    Couldn’t remember our beef with Van Valkenburg. Knew we had one, but then was wondering if I was confusing him with that asshole Don Van Natta. But Valkenburg was quick to run with Mort’s 11 of 12 report as gospel: <iframe id=”twitter-widget-4″ class=”twitter-tweet twitter-tweet-rendered” style=”position: static; visibility: visible; display: block; width: 500px; height: 317.75px; padding: 0px; border: none; max-width: 100%; min-width: 220px; margin-top: 10px; margin-bottom: 10px;” title=”Twitter Tweet” frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen=”true” data-tweet-id=”559889588588929025″></iframe><script src=”//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” async=”” charset=”utf-8″></script>

    BSF should tweet him again and see how he feels about his reliance on that 11 of 12 bullshit now.

    That about us thing from TBH might be the worst thing ever. Even worse then the one for my cousin. His now wife wrote it. It was all about her (she just finished a grueling grad school program!) and how she essentially wasn’t sure if my cousin was good enough for her (he was). Then she threw in a sentence about their first date. The end. It was so bad she eventually rewrote it. I’m getting married in May. I’ve made it clear there won’t be an about us section. Speaking of, anybody have some suggesting for reception songs? Sweet Caroline need not to apply.

    Wow. I hadn’t zoomed in to read the actual text, I was just going by the awful headline and photo of him in a striped shirt my 6 year old would reject. That’s beyond terrible.

    I can’t believe how angry I still get re-reading those awful tweets about the “deflated” footballs. It’s been a year and it feels like it just happened yesterday. Media has learned nothing. They just keep being shitty and getting paid for it.

    I find it satisfying that every new piece of info we get about Volin completely validates our opinion of him. This wedding stuff is truly awful, but nobody can say it’s surprising.

    He’s exactly who we thought he was.

    He may have blocked me. I’ll check later.

    That guy now seems to have turned a corner about how it was much ado about nothing.

    I’m ready to run through a wall after this paragraph.

    SEVERAL YEARS AGO, long before the Deflategate investigation and his fourth Super Bowl victory, Brady made it part of his pregame ritual to run onto the field for warm-ups while Jay Z’s “Public Service Announcement” blares from the speakers inside Gillette Stadium. You can tell it’s one of his favorite parts of game day by the way he pumps his fist, bounces on the balls of his feet and acknowledges the rabid Patriots fans already in the stands. Against the Chiefs, he trotted the length of the field slowly, knowing it might be his last chance to soak in the atmosphere of Gillette Stadium this season. When he reached the end zone, he roared, slashing the air with a vigorous punch. Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, looking on from a few yards away, mocked Brady with a celebration of his own, punching the air and bobbing his head. Brady glanced at Kelce, acknowledging he had seen the gesture, but jogged away in a manner that suggested lions do not concern themselves with the opinions of sheep.

    At first glance, it seems like one of those goofy collages that wives do on Facebook without your knowledge.

    But the Brady-Belichick-Goodell shit at the bottom suggests that he at least helped on it.

    What is clear, looking back, is not so much Brady’s definitive guilt or innocence

    Focus less on the media coverage and more on the fact that Darius Fleming is an absolute bad ass.

    I know it’s a generic template, but the headline describing Volin’s fiancé as “Cleveland’s best asset” made me laugh. Whoa, slow down with the over the top praise, Ben. She’s just a mortal woman.

    She looks like a normal person, so is she a horrible judge of character, just as simple and shallow as Volin, or both?

    As far as looks go, she’s definitely out of Ben’s league. Most likely his mental/emotional/intellectual equal.

    they’re selling those TB12 hats, so now I’m sure Goodell will fine him for wearing them to press conferences

    Not sure mortal woman and Cleveland’s best asset are contradictory.

    “dated” in college in 2004, she comes back in 2014 and they’re married by 2015 … I think we’ve got divorced woman with 3 kids looking for a sucker

    Ahh shit. I think I was confusing him with Van Natta.

    Whatever. He’s in the media so my default is he’s probably an asshole.

    Went back and looked at the website.  She looks exactly like you would expect.  Kind of young Suzie Essman crossed with Stan Laurel or Rajon Rondo’s chin.
