It is tempting to think that there isn’t anything that New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady can’t do. Despite not being picked up until the later rounds of the NFL draft, Brady has defied the odds to become one of – if not the single – greatest quarterbacks of all time.
Developing a reputation for performing brilliantly in the most clutch, high-pressure situations, Brady has belied a lack of athleticism, largely due to his poise and prodigious skill with the football in his hands.
That absurdly high level of performance has lead to a plethora of Super Bowl rings, a supermodel wife and a place among the great all time NFL players. Of course, Brady’s tenure in New England hasn’t been without its speed bumps, not least deflate-gate, which threatened to derail the Patriots’ season before time. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it didn’t.
Even Tom Brady isn’t infallible though, sacrilegious as that statement might seem to his most avid of fans. The 39-year-old has been on a tour of Asia this summer taking in the sights, and doing all the usual touristy activities associated with Japan and China.
Recently though, the Patriots star tried his hand at the ancient and noble art of sumo wrestling, and let’s just say that Brady might be better of sticking to throwing the football rather than pass-rushing anytime soon.
Here’s the clip:
It would seem that Brady won’t be angling for a career change anytime soon, but with the Patriots looking in good shape heading into pre-season, fans in New England will be confident that they can replicate their astonishing Super Bowl victory earlier this year. With Brady at the helm, you wouldn’t bet against it.
