During the go ahead drive last night, Tom Terrific passed the Heisman Trophy runner up (from TN) for most passing yards in regular season and play-offs combined. Drew Brees owns the all-time regular season passing yardage mark.
In the process, Brady became the first QB with over 80,000 passing yards.
I figured I'd ask the board for their bragging/lucky break/amazing viewing experiences. Who was the best ______ you've ever seen live? Many with lucky timing can say they saw Tom Brady when he was in college, the best NFL QB. Who was the best pitcher you ever saw at an MLB game? Who saw Desmond return a punt? What about the best basketball player you've seen? In obvious answers, the best 5'7" goalie we've ever seen was tiny Jesus. Any other GOATs you've been lucky enough to have tickets to? Tales you'll tell the grandkids?
Nice piece in the Detroit News from John U. Bacon regarding Tom Brady's beginnings at Michigan. Some nice anecdotes baked into a story we know but don't mind rehearing.
A tidbit (but go read the whole thing):
He lived in an apartment building with a single washer and dryer in the basement. When another student had left a load of laundry in the dryer too long, and went down to get it, he expected to see his clothes in a pile. Instead, he saw Tom Brady standing at the dryer folding his T-shirts, and leaving them in a neat stack. An entitled jock, he was not.
[EDIT - Based on the initial comments, I'm SAF not going to change the title.]
Follow up: at least a dozen motherfuckers dropped as well for good measure.
I was at the game and remembered thinking at the time, "Good thing this guy is not the starter!" His first pass may have made him look like a goat, but I'm sure it steeled him into becoming The GOAT! Enjoy and GO BLUE!! https://www.youtube.com/attribution_link?a=aG4UKdnCUwQ&u=/watch%3Fv%3D7WwHCNMUWjc%26feature%3Dem-
There is just something about number three hitting a three in the third month of the year...
Go Blue! WIN THE GAME!
Good article on Tom Brady. Starts out a little about deflategate (which, I'm over), but then goes into his story growing up, playing at Michigan, being drafted in late rounds, etc...
Nothing new, nothing provocative, but a good read about the GOAT.
