In the quest to determine what actually is more important than Tom Brady, New England Patriots fans finally can cross a big one off the list: work.
Brady’s appeal of his four-game Deflategate suspension finally took place Tuesday, and Wan Lin wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to support his idol in person. The New Jersey resident told the New York Daily News that he requested the day off from work two weeks ago, citing “issues at home.”
Instead of dealing with issues at home, though, Lin trekked to NFL headquarters in New York and camped out in his Brady jersey, wielding a “Free Brady” sign he made to show support in the quarterback’s hour of need.

Lin joked he wasn’t technically lying about the reason for his day off because he’s such a big Brady fan that he considers the quarterback a part of his family.
“He’s always in my heart,” Lin told the Daily News. “I love every second that he’s on the field. It would be sad to see him miss four games or even half a game.”
Talk about dedication. Let’s just hope Lin’s boss is more understanding with him than NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been with Brady.
