Nice try, Ian. But the kick by you is no good.

You tried to make Tom Brady out to be a jerk. You probably even hoped he looked stupid in the picture. Maybe you hate him for ruining your childhood by beating the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX and thought this would be your revenge. But you failed utterly. Instead, you were smitten by his charm and took a picture that is cover of GQ-worthy.

Don’t feel bad. You’re not the first person to find Brady impossible to hate. He might have crushed your dreams as a young boy and maybe you’ve longed for the day you’d meet him in person and vengeance would be yours. But his presence, resistance is futile. Even Gisele ripping you for being an Eagles fan probably felt better than your mother’s love. So don’t beat yourself up, kid. And don’t try to fight the feeling, or it will destroy you. Just give yourself over to it. Go toward the light.  And next time you want to call somebody a “f***boi,” pick someone who isn’t irresistible.

Oh, great. This is just what we need. Last week a guy in North Carolina got arrested for not returning a rented VHS movie from 2002, and now Julian Edelman is an admitted scofflaw.

Any way you look at it, this is bad for all of New England. Here is just another case of a member of the Patriots organization thinking he can get away with something. Acting like the rules don’t apply to him. Thinking he’s smarter than everyone else and he won’t get caught.

And once again, his arrogance will get the best of him. When the cops come to haul Edelman away, he’ll have nobody to blame but himself. He’ll probably have a sit-down with Mr. Kraft, who’ll ask him, “Have you played that game in the last 12 years? Well, then, you’re a schmuck.” And there is no way the commissioner won’t come down hard on him. After all, there’s a pattern of behavior here. Skirting the rules. Flaunting authority. Always trying to gain an advantage over all the other gamers who returned their rentals on time. Not to mention, Roger Goodell went easy on the Patriots over Deflategate, so he’s got to make an example of Edelman to appease the rest of the league.

I fully expect we’ll see Commissar Goodell invoke the “conduct detrimental” clause on this one. And if Edelman is suspended for all of 2016, I won’t be surprised. After all, he’s on the Patriots, which makes this way worse than being involved in a double homicide or knocking a woman unconscious. And it’ll serve Julian Edelman right.

P.S. I know I used this last week. But there’s no way I can post this without the library cop scene. I’d deserve to have my blogging license revoked if I left it out.

(NSFW, language)

Step aside, Drunken UConn Food Court Kid. Your title of Most Insufferable Dooshnozzle With No Respect For Service Industry Workers has been taken away from you by this University of Michigan freshman.

Our newest champion of the working man has been outed as Steve Croman from (surprise!) New York City by way of Michigan’s Tau Kappa Epilson. And it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone he inherited both his sense of entitlement and his perfectly punchable face from a notorious NYC slumlord named Steven Croman, who’s been under investigation from the state attorney general for kicking people out of their homes illegally.

So congratulations are in order for the Croman family. You’ve added to America’s surplus of abrasive, self-important snots who treat anyone with a blue-collar job like they’re beneath them and who will never do a productive day’s work in a wretched, miserable life spent being dicks to people trying to earn a living while their equally obnoxious buddies cackle with delight. Thanks. Here’s hoping the next ride service car you call ends up parked on your stupid fur hood.
