Tom Brady took Jack out for a bike ride around Boston yesterday, bringing Gisele's puppy Vida along in the front basket. After being sidelined with an injury last season, the newlywed QB is excited about more than hitting the field. Tom doesn't often talk about his personal life, but he recently revealed a bit about his relationship with his son and more. Here's highlights:
- On sharing custody of Jack: "I don't see him every day, and we play when I change his diaper: lifting his leg up, playing with his toes, biting his feet. There's this different appreciation. If you had him every day, you'd go, Let's just get this done. But when you get him, say, one week a month, you're like, This is so cool!"
- On paparazzi claiming there were shots fired at his wedding: "Absolute total b.s. We found two guys on our property, and we told them to get out. Our security guys didn't even have guns. There were no shots fired."
- On football: "I want to play another 10 years [...] People say, 'What will you do if you don't play football?' Why would I even think of doing anything else? What would I do instead of run out in front of 80,000 people and command 52 guys and be around guys I consider brothers and be one of the real gladiators? Why would I ever want to do anything else? It's so hard to think of anything that would match what I do: Fly to the moon? Jump out of planes? Bungee-jump off cliffs? None of that s--- matters to me. I want to play this game I love, be with my wife and son, and enjoy life."
Tom sounds anxious to get back to the field, and with rumors that Gisele is pregnant, his cheering section might be even bigger than his wife and son.
