DeflateGate: Tom Brady is a Juicy Mango; Throw Rocks at Him

New, comments

From one all time great to another: don't be a juicy mango.

I think we have found our absolute best comment on this whole DeflateGate scenario, and I think we don't have to go any further. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a mango and everyone just wants to throw rocks at him.

This, of course, comes from another All Time New England athlete: Pedro Martinez.

"In the Dominican we say you don’t throw rocks to the bad mangoes, or the green mangoes," Martinez said in an interview with WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche. "You go after the ripe ones. They’re nice and sweet and yellow and those are the ones you go after. So I would say Brady is one of those ripe mangoes, really juicy, and good, and he is going to get a lot of rocks thrown at him.

"Every one of the Hall of Famers will have a teammate or someone say ‘he’s as good as a human being as he is a player. Brady is no exception. Hall of Famer for sure. If he retired today he is a Hall of Famer. Good looking, smart."

This is perfect. Tom Brady is a nice, sweet, good looking, smart, juicy, yellow mango, and everyone is just trying to throw rocks at him...to eat him?

I'm not sure. I think the aim of throwing rocks at the mangoes is so you can better utilize them, not to destroy their career and everything they've worked for. I don't really know.

Please don't throw rocks at Tom Brady.
