Cutting through the absurdity

Never thought that this video would cause such a stir. But it looks like the exchange between Tom Brady and Kobe Bryant did enough to get the attention of a national talk show — Pardon the Interruption — the other day.

And Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser think the hoopla over all this is a little much as well, as you can see in the video above.

My take? Tom Brady’s from California, lives in LA, and resides in a very elite class of athlete that few others inhabit, but Kobe is a part of.

So he’s friends with Kobe? Shocker, right? Yeah … not exactly.
