"The same boys who got detention in elementary school for
beating the crap out of people are now rewarded for it. They call it football."
~Laurie Halse Anderson
"Football is all very well as a game for rough girls, but is hardly suitable for delicate boys."
"Football has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with
hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all the rules and
sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence...
in other words it is war minus the shooting."

"Everybody has a preference. Some guys like them round. Some guys like them think. Some guys like them thin. Some guys like them brand new. Some guys like old balls."
~Tom Brady, referring to BALL preferences
"We're going to be fine. This isn't ISIS, no one's dying, we'll get through this."
~Tom Brady, referring to the "Deflategate" scandal.
That last quote by Tom Brady guarantees him a brilliant future in politics. I am guessing he will be a congressman or senator one day. I am sure the republican party is waiting with open arms to embrace the quarterback and his slightly deflated balls. Until then, he will be busy in the near future playing the Super Bowl, because, after all, there is no penalty for cheating, so really, did he cheat if there is no consequence for it?
