Tom Brady’s Sister’s Husband

Kevin Youkilis powered his team’s first grand slam of the season with a shot carved to the opposite field, but that wasn’t the most life-changing event of the week for him. The man at the hot corner didn’t have cold feet when it came to getting legally hitched this time around. By marrying Tom Brady’s sister Julie he became the second-best athlete in the family. Should Youkilis’s new wife change her surname? Julie Youkilis has a pleasing sound, like the crack of the bat on a soundly clouted ball.

Whose kids will be more athletically gifted Nomar Garciaparra and Mia Hamm’s tots or the Youkilis’s offspring?

Philip Humber was a touted prospect whose star faded and was subsequently shuttled from team to team — four teams in six years. His first team, the Mets, selected him as the third pick in the first round of the 2004 draft right after the Tigers picked Justin Verlander. Verlander has All-Star appearances, a Cy Young award, an MVP, and even two no-hitters, but no perfect game.

Humber seemed to finally hit his groove in the big leagues by throwing the 21st perfect game on April 21. They counted it even though it was against the Seattle Mariners. He found himself on “Late Show with David Letterman” to present the Top Ten and received congratulations from President Obama, an avowed White Sox fan. Humber is a registered Republican but didn’t refuse the President’s call unlike someone I could name who gave up the series-ending goal during overtime in Game 7.

Humber will soon become a father, but he won’t name his child after his daddy, the Red Sox. Instead the infant will be named “John Gregory.”
