40 years ago today the Brady's had a son.
At the time I'm sure they didn't know he was the one
Whom the sports gods favored over any other child...
On the day that Tom was born those gods looked down and smiled.
Tom's a gift the sports gods gave to all New England fans;
One that keeps on giving since, apparently, he plans
To go win another ring. (He'll need a second hand...
Victory parade route is already being planned.)
On this anniversary of that auspicious day,
On behalf of sports fans everywhere, I'd like to say;
Thank you to the sports gods and to Brady's dad and mom.
Thank you to his teams and coaches... Happy Birthday Tom!
