Pretty much my feelings too. I never thought he would play for the Pats until age 42. I really thought the extension he signed in his mid-30s that would have expired at age 39 was going to be his last contract with us. The extension to age 42 completely shocked me and I am even more shocked that he completed the whole thing winning 2 more rings at the end. I am just so thankful. What an unbelievable two decade ride!
