Let's clear the air here: late-night comedy in 2018 is bad (in my opinion, and in the opinion of others who appreciate comedy as a genre more so than serious shows). No one comes close to the greatness of Mass. native Jay Leno or Johnny Carson. Those guys were legends. These new guys aren't my kinds of guys.
You can appreciate Jimmy Fallon in "Fever Pitch" but think he's not good at what he does. Still, when someone from the New England Patriots comes on one of their shows, you're still drawn to it. You still want to see what Tom Brady says even if you don't like Stephen Colbert's shtick.
And what Tom Brady did on Colbert's show this week was actually pretty boss, as the kids say.
Brady had a chugging contest on-air. I'm pretty sure you know who won already...

I mean, did anyone really expect him to lose to that nerd? No. It wasn't going to happen. You know why? Because Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all-time. Brady doesn't even drink and yet, he was still able to crush that guy in a contest. It just goes to show Brady's athletic ability and GOATness transfer to other things outside of the football field.
Let's be honest, Brady could probably host a better show than anyone on television right now. Him drinking one beer once went viral. It helps that he was great at drinking it, but the guy is a superstar in every sense of the word.
Next, I want to see him and Bill Belichick have a drinking contest, except it wouldn't only be one beer. Give each of them a 6-pack of Sam Adams bottles--with no bottle openers--and see who can finish all of them first.
Make it happen, somebody. We need it.
