Don't know if this warrants a fan post, but I had to share this moment.
I started physical therapy today for a bum hip. I am currently living in Boston. I walk in to meet my therapist and the guy sits down and says his name is Tom. I am not sure what prompted me to ask, but I did.
"Hey Tom, what's your last name?"
Tom gets this huge grin on his face and says "Brady, yup, Tom Brady."
We both laugh - Tom is an older guy - say mid fifties and he has a clear Boston accent. So I decide to push the issue.
"You know Tom" I say trying to muster my best Pittsburgh accent "We're going to have a problem"
"Why's that?" he says.
"Well I am a huge Steeler fan" I answer.
He bursts out laughing. "Dude so am I"
I shake my head. "Wait a second you mean to tell me that Tom Brady is a Steelers fan."
Yup he says, "nearly got me killed here on multiple occasions" He pauses and ads, "that's not the worst of it though, ask me what baseball team I root for"
So there you have it. Tom Brady of Boston Mass is a Steeler fan and a Yankee fan. Go figure.
I told him I would post his story.
