ATLANTA (WPRI) — Tom Brady of the New England Patriots is known for getting competitive, and according to his father he’s always been this way.
Brady recalled a time as a young kid when he took a loss out on a remote.
“I just remember losing and taking the remote and slamming it down over and over again,” said Brady.
Brady’s father told ESPN that his son also threw that remote at the wall, leaving behind a hole.
Brady recalled another occasion when he got competitive while golfing with his father
“About the sixth hole I hit a bad shot and I took my club and I just started slamming it into the ground,” said Brady. “My dad took me off the course, brought me to the car and said ‘if you do that ever again.’ Man, I was crying, I was so sad, I learned a great lesson.”
Brady, however, credits his success to learning how to channel his competitive drive.
