And that's just what the father of the most famous quarterback in the world did last night at Joe Fish Seafood Restaurant, as part of a "Theology on Tap" series hosted by St. Michael's parish.
About 70 men attended the quarterly lecture series, which includes beer and Boston sports.
His son, better known as Tommy Jr., - quarterback of the New England Patriots - understandably is not so outspoken, especially during the season.
"People probably have a hard time believing that, but it's true," said Brady, who recently opened a satellite office for his estate planning company in Boston.
"Tommy doesn't have a lot of interests during the football season. He doesn't have time. It's always the next opponent," said Brady. "I think that's why the Patriots are so successful. They are still eight games from (19-0). You can't win eight games on Sunday."
Brady took questions for more than an hour on a variety of subjects relating to his son, who turned 30 on Aug. 7, even going back to his temper as a boy playing sports.
He recalled two memories from his youth sports that molded him today.
One was a basketball team he was on in sixth grade. According to Mr. Brady, seven of his son's nine teammates had "two left feet."
"I was the coach and we lost every game. We got killed. I remember one game was 70-6 or something like that," said Brady. "He was a very good player, but it didn't matter. It was a good lesson about the importance of team. You can't do it alone. You need teammates."
The other was on a golf course, referring to his unparalleled competitive nature.
"He definitely inherited his competitiveness from me. Plus, I never let my kids beat me," said Brady. "Well, this one day, he was 11, we're playing golf and I've beaten him on every hole. We have these bets where I lose a dollar or he has to wash my car. And about the seventh hole, after several double-or-nothings, he owes me about 50 car washes.
"He hit a bad shot and throws his club halfway down the fairway," said Brady. "I was ticked off. I told him to get his club and go back the car and wait for me until I finished. I get to the car and he's crying his eyes out."
