Man Uggs


From Ellie and Hazel Flufer:

Hi Coach,

Great game last night! You guys chopped the tails right off of those Dolphins. Great job!

Sorry, we didn’t mean to offend anyone in regards to the Dolphin comment. We love Dolphins.

We just wanted to comment on Brady’s performance last night. He looked awesome! But we do have one concern, now that Brady is going to be wearing Man Uggs on and off the field, how do you think that will affect his passing game?

We love you Bill!

From the Playbook:

The short answer to your question is that if Brady is going to throw 517 yards a game he can wear lederhosen and a Shriner fez to meetings for all I care. The long answer is that Tom is very competitive in everything that he does, and that includes goatholding. Tom is the US leader in goatholding for three years running, and now he’s trying to up his stats in the heavily contested sheep-wearing arena. He’s very serious about it. He even wears a fleece jock. His uniform is 100% wool. He’s a very cozy guy to be around — You saw the Dolphins’ Cameron Wake trying to cuddle him last night. Even the Stetson deal is related: the cologne makes sheep want to be around him, and before they know it he’s wearing them as mittens. So if Tom Brady asks you to go to an apple orchard or a pumpkin patch or Scotland or anywhere else where there might be a lot of sheep in close proximity, be sure to bring your lint brush and some nose plugs: that Stetson is the reason I’m always congested at post-game press conferences. 

Dolphin Tale is no Seabiscuit and neither is Tony Romo

From MelroseSue88:

Hi Coach!

What movie should I see this weekend? I’m looking for light-hearted family fare, preferably with an uplifting theme!


From the Playbook:

There aren’t a lot of uplifting films out there these days and there’s a lot of factors that go into that. Directors need to direct better, actors need to act better, Junior Mints need to be mintier and come in a larger box.  In my opinion all the best movies can be described in one sentence. Think about it —The Limey: Old dude kicks ass. Phil and Ted’s Excellent Adventure: Morons smoke weed. When a movie’s truly great, the title tells you everything you need to know, like Snakes on a Plane. The simpler the better. With that in mind, I was a little put off when I heard the title Dolphin Tale. Everybody talks about how smart dolphins are, but if that were true they’d be smart enough to keep their mouths shut. Also, I’m no expert on marine biology but I’m here to tell you that a dolphin can’t grow a new tail any better than Tony Romo can grow a new head that’s less stupid than his current head. Even Morgan Freeman couldn’t sell that fantasy to a paying audience. I have a feeling tonight’s Dolphin Tale will be a little more realistic. Things might get a little strange, but I can guarantee the one sentence you’ll come away with won’t be, “Hey, Chad Henne grew a new arm!”
