Is it true having Tom Brady on the Patriots team brings a little love to the rest of the crew?

We have all heard of the well documented infamous romances of Tom Brady. Specifically, I speak of big screen actress Bridget Moynahan and obviously Tom’s super model wife Gisele Bundchen.

Love oozes from Tom Brady’s pores. Just ask any Patriots fans regardless of gender. Who wouldn’t love this guy? I’ve got a man-crush on him myself.

Now, we begin to see that those teammates closely associated with him gain loving benefits as well.

Earlier this year, Patriots phenom Rob Gronkowski was exposed with an adoring porn actress, Bibi Jones. Their innocent display of fun with jerseys was sufficiently vilified by the mainstream press.

Rob eventually had to apologize for besmirching the Patriots organization for the harmless action of having his lady friend parading around in nothing more than a Patriots jersey. Personally as a fan, I don’t mind seeing my own love interest wrapped in my favorite “Pats” jersey—but that’s just me.

Just recently, Wes Welker, another Patriots' favorite son, has just announced his engagement to his long-time girlfriend and former Miss Hooters International 2005, Anna Burns.

One might propose that good fortune and professional satisfaction for the Patriots on the football field has led to good fortune in their love lives as well. Or, the Brady effect is benefiting everyone else.

I’m not implying that Tom is playing matchmaker, but it almost seems as if he might have a bit of cupid in his gene pool somewhere. Maybe what we might ascertain is having Brady on the Patriots roster provides for a whole lot of love flowing around the locker room.
