Tom Brady on playing in cold weather: ‘I’m a (bleeping) machine! C’mon baby!’


The weather forecast for the Foxborough area on Saturday afternoon gives every indication that it will be a frigid affair when the New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens at Gillette Stadium in a heavily anticipated playoff showdown.

While the forecast (via indicates it will be a sunny day in Massachusetts, the high will be only 20 degrees with winds out of west blowing anywhere between 10 and 20 miles per hour. Hardly “Ice Bowl” conditions, of course, but it will be a chilly day nevertheless.

When asked about the frigid forecast on Wednesday, Tom Brady shrugged it off, and that’s putting it mildly.

The Patriots quarterback, upon an inquiry regarding his routine for getting dressed for action when the temperatures drop, let it all hang out.

“I know exactly what to wear,” Brady said, reportedly through a black, polyester headwarmer that covered his face entirely, save for his nose and eyes, per Comcast SportsNet New England’s Tom Curran. “I know how many layers to wear every degree.”

And then Brady issued a presumably tongue-in-cheek proclamation that put everyone on notice that he is a cold weather iron man of sorts.

“I’m a (bleeping) machine, man,” Brady announced. “I’m a (bleeping) machine! C’mon baby!”

Apparently, as far as Brady is concerned, the weather in New England on Saturday can be downright Antarctic, for all he cares. Bring it on, Old Man Winter. Bring. It. On.
