EXIT OF THE DAY: I-95 Exit 8 To: S Main St, Sharon, Massachusetts Foxborough, Massachusetts. If you drove north past this Exit , you would hear this on your RoadSpoke app:
"Ok Road Crew. On your left you can see the top portion of Gillette Stadium. Home of football's New England Patriots and named for the hundred year old shaving razor company that is now a division of Cincinnati based Proctor and Gamble, you could say that Gillette Stadium boasts a legacy of shifting legacies. And yet, the concept of legacy is deep here in New England -- the most ancient part of the United States. Patriots, the Revolution, Boston and Massachusetts ... it's all part of every American's collective religion.
Speaking of religion and shifting legacies, right here in Foxborough Massachusetts, Hall of Fame Quarterback Tom Brady established something of a religion. Or a cult. Or a dynasty. Given that a dynasty requires a family context, we should mention immediately that Tom is married to his biggest fan — Brazilian Super Model Gisele Bundchen.
The beautiful couple add a lot of glamour to this part of New England which exists in the long shadow of New York's high wattage media shadow.
Yet their dynasty, like most marriages, is not without its challenges. It is no secret that Gisele wanted Tom to retire back in 2019 before the possibility of his getting hurt. So while it may appear Brady and Bündchen have the postcard marriage, that’s not always the case.
Early in 2020, Goalcast reported that their marriage had hit a rough patch. The couple “stopped communicating properly.” Usually, very private, Brady discussed openly what turned things around. He credits “a very heartfelt letter” that Gisele wrote him. Brady admitted that the letter was “a good reminder that things are going to change and evolve over time.”
That is good news for the Brady Dynasty even though Tom now no longer plays here in Foxborough. Despite some hard feelings that Tom moved on, New England Fans empathize with their aging hero. Tom will always be loved here because he always delivered here — RIGHT HERE in front of his adoring New England Patriot Fans.
Sure he is going to be in the Hall of Fame. And sure he may well be the Best Quarterback in the history of the game. But if we were to exclusively consider his home game stats, Tom Brady is superior to any player EVER.
While some pundits say home field advantage is not relevant, the stats for when Tom Brady played at home field are so successful they are kinda beyond comprehension.
Consider this: prior to the 2018 season, Brady has lost just 15 of his 113 total games at home. His 98-15 record is better than any other quarterback since 1960, according to ESPN. He’s lost just one game at home to an AFC opponent since 2007. 56 percent of his career wins have come at home. Brady has NOT thrown a touchdown pass at home in JUST eight games.
Despite his success on New England’s "home field", many fans believe he is even more successful at home -- his own home. With his biggest fan a spouse who takes the time and consideration to write a letter explaining her position, the dynasty no doubt will go on anywhere the couple moves. Tom Brady always scores with Gisele Bundchen on his hometeam. After all, with a team like that, who wouldn't?"
