Watching a Super Bowl unfold -- after coming up one game short of playing in it -- can't be easy. It might not happen at all in the case of Tom Brady.

The Patriots quarterback, speaking to WEEI during his weekly appearance, said that he could "care less" about watching the 2014 Super Bowl.

"I don't have much of a rooting interest, truthfully," Brady said. "Those games are hard to watch. I don't really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season's over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That's pretty much how I feel."

Brady's apathy towards the game comes from a pretty obvious place. He and the Pats were one game shy of making it to New York and getting a shot at Richard Sherman and the Seahawks.

Surely Brady would love a little revenge on "that type of guy," but in this case he won't get it. And though he and Peyton Manning are friendly off the field, it's doubtful he'd enjoy seeing Manning knock down his second Lombardi Trophy since Brady captured his last Super Bowl victory.

Unfortunately for Brady he'll probably have to spend the evening at his tiny little house with his supermodel wife Gisele. Tough break. At least this time she'll be free to criticize Wes Welker's ability to catch the ball.
