Tom Brady is opening up about his Thanksgiving plans, along with some details about what it’s like being a football player on the holiday.

While interviewing Oprah Winfrey for his SiriusXM podcast Let’s Go! With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray, Tom talked about what his day will entail.

“Thanksgiving there’s a lot to be thankful for,” Tom said. “But you only get about four hours to enjoy it. Practice usually ends about 1 or 2 pm, you eat about 3:30 and then you’re getting ready for the next day of practice. And then same thing with Christmas. So, you know, I’m looking forward to the time when I’m done playing football so that I can have some of those more normal holidays that I had growing up that were important where the family’s all together.”

When it comes to food on Thanksgiving, Tom said he will eat “just like everyone else. That’s the one meal where I’m like, screw it, let’s go for it. And we all get to enjoy it.”

Tom recently talked about how he balances his football career and spending time with his family.
