Organizers of an annual fundraiser for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute promised a mystery guest from the Boston sports landscape would get his hair cut as part of the Thursday’s Saving by Shaving event.

They did not disappoint when it came time to unveil the guest of honor. It was Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who joined Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and others in agreeing to get sheared in exchange for donations to fight cancer.

Brady showed off his new hairdo in an Instagram post and the Patriots relayed that the event wound up raising more than $7 million to support the institute’s work.

Brady will get another chance to show off his buzzcut next week. He’s scheduled to sit down for a chat with Stephen Colbert on Monday.

  1. Man, Brady has a fivehead to rival peyton’s. Two all-time QBs, two all-time fiveheads. Maybe there is something to it? they’re both cerebral players… hmmm

  2. Football players do a lot of good things in the community. They also pay a heck of a lot more taxes than most of us. It’s the off-season, and I’ll bet there are hundreds of players out in their community right now, helping out somebody. Most of these guys have really big hearts. They’re not doing it for publicity. They really do care.

  3. Here’s how to raise money for a cancer charity. Give money to a cancer charity.

  4. OK, Aaron Rodgers – – – what are you doing for your fellow man?

    Or are you too busy doing some commercial; strutting around a golf tournament; or sunning yourself on a Mexican beach?

    Is it possible to get an article with 100% positive comments about TB?

    Nope. They wouldn’t be 100% positive even if he had the cure for cancer.

    Well, they should publicize it. That way, they wouldn’t have to waste their time with kneeling for the national anthem in a misguided attempt to raise awareness. The only thing I am more aware of is the kneeling.

  7. “They wouldn’t be 100% positive even if he had the cure for cancer.”

    You are correct. There would be people complaining he hadn’t also cured Parkinson’s, diabetes and 4 other diseases.

  8. No matter what he does, he’ll never rehabilitate his cheating reputation. Asterisk Tom is labeled for life. As it should be.

    It is amazing how many non-Patriots fans flock to the Patriots-related articles to post something vile regardless of the topic at hand.

    Same ones over and over and over.

  10. Maybe Tommy Boy will be able to run pass patterns now that his hair isn’t slowing him down. Wait, he tried that in the SB already…
