Middle School Renames Itself to “Tom Brady Middle School” Ahead of Season Opener

A middle school in Massachusetts is celebrating the New England Patriots' season opener in a big way Thursday.

Forest Park Middle School in Springfield changed its name to "Tom Brady Middle School" for the day.

Teachers, students and administrators came to school in Pats gear Thursday morning, and chanted the quarterback's name during an assembly. 

After a summer of endless talk about deflated footballs, Brady, who had his four-game suspension overturned by a federal judge, will lead the Patriots against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night at Gillette Stadium in the season's opener.
