New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the rest of the players in the 2017 Super Bowl attended Super Bowl 51 Opening Night at Minute Maid Park on Monday (January 30) in Houston, Tex, where they answered lots of questions from reporters for hours.
One 7-year-old reporter asked Tom, 39, who his hero is in his life.
“That’s a great question. I think my dad is my hero, because he’s someone I look up to every day,” Tom said before getting choked up. His eyes visibly became full of tears and he had to pause before reaffirming, “My dad.”
Tom‘s dad, Tom Brady Sr., recently made some comments about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell regarding deflategate, defending his son. After becoming emotional, Tom was asked about the remarks.
“Well, I’d say my dad represents his feelings, because he’s a dad, and I’m a dad and …” Tom began, before getting emotional again. “He was just a great example for me, and he was always someone who supported me in everything I did, to come home at night and bring me out, hit me ground balls and fly balls. I loved baseball growing up. And to have a chance to go to 49er games on the weekend with him and my mom and throw the ball in the parking lot before the games; those are memories that I’ll have forever.”
