Terry Bradshaw
Terry Bradshaw was hurting after the 1982 season. The 34-year-old Steelers quarterback had torn muscle and tendons in his throwing elbow in training camp after slipping on a wet field while throwing a pass. Aided by cortisone shots, he managed to play every one of the nine games in the strike-shortened season, but needed surgery in the offseason to repair the damage. On March 3, 1983, Bradshaw was admitted to Doctor's Hospital in his hometown of Shreveport, La., for surgery. To avoid being descended upon by press and admirers, Bradshaw was admitted under an assumed name: Thomas Brady ... of all the names to pick, the most accomplished quarterback of his era just happened to get the name of the guy who would eventually surpass him in Super Bowl wins.
