Tom Brady Says He’s “Part Minnesotan”

If you made up Tom Brady’s life story, the tale would be considered too over-the-top for a Disney movie. His upcoming appearance in Super Bowl LII will mark the 8th career time the Patriots’ captain has played in the big game. A victory in Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium would mean 6 NFL titles for the man whose supermodel wife has an estimated net worth of $360 million.

In regards to the quarterback position, the 199th overall pick from the 2000 NFL draft is the best ever. A bit of Tom Brady’s mystery was revealed to me on Sunday. The greatest football player of all time mentioned that part of his make-up is tied to the greatest state of all time.

Once the weekend’s blood bath on and off the field, in Philadelphia, ceased, I knew I’d be rooting for the Patriots come February 4th. In the event you’re not quite sold on cheering for the NFL’s Evil Empire, maybe this latest development will cause you to side with New England.

In an interview with the NY Daily News, after their defeat of Jacksonville, Tom Brady referred to himself as “part Minnesotan.” His ties to the Land of 10K Lakes come from his mother, Galynn. The 40 year-old Brady now carries the entire city of Boston on his back. Well, the woman who carried him in her uterus for 9 months is a native of Browerville, MN. Now, his story makes a little more sense.

The small town, with Brady family ties, is approximately two hours northwest of Minneapolis. Per the 2016 census, Browerville, MN has a total population of 753.

In his youth, the now Michigan alum’s grandparents still called Minnesota home, despite Brady being born in California,. While growing up, the future Hall of Famer visited his mother’s-side grandparents every summer. Apparently, a couple of his fonder memories were fishing and milking cows.

I’ve always wondered how the hell he was so comfortable around animals.

As you can tell by his life accomplishments, Tom Brady is playing chess while the rest of the world plays checkers. He jams hours of Words With Friends, while we mortals f*ck around on Candy Crush.

With the Vikings falling short on their quest to be the first team ever to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium, the year’s biggest sporting event will now take place at a neutral site. However, that may just be on paper. In my opinion, Brady premeditated the hell out of this statement on his Minnesota-ties. He knew if the Vikings lost, the Purple’s fans set to attend the championship would be devastated. This strategically placed piece of information, meant to pull at our vulnerable heart-strings, was simply genius.

Super Bowl LIII will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. If the Vikings just so happen to exorcise their recent demons and advance to the season’s final game, WHOEVER we have starting under center best have some family affiliation with the state of Georgia.
