    Say it ain't so Tom Brady!!!

    in Rock Music

    It was announced today that Tom Brady will be suspended 4 games for his role in "DEFLATE GATE". What a disgrace!! Come on folks, stuff like this is always going on in sports but because it is Tom Brady and the Patriots this is getting blown way of of proportion. Tune in Thursday to hear me rant about how Tom Brady a got 4 game suspension and yet  Ray Rices intitial suspension (pre-video) was for 2 games. The NFL hit the team (Patriots) hard with loss of picks and a montetary fine, but the real loss maybe to Tom Brady's image. Call in and tell me if you think this hurts Tom or Not.


    The Rangers / Capitals seies will be over by the time this shows airs, so we can dissect the hard fought series and if the Rangers are lucky enough to win gane # 7 at home (Wednesday) than we can break down the upcoming series for you.


    The Yankees remain hot as they took 2 out of 3 from the Orioles (screw Buck Showalter) and CC Sabathia got his first win of the season tonite agaist the Rays in Tampa on monday night.


    The Mets are playing well depsite a lack of hitting and poor fielding. Bartolo Colon has 6 wins already and Matt Harvey has been great except for the loss this past weekend. 


     


    Lots to talk about in the world of Music, with the final episode of That Metal show from last wekend. Lots of music news to go around for everyone.
