Tom Brady talks about ‘Funny or Die,’ dancing at Wes Welker’s wedding … and some football

In an interview with SI.com’s “Extra Mustard” editor Jimmy Traina, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady talked about a variety of topics, including his work in a recent “Funny or Die” video, the evolution of his hair and whether or not he plans to dance at Wes Welker’s upcoming wedding. (“Hell yeah, I’ll dance.”) He also talked some football, including whether or not he thought Rob Gronkowski had a chance at the final Hail Mary at the end of Super Bowl XLVI.
“You know, it’s interesting because this is the first time someone’s asked me that question. I threw it and when I let it go, I knew we were gonna have a chance. The ball got batted up in the air and I saw it tip 60 yards away from me, but then I got knocked down, so I fell to the ground and I saw the ball get deflected. Unfortunately, though, I looked over and saw the bad guys running on the field.”
He also touches on losing two Super Bowls to the Giants:
“We play them every year in the preseason. Geographically, we’re very close, so yeah, there’s something to losing to them twice in the Super Bowl in the most meaningful game of the year and the most meaningful game of our lives. You think about some bad memories from games you lose and there’s that blue uniform with white numbers. That’s what you think about it.”
He also talks about his “second favorite team,” the Jets, and is asked whether or not he could play for Rex Ryan.
“We’ve had some trouble with them. Last year, we beat them twice. The year before we split and they beat us in the playoffs. So they’re a good team. I got a lot of respect for that team. They play hard. They’re well coached. It’s a heated rivalry. There’s no love lost between the two teams.”
