FOXBORO, Mass. — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is finally on Twitter.
On Monday, April Fools' Day, TB12 tweeted for the first time:
“I’m retiring. In my spare time, I’ll be tweeting #LFG.”
An hour later, he tweeted, “Was this a bad joke?”
Unsurprisingly, "Family and Football" is the six-time Super Bowl champion's bio. Family has always been priority No. 1 for Brady, coming before the game he has mastered, as evidenced in his six-episode Facebook Watch series 'Tom vs Time.'
The 41-year-old's imminent retirement is both a burdensome reality for Patriots fans and a welcomed godsend for the rest of the league, so the tweet either had you panicked then overjoyed, or excited then disappointed.
