Brady had been discussing his alma mater, Michigan's monumental win over archrival Ohio State last weekend, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneer couldn't help himself but dream about Jack one day experiencing the same unparalleled rush of emotions.
Brady, who was in Ann Arbor from 19995 to 1999, walked down memory lane for a bit before the reminiscing triggered his fatherly instincts.
"I feel so great for those seniors because you go out with that victory," he said. "And I think those guys, what I saw with the joy in that stadium, and the crowd rushed the field. ... I had a little future Wolverine, my son Jack, sitting on the bed with me as I was jumping around and we were wrestling and I said, ‘That’s where you’re gonna be! You’re gonna be in the ‘Big House’ someday. You’re gonna be the starting quarterback for Michigan.'"
The emotions clearly got the best of Brady, who later admitted his wife, Gisele Bündchen, had to put him in check.
"And my wife was like, ‘Just let him be what he wants to be for god’s sake!'" said Brady with a laughter. "It was a great day for our family."
Brady, who can't wait to retire from the NFL so he can reallyenjoy Thanksgiving, shares Jack with actress Bridget Moynahan. If nothing else, Brady's setting up all of his kids for success, at least when it comes to their nutrition. Brady's personal chef, Allan Campbell, revealed all of Brady's kids eat the same meals their parents do about 90 percent of the time.
