After all of the anticipation around whether or not Tom Brady would stay put in New England with the Patriots or go elsewhere, I am ok knowing he's going to a team that appears to truly value him as a quarterback.

One of the first things I thought about was how weird it was going to be to see Tom in a different uniform. I mean, for real, right?! I couldn't even picture it and I really didn't want to.

Once the sting started to wear off it became more obvious to me pretty quickly that there was only one thing for me to do: go online and pre-order my new Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tom Brady jersey. So I did.

On Friday, when I went onto the Buccaneers website to do some shopping, Tom's jersey was available for pre-order only. At that point, we were unsure if he would have his traditional number 12 because they only displayed the jersey with 00 on the front and back of it. I went into my new online account with the Buccaneers yesterday to check and they updated the jersey with his number, 12. This means that Bucs wide receiver Chris Godwin had no problem giving up No. 12 for the G.O.A.T. I like him already.
