Tom Brady visited The Big House on Saturday afternoon as his tour of throwing footballs to everyone but New England Patriots players continued. After inevitably growing tired of sending his wife, Gisele Bündchen, on crossing patterns in the backyard, Brady took the field at Michigan Stadium to play catch with Jim Harbaugh before the No. 4 Wolverines played host to Colorado.
Always the fashion icon, Harbaugh wore cleats and receiver gloves as one Wolverines quarterback played catch with another. According to ESPN, it was Brady’s first visit to Michigan since he finished his playing career there in 1999. Brady has time for the visit, of course, because he was suspended for the first four games of the NFL season. You know, for the life of me I can’t remember why he was suspended in the first place. That’s strange.
Anyway, here’s another photo of a professional quarterback throwing a football to an older man in pleated khakis.
On Friday night, Brady threw passes to his son in the Michigan State end zone, posting video of it on his Facebook page with the hashtag #bradytobrady. It was all very cute.
I’m mostly just relieved to see the real Brady in person and not that horrifying Tom Brady mask someone wore on The Today Show earlier in the week. Please keep making public appearances, Tom Brady. Make the demons stay away.
