If this was Micheal Irvin or T.O. the focus would be on irresponsible
pro athletes leaving a trail of kids born out of wedlock behind them
but since it is Tom Brady the article focused more on Mr. Wonderful
moving on to his current supermodel squeeze and providing who knows
what was remotely relevant in terms of testimony at Charlie Weis'
For someone who is so good at his job it is too bad he could not
remember to find out who was responsible for the birth control that
night. That kid will not want for anything financially but money isn't
everything....Divorce happens after children arrive and dedicated single parents make
the best of it - this is altogether different and a disgrace. At least
it proves irresponsibility is color blind.
As for Brady, well, he doesn't look quite so golden anymore. Sure, the same jock show moralists who still rant about casual fatherhood in the NBA, even as they drool over Brady's current underwear babe, can say Tom has it all.But he will never have his first child. Not in the way most fathers do. No matter how much love or money Brady showers upon this son or daughter, the child will remain separate, an astersisk, alongside the family he will eventually have.
For all the debate the
Brady story has prompted, here is one aspect that is truly mystifying:
How is it that the Brady story is front page news in the Boston Globe,
yet the ugly divorce case involving third-wheel Pats coach Bill Belichick
never gets a mention? How is it that WEEI talks about the quarterback’s
situation but not about those of the coach? How do we draw the line
between a full-blown, gloves-are-off scandal and one we deem frivolous
and irrelevant, even if it is true?
