Tom Brady, Bruce Arians and Joe Biden have some things in common. Brady is the oldest Super Bowl-winning quarterback (and player) in NFL history, Arians is the oldest Super Bowl-winning head coach, and Biden is the oldest person to ever assume office as President of the United States. They all achieved these incredible milestones early in 2021. And, perhaps most importantly, they all did so fair and square.
Brady, Arians and the Bucs attended the White House on Tuesday afternoon for their Super Bowl ceremony with Biden, who welcomed the team with open arms and kicked off the event with a brief speech. A few speakers later, Brady came to the podium for his first White House visit since 2005, and he was prepared with some great jokes that Biden could easily relate to.
"Not a lot of people think that we could have won," Brady said about fans' expectations of the Buccaneers. "In fact, I think about 40 percent of people still don't think we won."
Obviously a reference to the fact that there are still people who won't accept that Biden truly won the election, Brady received an acknowledgment from Biden about the joke, who said he does, in fact, understand that feeling. Brady also added some levity to the nickname that Donald Trump often bestowed upon Biden — "Sleepy Joe" — with a funny anecdote that he shares after his first joke.
Bravo, Brady. If his football career comes to an end soon, we could definitely see comedy as an alternate post-playing career option. Fortunately, we will probably see at least a couple more years of Brady on the football field before we have to start thinking about that.
Two years? That's it? President Biden doesn't think so, giving Brady not two years, but two decades left based on his physical appearance.
