    Word has it that Tedy Bruschi's latest "injury" is yet another front to cover the fact that his services were needed once again in the Middle East, to help our government in its war on terror. During training camp he also was called upon by Bob Kraft to assist in building consensus among owners for choosing the new NFL commissioner. Slowly but surely, it's becoming known worldwide that Bruschi's astounding physical skills, charisma and incredible brain power will go down in folklore as rivaling the legends of Paul Bunyan, Buddha, and Moses, as a man among men. For instance, it's a little known fact that it actually was Tedy Bruschi who rescued Ben Roethlisberger from certain death during Ben's infamous motorcycle crash, and who also saved the elderly woman whose car he hit from the wrath of an angry lynch mob. As soon as this season is over, Tedy will be called upon by an international commission to address the crisis of global warming. Anyone else with insightful anecdotes regarding Tedy Bruschi -- The Man, The Legend -- please share them here.

    Well, Chuck tried to kick one of those puppies that Tedy saved in the parking lot last year.

    Tedy never embarrasses a coach who commands respect. Tedy would win by doing everything Ditka told him to do better than any player Ditka ever coached. Ditka would quickly realize he could not frustrate or intimidate Tedy through sheer coaching ability. He would eventually bow down to Bruschi as the ultimate coachable athlete.

    Tedy made Fabio believe it wasn't butter.

    He has also travelled through time to redirect the asteroid that was originally slated to miss planet Earth to ensure a solid, direct hit. His foresight allowed for the resulting blast responsible for the mass extinction of dinosaurs and other, giant man-eaters. This small act laid the groundwork for the possibility of human proliferation. As a sidenote, the immense power the asteroid's impact is reputedly responsible for his interest in football, when it was eventually invented.

    There is no such thing as global warming, Tedy was cold so he turned the sun up

    Tedy intentionally caused his own stroke so he could bring publicity to the American Stroke Association, resulting in millions of dollars in charitable donations.

    Tedy volunteered to have his wrist broken in TC to raise awareness of the exsistance of the fragile yet misunderstood human scaphoid bone - and also so that Monty Beisel could be exposed once and for all before the season began thus facilitating the un-retirement of Junior Seau.

    BTW - Schefter says scaphiod fragility aside, Tedy reported for duty last Sunday expecting to play...which is probably a very good indication that he will in fact play in New Joisey this week. :D

    All true, but a small correction... I'm sure you meant to say, "when He eventually invented it."

    Your mistake is totally understandable though, due to Tedy's divine humility, he made sure to erase all knowlege of his creation of football, as well as the earth itself and life as we know it, from the memories of mortal mankind.

    Is there a Patriots hall of fame? Oh nevermind, they will build it themselves and drive the nails with their bare hands. :D

    T-Shirt, whilst it is contrary for me to refute that Tedy did, in fact, invent football, I think it should be noted that he merely influenced the invention. Yes, he was involved in the Mesopotamian experience, but during the formalization of the rules in the 19th century, he was more interested in the future aspect of entertainment of the masses, rather than technical druthers.

    It as if you forget that a modern interpretation of Tedy's idea had implications on us, as witnesses. Tedy foresees these rifts and plans ahead. In order for us to appreciate his wonderful game, we forget the importance of the groundwork he had to lay during the this time. Whislt his devoted followers, Walter Ebbs Ellis and Walter Camp, et al, were once considered neo-phytes or just plain kooks, Tedy re-assured them the idea was worthwhile.

    I put forth that Tedy is merely the architect. He designed the game but did not actually invent it. Remember, although Magellan is credited with first circumnavigating the globe, he had hundreds of crewmen with him. They were also the first to circumnavigate the globe.

    To cut a long story short. Yes, Tedy did invent football. But he was merely a manager. At the the time that football picked up in a popular way, he was actually spending his time laying the groundwork for its entertainment value in the future. This involved overseeing the progress of Tchaikovsky and W.C. Fields. He oversaw the opening of Madison Square Garden. He funded Gilbert and Sulliven and F.W. Woolworth (to enhance an idea of spending). He also fathered Abe Lincoln during this time which had implications beyong my understanding.

    Sometimes a legend lends itself to hyperbole. Yes, he did invent football, but let us not forget the other people that lended their talents. As Pats fans, we should follow in Tedy's footsteps.

    But would you not agree that if God and Satan played a game of football against eachother, Tedy would be the field? The turf that they played upon? The stadium that surrounded them? The sky and the sun overhead that shone down upon them?

    Are we not Tedy? Is not there a little Tedy in all of us, as there is in each blade of grass?

    Meditate on that, grasshopper, then explain to me why there is no Tedy.
