Not even 24 hours after losing the Super Bowl to the Giants, Pats QB Tom Brady has opted out of the 2008 Pro Bowl. A classy move from a classy guy in a classy organization in a classy town. Kevin McHale would be disgusted. The East India Company, however, would not. But this is what we’ve all come to expect from Massholes the globe over. Sore loserdome and whining.
Its not all bad, however, if you happen to live in Cleveland (you get used to the smell, I’m told).
Replacing him will be a man who started the season as a 3rd stringer looking to keep his job. Browns signal-caller Derek Anderson will indeed make his first Pro Bowl appearance. (Yes, I’m sure it’s his first, I looked it up asshole.) He’ll be joined by
motorcycle stunt ridersoulja Kellen Winslow at TE. Esteemed white receiver Joe Jurevicius won’t make the trip, but 4 other Brownies will.
“Anderson and Winslow will join Browns kick returner Joshua Cribbs, wide receiver Braylon Edwards, long snapper Ryan Pontbriand and offensive tackle Joe Thomas in Hawaii. Before this season, the Browns had not had a player selected for the Pro Bowl since linebacker Jamir Miller in 2001.”
So Brady’s not interested. The Browns have 6 Pro Bowlers and I’ve got Chad Johnson going all Corey Dillon on me. Some reports have Johnson replacing Randy Moss in New England next season. Sounds about right.
I’d rather have Wes Welker anyway.
