My friend and colleague, columnist for the Boston Herald John Sappochetti began a very fun topic yesterday in his column. John offered his opinion of who should be cast in the movie in the making by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (Disney’s ‘Finest Hours’), Marshfield Executive Producer and NY Times Best selling author Casey Sherman and my Brockton homie Dave Wedge, a former Boston Herald reporter and Sherman’s co-author of ‘Boston Strong’.

This movie is about Tom Brady and the New England Patriots all the way up to the greatest come back in Superbowl history in Superbowl LI.

While I disagreed with John about Leo DiCaprio as #TB12, I began to have fun putting the cast together for a movie remake of the greatest Superbowl come back in history.
