Recently, Tom Brady was in a car accident and all of New England held their breath. It turned out he was fine, but his car was pretty badly banged up. It turns out the $97K Audi S8, was a loaner vehicle registered to a non-profit, Best Buddies, on whose board Tom Brady sits. Is this an issue? Joanna Weiss in the Globe thinks it might be.
Audi is supporting Best Buddies by giving them loaner cars. Presumably, Audi wouldn’t be replacing these cars with a check. Presumably, Best Buddies can’t really use 12 $100K cars at once and lets their board members drive the left overs…
I just can’t get fired up about this. Audi wanted to support an org by giving them cars. The org wants the support of the corporation and takes the cars. The board member drives one of these cars. Maybe it’s not pure, but neither is it especially unethical. What do you think?
In the end, it doesn’t matter if Lil Wayne can rock or not what matters is that you remember it’s ALL his fault.
Via Baseball Musings, we find that the Expo’s drafted 3 catchers in 1995, 2 of whom, Brian Schneider and Michael Barrett have had pretty good careers. The third plays for the Patriots and hurt his knee 8 minutes into the first game of the season.
I bet you didn’t know that/
Chiefs fans want you to know Sammy Morris blocked Bernard Pollard into Tom Brady’s knee, even if the replays don’t back this up even remotely. Whatever. But after watching the play another 75 times, it dawned on me that Sammy was more to blame than Pollard for the 2008 Patriots season going down the tubes. Sammy, why are you going low on Bernard Pollard like he’s a 345-pound defensive lineman? And if you want to go even further, if Kevin Faulk hadn’t decided to get high at a Lil’ Wayne concert, he wouldn’t have been suspended for Week 1, he would been playing that down, he would have pancaked Pollard, and my man Brady would still be playing now. Did you ever think Lil’ Wayne would be directly involved in the murder of a Patriots season? My head hurts.
