Tom Brady had a nice moment and some advice for a boy who asked him how to handle the haters.
“How are you able to focus despite the negative fan base, aka the Haters?” Brady said, repeating the question the boy asked him so the throng of media in attendance at Monday night’s Super Bowl media session could hear.
“I don’t know. What do we do about the haters? Brady asked. “We love ’em. We love ’em. We love ’em back because we don’t hate back. We appreciate it, and we love ’em, and we wish them the best in their life.”
Does that apply to young Ace Davis, too? The 10-year-old, who attends Millcreek Elementary in Lexington, won his science fair working on a project that hypothesized that Brady was a cheater for deflating footballs.
Hypothesizing that “under-inflated footballs provide a competitive advantage in a game,” the Davis family took turns throwing footballs at different PSI — measuring for distance and accuracy.
His father, Christopher Davis, posted the results on Facebook, and they weren’t flattering for the Patriots’ franchise quarterback.
