That Tom Brady Super Bowl Invitation Is Much More Hilarious Now that They’ve Suspended Him (Pic)
Last month, Tom Brady received a letter from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell inviting him to take part in festivities commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl next February. Then Brady posted photos of the letter on Facebook with a funny little quip, and nobody thought anything of it.
However, eight days after Brady posted the photo, the Wells Report came out. And five days after the Wells Report came out, the NFL suspended Brady for four games. So now that invitation and Brady’s subsequent Facebook post are a lot more interesting.
Here’s the post:
And here’s a transcript of the letter in case you can’t make it out:
The rich history of the National Football League is highlighted by fantastic games, iconic moments and incredible talent. You are part of an elite group that has earned one of the most prestigious honors in sports as one of only 43 players to have been named Super Bowl Most Valuable Player.
Your performance in Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII, XLIX is an enduring legacy of a great performance on the biggest stage in sports.
The 2015 season culminates in Super Bowl 50. To commemorate this milestone, we are launching a year-long celebration of the first 49 Super Bowls that will conclude with this year’s game in San Francisco next February. As part of this celebration, we will honor your important place in Super Bowl History.
There will be many opportunities for you to be involved. These will include honoring your high school through our “Golden Football” program, attending your NFL team’s homecoming game next season and being featured prominently on our NFL Media platforms. We will recognize the MVPs throughout Super Bowl week, including at our nationally televised NFL Home show. As our guest in San Francisco on Super Bowl Sunday, all MVPs will participate in an on-field ceremony that will air on CBS prior to kickoff.
Tracy Perlman and April Donnelly from my office will follow up with you soon with additional details.
Thank you for all you have contributed to our great game.
Congratulations, Tom. You’ll be featured on various NFL Media platforms!
Man, this is too much. NFL you crack me up.
