Patriots QB Tom Brady got emotional multiple times during Monday’s Super Bowl Opening Night. What got him so choked up? He was asked who his hero is.
"That’s a great question. Well, I think my Dad is my hero because he’s someone I look up to every day....my Dad."
Later, he was asked about his Dad's recent comments on NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell:
"I’d say my dad represents his feelings. He’s a dad, and I’m a dad, and, um...so, yeah."
Earlier on Monday during a radio interview, Brady talked about his father more in-depth after joking that he banned him from talking to the media:
"I love my dad, as any parent knows how much you love your kids. My dad has been my best friend my entire life. He’s always been my No. 1 supporter. And hopefully he’s at the game cheering me on. He’s great man and I love him to death. He’s taught me everything about life. Certainly about how to be a father because he’s been the best one a son could ever ask for."
