I expect that when the 49ers and the Patriots play this year Thomas Brady Sr. will be rooting for New England, and not the his home team 49ers that he use to take young Tommy to so they could root for the 49ers and the the great Joe Montana. However, I am sure that some of Tom's high school friends will be rooting for the team that they have been rooting for since childhood friendship be damned. I am sure anyone of us would don an outfit of aqua and orange or wear a horseshoe logo if our own son was drafted by a rival team. But would you do it for a brother? a cousin? a friend? classmate? a brother-in-law? Is anybody here a Pats fan because of a relationship that didn't start out a Pats fan?
