When Kevin Youkilis was mulling whether or not to sign with the Yankees as a free agent, he decided -- like many others -- decided to ask advice from his brother-in-law.
Only his brother-in-law is Tom Brady.
"I . . . asked a question about coming to New York: 'Could you ever be a Jet or a Giant?' " Youkilis told the YES Network. And hes like, 'I dont know. Luckily Im not in your shoes.' And Im like, 'Thanks a lot for your advice, buddy!' "
Youkilis, the newest Yankee, is married to Brady's sister Julie, whom he met in Boston while playing for the Red Sox.
"He's great," Youkilis said of Tom Brady. "It's pretty fun . . .
We always joke about that: the brother you always wanted, and Im like, 'I dont know if you wanted me as a brother, but you didnt have a choice in this matter now.'
