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.
“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.”
