We are crazy about sports in this town, there’s no denying that. It’s well known, all over the world. So, of course, we are apt to over analyze, over think and over discuss everything; especially when it come to Tom Brady. After the Patriots loss in the wild card game to Tennessee, Brady seemed nervous, hurt, maybe apprehensive in his post-game press conference.
Since then, there’s been nothing heard or seen from Tom. However, there has been hours upon hours of speculation from friends, family and mostly the media. Will he really go to another team, will he retire. LA is calling. Then suddenly, this morning… like a glimpse of sun peeking through dark storm clouds, comes an Instagram post from the GOAT.
Ok, let’s dissect this for a moment. First these words…”Every one of us that works at Gillette Stadium strived to do their best, spent themselves at a worthy cause, and prepared to fail while daring greatly (h/t Teddy Roosevelt).”
He said… “every one of us that WORKS at Gillette.” Present tense. That’s good, right?
Next. TB12 said, “you can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again.” That arena? Meaning Gillette Stadium? And catch this, “that arena AGAIN.” I’m running with that, as very good news. Hey, why not? There’s enough bad news lately.
Finally, Tom Terrific followed, “that arena again,” with… “And that’s right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove.”
Boom! There it is! Proof he will be back. Maybe. Hopefully. What the heck, it’s something to hang your helmet on.
Let the speculation begin!
