We take all kind of pills to give us all kind of thrills. But the thrill we’ve never known is the thrill that’ll get you when you get your picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone. -Dr Hook and the Medicine Show
Curse schmurse! Jinx schminx! Nobody can stop these juggernaut Patriots. Nobody can stop these sluggernaut Patriots. These punch you in the muggernaut Patriots. Nobody! You hear me? Nobody! Not SI. Not Rex Ryan. Not that six-five, 230-pound quarterback with the laser rocket arm. Not the Steelers. Not that guy everybody wants to give a reach around to. (Michael Vick) Not nobody! Like my main man Mohandas Gandhi always says, “Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” Last I heard, Tom Brady ain’t giving no permission. Last I heard, Tom Brady ain’t giving no quarter. Last I heard, Tom Brady is the best football player that has ever been borned. When there is trouble, I’m there on the double. From Atlantic to Pacific, they know Tom Terrific! You better know too!
Jerome Simpson knows it. The Cincinnati Bengals wide Receiver is like Ray Charles. He wants to walk about it, talk about it, tell all the world about it. Tell all the world about Tom Brady. He told Terrell Suggs about Tom Brady on Sunday. According to Suggs, “He came saying Tom Brady was his favorite quarterback.” Welcome to the club Jerome. Welcome to the club.
It’s like my main man Henry Hill always says: “One day some of the kids from the neighborhood carried my mother’s groceries all the way home. You know why? It was outta respect.” Sports Illustrated respects the Patriots. Respects them enough to put them on then on the cover of their the NFL playoff preview. Peter King respects them enough to say these Patriots look “like a better team than the 2007 team that entered the Super Bowl 18–0.” Respects them enough to predict the Patriots will beat the Green Bay Packers 30-24 in the Super Bowl. The Patriots are the anti-Dangerfield. They are the team to beat. Remember these words. Titletown. Mother fuckin’ Titletown baby! Remember them I say!
Public Spectacle: Thank you Rex Ryan
Peace out homies. Six two and even!
