Star QB fights climate denial: Tom Brady beat the Colts this Saturday night.
In his typically modest way, he also fought climate denial.
How did Mr. Brady do that? Consider this passage from the sports section of today’s New York Times:
ARATON (1/13/14): If you had the Patriots scoring six touchdowns without Tom Brady throwing for any in a 43-22 thrashing of the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night, there’s a handicapping job waiting for you somewhere...Why was Saturday evening’s game played “in a New England downpour?” Because after our recent Arctic freeze, temperatures have been much higher than normal on the East Coast in the past several days.
In a New England downpour, a hard reign fell on Andrew Luck and the Colts at Gillette Stadium. Luck was intercepted by the suspect Patriots defense as many times as Blount—an undrafted fourth-year running back—crossed the goal line while running for 166 yards, or 15 more than he gained last season in Tampa.
On Saturday, the high temperature in Boston was 59. Normal high for that date: 36 degrees.
Mr. Brady got famous beating teams in the snow. Saturday night, he played in hard rain.
Whenever it snows these days, we hear idiotic claims about the end of global warming. Saturday night, Mr. Brady was fighting the Colts—and The Big Stupid itself.
