Tom Brady Explains Why He Skipped Olympics Opening Ceremony

Tom Brady flashes a big smiles while taking the field during the New England Patriots Training Camp on Friday (August 5) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

The 39-year-old football player was noticeably absent from the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony, where his wife Gisele Bundchen walked down the runway for the final time.

“For me, [the Olympics] are right in the middle of training camp so I need to talk my coach out of a couple days of practice,” Tom explained to People in the weeks leading up to the games. “I haven’t asked them so, we’ll see!”

“She loves the country,” Tom added. “She has never forgotten where she’s come from. She’s such a great role model. Obviously she’s my wife, so I’m biased, but I think she is someone that represents her country. I think she stayed really true to her roots. If you came to our house, you’d think we’d been living in Brazil. Everyone around speaks Portuguese. Which I wish I’d learned more at this point.”

    No Tommy, tiny titts is not a great role model and with your four game suspension you had plenty of time to go over and watch her stand around. You should have just said I would rather sit in a corner and play with my deflated balls.

    No, Idiot. I know you can’t read but look at these pics… He was seen on Friday (August 5). He was WORKING. That’s his JOB.
    And his wife IS a role model.

    Wow, name calling, defending Brady, Does not understand that Gisele is a home wrecking whore……oh, you must be a Pats fan….

    Ignorance is no excuse for ill informed posts. Gisele did not “wreck” any home. Tom and Bridget had ended their relationship 6 weeks prior to Tom and Gisele’s first date. BTW…Tom and Bridget were not married. Bridget has stated publicly that she was not even aware she was pregnant. That said, suspension of not, training camp is required of all contracted players. Actually it is even more important for Tom this year as he will be unable to work with his teammates for a month once the season begins. The more reps he gets in training camp, the better. Clearly you know nothing about football.

    How long ago was this post? 20 days? Wow you obviously give more shits about this than I do so you can have it. But we both know you are an over the top Pats fan. That’s ok honey I get it. I am a crazy Dolphins fan so I know all about jumping in when you feel your team or players have been wronged. I have had a lot of practice at it.

    When the Just Jared moderator Toni Gee hijacks your name for 15 days and then uses it to harass other people.
