Tom Brady’s Got ANOTHER Baby Mama

Gisele-4It’s confirmed! Clearly, Tom Brady is not a fan of condoms. The long-rumored pregnancy of his new wife, Gisele Bundchen was confirmed by Tom Tremendous in an interview with Chris Berman. Hopefully that is the only time something so ugly and Brady/Gisele’s children are near one another.

During the interview Brady joked about going to the Lamaze classes with his wife saying: “Well, it couldn’t be harder than this training camp, so I’ll be prepared. The women are the ones who have to do the work, we just have to be there and support them, so it’ll be nice to do that.”

Wow. I bet Bridget Moynahan read that and just broke about 12,000 things in her home. That just has to burn her ass don’t it.

Also, I desperately need to find a pregnant lady in the Boston area who is in their class, I don’t care if she’s preggers, I’m still happy to steal Gisele away.

That Seems Fast. Was That Fast?

I’m not so much of a runner myself; when I was in college and was regularly streaking it was usually more of a jaunt than a run.

Part of my distaste for running is that I am slower than slow. Like, really slow. I guess what I’m saying is that I’m not fast.

Sarah though, Sarah is REALLY fast; but then, she’s a cheetah, she was genetically built that way. Here she is at her home in the Cincinnati Zoo setting a new record for cheetahs by running the 100 meters in a mere 6.13 seconds, besting her nearest (male) cheetah competitor by .06 seconds. By comparison, Usain Bolt, the fastest man alive holds the human record at 9.69 seconds. What a slowpoke!

I’m Sure She’ll Grow Up Happy and Positive

Nearly free of the Chicago Cubs after their sale, the Chicago Tribune can finally see the team in a light-hearted manner. Or at least one clever editor in the Birth Announcements section can where this notice was slipped in:

photo_132576897Suki and Justa Crapi Yeare of Chicago’s north side are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Waitle Nex, born Thursday, August 20th in Los Angeles. The entire Yeare family eagerly awaits her arrival back in Chicago. The first Waitle Nex Yeare was born in Chicago in 1909. It’s too bad great-great-grandma isn’t around to see her namesake.

Baby Waitle was born several weeks premature but is somehow perfectly healthy. Doctors tell us that the chip on Waitle’s shoulder will wear down over the winter and she will be 100% healthy by spring. You should see how cute she looks with the albatross necklace around her neck.

Hey, what’s a century of failure between friends? Don’t worry Cubbies fans, now you have NEX YEARE on your side.

They’re On a Boat

I don’t own a boat, I’ve never owned a boat, I’ve never spent much time on a boat, but I still find myself invariably drawn to sailing and the ocean. I can’t explain it, but my dream is to turn this blog into a giant cash-cow leading me to owning a super-yacht or the like. You know, small dreams.

So, it was with great interest I saw this video of L’Hydroptere (translates to Hydrofoil) setting a new speed record for sailboats by reaching 51.36 knots (59 MPH) in just 500 meters. Awesome.

How dope is that?!!?

Bears Can’t Count to 50

Normally the team’s logo goes in the MIDDLE of the field, but the Chicago Bears, ever the trendsetters, instead are caught here painting their logo on the 45 yard line instead. OOPS!

They don’t play at home this week, so presumably this will get fixed. You know, or not, I mean, this is the team that thought Rex Grossman was a starting quarterback in the NFL…
