It’s been unseasonably cool in Tampa Bay the last few days, but nothing to what Tom Brady had to deal with in New England for 20 years this time of year.
Speaking to reporters Thursday, Brady acknowledged he’s loving the weather in Florida and he won’t ever live in the northeast again.
“The last couple of days have felt like early October mornings where I have been in the northeast for a long time,” he said. “I’ve been loving wearing a hoodie for a couple days. It’s amazing to be at this point in the season and still be outside practicing. Today turned into a really nice day. I know we have a warm one coming up on Sunday.
“I always came down to Florida late in the year. We always played the Dolphins, they were in our conference, and it was pretty tough to adjust to. Just being in it really prepares you for the heat because it definitely takes a toll if you’re not used to it.
“I’ve loved being outside every day and I think being a native Floridian, I was a native Californian for a long time in my life and I went away from it for about 25 years, and you won’t catch me dead living in the northeast anymore. I am loving the warm weather. It’s been a great feeling.”
Brady still hasn’t sold his Brookline home and he and Gisele Bundchen also have a place in New York City.
The Buccaneers will host the Vikings on Sunday.
