We all know Tom Brady is the GOAT, his comeback victory at Super bowl LI definitely proved that 🙂 But do you really think you know everything there is to know about Tom Brady? Maybe you do, maybe you don’t. Here are 7 fun facts about Tom Brady – how many did you know?
1Tom and Gisele almost broke up! When Brady and Gisele Bunndchen first started dating, it turned out that Tom’s ex (Bridget Moynahan) was having a baby! When Gisele found out she almost left him! Thankfully, they stayed together. They now share 3 kids together, including Tom’s first child with Bridget. Their kids are: John, 9, Benjamin, 7, and Vivian, 3. He celebrated his 2017 Super Bowl win with Gisele and all 3 kids.
2Don’t step on those Uggs!! Tom is obsessed with the shoe brand Uggs, so much so that he leaves a brand new pair in everyone’s locker at Christmas. He has supported the brand for well over 6 years and has starred in many commercials for them. He even hid signed pairs of Uggs around Boston in December of 2016.
3The QB that keeps going. Tom Plans to play football into his late 40’s – as he reported to Sport Illustrated. That’s pretty unheard for any player, considering the average age of retirement from the NFL is 30! (Source: espn.com/magazine/vol5no03facts.html).
However, TB12 seems to be on the right track. His performance in the 2016/2017 season was his second best outing ever! The only time his QB rating was higher was in 2007.
So how does Tom do it? Well he spends considerable money on his health and fitness regime (If anyone knows the amount, please post in the comments as I could not find it!).
He owns his own physical therapy business (that’s only available to him and close friends) and has one of the best “Gurus” available to him in Alex Guerrero. Mr. Guerrero’s practices, while unconventional, seem to be of great benefit to Tom!
42006 – Year of the Pranks! Tom and the Patriots had an all out prank war going in 2006. One of the pranks that was pulled on him was when Matt Light and a few other team members from the New England Patriots filled Brady’s entire car with Styrofoam peanuts. Not only did the prank take months to plan, it took THREE bags of INDUSTRIAL peanuts to fill the car. Once Tom got to his car he was not a happy puppy at all. He was so frustrated he had employees of the Gillette Stadium clean the peanuts out of his car for him, poor Tom!!
One of the pranks that Tom pulled off was hiring someone to take all the tires off Matt Cassel’s car and put 3 of them in front of his locker and hide the 4th somewhere around the facility.
5Tom is BFFs with the Donald! Tom Brady is very close friends with our current president, Donald Trump and has been for the last 15 years. They first met at a Trump beauty pageant that Brady was a judge for. Back in September 2015, a reporter took a picture of Brady’s locker and it had a “Make America Great Again” hat sitting in it. When questioned about the hat, Tom mentioned how awesome it would be to have Trump as president, as he would likely install a putting green in the White House yard!
In the past, Brady has commented on how he doesn’t understand why the friendship is a big deal. In his eyes, they were friends before Trump ever ran for president and he has supported Brady for many years. He has also said, even if he might not agree with everything Trump says or does, they are friends and he will support him. Belichick and Kraft are also besties with Trump.
6No Stranger to the Movie World. When the first Ted movie came out, Mark Wahlberg wanted Brady to make a cameo appearance. With it being a comedy about a talking bear, Tom wasn’t sure it was his thing, and passed. Once he saw how well the first movie did, he agreed to make an appearance in the second film. Since he had to attend the Patriots training camp, the film crew for Ted relocated to Foxborough, so he could make the appearance.
Tom has also appeared in Stuck on You and Entourage. He has also tried his hand at writing, directing, producing and also has a couple of voice overs under his belt for The Simpsons and Family Guy!
7TB12 started winning Super Bowls from an early age. Tom Brady is the second youngest quarterback to win a Super Bowl at just 24 years of age at Super Bowl XXXVI! He was the youngest until Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Seattle Seahwks in 2006 to snatch that record away from Tom. Not only that but he has won 5 of the 7 Super Bowls he has played in, and was voted MVP for Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII, XLIX and LI. Tom Terrific will no doubt go on to win more!
