Tom Brady embracing his son after the Bucs’ Super Bowl berth will have Patriots fans feeling some sort of way.
We get it. You’re probably sick of the Tom Brady content, but what do you expect? No. 12 isn’t going anywhere and has already proven in one season away from the New England Patriots that he’s capable of winning it all on his own. Yes, he got a lot of help in the form of fortuitous bounces and stellar defensive play, but he’s still here.
Unfortunately for Patriots fans, they’re forced to see it all, assuming they’re still watching playoff football. What else would you be doing in the middle of a pandemic? You’re quite literally forced to witness TB12 do his thing in January and February. Why not enjoy it while you can? This is how he represented your franchise for two decades.
What we don’t want is to be hit in the wrong places and get too emotional, but it seems that couldn’t be avoided. Brady embracing his son after the NFC Championship win was … heartwarming. Ugh.
OK, the tears have dried up. But seriously, how many more Super Bowl berths is this kid going to celebrate? Is he the most spoiled son in America? He now gets to see his dad play a home game on the biggest stage?! Adulthood is going to hit him like a ton of bricks, isn’t it?
All jokes aside, Brady’s emotional moment with his son celebrating yet another one of his incredible successes should have Patriots fans in their feels. They saw this how many times in Foxborough? It’s hard to witness it somewhere else when another franchise is reaping the benefits.
The Brady-Gronk postgame video might’ve had you enraged — and that’s understandable — but this? This is totally different. A father-son bond, especially when it comes to football, is something almost every fan can relate to.
And for Pats fans? Well, just another nostalgic moment getting shoved down their throat while they’re trying to forget about it all.
