Tom Brady looked remarkably relaxed during the New England Patriots' last preseason game against the New York Giants. Brady knew he'd start the new season with a lucrative two-year contract extension that would make him one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL, and relaxed on the sidelines of the game, expanding and even trying some yoga poses.
] Of course, the Internet immediately grabbed Brady's footage and ran with it. WBZ sports correspondent Michael Hurley called it the "highlight of the entire preseason," while Sports Illustrated writer Charlotte Wilder called it "the most predictable event of the last three years."
Others saw it as a sign that the Patriots' play against the giants was too "boring" to attract Brady's attention ̵
Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen may sell their $ 39 million Boston property, but it looks like he's getting the most out of this yoga studio at home in the meantime. He is nearing the start of his 20th season and, at age 42, is one of the oldest quarterbacks in the NFL, but his stats and reputation speak for themselves.
"He can play as long as he wants, and he'll play as long as he wants," said his former team-mate Rob Gronkowski recently. Maybe these yoga poses become a new kind of winning dance?
Brady has stated many times, including in his cover story Men's Health that he intends to do as long as he loves, and you can imagine his intentions formulated during his yoga practice: "Namaste gain".
