One of those times was on Wednesday night, when Brady spoke to Jimmy Traina of SI.com about a range of topics. First, the football meat, as it were: Brady ain't retiring "any time soon."
"Well, I love doing [my job]," Brady said. "I don't want to wake up and be bored. That's probably my greatest fear is to have nothing to do. What better job is there than to play quarterback for an NFL team, and certainly one that I've been on for a long time and had success with? I don't plan on giving it up any time soon."
That's not unexpected, even if Brady will be 35 in August. He's still playing at a high level and he very nearly has five Super Bowls to his name, were it not for those meddling Giants. (Brady also talked about the Giants: he does not like thinking about them very much.)
Far more hilarious is the exchange that takes place between Brady and Traina when Traina tried to confirm the report that Gisele is pregnant with the couple's second child by asking him about the rumors that he and Gisele are "having a third."
"I like working on it," Brady responded.
That, folks, is a beautiful line. And it stunned Traina too much to press him about the kids.
@willbrinson He sure did. I was in too much shock to ask a good follow up.— Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) June 21, 2012
Instead, Traina asked about Twitter -- don't expect to see Brady on there -- and the difference between Bill Belichick and Rex Ryan. Or, more specifically, whether Brady could see himself playing for Ryan.
"I'm just glad I play for Coach Belichick," Brady said.
No one expects him to say anything different, but it's another in a long line of hilarious answers, including comebacks about Brady's hair and whether or not it's Gisele who picks what 'do he'll sport on a given day.
In short, you should cruise over and read it. And lest you think it's all culture-related questions, Traina hits him with a question that Brady, surprisingly, hasn't been asked about: what he was thinking on the final play of the recent Super Bowl loss to the Giants.
"You know, it's interesting because this is the first time someone's asked me that question," Brady said. "I threw it and when I let it go, I knew we were gonna have a chance. The ball got batted up in the air and I saw it tip 60 yards away from me, but then I got knocked down, so I fell to the ground and I saw the ball get deflected. Unfortunately, though, I looked over and saw the bad guys running on the field."
It's a sight that Brady -- and anyone who watches the Patriots play -- isn't used to seeing that often.
