Football superstar and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

 

Sports commentators were all in a tizzy today on the news that New England Patroit Tom Brady has signed up to endorse a fashion brand. A fashion brand! Sacre bleu! Brady–who is married to supermodel Gisele–will be the new face of UGG Australia, which makes those short, soft leather winter boots beloved by college sorority girls across the U.S. Bloggers have used this announcement to wail about the continuing “Giselefication” of the quarterback and to, once again, lampoon his new long, flowing hair.

If Bill Madden's report on Derek Jeter's initial salary demand is right, I like to think that ol' No. 2 was wearing this look on his face when it was delivered.

A request for a six-year deal that would be worth a total of $150 million and end when he's 42 years old?

SAN FRANCISCO — It was a night to remember for baseball fans. For the first time since the Giants moved to San Francisco in 1954, they became world champions.
Filipino fans joined the tens of thousands who flocked in front of the City Hall Monday night to root for their team against the Texas Rangers.
Game 5 of the World Series may have been held in Texas, but Giants fans in San Francisco felt victory was within reach.
