Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and living legend Tom Brady filled yet another column of the NFL record books when he threw his 600th career regular-season touchdown pass in Sunday's 38-3 trouncing of the Chicago Bears. Wide receiver Mike Evans clearly didn't know history had been made, however, as he gifted that touchdown football to a fan in the stands:

Somebody from the Buccaneers ultimately retrieved the game ball, and Brady later promised that he would take care of the man identified as 29-year-old Byron Kennedy:
Signed memorabilia is nice and all, but Kennedy told Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network on Monday that he wants to play a round of golf with Brady:
As Michael David Smith noted for Pro Football Talk, it's been said the football could end up being worth $500,000 at a future auction. Brady is known to enjoy hitting the links, so this is one request he should definitely grant during the offseason.
One would hope Brady will pay for the round, as well.
