NFL quarterback Tom Brady — a six-time Super Bowl champion — shut down retirement rumors in a Super Bowl ad for Hulu, where he declared: “I’m not going anywhere.”
Brady, 42, fueled rampant speculation that he might retire after his New England Patriots failed to qualify for the 2020 Super Bowl. Brady won two of the last three Super Bowls.
Following the 2019 season, Brady became a free agent after 20 seasons with New England. The move led many to wonder what Tom’s future plans were.
Brady stirred the pot by posting a black-and-white photo of himself walking through a tunnel at a football stadium. The photo was part of a commercial for Hulu that aired during the second quarter of Super Bowl.
In the commercial, a somber Brady says: “They say all good things must come to an end, that the best just know when to walk away. So to my teammates, my family, and most of all, my fans, you deserve to hear this from me — Hulu doesn’t just have live sports.”
Brady continued: “So it’s time to say goodbye to TV as you know it. But me? I’m not going anywhere.”
Meanwhile, here’s Mitch McConnell’s Super Bowl ad celebrating President Trump’s imminent acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial. (Just kidding.)
Tom Brady is widely considered the GOAT (Greatest of All Time). There’s speculation that he might join the Los Angeles Chargers, the Los Angeles Raiders or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Unlike unemployed kneeler Colin Kaepernick and other pro athletes, Brady has been reticent to discuss politics. However, it’s an open secret that Brady is longtime friends with President Trump.
In 2017, a motley crew of anti-Trump activists masquerading as “journalists” bullied Brady into distancing himself from Trump.
One blogger threatened: “Anyone of note who’s supportive of the president of the United States must recant and submit to a public flogging. Those who fail to comply must be named and shamed.”
Here were some other headlines warning Brady ahead of the 2017 Super Bowl:
- Tom Brady has some explaining to do on Donald Trump
- Prof claims Trump supporter Tom Brady ‘more un-American’ than Kaepernick
- For Tom Brady, there’s no avoiding Donald Trump during Super Bowl week
- Super boycott! Anti-Trump supporters skipping Super Bowl over Patriots’ ties to President.
The shameless public bullying of Trump supporters has become so normalized that the media thinks they can bully anyone who supports the President.
In 2017, fired Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci claimed that Brady skipped a White House visit in April 2017 after the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl because his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, was jealous of gorgeous first daughter Ivanka Trump.
While many thought Brady’s absence meant the quarterback is no longer close to Trump, Scaramucci said the two remain good friends. Mooch said Tom just skipped the White House event because he didn’t want to trigger his “possessive” wife Gisele, who hates Trump.
“Somebody should ask Gisele why Tom Brady didn’t show up at the championship party,” Scaramucci said. “There could be a little bit of jealousy there. I think she’s possessive of him and probably didn’t want him there.”
The current status of Brady’s friendship with President Trump is unclear.
