Tom Brady was one of several dozen New England Patriots players who skipped the team’s ceremonial Super Bowl visit to the White House last year. Unlike some of his teammates who stayed home in opposition to President Donald Trump, Brady missed the celebratory event to spend time with his ailing mother. Still, that rationale reportedly didn’t assuage Trump’s feelings when he wouldn’t get to see his favorite quarterback on the South Lawn. More than a year later, a Washington Post report Monday night pulled back the curtain on the “chaotic” scene aboard Air Force One the day before the Patriots’ visit. Flying back from an event in Wisconsin, Trump reportedly “grew angry” and even paid Patriots owner (and longtime friend) Robert Kraft a phone call. Here’s how the Post described the entire episode: Trump grew angry in April 2017 when Tom Brady said he planned to skip the White House visit with the Patriots, huddling … [Read more...] about Here’s how Donald Trump reportedly reacted to Tom Brady’s decision to not visit the White House last year

EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. — The client wanted a 10-day house rental in the Hamptons that offered privacy and proximity to East Hampton Airport. Several important guests would be visiting. The real estate broker handling the account lined up three options. The first one she showed the client’s manager was a farmhouse built in the 1800s. The door frames were deemed too low. “We would cut to the chase much better if I knew who it was,” said the broker, Renee Gallanti, recalling how she was not told at first who the client was for that house-hunting mission in 2016. “At first they tried to give very little information at all. And after we got to the first house and the ceilings were too low, we shifted gears.” The client, she soon learned, was Kevin Durant, the 7-foot NBA All-Star. He was about to become a free agent for the first time — and would soon find himself at the heart of a courtship unlike any the NBA had ever seen. Durant ultimately picked the … [Read more...] about Inside the house where Kevin Durant hosted Tom Brady, the Celtics

President Donald Trump may have been too “busy” to buy his wife a birthday present last week, but he did reportedly have time to chat up Bill Belichick about his favorite NFL quarterback. Buried in a New York Times report Wednesday was the detail that Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly, who by most accounts has a strained relationship with the president, was astounded by the amount of time Trump spent talking to the Patriots coach last week about “the status of Tom Brady.” Per the Times: At a breakfast event last week for Senator Tom Cotton, Republican of Arkansas, Mr. Kelly marveled that Mr. Trump had spent a long time the day before on the phone with Bill Belichick, the New England Patriots coach, talking about the status of Tom Brady, the star quarterback, according to two people familiar with his remarks, one of whom was present. The Times did not elaborate any further on the substance or the exact length of Trump and Belichick’s conversation. … [Read more...] about Donald Trump reportedly spent ‘a long time’ talking to Bill Belichick last week about Tom Brady

The visiting New England Patriots were just short of the marker, and now head coach Bill Belichick had a choice. It was fourth down and they were sitting at their own 45 yard line, with just inside of two minutes left, both in the game and in this dispiriting season. If nothing else, dignity was at stake here. The book said to punt. Instead, Belichick looked out at Drew Bledsoe and told his quarterback to stay on the field. Why not just put an end to it with one play here? On the CBS telecast, the announcers perked up.
