Over the weekend, we met Ace Davis, the Child of Destiny whose incredible science fair project that proves Tom Brady is a cheater resulted in one of the greatest interviews of all time. Julian Edelman is still lying on a floor somewhere wondering what the hell just happened.
Which brings us to the latest person to fire shots at Brady… *checks notes*… Daniel Radcliffe. Wow, okay. Granted, this exchange lacks the bombast and panache of Science Fair Kid, it does compensate with awkward, nerdy Britishness and a surprising recollection of news items from 2015. Namely the time Tom Brady’a MAGA hat was photographed in his locker, which he confirmed was a gift from his good friend Donald Trump, who has done “amazing” things.
Magic him in the dick, Pottah!
Daniel Radcliffe says he’s rooting for the Rams in the #SuperBowl and has a message for Tom Brady: "Take that MAGA hat out your locker" | #Sundance #VarietyStudio presented by @ATT pic.twitter.com/uGI608bP3b— Variety (@Variety) January 26, 2019
Naturally, The Boston Globe knows a social media feeding frenzy when it sees one, so it tweeted its own coverage of Radcliffe’s remarks, and you can guess how that went over with a readership who would gladly feed their children to Brady if it added an extra yard to his throws.
(Full disclosure: I laughed at the Frodo one.)

If American Football had something to do with Tea and Crumpets, I might care what Daniel had to say.— Jim Nee (@Real_Jim_Nee) January 27, 2019
His opinion of the maga hat was has just as much meaning when the Red Coats said we could have guns, and we beat there ass!— The Kid (@miovine10) January 27, 2019
However, amidst a sea of “Who?” and Revolutionary War tweets, some astute Globe readers actually had an excellent rebuttal to Radcliffe rooting for the Rams. Team owner Stan Kroenke donated $1 million to Trump’s campaign because the entire NFL is awful. Just rape, domestic violence, and right-wing politics all the way down.
No points for Gryffindor. (Yup, I’ll go lay in traffic now. Good talk.)
