TMZEven Serena Williams couldn’t contain herself during a face-to-beautiful-face with Tom Brady today … telling the QB he’s her favorite EVER … and she was so pumped, she needed a moment to recover. 

The two met up during a quick photo shoot in NYC Wednesday — no word on what it was for … but clearly, Serena was smitten by the QB … especially after Tom reciprocated the love. 

Ordinarily, I object to this sort of shameless fangirling of Tom Brady, mainly because it’s my thing so unbecoming. Whether it’s Captain America or whomever, people need to check themselves when it comes to professing their love for the G.O.A.T.

But not this time. In Serena Williams’ case, I’m OK with the swooning and gushing.

This is how celebrity athletes should be paired off. Greats hanging out with the greats. Tom and Serena, side-by-side like two of a kind walking up the gang plank of Noah’s Ark together. The four-time champion with the 21-time champion. The ultimate teammate with the 13-time doubles winner. The guy who should have won the SI Sportsman of the Year, being friends with the person they gave it to. Just an unparalleled tandem of awesomeness, together in one Snapchat. It fits.

It’s just a good thing Tom and Serena are just friends. Because if circumstances were different and they ever made babies, nobody but their kids would ever win an athletic contest ever again.

Maybe my favorite football player in the world doesn’t play for New England after all.

This lovely lady chugging the beer is Ohama Heart running back/linebacker Shalynn Durham, and she does it right in front of the New England Liberty sidelines. That’s what causes the Liberty’s Jennie Johnson to swat the cup of her hand and holy hell to break loose.

Seriously, I have tried to break this down like the coach’s tape of a play, and I haven’t the first clue what’s happening. And the Legends Football League website is about as up-to-date as Chuck Norris Facts, so I can’t for the life of me who these coaches are. Just that the Omaha coach in the red shirt seems to be getting pummeled, shoves a Liberty player and then runs from her like she’s a ghost and he’s Scooby-Doo. Much to the consternation of the New England coach with the potty mouth. Beyond that, your guess is as good as mine.

The one thing I do know is that I love Shalynn. She’s the one who comes out of this brawl looking good. Fearless, crazy, arrogant and maybe slightly drunk. In other words, my kind of woman. The kind who would do shots with you, dance with you, take you home and then in all likelihood steal your wallet. But it would be worth it.

Shalynn Durham can chug from my Solo cup anytime.

How bad was Game 2 of the Celtics-Atlanta series? So bad that even the sight of the Harry the Hawk falling flat on his testicles can’t put a smile on my face. Think about that. “Man taking shot to the pills” is the very essence of comedy. It’s funny every time it’s been tried. Hell, it’s the life’s blood of the entire Adam Sandler film universe. But the Celtics were so historically awful Tuesday night they eliminated the pure, comedic joy of watching a grown man in a bird suit land on his nuts. Which is the first time in history watching a man fall on his baby-making parts wasn’t funny.

If they can come back and win this series somehow, we’ll revisit Harry taking one in the groin, and I’m sure then we’ll be able to find the humor in it. But for now, there’s only sadness.

AOL.comIt’s no secret that New England Patriots head coach/Sith Lord Bill Belichick is pretty picky about who plays on his team. …

However, there is one secret to staying on the Patriots that isn’t publicized quite as much: if you want to play for this team, you need to be really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking. …

[A]ll we’re saying is that the field within Gillette Stadium seems to be a popular hangout for extremely handsome men. …

If you’re seeking a stud in a football uniform look no further than Foxboro, Massachusetts — that is, unless you’re not into guys who wear jewelry. 

Well, I’m glad someone else is finally saying it besides me.

As the first openly Patriotsensual sportswriter, it hasn’t been lost on me that the Pats have essentially cornered the market on super-attractive great athletes. And I’ve been saying for quite some time now that it’s part of the organizational philosophy in Foxboro. The way they value guys who are smart, dedicated to football and who were leaders on their college team, they understand the importance of good looks.

To me, it’s an alpha male thing. Game recognizing game and all that. It’s much easier to be a winner on the field when you’re a winner on campus, in the nightclubs, in the photographer’s studio, in the fashion magazines, in the bedroom and just in life in general. The men running the Patriots attract the best-looking women so they can relate to players who do likewise. It’s a key part of their success.

Last year I was watching a game with the Irish Rose and a group of our couples friends when the camera cut to the Patriots sideline and Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Mathew Slater. (Don’t get me started on Jimmy Garoppolo.) To which someone said, “That is the Mount Rushmore of handsome right there.” Now, I’ll be honest and admit that someone was me. And I’ve struggled with my own orientation on this topic. For a while, I wasn’t sure if my attraction to certain Pats players means I’m secure in my own masculinity or is  a cry for help. But this article confirms it. It’s not anything to feel weird about. It’s simply the truth.

Then again, maybe I am just really attracted to championship rings.
