Ridin’ Dirty: Tom Brady Uninjured After Car Accident
The Patriots got a little scare this morning after their star quarterback Tom Brady was involved in a 2 car accident while mashing through the streets of downtown Boston. Apparently a minivan ran a red light, causing Brady to smash his (flossy ) Audi into the van. Lucky for the Pats, Tom Terrific was uninjured following the accident and reported to the team facility for practice after a short trip to a local hospital.
Naturally given Brady’s status as one of the NFL’s Golden Children, major media outlets have been trying to blow this story up into a bigger deal than it was, milking this thing out like a pro Ho with a naive john. Although Brady has yet to comment on the accident, teammate Tully Banta-Cain addressed the media to let them know that Gisele’s Boo is ok.
Although all signs point to Brady being fine (health, not looks), we’ll get a better indication this Sunday, when the Patriots open up the season at home against the Bengals. Wonder how this is going to impact Brady’s ongoing contract negotiations with the team.
