Quarterback Tom Brady turns 45 today. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers marksman is still going strong after more than two decades at the top level. Brady has won seven Super Bowl rings and is on the hunt for his eighth this season.
Today, however, it’s not about his footballing achievements, but about his birthday and the cake his Buccaneers teammates gave him.
In a post on Twitter, Tampa Bay running back Leonard Fournette was photographed next to the shot-caller’s cake, which is simply a goat’s head with a message that reads:
“Happy 100th Birthday.”
The team cheekily took out the 45-year-old’s age, hilariously noting that it’s actually his 100th birthday.
Fournette also posted on his personal Twitter page wishing Brady a happy birthday.
Brady gets better with age
The 45-year-old had one of his best campaigns of all time last season, throwing for 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns.
The fact that he seems to only get better with age is a testament to what he’s doing off the field in terms of preparing for games. It shows how efficiently he regenerates his body thanks to the TB12 method.
As he enters his 23rd NFL season, the road to a Super Bowl this year could be a bit difficult for him after losing Ryan Jensen to a knee injury. He’s also without Rob Gronkowski, who has retired, but the Buccaneers have taken on Julio Jones to expand the arms at the 45-year-old’s disposal.
Many have suggested this could be the GOAT’s final year in the league, but we thought so last year, right?
The NFC is significantly weaker than the AFC this year, which bodes well for Brady that he’s at least making it into the postseason. The Buccaneers’ division is relatively easy, with the New Orleans Saints providing the only challenge to their winning record.
However, should they drop out of the division, the only team likely to scare them is the defending Super Bowl champion in the Los Angeles Rams.
One can only imagine that if the 45-year-old lifts an incredible eighth Super Bowl trophy at the end of the season, his illustrious career will surely end.
Until then, we can only consider ourselves honored to be privileged to witness Tom Brady’s historic achievement.
