Yes, Tom Brady has now been to nine Super Bowls, and it’s impressive to say the least. Also, I’m sure 95 percent of the country is rooting against him this year, which is also impressive. There really isn’t much to say about his long and successful career that hasn’t already been talked about ad nauseam, so I won’t get into that. One thing I like to think about, however, is how we will talk about the career of Tom Brady 20 years from now.
As a basketball fan growing up, there was always a lot of talk about how mythical and great of a season Oscar Robertson had when he averaged a triple-double. I wonder how people were talking about it while it was happening; did they really know what they were witnessing? Russell Westbrook has done that very thing two years in a row now and is currently working on a third, but it seems most basketball fans are just kind of “meh” about it at the moment. In 20 years, who knows? Maybe MAPS 6 will include a statue.
I feel like it’s similar with Tom Brady. Nine Super Bowls is unheard of, insane really. The sentiment I currently hear is, “Well, here we are again.” When greatness becomes routine, perhaps it gets a little boring? I don’t know, but I’ll enjoy the game all the same.
