Tom Brady admits to partying hard after Super Bowl

Tom Brady’s obsession with diet and devotion to his extremely prohibitive “TB12 Method” is the stuff of legend, but even he treated himself to some typically off-limit items following the New England Patriots’ victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

“I had a great time. I definitely didn’t get to sleep,” Brady admitted during a surprise phone call Tuesday into WEEI’s “Mut & Callahan” ahead of the team’s Super Bowl championship parade. “It was a great party. It was right at the hotel. I got back, changed, went down, had a lot of friends there.

“Everyone got to celebrate together. Then we went and watched at the concert a bunch of the performances. We certainly had more drinks than I’ve probably had in a whole year combined in one night. So it was a lot of fun. A lot of fun.”

It’s great to hear that Brady cut loose and partied down a bit in the wake of his sixth Super Bowl victory. That said, it’s a certainty that Brady — after Tuesday’s festivities of course — returns to form soon enough and is back to his usual routine and rigid dietary regimen.

It merits noting that Brady has admitted to indulging himself from time to time in the past, but it’s a rare occasion. That of course means that the most decadent thing Brady will allow himself anytime soon is his well-documented treat of choice.
