Tom Brady is less than a week away from the moment he’s been waiting for for almost a year.
After losing to the Denver Broncos in last year’s AFC Championship and missing the Super Bowl, Brady has reportedly been counting the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until this year’s Super Bowl.
According to the Washington Post’s Sally Jenkins, Brady installed a clock in his home gym last February, counting down until Super Bowl LI.
As the Washington Post noted, Brady’s father, Tom Brady Sr., told CSNNE’s Tom Curran before last year’s Super Bowl that Tom had the clock installed.
“Tommy doesn’t just play football. Tommy is a football player. This is not a July to January or February endeavour for him. He loves two-a-days that started for him a week ago, that will be two-a-days from January 20th to the next February. He’s got a countdown clock in his gym that is now ticking to next year’s Super Bowl. It’s clicking, yes. And he is still doing his two-a-days. So this passion comes from a whole bunch of hard work, and the hard work is driven by the passion.”
Many in the NFL world assumed that when Brady returned from his four-game Deflategate suspension, his revenge tour would begin. While Brady has downplayed the importance of showing up Roger Goodell with a Super Bowl win this Sunday, it seems that his revenge tour has been in the works for quite some time.
Luckily for Brady, he has just six more days to wait.
