The Tommy


Before I start, I want to tell you that I'm off to sunny Florida today for the rest of this school week vacation and will return to the bloggesphere on Monday, April 25th. I also want to apologize about Friday. Let's just say that life sometimes gets in the way of the best laid plans and that early Friday morning was spent in office dealing with an issue. It wasn't until about 3pm on Friday that I realized I had forgotten to blog.



Boys, boys, boys.



Which brings me to today's topic: Tommy.


Now most of you who know me and hang around here know that the man in the picture above is otherwise known as "My Tommy". Through the years at The Daily Dandy, I have numerously pledged my undying devotion to Number 12 but after a rousting debate with a close friend yesterday, I've decided that TEMPORARILY he will be know as "The Tommy", and again, it's temporary.


I've changed his sacred moniker for a few reasons. Bottom line: I'm just not feeling his vibe right now. Yes, I've lost that loving feeling. I know, it's shocking. But the problem is this: I put this guy so high up on a pedestal that the fall could be fatal.


And he's on a deep decline.


They say that you're only as good as your last game and if that's true then The Tommy is in some serious sh*t. While talking about The Tommy yesterday, the subject ended up on his hair. And it ain't good. For me, it's like defacing the Mona Lisa and I have to fight the urge to look away, and the debate was about his hair having nothing to do with his performance on the field.


I will agree and herein lies the problem.


Correct me if I'm wrong here, Tommy could look like Big Foot if he's WINNING, and this post might have been completely different. I might think the Big Foot look was chic and trendy and absolutely dreamy, because when Tommy is winning there is something so magical about him, that he's untouchable.


But he's not WINNING and I'm just not feeling it.


Does this make me a bad sports fan or a bad Tommy fan or both? Unless Tommy finds a cure for cancer before the season starts, it looks like I have to ride out this latest headband wearing, way too long and unruly looking Tommy drama. A big Pat's win would certainly help.


That or a trip to the barber shop; which ever comes first.

I think that Tommy is going to produce another stellar year, if we have a season that is....

You are missing the other half of the equation in what is Belichick is going to provide Tommy on the front line for protection...If that half doesn't step up, then we are in trouble....

Joker- Agreed. We also need a pass rusher and a running back...if there is s season.

Just shoot the bastard already.

Oh, and come by my place today . . . coincidentally, Tommy gets a mention.

He's no Manning.

I kind of like the scruffy look, but not necessarily on a football player.

Give me an email if you're going to be anywhere near St. Pete/Tampa/Clearwater and we can all meet up.

Have fun!

Not a good look. Is that "product" or just "unwashed mess"?
