In perhaps the most random post I’ve ever written for howiGit’s blog, we’re going to be discussing two completely unrelated topics — Dunkin Donuts’ blueberry waffle sandwich with maple sausage and The Brady 6 documentary, which recently aired on ESPN. Let’s start with the breakfast sandwich….
First off, shame on you Dunkin Donuts. You always do this to me. You create some delicious sounding breakfast concoction, advertise the hell out of it, and lure me in (OK, I’m a sucker). The problem is, you never deliver. I ate this sandwich for the first time about 60 seconds ago, after paying $5.55 for the combo deal. What a rip off. I ripped open the brown paper bag to find a “waffle” slightly larger than a half dollar that looked something like my grandmother’s wrinkled face covered in sunspots (blueberries). The sausage was decent, but this sandwich is pitiful — I’d be ashamed to sell this thing if I was Mr. CEO Donut. My stomach currently feels like Katy Perry’s chest in her “Firework” video. World beware, you’re much better off going with a bacon, egg and cheese on a croissant next time your shopping for breakfast sandwiches.
On a happier note, I finally saw The Brady 6 last night — ESPN’s documentary on the 6 quarterbacks drafted ahead of “all-time great” Tom Brady. A big stink was made out of this documentary, as Tom Brady cried. To be honest, he cried more than I thought he was going to based on what I had heard. That said, he did not “cry because he was picked in the 6th round” as everyone (New Yorkers) have been saying. He cried when he was talking about his parents being supportive of him on the draft day when he thought he was going to be bypassed. He cried because his parents were good parents and had his back — which is a much different thing. In my opinion, he still shouldn’t have been crying in the first place, but as I said before, when you are Tom Brady you can do whatever you damn well please.
Far more interesting to me were these two nuggets of wisdom from the documentary:
1) Marc Bulger was the fastest quarterback in NFL history to 1000 completions. Seriously? Who the hell knew that?
2) The quarterback drafted immediately before Brady (#183 in the draft as opposed to Brady’s #199), Spergon Wynn, had a 47% completion percentage in his final college season before being drafted, coupled with 13 interceptions and 12 touchdowns. How did this guy ever get drafted? Are you kidding me? Brady was already known as the comeback kid!
Crazy stuff. Check out The Brady 6, skip on the blueberry waffle sandwich. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
