The group discussed their respective plans for Thanksgiving, with Brady sharing how he usually spends the holiday.
“Thanksgiving there’s a lot to be thankful for,” he began. “But you only get about four hours to enjoy it. Practice usually ends about 1 or 2 pm, you eat about 3:30 and then you’re getting ready for the next day of practice. And then same thing with Christmas.”
He added, “I’m looking forward to the time when I’m done playing football so that I can have some of those more normal holidays that I had growing up that were important where the family’s all together.”
