Tom Brady’s sister to marry famous Red Sox player

I had the joy of attending the Yankee at Red Sox game that had the most runs ever in the series. It was truly amazing. The Yankees won 27 to 16. Below is an interesting story about one of the players I saw play that day.

Boston (in) Common: Kevin Youkilis set to marry Tom Brady’s sister

It appears that two of Boston’s favorite sporting sons will soon be related by marriage. Boston Red Sox infielder/DH Kevin Youkilis is engaged to marry Julie Brady, the sister of some guy named Tom who happens to play quarterback for the New England Patriots. The Greek God of Walks first met Tom Terrific’s sister at a postgame party at Patriot Place in 2011, just after the New York Jets booted the Patriots out of the 2010 playoffs.

Youk was reportedly in the Brady suite at Lucas Oil Stadium for Super Bowl XLVI to watch Tom’s Pats lose to that other New York team.

According to the Boston Herald, the couple dated for a year before deciding to tie the knot. The soon-to-be Mrs. Youk (or, in Boston parlance, ‘YOOOOOOOOUK!!!!’) is a schoolteacher, with a five-year-old daughter. Plans appear to be for the ceremony to happen in the offseason in California, where the Bradys are from.

“He’s really lucky,” a friend of Youk’s told the Herald. “She’s a really nice person, but all the Bradys are nice people.”

It will be her first marriage and his second — though his first officially. Youkilis was married — sort of — to Ben Affleck’s ex, Enza Sambataro, though the couple apparently never filed the required paperwork. We assume things will be better organized this time.

 

From a Boston fan perspective, both players could use a re-boot in terms of perception. Youk hit just .258 in 120 games for a disappointing Red Sox team, and there are some in Beantown who are unhappy enough with Brady’s inability to win the Super Bowl without competent receivers to call for the Brian Hoyer era. No, really.

Here’s what we don’t know about the future Mrs. Youk — if Red Sox fans bash his performance in her presence, will she pull a Gisele and fire right back in the direction of his teammates? We can but wait and see.
