Well, we weren’t there at Super Bowl Media Day like some lucky people. But we wanted to do our part with hype (listen to us, as if we’ve never blogged about the New England Patriots before. Pffft!). So . . . we interviewed someone who had a Tom Brady encounter!
Please welcome Winnie McCarthy of Watching the View as she shares the story of her brush with NFL greatness once upon a time.
GoS: So, you once had a Tom Brady encounter. What’s the scoop?
WM: I had a class with him at University of Michigan, and we were in the same 20-person discussion section. I was surprised how deep his voice was. Very manly.
One day, as we were leaving class, Tom was ahead of me. I may or may not have waited until he left class to follow him. Of course it could have just been coincidence that he was right in front of me. Or fate.
He held the door for me! I said, “Thanks” in a tone just above a whisper. What I really wanted to say was, “Oh my God thank you so much I love football and I love you and can we go somewhere and cuddle and we would just have the cutest babies!!?”
I was a loser though and had to get to my next class, so I didn’t even get to follow him that day. Um, I mean I had to go to class, so we parted ways.
GoS: Did he wink?
WM: I thought he did at first, but I think that the wind had just kicked some dirt into his eye. So close.
GoS: What was he wearing?
WM: He always dressed so nicely in class. Most of the rest of the team would wear sweats and Michigan shirts, but he always wore nice, preppy clothes. I know that day it was a little cold out and he was wearing a navy wool dress coat.
GoS: How was his hair?
WM: Perfect. (Did you really need to ask?)
GoS: Thanks, Winnie. Excuse us, folks, as we pause for the new Pepsi Super Bowl ad. You can also skip the ad a la TiVo and get right to Part II. Then, we’ll finish up the interview and find out whether or not Winnie kissed Tom Brady.
