The weekend of the 2000 draft Tom Brady became a Patriot and I bought this hat. Tossed it in a closet and did not think of it for a while. September 23rd, 2001, Mo Lewis, Drew Bledsoe, and I wore this hat for the first time. Now it is falling apart, it smells quite bad, and is sticky to touch. You can read the whole story of my hat here. In short, I have had it for just shy of 20 years. With today’s news, the hat will be retired. Thanks Tom.
