Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had to be fished out of the Charles River after capsizing a rented kayak, according to a report on The Boston Herald’s website, although the report only says the incident happened “the other day.”
Brady and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, rented a pair of kayaks, but then Brady tipped his and had trouble getting back in.
“He had to be rescued,” an onlooker told The Boston Herald. “The launch guy went out and got him and got him back in the kayak. He’s been bragging about it ever since. He’s telling everyone he rescued Tom Brady.”
Patriots spokesperson Stacey James had not heard about the incident when contacted by the newspaper, and Brady apparently showed no setbacks with his knee injury after he and his teammates teed off at the annual New England Patriots Charitable Foundation Golf Tournament on Monday.
Jay Hanks – “It just goes to show you that anyone can swim out of their boat, no matter who you are. The river is indifferent to fame and fortune. But I have to ask – Was he wearing a PFD???”
