That Tom Brady

How about that Tom Brady?

I don’t have to go over the incident again, do I? My mother-in-law—who only likes Sunday football because it means TJ Maxx will be less crowded—even knows about “Deflategate.”

A few months after the infamous deflation of footballs, the NFL suspended Brady for four games. Many pundits thought the penalty would be reduced after he appealed, but it was upheld—even after 10 hours of testimony. Yes, 10 freakin’ hours!

Following the Deflategate game in January, Brady told the press that he wasn't aware of any wrongdoing. I believed him.

Will Creed be the Next Rocky? Or the Next Rocky V?

July 3rd, 2015

This week my good friend (and excellent drummer) Steve tweeted me a link prefaced with one single word: CREED.

Nine years ago our band made a music video for a song called “Apollo Creed.” I assumed he was just reminiscing, but when I clicked on the link I noticed a movie trailer. I smiled, thinking that Steve ironically sent me a link for a documentary on the band Creed.
