This is a completely true story and I have a credible witness who will vouch for me.
When Tom heard that D-train had a Michigan hat, he ran right over, realizing we were sincere fans and not just some annoying hecklers. So now Tom Brady is standing with us, talking about football. Of course, none of us knew at the time we were talking to a future sports legend.
Or did we?
So Tom is talking to us and he is kind of quiet and reserved. As we were talking I somewhat randomly and rudely say, “so are you ready for Bledsoe to go down and step in and be the hero?”
The point here isn’t my terrible journalist skills, it’s that what I said to Tom Brady his rookie year is exactly what happened! See above video of the Bledsoe injury, and below evidence of Tom Brady's heroics in the Super Bowl.
Since then I’ve tried to think of other prophecies but it never works. I think there is something about trying too hard and it not working. When I had the Brady prophecy I was just in the flow, goofing off and it just came out of my mouth.
Overall, the Brady Prophecy is one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to me. I was a freshman in college when the Patriots won their first Super Bowl, so needless to say there was tons of debauchery, willying out, and general tomfoolery. In other words, it was something I won’t soon forget.
