The best way to deal with Super Bowl hype is to turn everything into a baseball story. The Star-Ledger obliges with a nice, in-depth piece on Tom Brady, almost Expo:â†µ
In what was Hughes’ last, best pitch to sign Brady, he met him at Candlestick Park when the Montreal Expos were playing the San Francisco Giants, put him in an Expos uniform, and introduced him to Rondell White and F.P. Santangelo, who led him onto the field to take batting practice.
Candlestick. Expos. Can't believe he passed up that sort of glamour for a life of supermodels and Super Bowls.
