Though it's still only the preseason, Tom Brady showed up to training camp on Thursday with his luxurious locks in mid-season form:
Today, during his first interview of the training camp, I asked Brady about it. So... did they not have barbers in California?
"No, no," Brady said, smiling. "Different look this year."
Fair enough. Then, I couldn't resist...
Was it Justin Bieber's look that gave you the idea?
Brady started shaking his head and laughing to himself. Yeah, I'm an idiot.
"Bill Belichick's trying something new, I'm trying something new," Brady said, referring Belichick's decision to wipe the Gillette Stadium walls clean. "It's a new year, gotta try something different."
Ah, the excitement of training camp.
