OK, so Stetson had a launch party the other night for its new cologne "All American Stetson" and our boy Tom Brady was beamed in for a video conference. (The QB endorses Stetson.) You can find write-ups of his remarks on various celebrity and fashion web sites - like here and here - but we've done one better. Here are Brady's words turned into a poem. Call it "Smells Like Team Spirit."

Sexiness is whether you’re comfortable
in your own skin.
The sexiest people are always
those who are the most confident.
I always feel great
when a woman
has bought me a fragrance.
It’s safer when a woman
goes out and buys
a scent for a man.
My father was a Classic Stetson man.
For his entire life,
he wore Classic
Stetson. He was my role model.
I follow and live
up to those expectations.
I’m always shampooing,
which I hear is not great for you.
I always use body lotion,
especially on my hands.
As an athlete I’m always protective
of my hands.
Obviously, I brush my teeth.
