Based on the way his game against the Los Angeles Rams is going, the last thing Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady needs right now is intimidation from Mark Wahlberg. But that’s what the movie star had on his mind when he posted a muscle-bound video to Instagram today.
First, we need a little bit of background. Hailing from Dorchester, Massachusetts, Mark Wahlberg was raised a Patriot’s fan through and through. We wouldn’t dare call the “Patriot’s Day” star old, but he has been a Pats fan since well before Tom Brady came along in 2000. It only makes sense that he’d continue to be one after Brady’s relocation to Tampa Bay. While Brady may be responsible for every Super Bowl the New England Patriots have won, the QB isn’t aligned with Wahlberg anymore.
Well, that brings us to today. Mark Wahlberg’s Patriots have gotten off to a slow start this season. They suffered their second loss of the year today at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. Already frustrated and eyeing the team’s schedule, Wahlberg realized that the Pats play Brady’s Bucs next week.
“That’s okay. 1-2, baby. Humble beginnings. Self-made, just like Municipal. You know what’s gonna have to happen? We’re gonna have to beat up on Tom Brady next week. LET’S GO!” Mark Wahlberg said with intensity.
Now, if it wasn’t clear already, Mark Wahlberg has tons of love for Tom Brady. The two are reportedly pals and worked on the movie “Ted 2” together, per Bustle. But all of that is put to the side when lifelong fandom gets involved. Sorry, Tom. It’s nothing personal. Mark doesn’t want you to beat the Pats next Sunday.
Mark Wahlberg Has to Sit in the Car During His Kids’ Football Games
Well, that goes for any of his kids’ sporting events. Mark Wahlberg is too recognizable a figure. Of course, the benefits outweigh the positives in the eyes of most people. But one of the drawbacks to that level of fame is causing distraction.
“Me being in the public eye, there are pros to that, but there’s a lot of cons. My kids wanna have their own identity, you know? I’m not allowed to get out of the car at football practice or a game. I gotta sit in the car and watch,” Wahlberg told Entertainment Tonight in July. “At first I took it personally, because I wanna be there to support them, but supporting them is by making them feel comfortable in what they’re doing and them having their own identity too.
Who knows? Maybe Wahlberg will be able to watch them win a Super Bowl for the Patriots someday. Something tells us he won’t be sitting in the car.
