Patriots Quarterback Sues Over Cadillac Playoff Ad

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - New England Patriots (news) quarterback Tom Brady (news) has sued General Motors Inc. for $2 million, saying the carmaker ran ads he made under an expired contract to promote its Cadillac brand.

Brady, who last weekend led his National Football League team to their third Super Bowl berth in four years, claims in his lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court that GM ran newspaper ads in Texas and Boston featuring him for a month after his contract had expired Jan. 1, 2004.

In the suit, filed on Monday, Brady said GM could not resist riding his fame as most valuable player of the 2002 and 2004 Super Bowls to plug its luxury cars after he twice refused to renew a 2003 promotional contract.

GM officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

Reading the headline, I couldn't figure out why Brady would sue the Patriot's general manager. Seemed not conducive to long-term employmnet.

Then I read the article. Consternation turned to elucidation. The mist parted.

Good - I'm not the only one who thought that.

Mr. No-bottom-teeth himself. (which strangely enough the picture does nothing to diminish the rumor...and I bet Jim Coombs has bottom teeth.)

I'm sure if he went to tOSU, Cbus would think he is much better looking and maybe even let him borrow some of his lavender floral bodywash. ;)

Alot of people have "no bottom teeth syndrome" when they smile. I'd be more turned off if they had no upper teeth!

No bottom tooth smile or not, Mr. Brady is mighty fine.

It's caused by an overbite, and it also causes one eating a hogey to eat the top of the sub bun at a faster rate than the bottom of the sub bun. It took me years to figure that out, I just thought the dentist was trying to sell unnecessary braces.

So........me and Tom Brady, running mates with no bottom teeth when they smile....I do try to keep select company.
