With a little over two weeks until the NFL Draft, it’s time to bring you some Football, and what better way to kick it off then a video of everyone’s favorite long haired, whiny quarterback, crying.
If you’re faint hearted, grab your tissues and light a few candles because this gets emotional.
Tom Brady has three Super Bowl rings, millions of dollars, has the Pro Football Hall of Fame basically locked down, and gets to come home to Giselle Bundchen every night, sounds peachy right?
Not so much.
Brady started to recall how frustrating it was to wait through that draft when he and his parents had been told that he’d probably be a second- or third-round pick, but as you may know Tommy was the 199th pick in the 2000 draft (by the New England Patriots).
Brady was so upset that fateful day that he went for a walk around the block to his family’s home baseball field, bat in hand, to blow off some steam. Oh his parents were also with him.
Holding back tears Tom said:
“It was just a tough day, you know?” Brady said after he composed himself. “I just remember being there with my mom and dad … sorry about that … they were just so supportive of me. And they take it as emotionally as I do. And finally, when the Patriots called, I was so excited — I was like, ‘I don’t have to be an insurance salesman!’”

While I’m far from a Brady fan, you can see why this guy is the best at what he does. He brings such emotion to whatever he does and that gives him the drive to be the best.
That being said, I can’t get enough of the long haired Tom Brady crying on video.
