Peter King said this in his Monday Morning Quarterback column at the end of December:
Is it my imagination, or does Tom Brady look more stylish 20 minutes after a football game than the rest of us looked on our wedding days?
This question was in Bill Simmons’ last mailbag on espn.com:
Q: I’m 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, and not even close to being gay, so you know the Pats are good when people don’t even look at me funny when I mention my man-crush on Tom Brady. Mostly, they nod in agreement. I think at least 60 percent of North American males must have a man-crush on Tom Brady at this point, whether they admit it or not. Think about it. You’re out at a bar one night with more than a few cocktails in you, and there’s Tom Brady, you get to talking, go out on the dance floor, and eventually you’re back at the booth and he leans in and tilts his head just a little. Who’s turning that down?

His point was, “What the hell’s WRONG with these people?!?”
Word. The only way Tom Brady is leaning in and tilting his head just a little and getting anything other than bitch-slapped by PittGirl is if Tom Brady is simultaneously wearing a Steelers uniform, waving a Terrible Towel, and giving a sworn deposition as to the cheating habits of Bill Belichick. And even then I’d be all, “Okay. But first, here’s a Tic Tac, thanks.”
