Keeping Up with the Crazy
Among the things I apparently missed:
- Tom Brady is going to be a daddy. (Thanks to the four bazillion people who sent me text/voice/MySpace messages to that effect.) I really don't think I could have stopped it had I been here, but I'm glad y'all were thinking of me. Also, now I can pretend that Brady didn't play in the Pro Bowl because he was busy picking out a crib. Hee. As for how I feel about it? It's his life. I think he'll be a great dad. And honestly, did we think he was dating a hot Hollywood actress for several years and not engaging in the sexxing? Yeah, I didn't think so. I'm just glad he's not hurt. And dudes, he's Tom Brady, it'll be fine. That child will be seriously beautiful and is likely already fielding scholarship offers.
- Matsuzaka is apparently our $100 million caddy as he's evidently taken to carrying Varitek's stuff. Fantastic.
- The NBA All-Star team was at the gate next to me during my connection in Vegas because of the All-Star Game this past weekend. The Southwest dude with the microphone told us we could all go over and meet them if we were so inclined. Not exactly a mad dash. Still, I need a press pass. Not necessarily because of random, roving basketball players but because Slash was totally on my flight from Vegas to Burbank and THAT is a dude I have some questions for.
- Norv Turner is the new Chargers coach. Um...okay. I...wow so...yeah.
So, in the immortal words of the Standells, "Boston, you're my home."
