Without question, Tom Brady is one of the best football players to ever play the game. I think we can all agree on that. Referred to as the GOAT (greatest of all time) by fans and media alike because of his unbeatable accomplishments on the field is high praise. No argument here.

The first Saturday in May can only mean one thing in the world of sports….The Kentucky Derby!
