If you think New England Patriots’ quarterback, Tom Brady, will be curling up with his supermodel wife, Gislele Bundchen, to watch this year’s Super Bowl, think again, because according to the all-star quarterback, he has no plans to watch the game at all.
After losing to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, 26-16, and being completely outplayed by the quarterback-of-the-moment, Peyton Manning, Brady says he plans to miss the game entirely, and it seems he doesn’t feel embarrassed to say so. “I don’t have much of a rooting interest, truthfully,” he said in an interview.
And the main reason, he says, is because the Super Bowl would be too painful to watch, and viewing it would just likely annoy him.
“Those games are hard to watch,” Brady explained. “I don’t really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season’s over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That’s pretty much how I feel.”
It’s pretty safe to assume that most would probably agree with Brady, as anyone who either plays or played competitive sports, knows how it feels to watch the team that beat you go on to play for the championship. But after he spoke out against Richard Sherman’s rant, kind of taking a holier-than-thou-stance, some might say Brady is being a sore sport.
In addition, he said if the game against Denver was played on his home field, in Gillette Stadium, it would have probably turned out way different. “Yeah, of course it would have been different,” he said. “There’s a lot of things that play into these types of games. You’re right, you look at those games, you look back at the Cincy game and the Jet game, those games that we lost, and all of them mean something. It means something in September, they mean something in December.”
