Report: Tom Brady Could Be Victim of Male-Pattern Baldness
So it's with some hesitation that I pass along the National Enquirer report that Dreamboat was seen outside the Leonard Hair Transplant Association in Cranston, R.I., on Nov. 9.
"He spent over an hour consulting with Dr. Leonard before he slipped out the back door and drove off," the Enquirer reported. And a source told the tabloid that, "Tom wants help with his thinning hair and bald spot."
The Boston Herald has more:
Back in 2008, the New York Post reported that Tom was seen at a Manhattan hair-restoration emporium a few days before embarking for Arizona and Super Bowl XLII . Which was a whole other tragedy. . . .
At the time, the very same Dr. Leonard told us that 12 appeared to be thinning around the crown and that because his dad, Tom Sr., is bald, Brady could inherit the chrome-dome gene. "The apple doesn't fall far from the proverbial baldness tree," Dr. Leonard said.
Make of this what you will. Whatever stage of male-pattern baldness Brady currently finds himself, it could be much, much worse. It's one thing to be compared to (or clowned by) Justin Bieber. It's something else entirely to look like this.
Also: having Gisele as your wife mitigates any concerns about losing your hair. (And don't forget, she has final say on Brady's mop, real or otherwise.)
* A special thanks to Brad Childress for unwittingly playing a part in the Photoshop job above. If not for his bald dome we might not have an accurate depiction of what Brady could look like in 50 years.
