Tom Brady has won four Super Bowls while being named Super Bowl MVP three times. He’s been named to ten Pro Bowls and is on the verge of claiming the title of greatest quarterback of all-time. Oh, and Brady was drafted in the 6th Round of the NFL draft in 2000, out of Michigan. Yes, you know this fact. It’s mentioned in every Super Bowl Brady appears in — it’s part of his legacy in the same way Michael Jordan‘s legacy includes getting cut from his high school basketball team. So why bring it up? (BTW, there were six other quarterbacks taken before him. Also note: Brady totally gave the Lou Gehrig to Patriots QB Drew Bledsoe‘s Wally Pipp.)
Because Super Bowl announcer Joe Buck will bring it up. At least Las Vegas thinks so. The Super Bowl, of course, is heaven for the so-called prop bet (proposition bet) — oddball stuff you can’t usually get odds on, like the coin toss, the length of the national anthem performance, and whether Lady Gaga has a wardrobe malfunction. Part of these bets now include what announcer Joe Buck will say during the broadcast — and Buck mentioning Brady’s being drafted in the 6th round is a popular bet. Note: Buck told Howard Stern he’d probably mention Brady’s 6th round history.
