The only thing more suspenseful than the actual terms of suspension as it relates to Tom Brady, is how the New York papers will respond.
Around these parts there’s a normal order of business as it relates to our sports.
Breaking news comes out during the day, which you might hear by radio, internet or TV. In any fashion you receive your news, it gets blasted all over the place.
On Monday, the news that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will, indeed, be suspended for four games in 2016 for his role in Deflategate spread like wildfire.
We knew that.
We also knew the second (and extremely hilarious) part of this news cycle was yet to come.
What would the New York papers do with this golden nugget of info?
Obviously, Brady has been a much sought-after target for both the New York Post and New York Daily News in the past, so, understanding that the same treatment would come again is an easy assumption.
As far as the New York Daily News is concerned, with its Tuesday morning sports cover they hit Tom with the classy, yet accurate “Right in the Balls” headline.

Not their best work, but certainly worth noting.
