Patriots' Tom Brady: Welcome to Bootgate

Alice MeikleCorrespondent IJanuary 24, 2008

Breaking news! Tom Brady is really hurt and his coach is mum about his injury. 

Not so fast Coach Belichick, we have been down this road before. You can fool some people some of the time, but I am a skeptic all the time.  

For it was only yesterday we saw pictures of Tom Brady hobbling down the streets of New York toting flowers on his way to visit Gisele. Hmm...

I do not believe this for one minute. 

So you have the 18-0 quarterback who is allegedly hurt. Supposedly he was hurt enough to wear a boot, but well enough to shop for flowers for his hot to trot girlfriend in the city of his Super Bowl opponents.    

Why would he travel from New England to New York City to visit Gisele? Correct me if I am wrong, isn’t your girlfriend the one who brings flowers if you are hurt? I smell a bootgate.  

After spygate, I have been suspicious of them Pats. I just hope that the Giants are not buying this boot. After all everything is fair in love and war, but we all know that the Patriots will come with no love and play like it’s a war during the Super Bowl.  

I can just imagine the media in Arizona, Tom Brady at the podium and being asked about cowboy boots versus medi-boot, disclosure or non-disclosure. But one thing that holds true, the Patriots are always getting in the heads of their opponents—one way or another.
