BROKEN RECORD ALERT: I’m still at work and I can’t figure out which is worse, the fact that all I’ve had to eat today was a bag of stale Doritos or the fact that I’m so exhausted, I don’t know if I can safely drive home. Either way, the papers are just about sent and Hell Week
end is almost over. Pheww!
But, I have been sitting here working all day listening to WEEI, and since I’m both starving and sleep-deprived (no food + no sleep = insanely psycho Angela), if I hear one more radio caller suggest that Tom Brady be benched/traded in favor of Matt Cassel I will go completely BALLISTIC. I mean, downright, straight-up crazy. As in, make-it-my-life’s-mission-to-find-these-callers-just-so-I-can-punch-them-in-the-face… crazy.
I am so sick of being associated with some of these run-of-the-mill bandwagon Patriots fans. I don’t think there has ever been more concrete evidence of how stupid some Patriots “fans” are (and I use the term “fan” VERY loosely).
Years ago, my dad warned me of the horrors of the typical fake fan. And if anyone knows, it’s him. He PAID for Patriots season tickets from 1971 to 1994! My dad went to every game in 1990. My dad endured a three decades of futility. He suffered through the “walk of shame” trying to exit the Superdome in January of 1986 after Super Bowl 20, surviving the barrage of taunts from Bears fans. If anyone KNOWS bandwagon fans, it’s my dad.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I like Matt Cassel. Even when he wasn’t playing well, I still liked him. I didn’t want him leading my team, but I still liked him, if you can make any sense of that. Matt Cassel is going to make a great leader for a team in dire need of a quarterback. He’s also going to make a lot of money. And, so long as that team isn’t the Jets, I couldn’t be happier for him.
But to insist that the Pats try and trade Tom Brady is so laughable, so absurd, so frustratingly retarded…. I JUST WANT TO SCREAM! It’s so INCREDIBLY MORONIC I CAN’T EVEN FORM SENTENCES OR TYPE WORD#@()$* (JFKJQ#$ %$@#(_*^%(#! @$% %$()%*_ @^ $#@%^ GFDYJ @#()%U!@ #$ TFDGL:45843286……….
