Usually a story that begins with ‘Florida man’ is a good one, and this is no different.
A Florida man was cited and thrown out of a public park after being caught working out despite the park being closed due to the lockdowns associated with the Coronavirus pandemic.
A Parks & Recreation staffer was on patrol Monday when he spotted a man in the park, having to tell the man to leave the park after seeing him getting a sweat in. He then realized that man was six-time Super Bowl champion and new Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
Here’s the mayor of Tampa Bay speaking on the matter:
Tom Brady may have won six Super Bowls, but like the rest of us, he’s just trying to find a place to work out. Tampa mayor @JaneCastor said in today’s briefing that a @tampaparksrec employee approached a man working out downtown and told him the park was closed. It was @TomBrady. pic.twitter.com/etrPdrrGsN
