REAL LIFE DEMENTOR:

Uh Oh: Tom Brady Is Celebrating Again (KEVIN CLARK, Dec. 18, 2014, WSJ)

Catching touchdowns from Brady, the New England Patriots' superstar quarterback, is the easy part this season. The hard part is dealing with his celebrations.

"You've got to--got to--be prepared for his head-butts and high-fives, because they are coming...You've got to brace yourself. It doesn't look like much coming at you but it's intense," said Patriots wide receiver Brian Tyms. "If he throws the ball 50 yards and you run 50 yards and score, he's going to run all 50 yards and head-butt the hell out of you."

The message is clear: Keep your head on a swivel, because Brady might be pumped up.

As the 37-year-old Brady has gotten older, teammates say he has developed a type of celebration that calls for constant preparedness: the random head-butt, high-five or both. Brady has thrown 391 career touchdown passes, the fifth-most all-time, yet somehow he is getting more excited than before.

Normally, anyone would want to be seen with Brady, a three-time Super Bowl winner who is arguably the coolest guy in the NFL. But if Brady is fired up, it is best to keep a safe distance.

Almost every teammate--defensive players included--has been the victim of a sudden Brady head butt this season.

He's a walking concussion crisis.
