Tom Brady, one of the hardest working men in sports, turns 44 on Tuesday. He’s got seven Super Bowl rings, five Super Bowl MVP awards, a resurgent career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, an iron clad Hall of Fame case, millions of dollars, a beautiful wife and three wonderful children.
All of that probably makes it hard to give him a birthday present. What do you get for the man who has it all?
Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians thinks he’s found the perfect present: a day off.
Brady’s teammate Jordan Whitehead remains in awe of Brady and everything he’s doing at 44 years old.
Brady punts football in frustration
Who knows if Brady, famously a workaholic, will actually take the day off. The answer will probably be no, especially considering how a recent practice ended.
Brady punted a football onto a nearby practice field — about 40 yards away — and slammed his helmet to the ground at the end of Sunday’s practice. According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, Brady was frustrated that a two-minute drive ended without a score, having been stopped cold by a sack and two incompletions.
Does that sound like a man who wants a day off for his birthday?
