1. Imagine you’re at Target and you push your cart filled with a box of spring water from Poland, a 12-pack of toilet paper, a few pairs of socks, an iPhone charger, a AAA battery pack, and whatever else you just grabbed no. because he needs it, but simply because he’s at a Target, and he looks up and sees the best quarterback in NFL history.
Well, if you live in Tom Brady’s neighborhood, this could happen to you.
During a SiriusXM Town Hall interview this week, Brady talked about how he always likes to provide fans he encounters with a memorable experience, but it’s not always easy to do.
“I always want to overdeliver for people. When people meet me outside on the street or when people in the neighborhood, I always want to feel like they were going, ‘Hey man, that guy was a cool guy. I enjoyed meeting that guy. ‘ That is an effort thing. If I take my kids to, say, Target, to go shopping, I want to be with them and spend time with them and people will see me and I don’t have my playful face. I’m in my familiar mode. So some of those experiences can be difficult to navigate because I don’t want them to go away thinking, ‘Oh, I met that guy. He’s a real idiot. “
The first is the first. Many, many years ago, when I was doing Hot Clicks, I interviewed Brady in person and was impressed by how personable and engaging he was during our conversation. I even asked her if she would confirm or deny the rumors that Gisele was pregnant at the time and she replied, “I like working on it.” Then I can confirm that he practices what he preaches.
Now let’s get back to what is important here. TOM BRADY HAS TARGET SHOPPING.
The man’s net worth is $ 250 million. His wife’s net worth is $ 521 million. And buy in the same store as us. This just makes me like it even more. But the bigger question is this: What exactly does Tom Brady buy at Target?
Other questions: Are you randomly tossing things into the cart, like most Target shoppers, or do you go with a list? Do you have a Target credit card so you can save 5% on your purchases? Do you self-pay?
The United States needs the answers to these questions, and I hope we get them.
