Super Bowl Sunday has come and gone, leaving one Bay Area native a big winner in terms of personal performance. Tom Brady, born and raised in San Mateo, was calling the shots and taking the snaps for the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI and had himself quite a night.
Brady tossed a terrific game of "pigskin," finishing with 27 completions on 41 pass attempts, including a Super Bowl-record stretch of 16 straight completions. He racked up 276 passing yards and added on two touchdowns in the game, while only throwing one interception.
It's safe to say that the local boy has made good. It's hard to imagine anything topping Brady's achievements from tonight. This is certainly a performance he will look back on for years with pride.
