This was a week filled with curious and controversial decisions like Kevin Youkilis popping the question to Tom Brady’s sister, Rob Gronkowski partying like he’s on the Jersey Shore right after losing the Super Bowl, and Tom Brady’s wife publicly blaming the receivers for blowing the big game. What could go possibly wrong with any of that? Who knows, because they didn’t even make the top 5 this week.
1. Late in a close game in the Super Bowl, Tom Brady throws the ball deep to Wes Welker, a pass that he catches “100 times out of 100,” and he makes a play so memorable that there will be a candy bar tribute to him. What could possibly go wrong?
2. Got no room on your roster for your old team captain? Why not let him try out for the team anyway, still wearing the captain’s “C” on his shirt, even though he’s got no chance to make it. And while you’re at it, don’t close the door with your beloved 46-year-old knuckleballer, and let him come to camp too, even though you clearly have no plans to let him make the team either. What could possibly go wrong when you end up cutting them anyway? This will definitely end well.
3. Tim Thomas was a better goalie before he became a political pundit. Now, Thomas is trying to play Right Wing and goalie at the same time. What could possibly go wrong?
