Tom Brady wears three Super Bowl rings, sleeps next to a super model, and boasts a supersized wallet. Oh yeah, and he can chug a beer faster than you can, too.
Ross Tucker, a former New England Patriots center who now writes, relayed a story at Sports on Earth conveying the quarterback’s competitiveness. Nine years ago, Brady traveled to a Foxboro, Massachusetts, bar to partake in a beer-drinking challenge with rookies. Tucker, a journeyman lineman out of Princeton, wondered why Brady had bothered to participate. He writes that
some of the veteran offensive linemen started talking to the rookies about a chugging contest. No big deal for these guys and given that they were fresh out of college, you would think they’d be at the top of their game. I was surprised to see Brady take part. The rookies looked at the seemingly pretty boy quarterback and laughed. I think I snickered myself.
We all should’ve known better.
I still have never seen anybody chug a beer faster than Tom Brady. You should’ve seen the way he slammed down his cup — it was like he was spiking the ball after a TD. It was hilarious. It was awesome. It was textbook Brady.
The previously undefeated Cincinnati Bengals gleaned a sense of “textbook Brady” Sunday night when the fiery competitor led the Patriots to a 43-17 victory after getting blown out the previous Monday by the Kansas City Chiefs.
