April fool had passed. But the joke is on. The crazy rumor is spreading online. The Web world was abuzz Tuesday night with news that Tedy Bruschi of the New England Patriots was dead, that he had committed suicide. The good news: Teddy Bruschi is alive and kicking. Well, maybe not kicking since he is a linebacker.
Tedy's agent, Brad Blank, confirms that Tedy is still, very much, ALIVE.
Tom Curran of NBC News also confirmed the rumors to be false.
