Donald Trump talked with Belichick about Brady’s status

  Donald Trump talked with Belichick about Brady’s status Count Donald Trump among the crowd curious about Tom Brady’s status. The president was on the phone with Bill Belichick last week to talk about Brady, the New York Times reports. The nugget of information was published by The Times in an article on Tuesday about chief of staff John F. Kelly’s tough relationship with the president. From the article: Mr. Kelly, for his part, is sanguine about how little control he has over how the president chooses to spend his time. At a breakfast event last week for Senator Tom Cotton, Republican of Arkansas, Mr. Kelly marveled that Mr. Trump had spent a long time the day before on the phone with Bill Belichick, the New England Patriots coach, talking about the status of Tom Brady, the star quarterback, according to two people familiar with his remarks, one of whom was present. After an offseason of questions about how committed Brady was to the Patriots for 2018, the quarterback’s agent said early last week that Brady would play in 2018 and beyond. Then on Monday, Brady confirmed he will play next season and plans to play into his 40s. Whether Trump had any role in those announcements being made — and you know he’ll claim credit — you can’t blame him for trying to get the inside scoop on one of the biggest stories of the offseason.

President Donald Trump is a rich man. This is known. Just how much the president is worth remains up for interpretation. But obviously, he has no issues throwing cash into some rather random projects.

Just ask former tennis legend John McEnroe, who recently noted that Trump offered him a cool $1 million to play Serena Williams in what would have been this generation’s version of the Battle of the Sexes.

“I was calling a match and suddenly I get this envelope and it’s from Donald Trump,” McEnroe said on In Depth with Graham Bensinger. “It’s never been something where I was like, I want to go play a woman in a match.”

Partisan politics aside, this might be one of the best ideas Trump has ever had. Sure it became before he was president, but it’s a dandy.

Known for his outspoken personality during a career that spanned four decades, McEnroe going up against one of the Williams’ sisters would have been all sorts of great.

Alas, it’s not to be. Instead, McEnroe has apparently turned into a stick in the mud. That’s no fun for anyone.

American tennis greats say Canadians could benefit from a 'brotherly rivalry' .
Canadian tennis is on the upswing, and three key men's singles players - Milos Raonic, Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Allissiame - will benefit from a 'healthy rivalry', according to American tennis greats John McEnroe and Jim Courier, who say "players from the same nation can push, inspire, and show each other the way forward." Last week, rising star Denis Shapovalov defeated Raonic in their first-ever meeting, taking a 6-4, 6-4 win in the third-round of the Madrid Open. When next week's rankings come out, the 19-year-old will surpass Raonic as the top-ranked Canadian.
