The Super Bowl champion New England Patriots were honored by President Obama at the White House on Thursday — without their quarterback, Tom Brady.I wouldn't go either.
In a deflating move, Brady blew off the president and his teammates, citing a prior family commitment.
Obama was a good sport and acknowledged Brady during the White House lawn event.
The president congratulated Brady for his role in leading the Patriots to become the only team to ever rally from a double-digit, fourth-quarter deficit in football’s biggest game.
“There was of course Tom Brady, an all-time great who couldn’t be here with us today,” Obama said, “but who engineered a pair of surgical touchdown drives.”
