The Truman Show….

Would you let your life be taped like in the movies EdTV and The Truman Show?

I think it would be totally weird and I don’t think I would like it. Plus, I don’t do too many things that are interesting so I doubt that people would want to watch me sit a my computer and watch movies all day.

Apparently he’s not been to Mr. H’s band camp…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP)—Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas(notes) is surprised he was sent home by coach Bill Belichick for being late to a team meeting.

Thomas was one of four players who were sent home for tardiness on Wednesday. He said Thursday that he was surprised because he had called ahead to say he might be late as players are instructed to do. Thomas also said he almost got into a car accident as he drove to Gillette Stadium during a snowfall that tied up traffic.

He said he showed up about nine minutes late for the 8 a.m. meeting and was told by Belichick to leave. Thomas also said he doesn’t know how Belichick thinks and he’s dumbfounded by a lot of things that go on but he just does what he’s told.

Man up and be on time…good that you called…but next time be on time….
