USA Today By : Nancy Armour

Tom Brady destroyed his credibility along with his cell phone. Might have put a few dents in his legacy, too.

What he saw, what made him smile, is a logo that makes him so proud, the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo. “It warms my heart every time I see it,” said Bettis.

“This is something that was never a dream as a kid. You don’t dream of going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. You dream of winning a championship. So when I see it, the realization is now I am in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.” - Referenced Article

This is better than Brutus stabbing Caesar at the Theater of Pompey, though I’ll admit I was busy that night and didn’t catch it live. But I managed to see the ESPYs in person on Wednesday, amid the legends and the lunatics and the occasional Brutus or two. Red carpets seem to attract that. - Referenced Article
