Wait until commissioner Roger Goodell learns how the New England Patriots star quarterback caught Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers winning the Super Bowl in 2011.
At the time recuperating after an injury to his foot, Brady admitted to the press this week that he had watched an illegal stream of the game online.
"Last year, I was rehabbing my foot in Costa Rica watching the game on an illegal Super Bowl website and now I'm actually playing in the game, so it's pretty cool," Brady told MassLive.com.
