dork that ever dorked. Among the things you can tell simply by looking at him:
-Tom Brady's favorite movie is "Top Gun." He's asked people to call him "Maverick" on more than one occasion.
-Tom Brady LOVES Bon Jovi.
-Tom Brady has rocked the hell out to George Michael's "Freedom" in his yellow Jeep.
-Tom Brady has danced, "Risky Business" style in his underwear.
-Tom Brady knows the names of all the tertiary characters in "Star Wars."
-Tom Brady once had a haircut featured prominently on a member of any 90s boy band.
-Tom Brady watches "American Idol."
-Tom Brady votes for "American Idol."
-Tom Brady enjoys a good Journey sing-along.
-Tom Brady cries uncontrollably when he watches "Brian's Song."
-Tom Brady still really loves to collect baseball cards.
Oh, yeah, Tom Brady has also earned his name back with his performance today. 4 TDs and a passer rating of nearly 130 will do that for you. Tom Brady also loves Troy Brown, Laurence Maroney, and Corey Dillon. Not necessarily in that order.
You know that if anyone feels bad about breaking Brett Favre, it's Tedy Bruschi. Not that it wasn't a completely normal hit that resulted in Favre getting hurt, but still. Plus, Rodney Harrison is in the business of breaking people. That's not usually Tedy's job.

Suck on that one, Peyton. Ha!
It would have been especially awesome if it had been someone like, I don't know, Oakland or Arizona to knock Indy down a peg, (or, obviously, New England), but I will take what I can get. Peyton Manning's goal line interception was especially sweet.
Not that I don't think the whole 1972 Miami Dolphins sitting in their luxury boxes and popping their champagne corks thing isn't severely ridiculous, but I'm just glad it's not Indy who dethrones them. I hate Indy. I'm guessing you've gathered that. Rooting for the Cowboys has left me with a slimy film covering my body and I must take several showers now, but you do what you have to do.
The Hall of Fame was, of course, COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY AWESOME! Pictures and post regarding that tomorrow. For right now, I'm going to go think on Tom Brady's Ultimate Game Time Mix Tape. Who wants to bet there's some Europe "The Final Countdown" on there?
