The week-long Super Bowl media blitz is known to bring out some juicy or quirky nuggets about the players and coaches involved.This year is no different as we’ve found out that Tom Brady likes to use quite the interesting term when referring to his New England Patriots teammates.
“He always kind of calls guys ‘Babe,'” the teammate says. “I was confused [at first]. I was like, ‘Did he just call me babe?’ But he kind of talks to guys like that, like, ‘Hey, babe.’ It’s the California boy in him, I guess.
“It’s kind of funny. Everybody has this image of Tom Brady being this passionate, tough guy on the field. But off the field, he’s one of the nicest guys I’ve ever been around.”
The anonymous teammate making the “Hey, babe” claim told ESPN.com’s Elizabeth Morril that he “wishes — no, begs — to not be named.”
So Tom is “one of the nicest guys” to be around, yet his teammate is afraid to be attached to the comment?
We’re a bit confused here, dude…er, babe.
