You'll not only go blind

Patriots quarterback and admitted porn aficionado Tom Brady will have surgery to repair his injured groin. Club officials were unclear whether Brady suffered the sports hernia playing football or enjoying his hobby.

Brady played the second half of the season with the injury according to information obtained in the Boston Globe. Brady gets ragged on a lot here, but as the Bish would say, "Think about it."

Brady played half the season with a sports injury and never complained or went public with it. Brady compiled a 92.3 passer rating, throwing for a career-high 4,110 yards with 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Then you have Donovan McNabb. The sports hernia injury of McNabb was the leading story in the NFL midway through the season. The Eagles quarterback sold the injury like Shawn Michaels sold for Bret Hart in Summer Slam in 1997. McNabb finally whined enough, garnered enough sympathy and eventually took off the final two months of the season.

So two guys with similar injuries, one leads his team to the playoffs; the other takes an early vacation. One wins the Super Bowl. The other pukes his chunky soup on the field.

It's almost enough to forgive Terrell Owens. Almost. Discuss it in the Hater Nation Forums.
