Tom Brady is getting a shade emotional about playing the New England Patriots this upcoming season.

The Buccaneers and Patriots will play week four this season, and it’s already the most-hyped regular season game in recent memory. For proof of that fact, ticket prices are through the roof right now, and prices are the second-highest ever for a regular season sporting event in America.

How does Brady feel about playing the team he won six Super Bowls with prior to joining the Bucs? He had an interesting metaphor.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion said it’s like when your high school friends meet your college buddies.

Damn, Brady is really trying to make sure this situation is as emotional as possible October third, isn’t he?

There might not be a dry eye in the house when he takes the field wearing a different uniform.

Also, I’m curious as to how most people interpret this metaphor and how Brady is applying it. I can only speak for myself, but I would say the people I met after high school have remained much closer to me, outside of two or three high school individuals.

Aren’t people almost always closer to their college friends than kids they went to high school with? High school ends, you all get split up all over the country and life goes on.

Again, that could just be me.

Either way, Oct. 3 is going to be an electric night.
