Perhaps, there is some justice in this world after all because Tom Brady takes an occasional bad photo.
The 44-year-old star NFL quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pretty much has it all in life. Brady is fabulously wealthy and married to a beautiful super model who is even wealthier than he is. He is seen in the eyes of most as the greatest QB to ever play the game, having won an unprecedented seven Super Bowls after making an insane 10 appearances in the big game.
The last Super Bowl win coming last year at the ridiculous age of 43 — from an NFL standpoint — and he’s playing for another ring this year at 44.
Brady excused himself from training camp on Sunday to attend the 2021 Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony, where rival and friend Peyton Manning was getting enshrined.
Tony Dungy, head coach of Manning’s first team in the league, the Indianapolis Colts, ran into Brady at Manning’s Hall of Fame party and shared a photo he took with him.
“Another player I caught up with last night at Peyton’s HOF party—Tom Brady,” the Hall of Fame coach tweeted. “Nothing but class! Taking a day to leave training camp to be there shows the love and respect they have for each other. We were competitors on the field but I have ultimate respect for Tom as well!”

Interestingly, Dungy had ranked Brady as the sixth-toughest QB to coach against during his time with the Colts. Brady’s former team, the New England Patriots, were 5-3 against him with a 2-1 advantage in the playoffs.
The coach’s knock on Brady was that he wasn’t all that mobile. At his current age, Brady is like a statue in the backfield but he has mastered the art of getting the ball out of his hands quickly to avoid onrushing defenders.
So, the bugged-out look on Brady’s face could have been the disbelief that Dungy was so accommodating. Or not.
One thing is certain, their photo prompted a whole lot of jocularity on social media.
Here’s a quick sampling of some of the responses from Twitter:
