Phony Tom Brady video dupes at least one media outlet

Friday marked the 22nd anniversary of the Montreal Expos drafting a catcher from California at pick No. 501 in the MLB draft. Patriots.com had some fun with the occasion, editing footage from The Brady Six documentary that NFL Films produced several years ago and adapting it to his supposed anxiety as a 17-year-old prospect.

Not everyone got the joke.

Boston.com posted an item that took the video seriously, despite the obvious edit in the spot where Brady says “Patriots” and a different voice — a female voice, actually — says “Expos.”

Brady obviously opted for college football at Michigan, and you know the rest of the story. Well, maybe all of you don’t, given that an obviously phony video ended up being a belated, and unintended, April Fool’s Day gag.

  1. And so passed the greatest catcher MLB would have ever seen. I’m still ok with it.

  2. For anyone that doesn’t know boston.com is run by the Globe. It should surprise no one that they are idiots that don’t understand self deprecating humor and embrace anything that belittle’s Brady in any way. Kraft and the Pats are way too tolerant of Sox owner Henry and his rag.

  3. Boston Globe…going down by the bows…I think I just heard the boilers explode when the cold seawater contacted the hot metal boilers…I wonder how deep it is where she’s sinking? Will we be able to scuba dive on her? Maybe (if we’re lucky) the smug, self-satisfied plagiarist Mike Barnicle will be tied to the mast and go down with the ship.

    Sounds like there are some very smart folks at the globe. Are they idiots because they don’t agree with you? Pathetic…

  5. The Globe is an elitist rag. They’re so tone deaf, no wonder they believed this. They’ve been in so much hysteria since November 8th, they don’t know up from down.

  6. I have video of his phone handoff. Palms the old one in left hand, yells “super model ” while bolting backwards, and falls into a snuggle wrap by Uggs to be soothed by the glow of a new phone. Sheesh, he does it every month.

    The Globe and their cronies are of the same ilk as Mike Tomlin. They just cannot figure out Brady. Always a day late and a dollar short.

    No, they are idiots because they dont get their facts right first and then get themselves caught out saying stupid things like the article describes? Didn’t you read it before commenting? Thats sort of like what the Globe did.
