We can get used to this. Tom Brady hopped back on Twitter for the first time since his April Fools Day debut on the social network, and this time had an amusing response for former teammate Aqib Talib.
Brady, of course, could have chosen professional baseball after the Montreal Expos drafted him in the 18th round of the 1995 draft. Fortunately for New England, he stuck with football without ever signing in Montreal. But perhaps he and Talib would be interested in giving it a try, if they have a chance to make baseball player money.
Talib tweeted on Tuesday “When I see all these baseball contracts,” along with a photo of him tossing out the first pitch at a Tampa Bay Rays game. The Rams cornerback ostensibly responded to the news that the Atlanta Braves signed 21-year-old outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. to an eight-year extension worth $100 million.
Brady’s response? Hey, how about I give baseball a try now:
I’ve been trying to get the Expos back on the line for the past month! https://t.co/pXohflCmhW— Tom Brady (@TomBrady) April 3, 2019
The Expos Photoshop job is actually a throwback to a three-year-old Brady Facebook post. But the timing was perfect to re-share it.
The funniest part … with all that Brady has already accomplished in the NFL, how can you doubt that he would have overcome the odds in baseball too?
If this is what Brady’s Twitter feed will keep gifting to his fans, he’s well on his way to becoming the GOAT of social media too.
