It seems every few weeks Tom Brady is doing something that’s never been done before.
He won a Super Bowl at the age of 44.
He almost destroyed a Lombardi Trophy by tossing it 20 feet from one boat to another.
And this weekend, he will be attending the NFL Hall of Fame induction ceremony of his old rival and good friend Peyton Manning.
Manning told the world the news as he was interviewed on Fox during the Hall of Fame game on Thursday night.
“Tom Brady is coming in, sitting in my section. I’m not sure how my Colts teammates will handle that, but that means a lot that he’s taking the time.
Brady will actually skip some practices at Tampa Bay Bucs’ training camp do make the trip to Canton, Ohio. The place Brady will be inducted exactly five years after he finally decides to retire.
The two legendary quarterbacks had an awesome rivalry and provided so many magical moments for football fans. There teams met a total of 17 times, with Brady going 11-6 in those matchups.
However, in the games that really counted in the playoffs, Manning had the upper hand winning three of their five showdowns.
Ironically, the very first start Brady had in the NFL, way back on September 30, 2001 came against Manning and the Colts.
Here’s what Brady said about Manning when he was voted into the Hall of Fame a few months ago.
“Peyton was someone that I always just admired as a quarterback, as a leader of a team. I always looked up to Peyton because he was a little older than me and always doing things the right way. His team was always in it. I know our teams had a rivalry against one another, but when you went against a Peyton-led team, you were going against the best team in the league. It’s no real surprise that he’d be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.”
