Tom Brady has been named one of Time Magazines’s most influential people of 2017 in the Titans Category. One could argue that Brady should have been included in all of the categories- Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons but I suppose it’s only fair to share the spotlight with other deserving participants.
Brookline native Conan O’Brien does a nice little write up of the GOAT’s accomplishments in 2017 and how he has come from a scrawny 6th round draft pick to unquestionably the most accomplished Quarterback in NFL history (sorry Montana). Honestly it’s nothing we haven’t heard before but you can read the full thing here.
The most interesting thing to come from the article is from this exchange between two men in a Dorchester bar in regards to a trivia question involving Tom Brady and his GOATness.
“Fan in Dorchester sports bar: Which NFL quarterback has the most Super Bowl wins, touchdowns, appearances and passing yards, plus the most overall victories in NFL history, plus a Brazilian supermodel wife?”
“Other fan in bar: C’mon, Chowderhead—nobody could friggin’ know that!”
First off, we need to get the Game of Thrones Shame Nun to come punish this Dorchester native, as that is quite possible the easiest question for anyone living in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. At minimum he should have his Massachusetts license revoked and be barred from his favorite waterhole until he completes a state mandated 10 hour course title Brady:101.
Secondly, I may not have my PhD in townie linguistics, but there is absolutely no way that fan #2 sincerely insulted another person by calling them a chowderhead, right? That simply cannot be real life, that’s a phrase that I thought was reserved for films like Feverpitch to give Jimmy Fallon an authentic Boston aesthetic. If that is a real quote than my apologies, however, the word should have at least spelt phonetically correct as chowdahead. C’mon Conan, you went to Harvard, that’s English 101.
Support us and the GOAT!
