Tampa mayor apologizes to NFL’s Tom Brady – World News


When it comes to first impressions, Tampa didn’t really give a warm welcome to one of its newest and most famous residents when NFL superstar Tom Brady was kicked out of a park in the downtown during his training.

Mayor Jane Castor tried to make amends by issuing a letter of apology.

“Tom, my apologies for the miscommunication when you arrived – not the best first impression,” the mayor wrote in a letter she posted on social media on Saturday.

“But given my background in law enforcement, I couldn’t help but ask someone to investigate the sighting of a GOAT going wild in one of our beautiful urban parks. “

The 42-year-old quarterback, widely known as “the greatest of all time”, has six Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots and recently joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brady was working in the park on Monday and was spotted by a staff patrol, who ordered the quadruple Super Bowl MVP to leave because the park was closed to the public due to the coronavirus outbreak.

In his letter, the mayor thanked Brady for “being a good sport.”

The mayor thanked Brady and his wife, Gisele Bundchen, for their recent donation of 750,000 meals to Feeding Tampa Bay.

The letter was also addressed to Rob Gronkowski, more commonly known as “Gronk,” who also forced the Patriots to join the Tampa Bay roster.

With so many “wonderful activities,” said the mayor, listing the region’s long list of offers, “you have to be ready to SPONSOR … but not too hard (I’m talking to you Gronk).”

Perhaps she was referring to Gronkowski’s penchant for playing hard on and off the field.

Tampa will host the Super Bowl next year and the city is counting on Brady and Gronkowski to help the Buccaneers be the first team to win an NFL championship in their own backyard.

With the coronavirus epidemic preventing large gatherings, the mayor said the reception should be virtual for now, saying that “a good reception in Tampa will have to wait a while”.
