One of the benefits of not starting a football game since high school? You don’t have to worry about getting injured by hard hit. Or in the case of Matt Cassel, worry about someone damaging your pretty, pretty face. That’s what the BOSTON GLOBE explores today, as they report that female Patriots fans are finding Cassel to be an adequate replacement for Tom Brady’s ruggedly handsome good looks.
Although Harper’s Bazaar contributor and fashion commentator Mary Alice Stephenson said that Cassel “isn’t Tom Brady” but he could be with a sharp suit, a good haircut, nice shoes and a pair of Levi’s. Which makes this start to sound like some sort of weird cross between Varsity Blues and the final 10 minutes of The Breakfast Club where Molly Ringwald turns Ally Sheedy into a stunning beauty by combing her hair and applying some rouge.
