Brady Sr. said:

“I've got two kids on the East Coast and a two kids here on the West Coast and all the family is able to rally around during the games to get together. And so that was that was one of the very special parts of this 23 years, not not the football part, but the opportunity to get closer to my daughters and my grandkids. and my sons in law and so that was a that was just a very warm experience together.
"And then obviously to win the win Super Bowls. And boy, they're great. I think I am a little bit like an ex athlete, that I also remember three losses very vividly. That doesn't go away. You kind of take, you take for granted the victories but the losses are the things that hurt Tom Brady."
