Get the tissues ready – more often than not, fans of the Patriots are wearing their favorite quarterback’s jersey, Tom Brady’s No. 12. But for one New England fan, that number means so much more. E:60’s Tom Rinaldi tells the powerful story of 10-year-old Logan Schoenhardt. Watch it HERE. (ESPN)
Logan attended Monday night’s game and watched his favorite quarterback and team win a big game.
The New York City Photo:
From CBS Evening News…
Griffin Madden and his girlfriend Saya Tomioka loved to dance on rooftops and in nightclubs. But just before midnight on December 2, the dancing stopped. Madden was trapped inside the massive warehouse fire in Oakland, California. Thirty-six people died including Madden. Tomioka was not there.
In her grief, she remembered a moment the two shared in New York City last year.
They had just seen “The Book of Mormon” on Broadway. On Facebook she wrote: “…the city was so beautiful and amidst all the lights, I got to look at the brightest light of all, my sweetie. I cried, and we kissed.”
A photographer nearby captured the moment.

This is a remarkable record! Johanna Mellinger hit a milestone on Monday in Great Falls — her 400th donation of blood platelets to the American Red Cross. Platelets are used to help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, trauma victims, and for transplants or open heart surgery. (KRTV)
Congrats and thanks to Johanna!
