Tom Brady Sr. opened up about his own battle with COVID-19 in a new interview on Mike Greenberg’s Greeny Show. The father of the Bucs quarterback revealed that he spent nearly three weeks in the hospital around the start of the season and missed the Bucs’ first two games.
Brady Sr. said his wife, Galynn, a breast cancer survivor, also battled COVID but didn’t need to be hospitalized.
“For the first two games when I was in the hospital, I didn’t even care if they were playing, much less missing the game,” Brady Sr. said. “It was a matter of life and death, just like anybody who goes to the hospital. That’s serious stuff.
“Tommy fought through it, and so now it’s in the rearview mirror.”
Brady Sr. assured that he and Galynn are healthy and “everything is good” now. He’s also making headlines for describing Bill Belichick as a coach/GM on “a little bit of a hot seat” as the Patriots look to improve upon a 7-9 season. Meanwhile, his son is in the Super Bowl for the 10th time.
