Tom Brady is still adjusting to retirement — but at least he’s got a sense of humor.
The now-retired football legend and soon-to-be Fox Sports commentator fired off a pretty funny tweet during the Super Bowl on Sunday night, suggesting the seven-time Super Bowl winner (out of nine Super Bowl appearances) was at a loss for what to do with himself in the fairly unfamiliar position of “spectator.”
Brady, 45, tweeted a GIF from the 2006 sports comedy “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” that stars Will Ferrell as a NASCAR racer. The clip features Ferrell saying, “I’m not sure what to do with my hands. “
The post tickled plenty of funny bones, getting viewed more than 850,000 times and drawing more than 13,000 “likes” within just a couple of hours.
It also inspired plenty of jokes in the comments, such as quips that Brady would unretire (again) by the second quarter.
And plenty of brands, including Yum! Brands’s
Pizza Hut and Anheuser-Busch’s
Natural Light beer, tried riding Brady’s coattails by suggesting he fill his hands with their products.
But what is Brady up to? He’s poised to start as an NFL broadcaster in 2024 as part of his $375 million Fox deal.
