Episode 3 is a really good chance to see what drives Tom Brady to be Tom Brady. We see the private side of the well known private man. This episode takes you back as far as Brady’s childhood. It discusses everything from his parents, to his children.
There were a couple standouts in this episode that will watch you attention. From feeling responsible for emotionally supporting his parents, to fully understanding that he can’t always be there for his kids in the perfect way, Tom explains the hardships that come along with his decision to continue playing the sport he loves. He loves his family and, above all, his kids. He mentions that he is incredibly happy with how his family allows him to continue doing what he loves. That support is what gets him through it all. So here it goes, a brief rundown on the episode that’s totally out of order but whatever pops into my head will flow out into this blog.
The exact moment where Tom delivers the Super Bowl ring to his mother is in this episode, and its pretty awesome. She was extremely excited, but Tom seemed to take it the heaviest. We see Tom on the verge of tears as he watches his mother filling with joy over the new bling.
We all know Brady’s relationship with his parents is a huge factor in his life, and seeing him in this setting really allows you to see the man behind the legend.
Moving on, Brady brings us on that trip to Bejing with his son, and allows you to see just how much he is invested in his kids.
Aside from the emotional end, we get a chance to see how big Tom is in China, i mean holy hell, the man is enormous.
Back home, Tom sits with his son and explains the importance of watching film. Theres a little moment there where his son explains how he was upset because he couldn’t get a 70 dollar toy at Toys R Us. Tom responds with how he can only get it if he makes enough money through a LOT (he emphasizes A LOT) of chores. So we get a glimpse of the parent in Brady. He seems to reflect himself in the way he treats his kids. He gives them the world, if they’re willing to work for it.
