Legend Tom Brady has had quite the year since the football season started. So Brady, who retired last year from the NFL, decided to return to the game he loves. Brady said starting every new football season is like being deployed as a military service member. You can see what he means, but, military service members didn’t like the analogy.
“I almost look at like a football season like you’re going away on deployment in the military, and it’s like, man, here I go again,” Brady said on the October 17 episode of the Sirius XM podcast he co-hosts called “Let’s Go!”
Brady said he has a strong work-life balance, but his “competitiveness takes over.”
“As much as you want to have this playful balance with the work balance, you’re going to end up doing exactly what you’ve always done, which is why you are who you are,” the athlete said.
Brady and Gisele Bündchen seem to be heading for divorce, but you never know. Brady is the comeback king, so he might be able to win his family back in the second half. They have two children together, Vivian, 9, and Benjamin, 12.
