Fan Gives Back Tom Brady's 600th Touchdown Pass Football.


When Tom Brady threw his 600th career touchdown pass yesterday (October 24th) in his Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 38-3 win over the Chicago Bears, becoming the first NFL quarterback to ever reach the mark, Mike Evans, who caught the pass, didn't realize it was a milestone play, so he gave the ball to a fan in the front row at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium (much to the surprise of Brady!). Brady unsurprisingly wanted that ball back, and the fan, 29-year-old Byron Kennedy, was good enough to agree to it -- but not at first. Kennedy told the Tampa Bay Times that he said no twice when a Bucs staffer first came over and told him Brady wanted the ball, saying, "I was hesitant to give it back." But he eventually agreed, and while Kennedy hadn't gotten anything from the Buccaneers as of last night, the Times reported it's believed they were putting together a reward package for him. Brady called Kennedy's gesture "pretty cool" after the game, and said, "He’s going to get something nice in return, so we’ll get him a helmet or a couple of jerseys or some other stuff." Ken Goldin, the founder of Goldin Auctions, tweeted that the ball could easily go for $500,000. (I'm thinking a lot more!)
