Brady Gives Back To Tampa Bay

April 8th, 2020

“Oh Tom, you have such a big heart.”

Joe generally doesn’t write about charitable efforts of players for one simple reason: Fans care about wins.

Also, just about every player has a charity of some sort they work with and many donate anonymously. Yes, some are more active in the community than others.

About the only time Joe can remember writing about players and the community was when Clinton McDonald and Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, bought food trucks and served people food in St. Petersburg after Hurricane Irma tore up the city. The effort allowed folks who were without power for days to have a hot meal on the house.

Joe thought that was extraordinary and beyond thoughtful, hence the story.

So the only reason Joe is bringing readers the following is that new quarterback Tom Brady is wasting no time making his presence felt in Tampa Bay.

Per Chelsea Tatham of WTSP-TV Channel 10, Brady and his model wife, Gisele Bündchen, have donated cash to buy 750,000 meals for needy families throughout the Tampa Bay area. Given the economic fallout from [national advertisers don’t like that word] and so many not working, Tatham points out the requests for meals from the charity have grown.

Hell, the sheets in Derek Jeter’s house haven’t yet been changed since Brady and his wife moved in and Gisele likely doesn’t even know how to get to International Plaza, and already Brady and his wife are helping out those in need.

That’s pretty cool in Joe’s eyes.

    Tom Brady and his Wife are Class Acts !

  4. Youngbucs Says:

    Lol joe but your article before this was about our ex QB 😂

  5. Darin Says:

    Fans care about good people too. Some even buy Warrick Dunn jerseys but not Aqib Talibs, among others. Too many bad people and nobody will care if they lose. Keep those stories coming.

  6. Casual Observer Says:

    They define a class act.

  7. Wesley Says:

    Everything in me doesn’t want to like him.

    Interesting.. I thought it was passing yards.

  10. Mike Johnson Says:

    Brady’s gonna be giving a lot to the tampa Bay area..while he recups on injured reserve. Hell, wouldn’t you? with 50 mil guaranteed?

  11. Nick2 Says:

    I never liked the Patriots because they win so much probably but I never could dislike Tom Brady. He just seemed to nice and too genuine. Heard him on Stern today but I have to say forget the QB part, we could have a better person for our offensive leader right now. I think things are going to brighten in this town and I think Tom Brady even at his age is going to great things for the Bucs!!!!

  12. Youngbucs Says:

    If Brady’s giving back to Tampa, that really hot wife would be a good start.

  13. DoooshLaRue Says:

    The real story today is…..

    Check your sheets….kudos to me.

  14. Youngbucs Says:

  16. Nick2 Says:

    Youngbucs, That comment wasn’t necessary.

  17. Bird Says:

    Mike johnson

    And you would have given jaMeis
    5 years 150 mil

    So whats your point ?

  18. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Someone also used my handle on the Cam Jordan post at 4:20…Could you please do some investigative work, Mr. Joe? Thanks!

  19. ©MadMax Says:

    Mr.Brady has always been charitable….but things are in a different uproar this time. Thank you Sir! The GOAT at much more than just football. Thank you God for landing this gift on our team.


  20. ElioT Says:

    Yeah why write about charitable efforts of any player when you get more clicks on meaningless posts with regurgitated stories, all day long?

  21. ElioT Says:

    Comment blocked.

    Don’t question the Joe.

    Joe is not a charity. This is a business. Joe didn’t get to be the most-read Bucs site by pumping out stuff people don’t give a damn about.

  23. Joe Says:


    Wrong again.

  24. Buczilla Says:

    Cool story about what Jameis and McDonald did. Not that I needed another reason to be happy that Brady is here, but that was a damn nice thing to do as well.

  25. ElioT Says:

    If you paid any money to the person who built or maintains this site, you’ve been charitable enough.

  26. Chris K Says:

    Awesome stuff!

  27. Joe Says:

    If you paid any money to the person who built or maintains this site, you’ve been charitable enough.

    Sorry ElioT, don’t expect many more charitable stories. But of course, covers players dropping cash on (you pick) as if it is an actual Bucs game. Wonder why Joe gets better traffic? 🤔

  28. ©MadMax Says:

    @Eliot, whats your problem dude? Lonely?

  29. Delusional Intelligence Says:

    Here i fixed it for you Lee.

    ….when Clinton McDonald and America’s Turnover Machine, the vulgar remarks making, Shelton Quarles shoving, Pick-6 throwing, Wet Willie giving, squirrel hunting, soda stealing, crab leg shoplifting, ‘W’ eating, property damaging, BB gun shooting, Jamboree jamming, uber driver groping, potential sex offender, Jameis Winston, bought food trucks and served people food in St. Petersburg…..

  30. PSK Bucs Fan Says:

    What BS Joe, you write about every friggin fund raiser Bucs players, coaches, and owners have. Are these not donations? C’mon man! Oh and good for them.

  31. '79 Defense Says:

    I didn’t know that story about Jameis. Say what you want about him, his past, and of course the int’s, but the guy did a lot of great things to help people. Too bad these players aren’t appreciated more for how they contribute in that way.

  32. Old School Athlete Says:

    Joe, thanks for the story. I don’t know why some readers are so upset about it. Probably because they are Saints fans posing as Buc fans and just want to stir the pot. Some people just have to be negative all the time.
    If you were hungry and this donation put food on your table, maybe you would feel differently.
    It’s important to me to hear about things like this. Joe, your site is helping us keep our sanity during this time of upheaval and uncertainty.

  33. Boltcc Says:

    Joe, Good story. I heard TB on Stern and I was really impressed. I never listened to him before because he was the enemy. Just his presence In the Tampa area will make a difference. Looks like the negative comments are from people stuck at home eating too much sugary cereals.
