Here is my nephew Joshua, 7 months old, at the Proud2BCatholic concert last weekend. He’s being held by Tom Brady, Sr., father of New England Patriots quarterback and two-time Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady Jr.

See the bauble on Josh’s hand. That’s Tom Brady Jr.‘s 2001 Super Bowl champion ring that he gave to his father and which his father wore to the concert where he gave a talk on his Catholic faith. He was very generous in allowing my nephews to wear his ring and have their pictures taken.

By the way, Joshua is wearing his Tom Brady shirt, dressed by his mom in anticipation of just this opportunity. My brother-in-law Pete sacrifices so much in order to put the concert together, it’s nice that he have something nice like this for himself.

So do you think that in 23 years or so we’ll re-visit this picture as Joshua gets his own Super Bowl ring? Hey, an uncle can dream, can’t he?

  • No offense, Dom, but I think your nephew is wearing the wrong jersey. 

    He’s a horse, and he’s going to be way too big to be a QB.  Defensive tackle is more like it.

    Great story and pic!

  • No, no!  Don’t you ever listen to old wives?  You have to “mark” the child before he’s born.  You needed to have mom startled by a Super Bowl ring about eight months ago…

  • “Joshua is wearing his Tom Brady shirt”

    I saw that little guy and I don’t think I made the connection that he was part of your family. You are really blessed, Dom, to have a family that shares your faith and to have a ton of little ones running around smile
