Reggie Wayne Likes Grand Entrances

Wayne one-upped his first appearance from last year, when he arrived in a helicopter.
Trouble For Tom and Gisele?
The always-reputable Star Magazine has a report about the crumbling marriage of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.

As a Patriots fan, I'm much more interested in this relationship staying strong.

Nick Young On Shooting
