All the world is abuzz with Tom Brady's new 'do.
No, it is not a buzz cut, nor a shag, though he has been there and done that.
A few years ago he tried to Bart Simpson look, which apparently appealed to him and his hausfrau, a well-known dilettante of beauty.
Tom has gone all out in his annual appearance at the New York Metropolitan Opera gala. Whether he enjoyed watching the new version of Benjamin Britten's Billy Budd, we shall never know.
There were no media reports that his snoring annoyed nearby attendees.
However, the media reports of his new coiffure has set the fashion world ablaze, even more than when Michael Jackson set his hair afire back in the old days.
Tom has chosen a new look that befits his role as a football icon.
His hair is now shaped in the form of a football, all pointy and off kilter. We suspect that a football helmet will just simply ruin his hair unless there is enough gel to keep it cemented in place.
Tom seems to have more to work with since last year's secret visit to a Rhode Island hair specialist. Right now his hair lists to the left worse than the Costa Concordia in a shallow bay.
The Justin Bieber look has gone the way of the Beatles and Animals. We wonder if Justin Timberlake and the Bieb will follow the hirsute leader on and off the fashion field.
At the least we can expect Julian Edelman to follow the leader.
In a world where Boston sports goes to the mat over Wes Welker's mustache, or Rob Gronkowski's choice of footwear, Tom is showing the whelps he hasn't lost it. His hair remains in place and ready for the kickoff.
