Even if this looks incredibly familiar, Tom Brady announced his retirement on Wednesday. This isn’t Groundhog Day, and you haven’t gone back in time. One year to the day after his initial retirement, Brady announced his second retirement in a video he shared on Twitter. This time, he is retiring “for good.”
You couldn’t look at social media for more than 20 to 30 seconds without seeing a Brady tribute video or article, all of which praised him for his exceptional and unique career when Brady announced his retirement on February 1, 2022. Due to the fact that Brady actually did this 365 days ago, there were more jokes this time.
There were some fans who just straight up don’t believe Brady is seriously done, even though he said he was retiring “for good” in his video.
Other supporters took some time to enjoy the memories of Brady losing to their favorite teams in crucial games that he had left for them. Philadelphia Eagles fans were particularly ecstatic because their club, which will play in the Super Bowl once more in less than two weeks, was the last to defeat Brady in the championship game.
One eagle-eyed Twitter user pointed out that Brady’s announcement comes just a few days before the movie “80 for Brady” comes out.
If that’s the case, congrats to him. His life and work revolve around it. It is his prerogative to make the announcement of his retirement in order to increase the box office revenue for a film in which he has a significant role. He didn’t play 23 seasons of elite football to let someone else decide the outcome.
