Normally, the New York sports media is the world’s greatest source for the most biased, sensationalized pseudo-journalism this side of, well, a sports blog. But the good thing about a New York team making a sports championship game or series is that the very same media at least digs to great depths to turn the most worthless dirt into news. As opposed to, you know, airing David Tyree’s catch ad nauseum.
Today’s big story is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and a comment he made while addressing 25,000 Pats fans who showed up to a rally to send the team off yesterday.
“We have the greatest fans in America. You guys have proved that year in and year out with your support. I wish I could take all you guys to Indy with us. We’re going down there, and we’re going down there for one reason. We’re going to give it our best and hopefully we have a lot more people at our party next weekend.” (Via NESN)
BOOM! Suck on that, Giants fans! T-Bra is already planning a major wicked kick ass raging kegger next week at Gronk’s place, with more porn stars than even Evan Stone could handle. Wait, that’s actually a pretty harmless comment. So I’m guessing the New York journalism community didn’t go overboard with responses…

Haha, damn that’s good overreaction. What say you, Gary Myers of the New York Daily News? Do you have a good take that totally makes a mountain out of a
butt chin mole hill?
He didn’t say he was hopeful of having a party. He said he was hopeful of having a lot more people at the party.
Is Brady already making plans for a big get together by Faneuil Hall with the Vince Lombardi Trophy by his side? Or maybe a little something by the Charles River? A parade down Commonweath Ave?
What was he supposed to say? “We’re just happy to be playing in this game, because we suck and can’t win, so we’re going ahead and planning a party for the Giants because they’re infallible. We hope they love hookers and gin fountains!”
Alas, that’s the job of the NY media and we love them for it. Keep it coming, fellas.
Also, I’m including this photo of Brady and Wes Welker from the pep rally because it appears that the team is finally letting Welker dress himself.
