New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was almost brought to tears during his hour-long podium session ahead of the Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas by a 7-year-old fan during a media Q & A.
"Many people say you're their hero, but who's your hero?" Joseph Perez who won a contest and was allowed to ask the player one question asked Gisele Bündchen’s husband.
"Who's my hero? That's a great question. Well, I think my dad is my hero," Brady answered. "Because he's someone I look up to every day."
Brady faced a second question on the subject after one reporter asked him how his relationship with his father influences the one he has with his own children.
"He was just a great example for me and he was always someone that supported me in everything that I did, to come home at night and to bring me out and hit me ground balls and fly balls. I loved baseball growing up and to have a chance to go to 49 games on the weekend with him and my mom and throw the ball in the parking lot at the games. Those are memories that I'll have forever, so you want to try to instill those in your kids, too."
