New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady spoke to Michael Strahan on Monday’s “Good Morning America” about his team’s devastating loss at this year’s Super Bowl held on February 4.
Brady, 40, was obviously disappointed when the Patriots lost 41-33 to the Philadelphia Eagles but he praised his team for their hard work and said he understands it’s incredibly tough to win such a big game.
The sportsman, who is married to Gisele Bundchen, explained: “I think you realize the sun comes up the next morning. Your life goes on but, you know, those games live with you for the rest of your life.
“That’s part of being an athlete. That’s part of being in a very competitive sport.”
The Patriots’ loss gave the Eagles their first ever Super Bowl victory but five-time champion Brady said how “proud” he was of everyone involved.
“We overcame a lot of adversity like you always do in order to get to that game but we just came up a little bit short.”
Super Bowl aside, Brady has been hard at work filming his Facebook Watch series “Tom vs. Times”, and Strahan aired a clip from the final episode on Monday’s “GMA”.
One adorable moment showed Brady’s five-year-old daughter Vivian squealing pre-Super Bowl: “Daddy, we are here to make you win,” to which Brady replied: “Yeah, you are, you’re going to help Daddy win. I know you’re going to cheer so loud.”
Bundchen and Brady are also parents to eight-year-old son Benjamin. Brady, who opens up on the series about balancing a successful career with his hectic family life, also has a son, John, 10, from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
