Tom knew standing there in the tunnel that this was his chance to make a name for himself. He had worked all these years, through high school and college and now the pros to get to this moment. All the blood sweat and tears had led him to this moment. He felt the weight of an entire region and a franchise on his shoulders and his back was about to break. Could he win the big one? Could he save this area? Could he be a champion? He was about to find out as he heard the stadium speakers announce the thing the whole team had been waiting to hear their whole lives, "And now introducing the New England Patriots". Tom Brady was now in his first super bowl.

I thought it would have been better if it featured Drew Bledsoe, but I liked the story. The tunnel is a clever allegory for chronic traumatic ensepholophy (sic) and the current health care system.
