While everyone at WEEI was doing their share Tuesday to put a $3.5 million boot in cancer’s ass at the NESN-WEEI Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon (take a bow, everyone who gave of themselves by donating), Tom Brady was giving a press conference in which he unveiled a new haircut. And of course, the Internet was not going to let a monumental development like that go unnoticed. Let a Tony Romo get injured or a Colin Kaepernick betray his country and nobody panics, because it’s all part of the plan. But let one little four-time Super Bowl champion part his hair on the side, and everyone loses their minds.
The reaction pretty much runs the gamut from calling Brady’s new moss the “Megyn Kelly” (see above), to all sorts of school references (see below). And were it on the head of any other quarterback, I might say it looks like the ‘do on the Yuppie douchebag comic foil in every ’80s movie from Bryce in “Scrooged” to Harry Ellis in “Die Hard.”
But this is not any other quarterback. This is the fashion-forward, perfectly groomed and always on point greatest of all time. So I’ll just call this new lettuce he’s sporting “The G.O.A.T.”
The Twittersphere disagrees, though:
