Well, if you are a fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or just a fan of Tom Brady, you are probably in love with the fact that he has taken yet another team to the Super Bowl.

Brady—or Tommy as his cousin Paul Johnson of Browerville calls him—is 43 and will be butting heads with the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, 25, at this year’s Super Bowl.

This is Brady’s 10th Super Bowl appearance in 19 years, while this is Mahomes second appearance after the Chiefs won the title last year.

Mahomes is hoping to be the first back-to-back winner of two Super Bowls since Brady did it in 2004 and 2005.

Closer to home, the Paul Johnson family is changing clothes.

Well, their jerseys anyway.

That’s because their cousin is Brady as most of us know.

“Absolutely, we are huge Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans!” exclaimed Johnson. “No matter where Tommy goes that’s where we go.”

It was definitely strange for the family to start rooting for another team after nearly 20 years. . . .
