In an eerie Instagram post from beyond the grave, John Madden seemed to announce that he, like the recently un-retired Tom Brady, just wasn’t done with the game.
“Boom! I’m lookin’ out my earhole. I’m at the hashmarks of hell. I’ve just signed a contract with NBC! I’m not done! Also, brrrraaaaains.”
Some have theorized that Tom Brady’s decision to return to Tampa Bay, following his previous announcement that he would retire, created a break in the spacetime continuum that disrupted reality as we know it, opening the gates of the underworld so that all who would please could come back from the dead to once again demand what their Earthly forms once denied them.
Turns out John Madden was the only one who wanted to do it.
