BOSTON - Over 108 million Americans watched last year’s Super Bowl. But there is one football player who won’t have this year’s Super Bowl blaring from his television set.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said that he could “care less” about watching Super Bowl 48 on his weekly radio appearance on WEEI.
“I don’t have much of a rooting interest, truthfully,” Brady said. "Those games are hard to watch. I don't really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season's over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That's pretty much how I feel."
Brady’s Patriots lost to the Denver Broncos 26-16 in the AFC Championship Game last Sunday.
It’s the second-straight time that a Brady-led team has lost to a Peyton Manning-led team in the conference championship game. In 2006, Manning’s Indianapolis Colts prevailed over the Patriots 38-34.
