MIAMI GARDENS, FL - JANUARY 03: (EDITORS NOTE: Image has been converted to black and white) Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots looks on before the game against the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium on January 3, 2016 in Miami Gardens, Florida. (Photo by Chris Trotman/Getty Images)

Okay I must admit…I feel a little better that Tom wasn’t NECESSARILY trolling us with his IG post. I mean, he was but he wasn’t. The post definitely got everyone talking and freaking out BUT it was all for a Superbowl commercial for Hulu. And I must say, the marketing team at Hulu are a bunch of geniuses.  Geniuses for plotting this whole thing and getting EVERYONE talking and now tweeting and posting about their product.  Oh, and as for Tom’s message: “I’m not goin’ anywhere” THAT DOESN’T MEAN HE’S STAYING WITH THE PATRIOTS! It just means he’s not leaving the NFL. The countless amount of people on my timeline saying things like “Phew, he’s staying!” is alarming. Oh, including my own mother who texted me afterwards saying “I knew he wasn’t leaving.” Let’s hope those people aren’t disappointed again when he makes his big announcement.
