    Tom Brady: Fair haired, blue eyed with a foreign born wife. Sensing a pattern here.

      Cry haters, like Taylor sings, hater gonna hate hate hate

    • Amelia says:

      Tom Brady’s hair is brown but nice try.

      • Collette says:

        Take a look at his baby photos. Many blondes’ hair darkens as they grow.

        • Amelia says:

          And my hair was darker as a baby and lightened, what’s your point? I think it’s a little bit of a stretch to call a 39 year old fair haired based on baby photos to fit your point. Especially when the majority of New England aren’t Trump supporters.

        • Vanessa says:

          If the hair darkens and becomes brown then that means they’re no longer blonde, no?

    • Eric says:

      And your stupid point was? Everyone trying to make things political are the same ones who cry about everything being so partisan and political. How about just enjoy non-political things without using your political glasses/filters?

    I wonder what the ratings would have been for Pitt-Atl? As with the entire season, who is in the game means a lot. Even though Goodell did everything he could to keep The Patriots out, he was probably thankful that they made it in and had their comeback win.

    The greatest choke job in the history of football.

    They compared the Atlanta Falcons to Hillary Clinton. Man, that is harsh.
