It was only a matter of time before the clip of Tom Brady crying about falling to the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft became an Internet meme. The tinkling piano music, the hushed voiceovers, the line about the baseball bat and those tears of unfathomable sadness were the stuff of which viral video classics are born.

No matter how many video mash-ups of Brady crying are created in the next few months, it's going to be tough to top this first one, in which the New England Patriots quarterback finds out about Pia's shocking dismissal on "American Idol."

I never thought I'd see the day when Tom Brady posing with a goat would be the second funniest thing he's ever done.
