“Big team win on the road-✅
#11 & #87 score in same game-✅
#12 miss me??-✅✅✅----
Room to improve-✅
Healthy-✅--,” the caption reads.

Notice his question to Brady has the most check mark emojis so he certainly already knows the answer.

Brady has yet to respond but the tb12sports account did comment on the post with three “collision symbol” explosion emojis.

Take that as you will.

-- Major League Baseball is one of many donors asking for its donation back from Cindy Hyde-Smith after the US Senate candidate from Mississippi made comments about attending a “public hanging.”

MLB made a $5,000 donation to the Republican candidate and is joining AT&T, Union Pacific, Walmart and Boston Scientific in asking for a refund.

Hyde-Smith is running against Democrat Mike Espy in Tuesday’s run off election and caused a stir when her comments about a public hanging from earlier this month were revealed.

“If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row,” she said on Nov. 2.

She has apologized but said her words were “twisted” by opponents.

In a statement, MLB spokesperson Pat Courtney said, “The contribution was made in connection with an event that MLB lobbyists were asked to attend. MLB has requested that the contribution be returned.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “No better way to celebrate Thanksgiving. Division on the road, it’s always good to win a division game on the road.” -- Bill Belichick, on the Patriots’ win on Sunday
