Tom Brady on youth sports: Let kids be kids

Brady, father of 3, was asked about youth sports on WEEI today: "I’ve made a comment for a while now: ‘I hope my kids are late bloomers in whatever they do.’ ...

I don’t know how it’s taken that turn, but you know, sometimes it’s nice for kids to just be kids." 'It's just different now'
