Sorry, Tough Hombres. Tough break for you, Nasty Women. But it looks like this election is over.

Donald Trump pulled the November surprise everyone’s been waiting for. He played his ultimate trump card (pun entirely intentional), his friendships with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Hillary Clinton can have her Jay Zs and her Beyonces. The Donald waits until the 11th hour to drop the twin electoral nukes of the two biggest winners in America. Because he understands that as much as the country gives lip service to hating the Patriots, when it all comes down to it, Americans are drawn to success. We want to be led by winners. Brilliant, driven, focused, hyper-ambitious men like Brady and Belichick. And now, a Trump victory is assured. Bigly.

Of course this development is blowing up right now. Since this involved Trump, Brady and Belichick, it has zero shot at stopping at mere controversy, then fading away into history. This is going to be full-on, five-alarm scandal. The hand-wringing, outrage, fainting spells and mass hysteria has already begun. How could they?! What have they done to me?! Donald Trump doesn’t reflect my views and I only want people to endorse the candidates I like! What will become of us?! Whatever shall we do??? Won’t somebody please think about the CHILDREN?!?!

It’s not complicated, so try to keep up. The Donald has been in the public eye for 40 years. In that time, he’s been a friend to a lot of people. Including Brady and Belichick. Not only that, but he has been the only candidate in either party to make it a point to back Brady when the whole world was calling for his head on a plate. He is one of two candidates left that anyone can support. So – surprise! – his two long time friends are supporting him. If Hillary wanted their endorsements, she had plenty of opportunity to befriend them and pander to Pats fans, and she chose not to. Where I come from, that’s considered being loyal to someone who’s been loyal to you.

Of course, it won’t matter that close to 50 percent of all eligible voters support Trump too. The same people who say (correctly) that Colin Kaepernick has the right to protest The National Anthem won’t say Brady and Belichick have the right to endorse their friend. They will be vilified for it. Everything Trump has ever said, Brady and Belichick will be held accountable for. From insulting POWs to talking about Megyn Kelly bleeding to claiming he greets ladies with the “Trump Handshake,” it’s all going to stick to the quarterback and the coach like it was them that said it.

And I say, bring it. Call me a one-issue voter, but If Trump wins, it can’t hurt to have a man in the Oval Office with the power to help his golf buddies who have been done wrong. To return that pilfered first round pick, issue a presidential pardon for Deflategate, charge the Broncos with discrimination for refusing to sell playoff tickets to New Englanders … a million things. It’s certainly more than the Clintons have even thought about doing.

So go ahead. Hate on Brady and Belichick for this. Do your worst. They’ve dealt with worse and are immune to it by now. All I care about is that we Do. Our. Job. By Making America Great Again. We didn’t come this far just to come this far. We’re on to the White House.

AROUND THE WEB:

— After the Cubs won the World Series and broke the “Curse of the Billy Goat,” Theo Epstein celebrated by actually eating a goat.

Restauranteur Kevin Boehm said Epstein, the Cubs’ president of baseball operations, requested the goat from Girl & the Goat, a restaurant Boehm co-owns in the Boka Restaurant Group.

 

“We were on the phone with [Cubs GM] Jed [Hoyer]. He was recapping the game, and in the background, Theo says he wanted roasted goat for lunch,” Boehm told the Chicago Sun-Times. “I said we’d make it happen.”

The restaurant’s executive chef and “Top Chef” winner, Stephanie Izard, roasted a 9-1/2 pound goat for Hoyer, Epstein and three others to eat at Wrigley Field last week.

“They were all sitting in the left-field bleachers in an empty Wrigley Field. They ate it right there,” Boehm said. “They’ve said there are no curses, that it was just a matter of putting together a great baseball team. But they were happy to eat that goat.”

— Steph Curry made history Monday night when he set the NBA single-game record for 3-pointers with 13. 

The two-time reigning MVP scored a season-high 46 points and shot 13-for-17 from 3-point range in the Warriors’ 116-106 win over the Pelicans.

“This was a special night,” Curry said.”I was hard on myself in practice the last two days. I had pretty good shooting sessions. … My process is the same, but I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in.”

Curry now has seven games with at least 10 3-pointers.

Before this game, Curry was one of three players to hold the record of 12 3-pointers. Kobe Bryant set the record at 12 in 2003 and Donyell Mitchell tied it in 2005.

— Tim Tebow proved to be a valuable member of a baseball team on Monday when he hit a walk-off single to give his Scottsdale Scorpions a 4-3 win over the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League.

“It feels good. It feels good for your teammates, the work that you put in,” Tebow said. “Any time you’re in a game and you’re keeping score, you want to feel competitive. You want to win. And so I think this was a fun moment for all of us.”

Tebow’s batting average is now .146 with a .376 OPS in 12 games.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Great friend of mine. Great, great champion. Unbelievable winner. He called today and he said, ‘Donald, I support you. You’re my friend and I voted for you.’ … So I said, ‘Tom, you voted for me, you support me, am I allowed to say it tonight to this massive crowd in New Hampshire?’ He said, ‘If you want to say it, you can say it.’ ” — Donald Trump, on Tom Brady’s alleged support for him as a presidential candidate

THIS DAY IN SPORTS HISTORY: In 1998 Pedro Martinez became a member of the Red Sox when the team traded Carl Pavano and a player to be named later (Tony Armas Jr.) to the Montreal Expos. Martinez went on to pitch seven Hall of Fame seasons for Boston, playing a crucial role in the team’s 2004 World Series win.

The Bruins shut out the Sabres and the Bills dropped a close game to Seattle on MNF. Not a great night for Buffalo sports. It was a strange night for the 2016 election and the Patriots as Donald Trump revealed a certain QB/Coach combo has endorsed him through a letter.

[0:01:02] ... I'm sure you've heard by now. By the news broken not by Tom Brady and certainly not by bill bella Jack. But by the Republican nominee for president himself Donald Trump.

And it did just the type of person that cares about things that shouldn't you know ideally I want the air it out 12 o'clock humanly until 2 AM. I got a lot going on in my life here that I need to worry about that has nothing to do with who Bill Belichick heard Tom Brady are gonna vote for today. It just doesn't matter to me. The reason why I think it's bogus. Got this Mike stand some -- the reason why I think it's bogus. Is because. How many times have Kurt and jittery.
