In Response to Re: Tom Brady is a kept man
One note on the manning comments. I've been coming to this site for years and one of the non-stop put downs of Manning is his face. I don't get it? Are most of you men in the closet and secretly dreaming of a date with Tom Brady? Was it the ad of him cuddling a baby goat that did it for you? Right or wrong cities frequently are pegged with a personality, and I always thought Boston was a tough guy town, but I suppose I was wrong. A tough guy wouldn't really care what another guy looked like. And the last thing a tough guy would care about is what a professional football player looked like. Maybe Boston has become an "enlightened city" and had to shed its tough guy image to get there. With the way this board talks about Manning's physical features, I've decided that must be the case. Some of you mock like I would expect a makeup artist or hairdresser to. Looking forward to football season.

Might be wrong (and it might be predated) but Bill Simmons on ESPN has often commented on the 'Manning Face', not that he is ugly, but that he has a specific face which seems to appear at his moments of despair where he has failed to bring his team the whole way and doesn't seem to fully understand where and how that has occured - see, AFC 2003, 2004 especially. He had recently written about his belief that it has disappeared, only to see a surprise re-appearance in this years Superbowl.
Of course, the comments might just come from the fact that he is ugly............
(Although subconciously, male fixation on sporting / political or other idols or status figures is affected by their ability to perceive them being that individual and experiencing the life, status and responsibilities of that individual, hence it has been perceived that more 'handsome' individuals encourage greater appreciation and worship, not only from females, but males also...........laymans - if you want to imagine being a QB, or want to look up to a QB, it's not likely to be the ugly one....nothing homsexual neccessarily about it, just a construct of human nature. The dissatisfaction in comparison is therefore understandly one thing that may be referred to in illustrating differences between competing tribes / QBs - much in the same way I have seen Indy fans refer to Brady as a 'pretty boy' / 'male model', they are acknowledging the underlying social construct and interpretation of beauty and that Brady reflects that more than Manning does)
However, getting back to the initial point of this post:
1) Hell yes, so what he is kept. Gisele can keep me, or do whatever she likes, whenever she wants.
2) Whatever about Manning's face. He's not doing too bad himself.
