Tom Brady will not watch the Super Bowl


The Super Bowl is America’s most-watched television show every year, but Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won’t be among the 100 million or more watching.

Brady said on WEEI that he doesn’t think he’d be able to enjoy tuning in to watch the Super Bowl as a fan, a week after his own team was eliminated with a loss to the Broncos in the AFC Championship Game.

“I don’€™t have much of a rooting interest, truthfully,” Brady said. “Those games are hard to watch. I don’€™t really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season’€™s over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That’€™s pretty much how I feel.”

So while you’re watching the Super Bowl, Brady will be watching Downton Abbey or True Detective instead.
