BOSTON — The New England Patriots arrived at Fenway Park bearing hardware on Opening Day.
Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, Robert Kraft and Jonathan Kraft emerged from underneath an American flag draped over the Green Monster as part of a ceremony before the Boston Red Sox’s home opener Monday against the Washington Nationals. Each carried a Super Bowl trophy to the pitcher’s mound, where Brady threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz.
That’s seven championship rings just 60 feet, 6 inches apart, as Brady has four Super Bowl wins while Ortiz has racked up three World Series titles. It was a crazy sight for this generation of Boston sports fans.
Brady’s first pitch to Ortiz wasn’t pretty, as the future Hall of Fame quarterback skipped it in the dirt. Ortiz scooped the offering perfectly, though, and the two hugged between the mound and home plate.
Brady’s fashion could have used some work given that he rocked a sweatshirt around his waist. But hey, who’s going to question the greatest quarterback to ever grace the gridiron?
It’s TB12’s world. We’re just living in it.
