Tampa Mayor Apologizes To Tom Brady After He Got Kicked Out Of Public Park Earlier This Week
Tampa mayor Jane Castor wants to give Tom Brady a better welcome to the city than he’s received so far.
Earlier this week, the new Buccaneers QB was kicked out of a public park during the city’s stay-at-home order while looking for a place to work out.
“But you know our parks are closed down and so a lot of our parks staff, they patrol around just to make sure people aren’t doing contact sports and things and saw an individual working out in one of our downtown parks. And she went over to tell him that it was closed and it was Tom Brady.”
On Sunday, Mayor Castor penned a letter to Brady and Rob Gronkowski welcoming them to the city.
In the letter, Castor lightheartedly apologizes to Brady for the “miscommunication” they had last week and thanked him and his wife, Gisele Bundchen, for their recent donation of 750,000 meals to Feeding Tampa Bay.
“Tom, my apologies for the miscommunication when you arrived — not the best first impression,” “But given my law enforcement background, I couldn’t help but have someone investigate the G.O.A.T. running wild in one of our beautiful city parks. No harm — no foul, and thanks for being a good sport.”
