My anti-non-baseball-player-signing-baseballs soapbox is well worn by now, but here's one more, this time from Tom Brady. It would seem to be relevant now because he nearly tied the record for most touchdown passes in a single game last night against Denver. It must be asked, though: Is a Tom Brady-signed baseball ever really relevant?

As Bernard M. Corbett and I wrote in here in our chapter on Y.A. Tittle's seven-touchdown pass game, "Will anybody ever throw seven in a game again? ... Propriety suggests that teams not make an obvious showing of piling on points via the air game. Unless that stops being the prevailing attitude, another seven-TD performance seems unlikely, at least not in a blowout. It could occur in a shootout game, however. A 52-49 contest could produce such a showing for either winner or loser, but those games are few and far between."
