The women in Tom Brady's life that potentially helped build the man that he is… a winner. With them Brady had to deal with winning and then defeat only to come back and win over and over again. What do ladies and children have to do with Brady's life… it's been said behind every man there's a woman. As for Tom Brady… read on… - THIS DAY IN THE NBA - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS TEAM


Friday, February 05, 2021


As the saying goes there's a woman behind every man. In the case of Tom Brady there are two. As Brady was developing his career as being the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) there were two women in his life that most likely helped propel him to the heights that he has attained during his NFL career. Yes he is the winningest player in NFL history with the most Super Bowl (6) wins to his credit in nine appearances. Yes he was the Super Bowl MVP four times, 2001, 2003, 2014 & 2016.

Yes at 43 he is OLDER THAN DIRT and continues to play at a high level with the ability to turn a team around from being so, so to title winners as in this season with his new team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With all of that being said over and over again during the media coverage of the Super Bowl we chose to take a different approach to Brady's success… the women in his life.

When Brady was winning his first Super Bowl title in 2001 & 04 there were no women to speak of. He started dating actress Bridget Moynihan in 2004. Apparently they agreed to disagree and after a two year relationship the two went their separate ways in December 2006.

During their relationship Brady appeared in one Super Bowl 2004. The result was he and the New England Patriots were the winners of the game 24-21 over the Philadelphia Eagles. The result is one Super Bowl title with Moynihan.

While Brady focused on winning Super Bowls Moynahan focused on her acting career. Moynahan has starred as an assistant district attorney in the CBS drama Blue Bloods since September 2010, as of December 2020 it is in its eleventh season.

It has been reported that the two separated after having an acrimonious relationship. The deal is after their parting Moynahan found that she was pregnant with his child. If you were watching after the Buccaneers defeated the Green Bay Packers for the NFC title Brady went up to the stands railing and asked a guard if he could see his son. His request was granted and a young boy came down the steps to hug his dad.

Now this may seem tame enough not to make a big deal out of BUT… during media interviews Brady was asked if after the game he was going to have sex with Gisele (Bundchen)… ah… HIS super model WIFE!

Now listen pal-lees we don't make them up but when a big game comes around there are some strange characters that find their way to representing media outlets and they are not real journalists. They could be categorized as opportunists but definitely not serious journalists. Many of them are attractive young females. With that said we WON'T GO THERE but you can inject that into your imagination.

Now if that were me at the media ops for the game I would have wanted to know who that boy that he hugged was. Yes he most likely would have replied to keep his family out of it and this is a media event that is about the game. I mean after all being absurd does have its limitations and this was a reasonable absurd question following the hug a child episode.

To divert away from Brady and share an experience of how the media can behave, once upon a time a stringer representing an Israeli publication told me he was going to ask an NBA player about being busted for smoking weed. It was as if he expected the player to reply to such a query. The player was caught with A ROACH in the ash tray of his car and was really was no big thing but… Israel needed to know.

The player survived and went on to have a solid NBA career and possibly could be voted into the Hall of Fame. He now is in media as an NBA TV analyst. As for this NBA player, we've done stories on the man and he's a good guy and doesn't deserve being raked over the coals.

But back to the Brady Bunch and the women and children in his life. Brady and Bundchen have two children together and boy and a girl. That being a given the hug the boy child question is applicable and qualifies as not being absurd. In the business it qualifies as a side bar or adding color to a story.

Now here's the clicker… since he started dating Bundchen on a blind date (as in rebound) in December 2006 and they married in 2009 he has appeared in seven Super Bowls winning three, 20014, 16 & 18. He also was the game MVP in 2014 & 16.

Now don't get you PANTIES IN A BUNCH (in) but… obviously Bundchen is good for Brady and their BRADY BUNCH.

But here's where I have to defend the legacy of the GREY PANTHERS…. still playing at 43 is not a big deal. Once upon a time there was a player in the 50's and 60's that played until he was 48. His name was George Blanda and played quarterback for the Chicago Bears, Houston Oilers and had his greatest success with the Oakland Raiders.

In his second life as a professional football player from 1963 to 1965 Blanda led the AFL in passing attempts and completions, and ranked in the top ten for attempts, completions, yards and touchdowns during seven consecutive seasons. A four-time member of the American Football League All-Star team, Blanda's already-long career seemed over when he was released by the Oilers on March 18, 1967. However, the Oakland Raiders signed him that July, seeing his potential as a contributing backup passer and a dependable kicker.

During this time quarterbacks and kickers weren't protected as they are today. The QB was fair game and kickers often got hit to get them out of the game, penalty or not.

During that first 1967 season, Blanda's kicking skills helped him lead the AFL in scoring with 116 points. In two instances, his leg helped play a role in Raider victories: a trio of field goals helped upset the defending league champion Kansas City Chiefs on October 1; in the closing weeks of the regular season, Blanda booted four field goals behind a hostile Houston crowd in a 19-7 victory over his former team, the Oilers, helping gain a measure of revenge.

The Raiders went on to compete in Super Bowl II, but the following two seasons ended in heartbreak as they lost the final two AFL Championship games in the 10-year history of the league.

In 1970, at the age of 42 and within days of his 43rd birthday Bland was released by the Oakland Raiders during the preseason, but bounced back to establish his 21st professional season as one of the more dramatic comebacks in sports history. Beginning with the October 25 game at Pittsburgh, Bland put together five straight clutch performances. When he walked on to the field it was as if the Iron Man came to rid the world of the bad guys and you could count on him to deliver.

February 5, 1960 Bill Russell ignored a charley horse to grab a personal best (and second best in NBA history) 51 rebounds in a 124-100 win over Syracuse. Fourteen years later, Russell was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

February 5, 1978 In what proved to be John Havlicek’s last All-Star Game, Philadelphia’s Doug Collins relinquished his starting spot so Hondo could be in the starting lineup. Havlicek scored 10 points in a 133-125 East win.

February 5, 1993 Boston’s Robert Parish scored 18 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in a 105-93 win over Philadelphia, his 1,304th NBA game. That moved Parish into second place on the all-time games played list, trailing only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 1,560 games.
