Bringing Moderation to the Extreme

The epiphany scared me. It made me mad… then disturbed… and then, inspired.

As I watched Tom Brady’s interview with Mike Tirico prior to the start of Monday night’s “game” with the Houston Texans, I realized that Brady, the same man who has been at the helm of a cornucopia of my worst moments as a sports fan, no longer garnered even the slightest modicum of my disdain. I’ve always respected Brady—much in the same way I hope Red Sox fans feel about Derek Jeter—but this was something more than a begrudging acknowledgement of greatness.
