Recently Tom Brady and the New England Patriots lost to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship game. Most of us would have thought he would have been healing his wounds – not Tom. He took a few minutes and posted on Facebook and shared a handwritten letter that thanks Patriots Nation for their support this season.
Let me know what you think?
Thank you to all of our fans for the incredible support you gave us this season. I’m proud to call New England my home and to have the privilege of playing for your team.
Our team fought hard all year, right down to the final play. I’m proud of the effort we all put in to prepare each game as if it were our last. We never quit nor lost sight of what we were playing for. It’s rare to have the honor of being on a team like that.
It takes a lot of hard work and commitment to get as far as we did. Our goal every season is to win the last game, but as I’ve learned, the road to the next one is paved by seasons like this one.
Yours truly, Tom
I realize many, if not all, readers are not fans of Tom.
- But what do you think of the letter?
- Do you believe it was genuine?
- Did your opinion change of Tom?
- Do you like when athletes do this or take out full page ads when they leave town?
I look forward to reading your comments.
