For whatever reason, people are super obsessed with asking Tom Brady about all of the regular things he's done in his life. Since he's probably the greatest quarterback of all time, people find it really hard to believe that he's also just a regular person once you take away the football aspect of his life.
Yesterday while talking to the media during the lead-up to the Super Bowl, Brady told a story about the one and only time he ever tried chewing tobacco. He was visiting his uncles in Minnesota when he was a kid and they were on their way back from a fishing trip when young Tom asked to try some chewing tobacco. His uncles agreed, but told him that if they gave him some, he had to keep it in his mouth the entire 30-minute drive home. Not surprisingly, Brady made it about five minutes before he was puking his guts out on the side of the road!
Oh, that Tom Brady! He's just like the rest of us!
