Are those some sour grapes we're sensing, Tom Brady?
The New England Patriots quarterback was ousted from the playoffs last weekend by the Denver Broncos, and said this week that he "could care less" about watching the Broncos take on the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl this weekend.
"I don't have much of a rooting interest, truthfully," Brady told Boston radio station WEEI. "Those games are hard to watch. I don't really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season's over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That's pretty much how I feel."

NASCAR Tries to Become a Bit More Exciting
NASCAR is already an edge-of-your-seat, exciting action sport, no question about it. Okay, maybe some questions about it.
But if you think the sport is all about watching cars drive around in circles, you're in for a treat.
Starting after the Daytona 500, NASCAR is changing its qualifying rules so that cars will have to race around in circles against one another, rather than alone, in order to qualify for big races, according to USA Today. Hang onto your seats!
Utah Student Pays Tuition in Dollar Bills
The tuition is too darn high! So University of Utah student Luq Mughal did something about it: he paid his tuition bill Tuesday with 2,000 single dollar bills.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Mughal is protesting a hike in tuition that has seen prices more than double within the past decade, from $2,742 in 2002-2003 to $6,5111 this year. Mughal said he spends weekends working in order to pay for tuition and books. He's hoping to send a message with his dolla dolla bills.
