Patriots quarterback Tom Brady once got attacked by a military working dog during training camp, he told reporters during a press conference this week.
The incident happened during a team practice, according to Brady, when Patriots owner Robert Kraft brought out some military members to see the team do its thing. While other players headed to mid-field to greet the veterans, Brady — who didn’t see the dogs — raised his arms, which led one of them to lunge at his throat.
Its handler pulled it back, but the dog still latched onto Brady’s thigh. I’ll just speculate at this point that perhaps the dog was a New York Jets fan.
“I was standing there with a bunch of tough guys and they all saw it,” Brady said. “They asked if I was OK and I said, ‘of course I’m OK.’ But I could feel the cut. Obviously, I couldn’t say anything because I was with the toughest guys in the world. So I just sucked it up.”
“I have a nice little scar on my quad thanks to that night. I learned a very valuable lesson,” he added.
In other news, Brady also said he’d rather fight a horse-sized duck instead of 100 duck-sized horses. So perhaps the Philadelphia Eagles should field a horse-sized duck on its defensive line this Sunday.
