    Ok, so I got to go on a trip this past weekend to LA to play a round of golf and spend some time with Brady - It was thru one of his sponsors. As it ended up we did not get to play golf with him, they were really pushing him for time, but we did get to talk for a while.

    This was the first time I've ever met Tom so I was pretty anxious and very excited to get the chance to meet him, and I gotta say when he rolled up on the Golf cart and got out I was a little star struck...well a lot actually.

    Anyway, he got out walked up and we introduced ourselves and we got some pictures - I will post them here soon, hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday (I did not use my Camera, they had a professional service there - However one of the other guys took some pics so I'll post those if you all are interested as well).

    After that we talked for a while, mostly about where I was from (Holliston, MA - However currently live in Atlanta, GA) - Then I obviously thanked him for all that he's done for us fans, super bowls and all that. FYI - I did not talk about anything personal with him or this years Super Bowl.

    Talked a little about this years team, and his response was that they have a great team this year and that he was looking forward to the season - He obviously thinks that have a great team and a great chance to get back to the SB.

    Talked a little more about Golf and a little about the NBA Championship, and as he was leaving I wished him luck and he thanked me and we shook hands again - just as he was getting in the cart one of the guys in our group told him that he won him $3k in his Fantasy Football league last year and Brady's response was "Get me and Moss again this year, we are going to hook it up."

    Needless to say it was cool as hell to get the chance to talk with him and I gotta say I'm fired up about what he said about the team.

    So anyway, I thought you guys and gals would be interested to hear that.

    One of the nicest celebrity/athletes I have ever met, and I know I'm a total homer, but if he was anything other than that I would tell you all.

    BTW - The golf course was Trump National Golf Course and I recommend it to any golfer out there - It's a public course and it's one of the nicest courses I've ever played.

    Re: Brady got me fired up.

    Pat, I was going to ask him what Wille Mc said to him in the Hallway leading out to the Field of Super Bowl 36 after he went all nuts on Bledsoe, but I forgot - Sorry.

    To be honest, I was lucky to remember my name when I started talking with him.

    I'd like to think that I wouldn't get starstruck if I met TFB, but I honestly don't know if I'd be all cool or like a little girl.

    Re: Brady got me fired up.

    Random stuff I'd ask Tom...

    1. What DID Willie say to you in the tunnel?
    2. How do you and your teammates really feel about the Jets?
    3. What opposing player POed you the most with his in game comments? What were they?
    4. Which 2 teams defensive backfields give you the most headaches?
    5. Aside from BB & co which coach and which team's org impresses you the most? Why?

    Re: Brady got me fired up.

    Although I have never met Tom myself, I have a friend who is a 49ers fan, and who was not a fan of Brady in the least, happened to be sitting at Logan airport reading a magazine article about the Pats, when a man sits down next to him and starts talking to him about it. None other than Tom Brady. He said the same thing as you, that he was incredibly nice and now he definitely has a man crush on him.

    Re: Brady got me fired up.

    awesome story. Brady is such a good guy, it's amazing how everyone hates him.

    Everyone i know in Illinois cannot stand the guy. I'm sure part of it is b/c im a crazy pats fan and my friends say it to me to mess with me, but a lot of them just don't like him... even people i work with.

    One of my friends hates him simply because of his buttchin and thinks he's ****y . Others say he has horrible diseases or he is gay.

    A lotta people are very jealous.

    Please get those pics up (not Patjew), you are a lucky lucky man.

    Re: Brady got me fired up.

    I played well. They did a small tournament type thing, we won. As a team we shot a 59, and I won the long drive contest. It was cool that I was the only Pats fan in the group so I got to hog all Brady's time while he was with us.

    Got a Autographed Jersey (For the Longest drive - that they are sending to me) and a Autographed pin flag (Lowest Net Score).

    Re: Brady got me fired up.

    Thanks for the story, Scottie. Hearing that Brady is still approachable, and easy to engage in conversation, only reinforces my belief that, in BK/SP/BB/TB, we are still backing the right horse.

    Before he moved away, TB used to live at Marina Bay in Quincy MA. He would occasionally grocery-shop at the Fruit Center at East Milton Square, where my sister and some friends live. She has told me of times when she would see him there; but instead of running over to him, asking for autographs, blah blah blah, she - and most everyone else - just respected his space, and if nearby would offer only some "How ya feelin'?", "Great game" and "Good Luck" bon-mots. And Brady would always acknowledge with a smile and polite response. And that's the way it should be, for both sides.

    On a side note, my sister has also told me of the times that she had seen Derek Lowe, who lived at Marina Bay as well, IIRC. Though he has a somewhat unsavory reputation now, she had nothing but good things to say about the way in which he dealt with her and my nephew and niece. He also appeared a couple of times at the kids' youth baseball games in Milton before he left after the 2004 season.

    Re: Brady got me fired up.

    Some other questions I would ask:

    How badly were you hurt after the SD game?
    How badly were you still hurt before the SB?
    Did you ask BB to activate Troy Brown, once you learned that he would be inactive for the SB?
    Why didn't you, and the rest of the team, come out more animated before the game, to show the world that all this crap wasn't getting to you?
    What did you say to Skippy and the OL at halftime?
    Did you ever consider changing the call on 3rd/7 from the jints' 25 in the 3rd quarter?
    Why didn't you take more time off the clock, or force the jints to use their TOs, during the goal-to-go series late in the 4th quarter?

    And those are off the top of my head.
