On the Sunday Night Football stage, December nineteenth, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers had been swept for the second consecutive common season towards the Saints — a irritating shut-out loss that had Brady spiking a poor Microsoft Surface pill on the sideline.
Now, per Brady on his Let’s Go podcast that aired Monday, the NFL just isn’t going to let the Surface abuse proceed. Should the seven-time Super Bowl champion throw the pill once more, he will be fined. “I did get warned from the NFL about that so… I won’t throw another Surface.” Brady mentioned.
The co-host of the podcast, Jim Gray, joked that the entire incident was simply good advertising and marketing for Microsoft’s pill — which has been in use by NFL groups since 2014 and final yr received a deal to have all 32 NFL groups use them. Gray requested Brady to make clear what precisely the warning from the NFL was; to which Brady responds eloquently: “I can’t throw another Surface, or else I get fined. Imagine that.”
Brady additionally joked on final week’s episode of the Let’s Go podcast: “I didn’t want to throw an interception with that tablet, so I made sure it hit the ground” he mentioned. Brady continued to facetiously chronicle the Surface’s demise: “It was out of use, there was no chance of that one being used after I got a hold of that tablet.”
“I‘m having a great time playing,” the now 15-time pro bowler said despite the incident “I know it didn’t appear to be it after I snapped that pill in half.”
It’s not the first time Brady had tossed a Surface in frustration; he threw the pill final season as effectively towards the Chicago Bears — the sport the place it seemed like he had forgotten what down it was (he later admitted to it on TikTok) and the Bucs finally misplaced by one level.
Let’s not completely blame Brady for chucking the pill although — in any case, it was most likely a nurtured conduct coming from his legacy in New England.
