Tom Brady the quarterback for the New England Patriots is the star of a new Chinese television show. At 41 years old, Brady still plays like he’s in his early thirties. He attributes his fountain of youth to a wacky anti-inflammation diet and his new exercise regiment. He has 5 Super Bowl rings and is arguably the greatest quarterback to ever play in the NFL. Also, he’s married to supermodel Giselle Bundchen, but one thing he doesn’t have is his own television show. However, that’s all about to change because Tom Brady has his own television show called the “Tom Brady China Show” according to Radii China.
The show is being produced by Tencent, a Chinese internet company who signed a deal with the NFL to help spread football overseas. There will be a total of eight episodes in total where Tom will be quizzed on Chinese idioms, to using chopsticks to pick up shoes. The show will air until December.

Brady visited China last year for an Under Armor campaign and said that it would be a “dream” to play football in China.
In an interview with ESPN, he said, “My dream is to play a game here in China someday. We had an opportunity, I think, 10 years ago, and my team was going to play here, and unfortunately, it didn’t work out. But one day I hope that there are many games here, and over the course of a year, because it’s such a great sport and because I love it so much, to bring that here and to bring the discipline and incredible strategy involved.”
This is all part of a campaign by the NFL to expand into China. I don’t think it’s going to work as well as they think it is. Tom Brady is famous but he isn’t China famous. What they should do is encourage Chinese American kids to play football and if one makes it to the NFL, market the s**t out of him. But considering the NFL is lacking Chinese players I guess Tom Brady will have to do for now. So here’s a video of him I think doing Tai Chi.
