Deflated Footballs Much Ado About not Very Much

Rick, to your editorial in the Metro West Daily News May 16, 2015 (link here or below,) I think you are 100% right. I did not always think that way. At first I thought Brady, a man of whom I am not so fond especially because he threw dirt on the presidential acknowledgement of the Super Bowl win, seemed to me to be a self-inflated chiseled-looks ego brat. Maybe it is jealousy. How can one person be inscribed in the book of luck so completely when others trudge though a life infused with monetary woes, pain and looks that do not measure up in our looksist culture? All one has to do is ride through downtown Framingham to see the many empty stores, a metaphor for vacant-eyed human beings who were not so lucky as Brady has been in life. It's not fair. Okay life is not fair but I don't have to like it.

To the subject at hand: I suppose I wanted the league to come down hard on the NFL lawbreaker and its pretty boy who has all the luck, to get a klop (Yiddish for bang) in kop (Yiddish for head) through a hefty fine and suspension. But that is not fair either. You convinced me, Rick, the crime of slightly deflated footballs is much ado about not very much so the klop in kop should be reserved for the ones he receives on the field itself.


AS TO THE EMPTY STORES: IF REPUBLICONS ARE GIVEN THE BOOT OUT OF CONGRESS AND NEVER GOD FORBID GIVEN THE PRESIDENCY THEN THE EMPTY STORES WILL FILL UP AND THE VACANT EYED PEOPLE WILL HAVE JOBS!!!
