I don't need to talk to any player or staff member about football air pressure, they all know the pressure Tom Brady likes his balls to be at.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"People can be my friends who have lifestyles that are not necessary my lifestyle, I don't drink alcohol, but gosh, a lot of my friends, maybe most of them do. I don't use profanity, but believe me, I've got a lot of friends who do. Some people really like classical music and ballet, opera -- it's not my cup of tea."
- Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), on having gay friends while opposing gay marriage.

WHAT THEY SAID,
"I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee.

This is football not politics I expect better handling and reporting.
