#TBT: Tom Brady Pays Homage to Boyhood Idol Joe Montana

It wouldn’t be Throwback Thursday without Tom Brady chiming in.

In today’s entry on Facebook, Brady is shown as a young toddler — guessing six years old — dressed in an old school San Francisco 49ers baseball cap posing like Joe Montana in a ‘Niners jersey.

The caption reads: “You prepare your whole life for games like this one #tbt.”

In Saturday’s game against the Ravens, Brady’s third touchdown pass sent him past Montana into the record books with his 46th postseason touchdown pass.

Brady idolized Montana while growing up in No. California and attended the 1981 NFC Championship game when Montana threw the famous game winning TD pass to Dwight Clark to beat the Cowboys 28-27.


On Monday, an image of Brady riding a blue horse appeared on TB12’s illustrious Facebook page.

The caption under the image read, “six days.”

Brady was asked about the image of him riding a Colt Wednesday at Gillette Stadium.

“That was just a friendly post, you don’t like that?,” Brady said when asked how the picture ended up on his Facebook page. “You’ve got to ‘like’ that.”

After a few chuckles Brady added, “I didn’t make that graphic… yeah, I liked it.”
