TAMPA — The weather outside is delightful. But on a day when the northeast was hit with a foot or two of snow, Bucs quarterback Tom Brady was asked about his Christmas traditions.
A week after saying, “You won’t catch me dead living in the Northeast anymore,” Tampa Tom noted how unusual it was not to experience the change of seasons.
Of course, he is living on the water on Davis Islands with two jet skis and a 40-plus-foot boat he just purchased.
On Thursday, much of New England was blanketed with snow, about 10-20 inches in some places.
“Excited for a new tradition and just being down here in, you know, beautiful weather,” Brady said. “It doesn’t quite feel like it’s Christmastime just because the seasons, they don’t change much. So normally up in the northeast where I’ve been, you definitely feel, I know I’ve got a lot of friends show me pictures today of 12, 16 inches of snow up in the northeast. I just wrote back, ‘Don’t really miss that. Don’t really miss shoveling out of snow.’
“But it’s a little different, and my kids are really looking forward to it. My kids are getting a little bit older. So, very interested to see if Santa Claus is going to come this year. I told them if they’re good, maybe, we’ll see. So, uh, it’s been a good year so far.”
