In more ways than one, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a smooth customer.
At his second AFC championship game press conference, here’s how Brady handled the tricky question about marijuana.
Question: This is the first time you’ll be visiting an NFL city where recreational marijuana use is legal.
Brady: Are you excited about that?
I laughed reading that. And I’m only buzzed on coffee. Brady had one more wisecrack in him.
Question: Has anyone advised the young players against it?
Brady: We haven’t talked about that. Maybe you guys (can) tell me what that’s all about.
Beau-ti-ful! Finally, Brady turned serious.
Question: I was just wondering if it would be a temptation.
Brady: Hopefully not. This is a very important game for us and it’s a business trip.
