Tom Brady jokes about getting kicked out of park in message to Bucs fans
Fans in and around the Tampa area are understandably thrilled to have Tom Brady as their quarterback heading into the 2020 season, and they have done their best to welcome the six-time Super Bowl champion with open arms. Brady appreciates all that warmth — with the exception of one minor incident, of course.
Brady shared a video message via the Buccaneers’ official Twitter account on Sunday, and he thanked fans for welcoming him and his family to the area over the past month. However, Brady could not resist alluding to the recent incident in which he was asked to leave a local park.

“I’m so happy to be in Tampa Bay, and I wanted to say thank you guys for welcoming me and my family into your community with open arms, outside of getting kicked out of the park the other day,” Brady said. “I’m so excited to be a Buc.”
Brady has hit a couple of minor speed bumps while adjusting to life in a new city, and being asked to leave a public park was one of them. The 42-year-old was busted working out at a park when it was closed due to social distancing rules, so he had to leave. He also accidentally walked into a stranger’s house while trying to visit with Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich. As if that situation wasn’t embarrassing enough, some NFL executives think there should be disciplinary action since Brady may have been in violation of league rules.
When you spend 20 years of your career in one place, starting fresh can be tough. Brady is getting a small taste of that, but we expect him to be nicely settled in by the start of the season.
