It’s Super Bowl week, and if you thought Tom Brady was going to let this week go by without being all up in your timeline...well. Just a week after announcing he’s retiring from football (you’ll never convince me he didn’t play an extra year just to stick it to Adam Schefter), Tom Brady has dropped his first thirst trap on Twitter.

And even more so because no amount of refusing to mask during COVID, vouching for Antonio Brown, stumping for Donald Trump, or getting a PPP loan during a nationwide pandemic is enough to get people to stop buying what this guy is selling. He’s even gotten to Jane Fonda, for crying out loud.
Of course, this entire thing was set up by Brady’s own brand:
So...whatever. It’s Super Bowl week and everyone is talking about Tom Brady, which is exactly how he wants it to be.
