Tom Brady Urges World to Turn Off Lights for One Hour, But Not During a Pats Night Game

From the “What happens when athletes marry enviro-wacko supermodels” file:

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen and husband, NFL great Tom Brady have recently shown their support for WWF’s Earth Hour by filming two videos that encourage people around the world to join them in turning off their lights for Earth Hour on Saturday, March 27th at 8:30 pm.

They’re still peddling the man-made “climate change” hoax and presumably have settled on going dark as the best way to make sure nobody can see Al Gore pick-pocketing the world:

I hereby not only pledge to turn all my lights off for one hour that day, but for a full eight hours — just like I do every night.

If Tom really wants to save some energy on lights, he’ll stop worrying about the lamp in my living room and instead maybe cancel a few of those night games at Gillette Stadium:

Or maybe if there were fewer lights on Tom’s wife, the polar ice caps could be saved:

“Do as I say, not as I do” sound familiar?

Shut up and play! Those of us in the Nashville area have a hard time seeing the stars at night due to the lights at Gore’s mansion and they think this will make a difference. For the second year in a row, I will have every possible light and electric appliance cranked up that night – thanks for reminding me which night it is, moron.

Being a Mass-$%le and a Pats fan, this pains me. I know to most of these celebrities it sounds innocent enough, but it really makes them sound silly. I like Tom Brady and for the most part he is a no-nonsense kind of guy. He accepts responsibility for himself, his play, takes less money then he could from the Pats, and works extremely hard at his profession.

I beg you Tom. Leave the moonbaty-ness and advocacy to your wife. At least she has the “Supermodel” excuse. No one expects her to have a reasonable or well informed opinion. (I realize that that may have sounded a bit sexist. But cmon, she IS a supermodel. A whole industry rooted in Sexism and objectification.)

Does this idea include turning off the TV?

Maybe Brady really is Matt Damon.

GO JETS.

Shoot, that reminds me – I need to get some more Incandescent Light bulbs to make sure I can light up the apartment for earth hour. I certainly don’t want to have to leave one fixture dark, just because I didn’t could get the highest wattage bulb I could get for it.

Gee, I wonder what size their house is and how often they fly around in private jets.
Go away, Tom Brady and don’t come back until your carbon footprint is as small as mine.
