Patriots fan’s obituary labels Tom Brady innocent
Patricia M. Shong, a 72-year-old Patriots fan from Auburn, Mass., passed away earlier this week. Shong’s family included a defense of Brady in Patricia’s obituary. The Brady line read as follows:
“She would also like us to set the record straight for her. Brady is innocent!!”
Shong obviously didn’t care what Jim Kelly or anyone else thinks. She literally took her defense of No. 12 to the grave, and it’s tough not to admire that.
Over the years, we’ve seen the families of many sports fans include references to their teams in their obituaries. One woman said Dick LeBeau leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers contributed to her death, while another fan complained about this horrendous play call on his way to the afterlife. Shong is in good company.
