Last night, when we wrote about the first Super Bowl non-story story of the week, we eagerly looked forward to what the New York tabloids would do with Tom Brady’s innocuous comments at the Patriots pep rally Sunday.
We were not disappointed.
The New York Post put “Tom talks trash” on the front cover and “Tom’s Taunt” on the back cover. The New York Daily News got more creative: “Party of Jive” with the sub-heading “Hey Giants, Brady already talking about victory bash.”
We’ve already gone over how silly this is. Brady said that he “hopefully” would see more Patriots fans in a week when they return home and that they’ll try their best to win. And this was at a pep rally.
Brady’s comments couldn’t have been less inflammatory, but there are stories to stretch. We suspect this particular story won’t have legs. We hope.
