Tarnish on the Golden Boy

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has lived quite the charmed life since entering the NFL in 2000. He’s won four Super Bowls, married Giselle and can get away with wearing Uggs, but on Monday, the league’s golden child was handed a four-game suspension for his involvement in the Deflategate scandal.  Don’t cry too hard for Brady, though. The 10-time Pro-Bowler is still married to a supermodel and his merchandise sales are up 100 percent.

The Next American Idol is…
The 14th American Idol hails from our friendly neighbor Connecticut. At 29, Nick Fradiani was the show’s oldest contest and this was his last chance to walk away with coveted recording contract. When the time came, Ryan Seacrest declared that the nation chose the Guilford, Conn., native the winner over early favorite Clark Beckham.  After wiping away tears, Fradiani belted out “Beautiful Life.” Get ready to hear a whole lot of that song because it will be the theme song for the FIFA Women’s World Cup in June.

Food will also be themed no word yet on any themed cocktails though
