    so, shortly after the 2000 draft wrapped up here is a gist of the convo i had with my dad:

    me: "hey you hear who the next starting qb for the pats is?"

    dad: "what are you talking about"

    me: "tom brady, we drafted tom brady"

    dad: "yeah i know, but he probably won't even make the team"

    me: "i know, im scared of that, the only way he makes the team this year is if we keep four quarterbacks, because he won't make it to the practice squad, i mean we just signed john friesz, and everyone loves michael bishop."

    dad: "yeah bishop is nasty"

    me: "well hes a great athlete"

    dad: "so, what the heck are you talking about with this brady kid, its just because he's from michigan and you love them, isnt it?"

    me: "no, ive really liked what ive seen from him, and i just have this gut feeling that somewhere in the future, it might be a handful of years, but sometime he will be the starting qb of the New England Patriots...you know how much i love bledsoe, but i just have a feeling as he gets older brady will step in"

    i did NOT think what happend was gonna happen
    i would never have believe it
    but i did have a feeling that he would become the starter

    Matthew: "Heard about this kid from Nazareth?"
    Mark: "He's a but rough around the edges and needs work if you ask me"
    Luke: "I dunno. He looks like the real deal to me. They say his mother had a virgin birth!"
    John: "Everybody calm down! Jesus! You all make him out to be the Messiah or something. Talk to me when he rises from the dead."
