How will the Pats survive this hit? No lattes for a week? How many strip joints are going to suffer because Tom Brady likes his balls soft? Oh, the humanity. To be slapped with such a fine. It is worse than Germany’s war reparations after World War I. Granted, the purity of the game comes first, and in the National Football League, nothing can sully the fine reputation of the game. You can knock the shit out of your old lady, and kill a dude who spills a drink on you, but by God, don’t be messing with the game ball. Belichick, put your house in order. :-)
