Tom Brady discusses 'leash' used during Packers game
Who's a good boy? Who's a good boy?
During the third quarter of the Patriots 26-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers, CBS cameras caught Tom Brady on the sideline being led around by an assistant on what looked like a leash. Turns out it wasn't. Brady said it was a resistance band, which he seemed to laugh about when asked about it.
“Oh man. That’s just … a leash … it’s a resistance band,” Brady said, laughing, on WEEI’s “Dennis and Callahan Show” during his weekly interview, via ESPN.com. “I was just trying to stay warm and that helps me stay really warm. It’s a great exercise to do.
“When I’m out there in the game, I don’t get a lot of chance to run around, like the receivers who are running the whole game. So I just like to stay really loose, as loose as I can in inclement weather. So that’s what that was for.”
Brady capped off the subject by saying "a leash, that's pretty good."
And of course, with most things these days, the Internet took notice and have been photoshopping Brady and the "leash" into other pictures, like this one, which is featured in Rowan's piece.
