INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Tom Brady was one of the last ones out of the shower, perhaps hoping some extra hot water would help take the sting out of a crushing Super Bowl loss.

To understand fully the quandary I faced Saturday, I'll have to volunteer that the first time I remember my cell phone ringing while fishing was in 2007.

Though I was fishing and I risked setting a precedent, I answered. After all, it was my mom and it was about dinner.
Over the years I've been writing this column, I often refer to the fact that just being outdoors is good therapy for me.

The theory behind such restrictive gun measures seems to be based on the idea that if it's harder to obtain a gun, then violent crime rates will drop. Ironically, the exact opposite has been proven true time after time.
The season began with fans brawling in the stands, and a quarterback who didn't seem worth fighting for.
I could feel it deep down in my fisherman soul. Apparently it showed on my face too.
