Punxsutawney, PA - Less than 24-hours after officially announcing his retirement from the NFL, Tom Brady appeared in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to begin his new job as Lead Groundhog Handler.
"Honestly, I never really wanted to play football. I always dreamed of handling groundhogs," Brady told reporters. "So, yeah, this is better than the Super Bowl."
The legendary quarterback was on hand as the legendary groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter.
"I tried to call an audible on the six weeks of winter," Brady joked. "But Phil wasn't having it, and he's the boss."
Brady says he plans to move his wife Gisele and their children to Punxsutawney over the next few weeks as he begins his full-time role of taking care of Phil and his groundhog companions.
When asked if he would ever return to football, Brady said, "Yeah, actually, I'm hoping to teach these critters a few plays. Maybe start a league. Right now, I'm just focused on building the team in the off-season."
