Tom Brady and Wes Welker Make Like the Honey Badger and Don't Give a **BLEEP** at the Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby took place over the weekend. Known for mint juleps and giant hats, if you're not going to go overboard and have a little fun with your fashion at the Derby, why bother at all?
Just when I was looking for the perfect way to round out the year on The Sports Muse this gem fell from The Heaven'. A reminder that my dear friend Tom Brady is still the spokesman for UGGs and continues to be fearless in the face of questionable fashion choices.
I present to you: The UGG slipper for men.

I didn't want to do it. I tried to protect you. But I knew that it was only a matter of time before you found out. That you would one day see it for yourself. So I want to address it with you directly before it's too late. You may have nightmares after seeing what I'm about to show you, but be strong. I know you can handle it.
Football talk on Women's Wear Daily--not a pairing you'd expect to see. However, I stumbled upon a little gem on the Mensweek section of WWD that did exactly that. They featured a "Rating the Quarterbacks" piece, ranking the top ten quarterbacks in the NFL based on a variety of factors. Level of play counted for less than half of the overall score. How fun!
While watching a game I don't care to speak of ever again this past weekend, I decided that I needed to hate San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers more and lay off Tom Brady for a bit. As soon as I made this decision, news of Brady going to a hair clinic to investigate options for hair plugs hit the internet. I was nice. I said nothing about how the thought of a balding Tom Brady filled my heart with happiness and light. But I am only human. When news broke that Tom Brady was the new face and feet for UGG Australia, the snarky comments began writing themselves.
Like many football fans, I can't stand Tom Brady. He is one of those people that I disliked the moment I saw him. He looks smug. Everything in life has been handed to him because he is handsome (to some) and can throw a football. And he knows it. It makes me ill. And honestly, who can stand him after hearing that the dickweed left Bridget Moynahan while she was pregnant? Hate him. He has a surprisingly unmanly voice.
The second week of the 2010 football season is ending. In my eyes, it's going to be hard to top it. After last week's failings, both of my teams pulled through this week for wins. Though it wasn't pretty, the Eagles won with Michael Vick as quarterback. Even though "only" over Detroit, it is still a win. Big bro showed little bro who was boss in the Manning Bowl, and in so doing made me forget the pain that was the Colts season opener/slaughter by the Texans.
