Tom Brady's favorite athletes includes Derek Jeter

Tom Brady's list of favorite athletes starts with Derek Jeter.

But the first name Brady said? None other than recently retired Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.

While it makes sense that three-time Super Bowl winner Brady would like five-time World Series champion Jeter, Brady apparently didn't get the memo of one of the first rules of Boston sports fandom.
