Tom+Brady+Inducted+Into+Patriots+Hall+of+Fame+and+Remembered+Forever

Tom Brady was a quarterback for two decades for the New England Patriots. In this setting, he won six Super Bowls that many will never forget. On June 12 the Patriots celebrated his induction into their franchise’s Hall of Fame. So many people came out for this important day! Many of his teammates over all his years came, along with many coaches, fans, celebrities and more!

As he was celebrating such an honor of being the 35th person to be enshrined into the team’s hall of fame, the team owner Robert Kraft surprised him with the retirement of his #12 jersey. He was also presented with the announcement that there will be a 12 foot tall bronze statue of him to be made in front of the Patriots hall of Fame later this year.

After that point, Tom Brady opened his speech by saying “Patriots nation, it’s good to be home.” Brady gave thanks to everyone who had a part in his amazing career especially to his coach Bill Belichick. He also added his opinions and thoughts to the never ending debate on whether it was him or Belichick who truly brought the success during their time together. “It wasn’t me. It wasn’t you. It was us.” “Let me make it clear. There is no other coach I’d rather play for than Bill Belichick,” Brady explained.

The night of celebration started with a red carpet full of teammates, family members, and friends of Tom Brady. When the official ceremony at Gillette Stadium began it started with a performance by Jay-Z of his 2003 “Public Service Announcement” which Tom Brady used to listen to when he would jog onto the field for warm ups. Next there were videos tributes and highlights shown from over his career. Then during the night there were many teammates that came up and talked about memories they had with Brady and congratulated him on his accomplishments too. The night was one to remember, the “GOAT” will now and forever be in the Patriots Hall of Fame as one of the greats.
