Key Words: Tom Brady jokes with Biden at the White House: ‘They started calling me Sleepy Tom’

The NFL champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers visited the White House on Tuesday, and seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady was packing some one-liners. While addressing an audience including his teammates and President Joe Biden, the quarterback, who turns 44 next month, referenced a play during the 2020 season when he forgot what down it was during a game. “We had a game in Chicago where I forgot what down it was. I lost track of one down in 21 years of playing, and they started calling me Sleepy Tom.”

This, of course, was a reference to the “Sleepy Joe” nickname that former President Donald Trump and other Trump-aligned political figures sought to hang on Biden in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election. There was more to come from Brady. “Not a lot of people think we could’ve won,” Brady joked. “In fact, I think about 40% of the people still don’t think we won.” “I understand that,” Biden, cognizant that majorities of self-declared Republicans have continued in the eight months since Nov. 3 to tell pollsters they doubt the election’s outcome, chimed in with a smile.

Championship teams from the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB usually visit the White House after their seasons end — it’s a tradition that dates back to 1865.
