Tom Brady should try to play until he’s 50.
I said there you are.
What prevents him? Seriously, assuming recent news reports are true, what’s to stop him from plowing at 45 and entering the next year at 46, and as much as his legs and arms will take him?
There is an old adage at times like these. When one door closes, another opens.
I guess Tom Brady isn’t short on doors.
If he and Gisele Bundchen are really ahead, it’s time to see what Monty Hall has behind Door #2.
Sure, Tom may not realize it yet, but in some cases, what comes out on the other side makes you forget about the initial feelings. Or at least make it a less painful memory. (“Remember when I broke that tablet? Geez, I was a mess!”)

To try and tell this short story, let’s go over here: If Tom and Gisele have really gone through, and if Tom does eventually return to social life, let’s hope to God he finds someone who is a big football fan.
Even better, a Tampa Bay Bucs fan says, “Hey Tommy boy, you have to keep slingshotting pigskin until your arm drops or they pull you away with a mark on your toe.”
Will others come to test the exact time expiration dates on the quarterback? Of course they will. But for the present, Tom is all we have. And boy we have something – perhaps the greatest QB ever, already a decade (take or take) past the old take-off time, and performing at an excellent level.
He planned to quit at the age of 44. And he did. for several weeks. Then he decided to come back, for whatever reason—maybe it had something to do with Miami’s failed plans.
Shortly thereafter, we started hearing about the feud under the Brady roof.
This is an idea that would be considered inappropriate or, at least, lacking in modern sensibilities: Tom would have many years to be a father and grandfather, but he only now has to play quarterback at the highest level and continue to redefine the age of his ilk.
Tom as a father and husband influences a handful of people. Tom as an age-defying revolutionary impacting millions. Maybe billions.
I can’t put myself in the wife’s shoes. Unless she’s about 13. But I’m assuming Gisele was hurt, lied to, or both.
But as her pain and/or anger subsides here and there, I hope she finds a way to think about what this unique talent – which would be Tom, by the way – achieves in a very difficult field of work, and perhaps realize why he is willing to risk so much to keep rewriting everything we thought we knew. about him.
A few weeks ago, we went through the motions, as we acted shocked about three schools from the Sun Belt Conference beating three Power 5 blue chip companies. We’re now pretending not to believe that Texas A&M, which supposedly “bought every player on their team,” lost again last week and has people researching the buyout language Jimbo Fisher used.
Sure, until Nick Saban leaves (and hopefully takes that damn duck with him), it’ll still be “Death and Taxes and Alabama,” but everything else is off the table. Nothing you know about college football isn’t true anymore. Nobody knows anything.
The guide is available Saturday morning on your color TV. ESPN’s College GameDay lollapalooza will be located in Lawrence, Kansas.
The Jayhawks are 5-0 and ranked 19th, and to fully understand the Bizarro world that is currently swallowing up the sunflower case, hear this: The Jayhawks have won no more than three (three!) games in any of the previous 12 (twelve!) seasons.
This is your name: Mark Mangino. a ticket? Dude, he could train a bit. He was the last KFA coach to score a win, back in 2008. Now, in his second season, Lance Leipold has performed what’s called a miracle, and that’s really not because, remember, this isn’t the college football we’ve always known.
Still, Leybold is the biggest thing to hit Lawrence since Alf Landon moved to town. Alf lost heavily to Roosevelt in ’36, and unfortunately, with everything pointing in one direction, expect the other – the horned frogs on Jayhawks in 6.
• in another place: Florida over Mizu 7; LSU outperforms TN; Texas over Oklahoma; Utah outperforms the University of California. Notre Dame by 6 via BYU; Great Georgia above Auburn; Ohio is larger than Michigan; Miami beats North Carolina in the OT. 18-year-old Saban on Jimbo; NC state by 1 over FSU; Kentucky outperforms the S. Carolina. And in the pretty village of Greencastle, just west of Indianapolis, just as the weekly farmers’ market was winding down, the Debow Tigers beat the visiting Wittenberg tigers by 13.
Incidentally: Do not confuse the Methodist-born DePaul with the Catholic-sponsored DePaul in Chicago. And don’t worry about investing your money in Greencastle Bank.
Sure, the National Central Bank in downtown Greencastle is where, in 1933, John Dillinger made the biggest burglary ever, but nine months later, he collected bullets in a Chicago movie theater.
While Dillinger was plotting and executing his heist on Greencastle, head coach Gummy Neal was driving the DiPauw Tigers into an undefeated and unrecorded season. Search!
