Tom Brady One Of Us? The Story Of His Midwest Roots! (VIDEO)
Tom Brady was born and raised in San Mateo, California. He played college football for Michigan, before spending his first 20 years in the NFL with the New England Patriots. Now, he's going to be playing in his 10th Super Bowl in 21 years for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. However, ask Tom Brady about his roots growing up, its the summer's he spent on his Grand Father's farm near Browersville, Minnesota, that he remembers the most.
Browersville, Minnesota is about 100 miles southeast of Fargo, North Dakota. Right smack dab in the middle of Minnesota and lake country. It's a small town with a population just shy of 800 people. Most of them Patriots fans, until Tom joined the Tampa Bay Buc's this past season. Now, this little town in Viking country will be cheering for Tampa Bay and Tom this Sunday.
Listen to Tom Brady before Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis as he "gushes" about his time spent in Minnesota.
As a life long Minnesota Vikings fan, I can't remember a time the Vikings ever beat Tom Brady. (Including this year) Now I know why, every time he plays Minnesota he has that extra juice to excel in front of his friends and relatives in Minnesota.
When Tom Brady ever does retire. (He still looks like he's 29) He'll go down as the greatest quarterback of all time. To be able to take his teams to 10 Super Bowl in 21 years is a feet, that may never be duplicated. He's won 6 of those Super Bowls and was the MVP for 4 of them. According to the odds makers, he's not the favorite this weekend. Tampa Bay is a 3 point dog against Kansas City. Still, I wouldn't bet against the 43 year old savvy veteran Tom Brady.
