The Last 'Active' Expo.


Update: That was then (Monday)...This is Now (Tom Brady Tuesday, not George Allen)

If you are one of the few lucky ones you have no idea how badly the hot take time machine portion of the pro sports media industrial complex miss-called the 'retirement' of Tampa Buccaneers' quarterback Tom Brady over the weekend.

Which means that Mr. Brady is  (at least for the moment) the last active pro athelete who was once drafted by the long gone Montreal Expos.
...Drafted by the (New England) Patriots in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft, Brady almost pursued a different sports career. Committed to playing football at the University of Michigan for the 1995 season, the Montreal Expos still decided to draft Brady in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB draft.

At the time, he was seen by the Expos scout John Hughes as an intriguing catching prospect...

Imagine that!
