As people trying to do better in the world, life should not always be for money. We should be more concerned with how we treat others, and once we leave this place, when others are asked about us, they should be able to truly say that we were better off than just giving platitude. However, we all have bills. Mortgage lenders, cell phone providers, and electricity companies don’t care about how well we do in the world, they want our money monthly. Some of the lucky ones on this planet will literally be handed enough money to carry out their duties.
The same thing happened with Byron Kennedy. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady completed a touchdown pass to wide receiver Mike Evans on Sunday to give the Buccaneers a 21-0 lead against the Chicago Bears. That touchdown pass was Brady’s career No. 600, the only quarterback in NFL history to reach that number. Evans had no history in mind when he caught the first of his three touchdown passes that day. Evans handed the ball to the fan and was disappointed to learn the significance of the ball.
How much would that ball cost? Let’s get to the upper end of the sports monument. Matt Murphy restored Barry Bond’s record-setting 756th home run in 2007. He sold the ball to designer Mark Echo $ 752,467. Baseball Memorabilia continued to sell at a higher price and the crown of home runs was the most famous record in the sport.
Still, it’s Tom Brady. No one has ever thrown in for 600 touchdowns, and who knows if anyone else will. Also, people don’t usually get football as a souvenir. Players are good at not giving important football to fans. Why the Golden Auction Goldin said the ball could have been sold 500,000, And it’s not like jersey loot Super Bowl LI. Evans literally handed the ball over to Kennedy. It was hers.
Fortunately for Brady, Kennedy was in a generous mood and the Buchanan staff worked quickly. There was a bargain on the field and an employee of the team got the ball back for Brady. To compliment, the Buccaneers gave Kennedy a $ 1,000 gift card at the team store and TB12 Sports is offering him a free body coach session.
Kennedy is not the first person to return a souvenir to a player. In 2017, then-Los Angeles-nominated hitter Albert Pujols hit the 600th home run of his career. Unlike Murphy, after Scott Steffel got the ball, he went on the field during Pujolas’ post-game. Interview And gave him the ball. Steffel was later invited to the Angels Stadium to throw the first pitch.
In 2019, Eli Hides recovered Pujol’s 2000th RBI ball in Detroit. He didn’t immediately leave a valuable memento, but he eventually gave the ball to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Giving the ball back to a professional athlete is always an admirable gesture. It is the athlete who has worked all his life to create a craft sculpture that will enable him to achieve a milestone with the ball and the athlete will appreciate it more than anyone else. On the other hand, it’s not that athletes don’t get properly compensated for those milestones. They get trophies, money and free food.
So everyone has what they decide to do when they hit the lottery with one of these important memorabilia in their hands, but the Buccaneers should have done better by Kennedy. This, or TB12 Sports, should have given Kennedy a free membership and promised him that they would make his body and facial age look like Brady’s.
