Five facts you probably didn’t know about the famous quarterback from New England.
In 2014 Tom Brady and his wife sold their mansion to Dr. Dre for $40 million. The nearly 19,000 square foot estate in Los Angeles, called by some “The Brady Fortress”, has 9 bathrooms, a 6-car garage and a fully-equipped gym. A few months after the purchase, the famous hip-hop artist and producer sold his old Hollywood Hills home and moved in to his new place.
One of the world’s most famous couples – NFL top quarterback Tom Brady and Victoria Secret supermodel Gisele Bündchen, was actually formed during a blind date in 2006. The Tinder-like date was set by a mutual friend who thought the Brazilian-born diva was “a girl version of Brady”. After the blind date, the chemistry between the two clicked and two years later Brady proposed to her during a private plane trip, among champagne and white roses. Now they have two kids. Today Gisele is the world’s richest model and Tom is a real sports legend with five NFL Super Bowl rings.
It has been revealed that Tom Brady would pay his teammates if they made a pass interception during practice. The exact sum is not known but there’s a rumor it varies between $100 and $200 per interception. Is it a supreme confidence, a way of motivating the team, or he is just a very generous person? We can’t tell, but it is known that Brady is a big spender on gifts for his teammates, especially at Christmas time. He doesn’t miss an opportunity to reward his beloved linemen, for example, with luxury watches or UGG (his favorite brand) slippers.
Professional athletes lose a lot of liquid during practice. Each individual chooses different ways to stay hydrated. Some prefer drinking pure water, others go for Gatorade. The superstar quarterback’s locker though, is full of Coconut water bottles. Coconut water, while being a great thirst-quencher, is also high in potassium and has a wide range of nutritional benefits. The healthy-to-the-extreme way of life of Brady and his wife is no secret. Tom carefully schedules each of his meals. He has excluded sugars and flours from his diet completely and snacks on things like hummus or avocado ice-cream.
Tom Brady grew up in San Mateo, California, and logically was a San Fransisco 49ers fan at first. In 1981, when he was four, Brady was cheering for the Niners with his parents in the stands of Candlestick Park. The match was the famous NFC Championship game against the Dallas Cowboys that became known as “The Catch”. The name came about when 49ers wide receiver Dwight Clark made an acrobatic leap to catch the pigskin for a game-winning touchdown in the final seconds. Ironically, in 2000 NFL Draft, the San Fransisco 49ers didn’t choose Tom Brady.
