So you come home at the end of a long work day, put the keys on the counter, and check the answering machine.
After the reminder about your kid’s doctors appointment, and the neighbors asking you to clean up after your dog, imagine if this is the next message:
“Hi, this is Tom Brady calling, . . .”
If he could have followed it up with “Can Gronk come out and play?” he might be otherwise occupied this week.
But according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, the Patriots are using their star quarterback’s voice to send out a message of thanks to their season-ticket holders.
“On behalf of the entire Patriots organization, I want to thank you for the tremendous support you showed our team this past season,” the message continues. “Your enthusiasm and passion in the stadium really motivated me and the team on game day. Thanks for being our 12th man on the field. As a season-ticket holder you help provide the foundation for our team’s success and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2013.”
It’s one thing to send a letter or a trinket, but the Patriots are giving their fans a chance to have Tom Brady in their voice mail.
If they really appreciated their fans, they’d get Bill Belichick to record the message next year.
“Thanks. . . . Bye.”
