CHOI OCT. 24, 2018 Photo Illustration by MASSIMO GAMMACURTA Whenever I land in a new country, before I’ve even left the arrivals hall, my mind turns to shopping.

Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and assorted supporting castmates have not just been winning Super Bowls for the last 18 years — the team has the National Football League’s best home winning percentage and best record overall since 2000.
