Tom Brady won himself yet another conference championship game on Sunday as he defeated the Green Bay Packers to head to his 10th Super Bowl. It’s a massive achievement in what has been a legendary career for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers superstar. On February 7th, the Bucs will face the Kansas City Chiefs, and there is no doubt it will be a game for the ages.
Unfortunately, Brady has gone through a lot of adversity this season, as it was revealed that both his mother and father had bad cases of COVID-19. While speaking to ESPN, Tom Brady Sr. noted that he was in the hospital for three weeks and that it was the fight of his life.
“I was in the hospital with COVID for almost 3 weeks and my wife was sick with COVID at the same time,” Brady Sr. said. “We didn’t even see the first 2 games of the year. First 2 games I’ve ever missed in his career because I was sick as a dog and my wife was sick as a dog. It was a matter of life and death just like anybody [who] goes into the hospital … serious stuff.”
The Bradys always go to Tom’s games but this season, that simply wasn’t possible, which is something that had a negative impact on Brady’s play to start the season. Thankfully, Brady’s parents are doing well now, and are resting comfortably at home. COVID-19 is no joke and it can effect everyone.
