With a lockout looming, football fans have become curious to find out what their favorite athletes are doing without the game. Steelers receiver Heins Ward is battling for the coveted mirrorball trophy on Dancing with the Stars, Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards has taken a step towards becoming a professional boxer and Chad Ochocinco has basically been doing anything that will get his face on television. Bull riding, professional soccer; you name it, he’s done it.

So what are our local Patriots’ stars doing? They must be running their own little training camps and working out as if next season isn’t a maybe but a certainty right? That would be the Patriot way. Tom Brady probably has all the guys out on the field and is leading some team workouts like Michael Vick, Drew Brees and Mark Sanchez have done. Ehh.. not so much.

The NFL’s MVP is gallivanting through Mexico with his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen. Tom and his flowing locks were caught by paparazzi as he was enjoying a gleeful ride down a waterslide with Gisele patiently waiting for her giddy hubby to come giggling down to the splashdown area.

Here’s TMZ’s picture of the blithesome couple:

I love the Patriots and what Tom Brady has done for them, but this is just ridiculous. This is the straw that broke the camel’s back. First he let his hair grow out like a Euro soccer star. Then good ol’ Tom got choked up when he discussed being drafted on the Brady 6 documentary, but with a flick of his head to shake a few strands of hair from his face, he choked back the rest of his tears and triumphantly continued on. I don’t even want to delve into the horrific dancing episode at Carnaval in Brazil, but I think even Pau Gasol would have been like “Dude, you look ridiculous.” Before we know it, Tommy’s going to be growing a neckbeard and start sporting skinny jeans. Ugh, excuse me while I try to choke back my vomit reflex.

Like they say on NFL Countdown, “C’MON MAN!,” As a Patriots fan it’s getting hard to defend him. I just want Tom Brady back, the old Tom. The Tom with the crew cut, the goofy look and more importantly, that competitive fire to destroy any and all things that dare cross his path. You’ve gotten soft Tom! We don’t even know who you are anymore! Just bring back the old Tom Brady… Please?

  1. I like how “Tom Brady Hair” has developed it’s own tag here at SOB…

    Mr. Brady, what you’ve done is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever seen. At no point in your actions, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having believed in you. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  4. The one thing I will defend about this picture is that he has a supermodel waiting for him at the bottom. I suppose I’d make that face going down a waterslide if I had a supermodel waiting for me too.

  5. I kid, all in good fun, he has it all – Super Bowls, Super Model, Super…uh..life. So really envy plays a significant role over anything else in terms of criticism.

    But, as Brian said and we’ve discussed, I miss the Brady with the crew cut, leading his team down the field. TMZ Tom is tough to digest at times. And yes, Gisele looks fannnnnn-tastic here.
