I admit that I don't follow football that closely, but I'm a little confused about the all the hubbub still surrounding Tom Brady. Yesterday I noticed that Boston.com has a photo spread titled “On the town with Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen" that has more photos than most Red Sox albums. That says a lot in this town.
Personally, Brady's status as a cripple knocked him way down in my book. I guess I've been more accepting than most Pats fans. My mentality is out with the old and in with the new.
With that ladies, meet Matt Cassel.
Personally, I was disappointed with the lack of stalkerish gossip following Cassel online. So, for the benefit of Boston Bachelorettes, I decided to do a little investigative research myself. Unfortunately, my google search came up with no trendy restaurant or bar sightings and even the Herald and Metro were slacking on their dishing. The only good scoop that I came across was Cassel singing some lousy karaoke to Backstreet Boys. Hardly scandalous.
My biggest finding/letdown is that Cassel is married to his college sweetheart, Lauren Killian. The two met at USC, where she was a former volleyball star and he sat on the sidelines as QB.
The good news is that the athletic stud gene runs in the family. Matt’s older brother Jack plays for the Houston Astros and his younger brother Justin plays for the Chicago White Sox. Future mother-in-law potential even looks bright…his Mom won an Emmy for her work as a TV set decorator.
