Getting Right On The Story

Reader Walter R. sent me this early in the afternoon:
Should I be impressed/disappointed that it took our hero nearly 3 weeks after the fact for Dan to write the inevtiable Lonborg/Brady skiing story?

Get ready for a whole summer of 1967 references.
And sure enough:
Hey Tom Brady, skiing can be a slippery slope
He does have a firm grasp of the obvious!
By now every Patriots fan has seen Tom Brady’s verified Instagram video of a skier, perhaps Brady, crash landing while attempting a ski jump in Montana a couple of weeks ago. On Instagram, Brady got into a short exchange with David Beckham in which he told the soccer star, “Hahaha yeah all good just my left shoulder which isn’t very important to me anyway.’’

Swell. But spending any part of the offseason in a sling is no way for a Super Bowl MVP to enjoy down time. Here’s a little advice for Brady from Jim Lonborg, the former Red Sox Cy Young ace who blew out his knee on the slopes and was never the same pitcher after his breakthrough 22-win season in 1967:

“It’s OK to ski as long as you don’t get hurt.
You don't say?

Let's skip to the amusing / hypocritical part:

Far be it from me to tell Brady what to do in his free time...
So, he devotes a whole column to it! Think he's still pissed about the Patriots winning the Super Bowl? Don't take it from me - take it from the commenters:

Notice how he always has to get a dig in at a Patriots.."Brady's PAID Weei gig", was that really necessary!

Danny, do you get paid for your radio gig? Never mind, nobody cares. How's your Super Bowl headache? How bout a vacation in Atlanta to get over it?
