Patriots star Tom Brady talks about being a father, Giants rivalry, Super Bowl victory and Twitter
New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady had a very entertaining interview with SI.com on Wednesday. Host Jimmy Traina knew what kind of entertainment and gossip Tom Brady fans are looking for.
Tom Brady’s interview to SI.com has it all. From his new hairstyle to comments on the Hail Mary or talk about his wife Gisele, the usually guarded and media-shy player talked about nearly everything in the interview.
Talking about his notorious last throw to Rob Gronkowski at the Super Bowl last season, Tom Brady was asked whether he knew the tight end would catch the ball.
“It's interesting because this is the first time someone's asked me that question,” Tom Brady responded. “I threw it and when I let it go, I knew we were gonna have a chance. The ball got batted up in the air and I saw it tip 60 yards away from me, but then I got knocked down, so I fell to the ground and I saw the ball get deflected.”
Tom Brady admitted that the time he spent on the ground during those last moments were the most intense moments of the season. Tom Brady confessed that he did not know whether he would be mourning or celebrating during the offseason.
“Unfortunately, though, I looked over and saw the bad guys running on the field,” Tom Brady concluded.
In the interview, Tom Brady also hinted about his third kid by saying, “I like working on it.”
Tom Brady’s sidekick Rob Gronkowski also became a topic of discussion in the interview. Tom Brady was asked to comment on Rob Gronkowski’s dancing abilities.
“I've seen him dance plenty of times,” Tom Brady said. “On pools, on tables, everywhere.”
“Everyone's blowing off steam,” Tom Brady said commenting on New England Patriots activities after the Super Bowl. “It was unfortunate we were in a public place. I wish we, as players, had a private place to go. He's a great guy. He loves football. What he's accomplished over two years has been remarkable.”
Tom Brady also talked about New England Patriots’ archrivals, the New York Giants.
“Geographically, we're very close, so yeah, there's something to losing to them twice in the Super Bowl in the most meaningful game of the year and the most meaningful game of our lives. You think about some bad memories from games you lose and there's that blue uniform with white numbers. That's what you think about it,” Tom Brady said.
Tom Brady also talked about his absence from Twitter.
“My fear with joining is that I bore people. And I don't want to do that. If I have something to say, I want it to be meaningful,” Tom Brady explained.
