This is absolutely awesome. There are no other words that can describe what New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady posted to his Facebook account on Thursday.

Just give it a gander. Look at the whole photo, and take it in.


The photo appears to have been taken immediately after Joe Montana hit Dwight Clark for one of the most memorable moments in NFL Playoff history. It gave the San Francisco 49ers a 28-27 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Championship game in January of 1982.

Brady—seen above with his mother—grew up a big time 49ers fan. It’s something that he has not exactly attempted to make private since San Francisco passed up on him in the 2000 NFL draft.

By virtue of New England’s win over the Seattle Seahawks earlier this month, Brady has now matched his childhood idol, Joe Montana (and Terry Bradshaw), for the most Super Bowl wins for a quarterback in NFL history (four).
