What Mrs. B. Can and Cannot Do For You:
Q. Do you know Tedy?
A. While I have met him several times and he knows me and my husband Al, we are not what I would consider "friends" (i.e. we don't go out for coffee, don't call each other on the phone, etc.) Our connection is strictly a Fan/Athlete one in which I am paying tribute to my favorite Patriots player.
Q. Can you give something to Tedy for me?
A. Most of the time when I see him, he is on the field doing his job and I am in the stands either at games or at camp so it's not possible. The only other place that I ever run into him is at paid charity events that I attend, in which case I get a wave or hello if he happens to spot me.
Q. Can you get me an autograph?
A. The majority of autographs that I have, were either obtained at Training Camp (by standing in line along with the other thousands of folks there) or I've purchased them at professional signings. (Check my calendar as I post player signings that I'm aware of.) As for camp, it is free and is open to the public. Players do sign after practice but it's a matter of getting lucky since there are many, many people there these days... (That's what happens when you are World Champions!!)
Q. How can I contact Tedy Bruschi?
(I have no way of knowing if either of these methods will work but it's worth a try!)
Q. What does Tedy say about the website?
A. Honestly, I have no idea if he has ever even been on it! If so, he's never said anything to me one way or the other.
11/06 Update: Tedy HAS recently mentioned being on the site and said he thinks it's GREAT!! :-)
Q. Since you know Tedy so well, can you ask him to get me tickets, donations for charity events, autographs, a visit to my school/work etc....?
A. As I stated, we don't have that type of relationship and I don't ask him for anything... Sorry!
Q. What nationality (ethnicity) is Tedy?
A. This has been the Million Dollar Question (and the source of many e-mails to me) since Tedy won SB XXXIX and sported the Milk Moustache.... His father was Italian and his mother is a very beautiful Filipina!
Q. So, if you can't contact Tedy for me, get me an autograph, or ask him for stuff what CAN you do?
A. I can provide you with the most up-to-date and comprehensive collection of articles, pictures, and information about our favorite linebacker and hopefully provide you with a connection that you may not have otherwise had. Thanks for stopping by...
Go TEDY and GO PATS!!
