Capitol Hill Buzz: Miami fan Rubio ponders a Brady-free NFL

During a confirmation hearing this week for New York Jets owner Woody Johnson to become the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, Rubio, a Dolphins fan, said football factors into his deliberation. Rubio's a member of the panel.

"Because of my lifelong being a fan of the Miami Dolphins, support for your nomination due to your relationship with the New York Jets is painful and hard", he said. The Patriots have collected eight consecutive AFC East titles, while Miami hasn't even won a playoff game since 2000.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, a lifelong Miami Dolphins fan, suggested this week that his football team and the country would be well served if New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady were to take on a new job as the U.S. ambassador to Brazil.

Last race: Lewis Hamilton won on his home track in England to move within a point of series leader Sebastian Vettel. Despite winning 16 races over five seasons for JGR, Kenseth is being replaced by 21-year-old Erik Jones in 2018.

"Perhaps that could be arranged before September of this year", he said, drawing laughter.

As people were laughing at the joke, Rubio stated, "I don't know why people are laughing, I'm very serious about this".

Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, is a native of Brazil, so while Rubio's plot would get Brady out of the AFC East, it would at least get Brady's spouse back to her home country. President Donald Trump and Patriots owner Robert Kraft are close friends, he said.
