Shut Up About Tom Brady's Legacy
Here’s a true sentence packed with enough ridiculousness to blast a person across the room like a cannon: a U.S. District Court ruling is anticipated today or tomorrow on whether one of the NFL’s all-time greatest players can be penalized for having general knowledge that some footballs were at some point fractionally less inflated than they may have been at some other point prior to the start of a playoff game, for unknown reasons, and to unknown, dubious effect.

When A.J. received the call from Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis and was given an opportunity to play for the team he grew up cheering for, it reignited a new flame of hope and excitement for all of us! After all, it’s truly been a blessing getting to stay with one team as long as we did. We head into this venture understanding that this is a business and everyone’s path is different. Wives know the challenges to help our spouses through. We have to be strong when they need it, to be encouraging when they question themselves and be the rock-solid base that makes transition and change look like a cakewalk. This particular move couldn’t have been easier. We built our permanent home in Columbus, which is only an hour and 45 minutes from where A.J. would play, so that made for an easy commute to our new life.
