Tom Brady Refuses to Watch Hard Knocks

Tom Brady, Super Bowl winning quarterback for the New England Patriots, has a lot on his plate: a team to lead, a kid to parent, a supermodel to appease, magazines in which to pose. He’s a busy dude. It would be understandable if he didn’t have time to watch HBO’s Hard Knocks. In fact, he refuses to check out the show for another reason entirely: It’s about the rival New York Jets.

“I hate the Jets, so I refuse to support that show,” the quarterback told the AP.

Brady, ever the diplomat, added, “”I’d love to say a lot of mean things, but I’d rather not do that, either.”

Considering the show’s ratings jumped 37 percent from last year, HBO might not need Brady’s eyeballs after all.
