From Block Island to Super Bowl MVP

After hearing the results of Superbowl LV – Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 31 to 9 – island resident and photographer Malcolm Greenaway sent The Block Island Times a photograph of the Buccaneers’ football quarterback Tom Brady to recognize the celebration. The photo of Brady, who spent the first 20 seasons of his career with the New England Patriots, was captured in 2007 after a game against the New York Giants.

Greenaway wrote of Brady’s connection to the island:

“As you may know, the family of Tom Brady’s former girlfriend (actress Bridget Moynahan) owns a house on Block Island. When they were dating, Tom would spend the week before training camp on Block Island, visiting the family. He worked out at the health center, visited the B.I. Depot, attended church at St. Andrews, and jogged on Corn Neck Road. Suffice it to say, when Tom showed up at some of these places, those who recognized him were somewhat taken aback.”
