NICK EICHER, HOST: Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend and it will not feature Tom Brady. Of course, we all know he retired for a second and final time, he says, it’s for good.
BRADY: I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first, so.
Yes, a low-key retirement announcement from Surfside, Florida, on a public beach, that the sands of time caught up with the ten-time Super Bowl quarterback.
Now, speaking of sand, did you hear this one? Someone had the presence of mind to go scoop up the sand that Brady appeared to be standing on and it’s going to sell for about $100-thousand.
Everything this guy touches seems to turn to gold.
And if you can believe it, he’ll probably make more in retirement than he did on the field. One sportswriter put it this way: It took the greatest football player of all time more than 20 years to earn $333 million. He’ll rake in $375 million in half the time as an analyst on TV.
