Tom Brady’s Super Bowl LI Jersey Stolen – Texas Rangers On The Case
In the aftermath of what many are calling the greatest Super Bowl of all time, Tom Brady's jersey didn't make it out with the rest of his gear.
Brady claims that he put his jersey in his bag, and went to continue celebrating with his teammates. When he came back, it was gone. He called the incident unfortunate because the jersey is a nice piece of memorabilia.
Have no fear, though, Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick (no, not the sportscaster) has called out the Texas rangers to help solve the case of the missing Super Bowl jersey.
"In Texas we place a very high value on hospitality and football," Patrick said in a statement released Monday. "Tom Brady's jersey has great historical value and is already being called 'the most valuable NFL collectable ever.' It will likely go into the Hall of Fame one day. It is important that history does not record that it was stolen in Texas. I've called Colonel Steve McCraw to ask that the Texas Rangers work with the Houston Police Department on this case.
"I'm a Texans and Cowboys fan first, but the unquestionable success of the Super Bowl in Houston last night was a big win for our entire state and I don't want anything to mar that victory. Whoever took this jersey should turn it in. The Texas Rangers are on the trail."
NFL security is also looking into the incident.
This allowed the Texas Rangers baseball team (or whoever runs their Twitter account) to have a little fun.
