You Will Not Believe How Much That Tom Brady Courtroom Sketch Is Going For
Art is subjective, insofar as the value of certain work is determined by variables too nuanced and fluid to predict. There literally is an entire field within philosophy (Aesthetics) dedicated to explaining how and why one piece of art is better than another; a discipline which undoubtedly will tackle the complex underpinnings of Jane Rosenberg's massively popular courtroom sketch of one Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr.
It's either so bad it's good (artistically speaking), or it has become a historical artifact representative of modern civilization's decline into the absurd. After all, this is a picture of a man -- who throws inflated leather bags for a living -- sitting in a court of law to protest his role in the underinflation of said leather bags. Explaining the significance of Rosenberg's drawing is, without question, a long, weird story.

Meanwhile, because we're broke and not talented whatsoever, we've put together our own crappy artwork, melding the faces of Mike Francesa and Colin Cowherd -- who is set to take Francesa's time slot on Fox Sports 1 this September. We'll start the bidding at $242 (seeing as FS1 is channel 242 on most Comcast cable packages). Have a look and Tweet at us if you're interested in a framed, numbered lithograph...
