I Have to Find the Pic of Inez

NFL Network just showed Inez in her wedding dress. I should have been recording it. Man, is she hot! I’ll look for it and when I find it, I’ll post it here.

Inane Question from Super Bowl Media Day, Part I

At Super Bowl Media Day at University of Phoenix Stadium, we have our very first inane question. A woman named Inez, wearing a wedding dress asked Tom Brady if he would marry her.
