Tom Brady’s Fight for Redemption *RR
Thursday, November 29, 7 pm
Author Dave Wedge will talk about his book 12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Fight for Redemption According to David Steele in the Washington Post, the book “delivers what the title promises. The quarterback’s redemption reaches its climax when the New England Patriots pull off a historic comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51 in February 2017. NFL fans, die-hard and casual, will easily get swallowed up in the retelling of Brady’s stunning performance. …..The centerpiece of the tale is the fight between Goodell and the league, and Brady and the Patriots, over “Deflategate,” the scandal that resulted in Brady’s four-game suspension at the beginning of the 2016-17 season over his role in deflating footballs used in a game against the Indianapolis Colts. Brady’s sentence was one of the highest-profile punishments in the history of America’s most popular sport.”
