Tom Brady officially became a “Florida man” after two incidents happened in the Tampa Bay area following him taking his talents from the Patriots to the Bucs.
Not only were they joked about by social media, but now it is being talked about at his past home.
Following a recent incident in Tampa, where the former Patriots quarterback was kicked out of a park for violating the city’s stay-at-home order, Boston mayor Marty Walsh ribbed Brady for not only leaving New England, but also for his closed Tampa park incident.
“If Tom Brady stayed … There are some exceptions I would make and having Tom Brady throw a football, I probably maybe would have looked the other way on that one,” Walsh joked on The Greg Hill Show. “But he goes to Tampa Bay and that’s what he gets, getting thrown out of the park. So it serves him right.”
Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the offseason after two decades with the New England Patriots.
Tampa Mayor Jane Castor actually issued a public apology to Brady on Twitter.
“Tom, my apologies for the miscommunication when you arrived — not the best first impression,” Castor said last week. “But given my law enforcement background, I couldn’t help but have someone investigate the sighting of a G.O.A.T. running wild in one of our beautiful city parks. … No harm – no foul, and thanks for being a good sport!”
If the coronavirus doesn’t claim the 2020 NFL season, the Bucs are expected to be one of the top teams in the NFC and qualify for the postseason for the first time in over 12 years.
