Tom Brady posts hilarious Photoshopped pic to wish Boston Celtics good luck (photo)

Tom Brady: NFL’s Player King of Social Media? You better believe it.

One of the more surprising off-the-field developments of the NFL season has been how quickly and brilliantly the New England Patriots quarterback has taken to utilizing his official Facebook account to amuse and entertain, not to mention connect with his legions of devoted fans.

Brady delivered another zinger on Wednesday. With the Boston Celtics set to tip-off its 2014-15 NBA regular season campaign against the Brooklyn Nets at TD Garden on Wednesday night, the Photoshop-wielding wisenheiemer posted a brilliantly hilarious photo to Facebook in order to wish his fellow Boston professional sports team-playing brethren the best of luck.

Taking a photo from his glory days as a youth basketball player, Brady — or someone on his staff — Photoshopped a green jersey and Celtics headband on the image from Tommy Boy’s halcyon days of youth.

“Good luck this season to the 2014 Celtics!” Brady writes on the social media post.

Fantastic. Bravo, Tom Brady, but it looks like little Tommy was carrying a little extra baby fat in that pic. But that’s what makes that much funnier.

Once again, the veteran signal caller demonstrates that not only does he have a great sense of humor about his well-polished public image but that he also understands how to use social media in the right way.

The latter previously was illustrated earlier this week when he posted an image of he and wife Gisele signalling how the Patriots put up a 51-spot on the Chicago Bears in a severe beatdown.

Yeah, posting a photo of yourself posing cutely with your supermodel wife? Never hurts.

Brady also wrote on Facebook, “We are on to Denver” in the post, a clever jab at his head coach Bill Belichick, something he has done on a previous occasion as well.
