All things #12, in honor of #7! Exploring the greatness of Tom Brady

029 All things #12, in honor of #7!

Wow!  Let’s Go…or Let’s F***ing Go as the GOAT would say!
Tom Edward Patrick Brady did it again.  Congrats Tom on a 7th Super Bowl win!Did you know Tom Brady by himself has more Super Bowl wins than the Patriots, Steelers, 49’ers and Cowboys organizations.
So what makes Brady the GOAT = Greatest of All Time?
First, in HS, in San Mateo CA, he couldn’t even start for his JV Team that was 0-8…he got his chance after the starter was injured, and ended up as QB1 as a JR & SR…when he got his opportunity he made the most of it.
Next, he chose to play at Michigan, where he spent most of his college career as #3 or 4 on the depth chart, when he got his opportunity he made the most of it.
Then in the 2000 draft, 198 times teams passed on Brady…he was a sixth round pick, the 199th pick; and was projected to be a career back-up.  But in his second season, when the starter went down, he got his opportunity and made the most of it.
In 2006 when he was set up on a blind date with a super-model; needless to say, he got his opportunity and made the most of it.
In 2020, after 20 seasons of being nothing but a winner, the Patriots did not work very hard to support & appreciate Tom, claiming their “system” is what wins.  And in the craziness of 2020, Brady takes a leap of faith…some said a leap off a cliff?  He goes to a losing franchise, an undisciplined franchise, and immediately transforms the culture; resulting in yet another SB victory.  He got his opportunity and made the most of it.
Today’s episode is all things #12, in honor of Super Bowl victory #7.  This guy is 43 (looks 23), has 10 Super Bowl appearances, 7 Super Bowl wins…obviously, he’s doing something right.  We’ll toss around some of his company’s insight and advice; TB12 is a Health & Wellness company dedicated to helping people achieve a lifetime of sustained-peak-performance; and in celebrating the GOAT, we’ll have some fun with the #12.
