While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered a heartbreaker at the hands of the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Tom Brady is not focusing too much about it. If there is one thing he learned about the life of the legendary Kobe Bryant, it is to enjoy every moment.
During the latest episode of his Let’s Go podcast, Brady opted to look at the positive side of the loss and noted how he was happy to have played the game and be part of it. He highlighted that no one can play the game forever, and so he is just thankful to be there and compete for his family, the fans and the organization.
“We never know what’s going to happen in the future, we really don’t,” Brady said, per Rick Stroud of Tampa Bay Times.
“I mean, Kobe Bryant, a friend of ours, God rest his soul. You think you’re going to live forever, we’re not. We think we’re going to play forever, we’re not. What can we do? We can enjoy the moments that we have. As difficult as it was to lose the game (Sunday), I was glad I played in it, and I was glad I was a part of it.”
Tom Brady has a good point here. While it is easy to be frustrated given the expectations of another Super Bowl, there is no denying that the team still had a great season by their standards.
They also competed at the highest level, and while they fell short of defending their title, they didn’t go down without a fight.
Brady’s future remains in limbo as retirement talks heat up. And if Buccaneers fans have really seen the last of TB12, they better be sure to have enjoyed it.
